You folks with REALLY BIG stashes - be careful.
To protect youselves from disaster, I am willing to take some of those 
dangerous beans off you hands.    Ship them to me ASAP.
Tom & Maria - you be careful too!

6 Workers Crushed by Coffee Beans
6 Workers Crushed to Death by Tons of Coffee at Honduras Warehouse
TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras Jan 17, 2007 (AP) A concrete wall collapsed at a 
Honduran coffee warehouse Wednesday, crushing six workers under tons of 
bagged coffee beans, emergency officials said.
Authorities said eight workers were bagging beans in the warehouse in the 
city of Villanueva, about 120 miles north of Tegucigalpa, when a concrete 
wall gave way, unleashing the avalanche of coffee.
Two workers were hospitalized but it wasn't immediately clear how seriously 
they were hurt, authorities said.

What's your current stash level?  I run about 60lbs on average, but roast
3lbs a week.

John,
It certainly has been a progression for me from when I first started
roasting 7yrs ago.  I started out home-roasting (and ordering) fairly small
quantities and had little idea my needs would grow as much as they have.  A
large variety is something that I've always loved and right now, I have
roughly 30 or so on hand.  I also do a fair amount of blends where 3 or 4
coffees are involved.  I always have two different coffees prepared at one
time and when those two batches are blends it can involve upwards of 8
varieties.  Then you have gifts of coffee once friends and relatives sample
your wares.
All I can say is that if you do this long enough, it's hard to keep to 8lbs.
Today, that would hold me for about 3 weeks.  :^)
