It'll smell like coffee for a day or two, and then the odor turns
funky. Not locker room funky, and not necessarily a bad odor, just
odd and not outright pleasant, and it does not immediately bring
coffee to mind. I wouldn't mind it myself, but my wife is not a big
fan. And we plan to sell this house within the next couple of years,
and I don't want to risk having any lingering odor turn off potential
buyers. I mean, I did a few roasts in one bathroom probably 6 weeks
ago, and there is still a faint odor when I walk in there. (This is a
bathroom that isn't much used, and stays closed most of the time, so
not much air circulation.) What would happen if I did it regularly?
Probably the odor would really sink into the walls, and no amount of
scrubbing would clear it out. A buyer could be really turned off by
any unusual smell, even if it's not a particularly foul smell.
