Topic: Roasted Beans - Storage & Tem (2 msgs / 30 lines)
1) From: Michael Wascher
Jorge,
Compared to the standard commercial coffees that are available? Those might
have been sitting on a shelf for years. So there's no reason your homeroast
couldn't be left on a shelf for years. But then they'd taste like crap too.
So why would you do it?
One of the reasons I homeroast is freshness. Most beans are best within a
week of being roasted. After 2 weeks most are past their prime. I've been
forced to use 4 week old beans, couldn't access my roaster, and they were
still better than any other coffee that was available to me. But beyond
that? No thank you.

My rule is after 2 weeks, I give it away to people I don't like, or throw it
away ;)  I try to not roast what I can't use or give to friends in a week.
