Topic: Stash's (15 msgs / 342 lines)
1) From: Vicki Smith
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.

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.

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.

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.

I have been of stash reduction for months now, and I'm down to about  
100 pounds.  I've "mostly" kept to reduction.  Even stash reduction  
is fun!
Oh, my goodness, I can't begin to imagine 500 pounds!  I wonder how  
much Sweet Maria's has on hand usually.

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.....

That is a good question, I wonder if someone in the know might weigh in

Just recently, I started vac packing some roasted beans for emergency use. I
weigh out a pot's worth, vac and freeze.  Just in case....S..t happens.  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.
Take care,
Ann

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.

Well, they said they sold 400,000 lbs last year.

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.
