People are talking about green beans, not roasted. I'd be very surprised if anyone on the list has more than a week or so of roasted beans on hand, unless something unusual is going on. After all, one of the big reasons for homeroasting is that we have freshly roasted (though properly rested ;) ) beans on hand. I don't keep a big stash, btw. I think the highest mine has ever gotten has been 25 pounds. Sure, I sometimes mourn the passing of a much loved green, but there is another one just a SM order away. I guess I am just a bean slut.

I'm with Vicki, I go through 1/2lb a week as I'm the only coffee drinker in the house (my wife is abstaining presently). My green stash is no more than 20 presently. I have a personal cap at 25 lbs at any one time. On 1/30/07, Vicki Smith wrote: <Snip> -- My home coffee roasting blog:http://homecoffeeroastblog.blogspot.com/Kevin
Hey Beth, I've gotten into the habit of roasting 3/4 lb. batches of 2 different beans each weekend to drink over the week (with the occasional small batch of decaf as needed). We go through that in a week and this lets us try the beans over increasing rest time, and in contrast with each other. This week it's Congo Kivu Peaberry (FC+) and Idido Misty Valley (C+). A goooood week. Kris McN On 1/30/07, beth wrote: <Snip>
Stash refers to geen coffee. I would have a hard time with a 50 pound limit with 50 varietals in the stash. I am hearing the siren call of the Columbia COEs that have just been put on the SM list! Current stash is a bit over 100 pounds. Les On 1/30/07, Kris McN wrote: <Snip>
When Harvey arrives later in the week, the stash will be about 100 pounds and about 60 varietals. I did succumb, Les ... 1 pound each of the Columbia COEs will arrive ... the rest was for customer requests. Eddie On 1/30/07, Les wrote: <Snip>

This is a multi-part message in MIME format. Well a good rule of thumb for me is to roast enought for a week to 10 days and try to roast again before you run out so you can let those wonderful SM beans get their proper rest.....

We might get sick, have an emergency, power loss, etc. where we might not be able to roast. So, if I overestimate and roast more than we can consume or sell, I put the extra in the freezer. I will not drink any other coffee, but mine, so better to have my roasted stash than be deprived all together.

On 1/30/07, Kevin wrote: <Snip> I'm with Vicki, too. I just weighted it and I have 17 different varieties that come to a total of 19 pounds. This is much more than I thought it would come to! We usually drink around a pound a week (just my husband and I). I usually buy 1 to 2 pounds of each (except for Horse, when I bought 5 – still working on it). Also, pick up a 1/2# sampler of 8 once in a while. I try to mix up what's roasted a bit. Right now I have a half jar of Panama Boquete(FC), and full jars of Sumatra Blue Lintong (FC+) and Nicaragua Limoncillo (C+) sitting on the shelf. So that'll do me for the week. One of my mason jars holds the results of 150g green beans roasted in an iR2 and makes two pots worth of coffee.

Hey Barbara, nice to see you... I have been in stash reduction the last couple of months. I am down to about 20/25 pounds. time to buy. ginny ---- Barbara Greenspon wrote: <Snip>
True, but I like my espresso beans with a bit more rest. I've found that Monkey blend is best when rested nearly a week, and I like it into the second week.
