my bad, should have been more specific. This is what i meant, when you are done roasting your coffee beans how long will the freshly roasted beans produce carbon dioxide. Also does any body store their fresh roasted beans in a carbon dioxide release bag like the ones on sweet maria's
I personally love the valve bags and use them almost exclusively. And this is after I went out and spent about $60 on fancy jars. On 8/1/06, Scjgb3 wrote: <Snip> -- Don
Oh, my- I thought you made reference to the factory that cooks up coffee beans like you would Pinto beans, and more so, in fixing one of the musical burritos: "...how long will it take the beans to release the CD?" Right away, when you put the beans through the warehouse fire they call roasting and serve the resulting Coffee Dreck. (CD) I find that a C+ to FC+ roast will keep outgassing a Phoosh! of CO2 and Aroma! for at least a week after I can it in a fruit jar, post roasting and cooling. That would be a good measure of the "freshness" of purchased whole coffee beans from the coffee emporium. Cheers -RayO, aka Opa! Got Grinder?
Like Ray, I put my roast into pint canning jars, with the two part lids. I wait 12 hours before screwing the lids on tight, and I get that lovely little pop every time I open the jar for about a week with the city+, full city roasts I tend to gravitate toward. I use the valve bags when I give home roast to other folks. I recently sent some to a friend in the US, and she was simply amazed at how much more aroma she got from the beans than when she buys coffee, similarly bagged, from her local "gourmet" roaster. It was her first experience with home roast. She will be ordering her roaster and beans from SM any day now. Vicki Scjgb3 wrote: <Snip>

Vicki- "...every time I open the jar for about a week..." And then what? High time for more roasting! It's a sad clatter when there's only a few beans left in the jar. Of course, it was that desperation that forced me to blend...

Sometimes my sense of humor beats my brain to the email... I've sent an apology offlist, and agree that Scjgb3 asked a very appropriate question. At the same time, on Amazon , I did a music search for "The Beans" and found 84 Results. YMMV. Beans have always brought music to our family - mostly to the boys....
