Topic: Coffee grades (SHB, Grade 1, AA, etc) (6 msgs / 120 lines)
1) From: Seth Grandeau
I've seen several different grades in SM listings and I was wondering what
they mean/how they compare.  I've seen SHB (Strictly Hard Bean), Grade 1
(which I believe relates to defects, as in none), and AA (which I believe
relates to size).
What do all these grades mean and how do they compare to each other?
Thanks.
-Seth
