Topic: Stash complaint level reached. (12 msgs / 275 lines)
1) From: Jim Gundlach
Today Carol and I were working on moving the pantry and converting  
the old pantry into a laundry room.  Just a couple of quotes:
     "Do you realize how much coffee you have?"
     "This is one hell of a lot of coffee here."
     I did not mention that twelve more pounds were on the way.

We must be on the same wavelength.  My wife went to the garage with me to
"see the stash" because I wanted to order more.  She pointed out that I have
plenty of coffee and there is no need for an order at this time.  Who
knows,  maybe I can sneak an order under the radar.

Jim,
That is one reason I have my stash in two places.

You could always have the rabbit stop in Colorado enroute. My holding service could prevent your ever having to explain an inopportune delivery to Ms. G.

I have had the stash divided also, the problem is that we are  
remodeling/rearranging kitchen space and in order to do the work we  
had to combine pantries.  However, in our new kitchen I get ten feet  
of wall space to make into my coffee center.  I will have upper and  
lower cabinets, my own sink with a stainless drain board for the  
plumbed espresso machine.  My ten feet of counter space, that  
includes the sink, should handle any brewing equipment and grinders I  
want out for use or display.  While that may seem like a lot of space  
to devote to coffee, our new kitchen will have 117 feet of walls/ 
windows and a little over 500 square feet of floor space, so there  
will be plenty of room.

Yup, splitting stash works well. Here's an old pic' ('02 IIRC but maybe '01)
of my in sight 'roast from' greens storage. Know it's old 'cuz was still
doing 1/3# Rosto batches before transitioning to split wired dual boost
variable voltage control 1/2# batch Rosto roasting.http://mdmint.home.comcast.net/coffee/greenstorage.htm 
My overflow storage is the bottom drawer of 4' wide lateral oak file cabinet
in my home office instead of cardboard file boxes.

I am in the process of packing so that I can move into my new place and did
not realize how much coffee I had in my stash until today and I have 12 more
lbs on the way.  I can't wait to see the movers faces when they have to move
six boxes labeled coffee.

This reminds me of a similar experience I had.  About two years ago I 
reached an all time stash high of 260 pounds.  I had just finished 
taking inventory, used every Mason jar in the house as well as most of 
my Foodsaver bags to vac seal my greens,  entered everything into a 
spread sheet and was rather proud of myself.  So proud, in fact, that I 
was was forced to make a bragging comment to Mickie.  Now one thing you 
must know, as smart as Mickie is, she cannot (will not) do arithmetic in 
her head.  She is a braniac with pencil and paper, but she can't do math 
in her head.  Period.  Now... "Look Honey, I just put my complete 260 
pound coffee inventory on a spreadsheet so I can track everything and 
never be caught short".  I somehow knew I crossed some invisible line 
that couldn't be uncrossed.  A moment of deafening silence followed by 
"You have 260 pounds of coffee and you are afraid of being caught 
short?" and "Doesn't coffee cost about $5 a pound?"  I knew I was doomed 
as I said something like "more or less" and about 2 seconds later heard 
"What the heck are we doing with $1300 worth of green coffee?"
It is the last time I took inventory and the last time I have mentioned 
stash size.
I have 12# on the way :-)
