Topic: Low Stash! (10 msgs / 181 lines)
1) From: Justin Nevins
I just finished roasting tonight, and realized I have about 5 pounds of
greens. Where in the world did it all go? I had 12 pounds less than a month
ago! The scary part is that now I have the strange inclination to place at
least a 50 pound order. I don't think my wife would go for that, so maybe
just 25 pounds. I have a feeling that I am a lightweight compared to a lot
of you though.
Anyway, I must order wisely, or I may have to eat like a college student
again for a while.
Out of curiosity, what would you guys consider a "low stash"?

Justin,
I have had a stash of over 100 kilos,  I would like a stash between 10 and
50 pounds.  I am getting close to the 50 pound mark.  I do roast for my two
daughters too.  I don't like having\ a stash so big that when some coffee
comes along that is one of Tom's special small lots, I feel like I have too
much coffee to order it.

Les, if a big stash is really that big a problem for you, I will be more 
than happy to help you get within your set standards.   Please feel free 
to send my way any extra beans that are pushing you over your limit and 
stretching the boundries of your conscience... Ill even pay the postage!
I gave up trying to limit my stash a while ago.
You end up missing a lot of good stuff that way,   just get a pound of 
each to try it, and give more away to friends relatives etc etc.    When 
it becomes known you can make really good coffee, roasted beans make 
great presents for the holidays / birthdays that demand them.....  ie  
stash reducers extrodinaire....

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.
Much under 100# pounds is getting low for this 2 coffee drinker household.
OTOH much over 100# is getting to be too much with potential for being
around too long and loosing quality! (until I get freezer space for greens
storage then heaven help me:-) In other words I currently target
approximately 1 year supply. (Down from 250# pound stash a couple years
ago...)

Hopefully the college student you're emulate is enrolled in a culinary institute. :)

Under 12 pounds.  House of two coffee drinkers and we give about half of the roast
output away as gifts.  My typical roasting session uses a pound or two of greens.

Well, if reading the back of a package of Ramen Noodles counts as culinary
school, then count me in! Seriously, I think I survived my first year of
college on taco bell bean burritos.
About coffee though...I like the idea of not limiting my stash, and just
roasting a lot, but I currently use a popper, so that can be pretty time
consuming. I am currently looking at different methods for larger batch
sizes. I like to tinker, so I will probably end up building something. Until
I do though, I might just have to continue to buy in 7-12# increments.
I will always struggle to balance the desire to have 10+ pounds of every SM
coffee available with the limitations of my income. I know that I'm not the
only one with that problem.

My problem is that I figured I would buy cheaper 2nd source coffee from a
club to practice roasting, but instead I end up buying it and wanting to
roast SM's coffee.  Other places do at times come accross some gems but it's
a lot of hit and miss.  i don't want to sound like a suckup but don't take
that consistent high quality for granted!
-F
ps stash over 100# easy, i figure I will do a big Christmas coffee dump of
the practice beans =)

With 2 day shipping (priority gets here fast from Oakland), 'low stash' is
pretty much 'oh damn i'm out of greens' so long as I have a # roasted and
ready to go!
