Topic: Mutt (8 msgs / 125 lines)
1) From: Aaron
Ok, when I roast coffee I usually do 5.5 to 6 ounces per batch in my I 
roast, depending on the bean how much it will take.
Therefore I usually end up with a teeny bit left in the bottom of the 
bag eventually.  An ounce, maybe two, less than 1...I dump them all into 
a bowl and let them accumulate... after all .. I can't roast an ounce 
here, don't think itd work too well.
anyways, last weekend I roasted up a 6 oz batch of my 'mutt' blend, and 
man, that stuff is GOOD.  I don't know what all is in it, I can kind of 
venture a guess but it won't really help, but this mix turned out really 
well.  The taste of the coffee is really great.  It'll probably change  
every time I do it because of a different bean blend in the scoop.... 
either way, the 'mystery roast' is kind of a fun thing to do....   for 
those wondering what to do with their left over tablespoonfulls of green 
beans.... here ya go!

Aaron,
I've considered that exact thing, but I don't have enough stray beans yet..=
.
Heh, the question is whether you were just lucky or if it works all the
time. :)

Well steve, I did this once before and while the taste was still very 
good, the roast was a bit uneven.  The cracks are basically a rolling 
right along as each type of bean is going to go off at a different 
time.  This time though I decided to ramp up the heat a bit hotter up 
front, and bring them to a bit darker to get them overall uniform.  They 
roasted up quite evenly actually and I brought them into probably 15 
seconds of 2nd crack.  I probably got lucky  but overall, if you start 
with good coffees to begin with, unless you really screw up the 
roasting, I dont see how you are going to really be able to ruin it.

Probably true.  Its always hard to tell how two or more "good" flavors will
mix though.  What made me nervous about doing this was some coffee throwing
the balance off and making it taste weird.  It is neat that someone else ha=
s
tried this and it worked.  I might try it here in another couple-a weeks
when I have some more scraps.

Your method seems like more fun than mine. For coffees I  always keep on hand 
(e.g. Monkey blend) I can always make up a full hottop 250 g  batch by using 
up all the old beans and topping up with the same new beans. When  it's a 
coffee I'm not replacing, I will top up with my oldest coffee in the  stash. So 
usually it's a 2 bean blend. Since they're coffees I know separately  by then, 
it's fun to try to detect the separate tastes in the blend. Last night  I had 
215 g CRLM and added 35 g Kona leaving 85 g Kona for future top  up use. Will 
try it as press pot at lunchtime today.

I do the same thing al the time. I just toss the odds and ends into a mason jar, never keping track of what it is since I most likely will never have same coffee again...
I have had mostly good cups from "the stuff" as I call it.
