Topic: Homeroasting causes anguish, anxiety (2 msgs / 31 lines)
1) From: Floyd Lozano
I am not a decider.  I pore over pizza menus, and the choices dance before
me.  Pineapple and prosciutto?  Pepperoni and pepperoncini?  Imagine then my
horror, my anguish, my crippling anxiety every week as I open my cabinets,
the ones that hold my 30+ varieties of green coffees and wonder, what will I
roast this day?  Will I want chocolates, hazelnuts, plums or mangoes?
Bananas or strawberries?  Limes or lemons, blueberries or tobacco?  They
taunt me, cajole me, beckon me.  Roast me!  I am your ideal coffee!  No, me,
how better a way to greet the day than with my complex aromas and flavors!
I reach for one bag, then another, no, yet again, this one, no!  The other!
Curse you, little green devils!

Floyd, I am the same way... my solution is to close my eyes, reach into the
big bucket that holds all the greens, and surprise
myself.
I end up doing the same - "this is my favorite" ends up being whatever
delicious elixir I have happened to roast & brew at the moment.

(only problem, now that I am running out of greens, I'll HAVE to make a
decision soon...which to choose, which to choose??)
