Topic: Odd Bean Batches (9 msgs / 131 lines)
1) From: Bill Laine
What do you guys do with leftover beans that aren't enough to brew by
My guess is that most of you pitch them in the grinder all together and see
what comes out. Is that right? Or is that too anti-gourmet?

I keep a jar in my freezer and when I get down to a handful of beans at the
end of a batch (and I have a couple of new batches burning a hole in my
pocket - so to speak) I toss them in there. We use this motley collection on
those days when we run out of fresh beans and I just can't get out to
roast.  They're obviously not in peak condition but much better than grocery
store beans.

How many (average) days of rest on that blend?

5) From: Kris McN
Yeah, best not to think about it too long, but probably not more than 2
months.  Still better than crap beans, or, heaven forbid, no coffee!
Actually, if you believe Mike Sivetz, beans will stay fresh for months in
the freezer.  On the door out of Sivetz Coffee Roasting here in Corvallis
there's a graph posted showing how fast beans stale at room temperature vs.
in the freezer.  Room temp - 10 days to two weeks, in the freezer - months.
Not advocating, just reporting.

you are correct, toss them all in the hopper and see what happens.

Well pretty good guess I just a few days ago had l little of this and a few
beans leftover from that and some over here and there so figured what the
hell mixed them together ground them and had a Aeropress moment!  Well it
was good I mean very good and never to be repeated!!!  Sometimes your
mistakes end up being you're best ever....

I just put them in a batch of whatever I am brewing next.
What do folks do with left over green beans that are too few to roast
