What do you guys do with leftover beans that aren't enough to brew by themselves? 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? Bill Laine New Orleans

Bill, 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.

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. Kris McN
Bill: you are correct, toss them all in the hopper and see what happens. ginny ---- Bill Laine wrote: <Snip>
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 alone? dave On Jan 24, 2008, at 10:03 AM, Bill Laine wrote: <Snip>
