In flagrant violation of accepted practice, I've been taking beans
almost straight from the HWP roaster to the espresso machine.  I
usually let them sit for an hour to fully cool, if I'm patient.
I don't know what horrible taste I'm supposed to discover in these
young beans, but damn, you should see the crema!  I guess all the CO2
that should come out in the bag is going into my double ristretto. :-)
The grind smells wonderful.  I've kept beans in sealed bags for 10
days, and they were just a pale shadow of what they were straight from
the roaster.

I don't think you get a horrible taste from young beans, just not the full 
flavor you would get if you let them sit 12-24 hours first.  One or two 
others on this list, however, dispute that, so yfmv (your flavor may vary).
