Topic: jet lag observation (2 msgs / 33 lines)
1) From: Tom Ulmer
Does it seem to anyone else that coffee beans arriving via air freight need
a few days in the cupboard to recuperate from the journey?
Hastening a roast with a new arrival seems to leave the flavors a bit off or
tired. When I first noticed this I figured I'd just wandered off the mark
with my technique. Other times I considered possibly the order was filled
from wrong bin but a few days out of the shipping box and into the bean
pantry always remedies the situation. 
I have no feasible reasoning for the occurrence and the statements made are
based solely on my observation which is certainly questionable at times.

if it's sent air, maybe they get cold in the belly of the plane and needs a
couple days to return to fully "thaw."
just a thought.
 i haven't had your experience, but i don't typically have an opportunity to
roast for a couple days anyway.
