Topic: POLL: How many different coffees in your stash? (25 msgs / 468 lines)
1) From: John Mac
I just did a little organizing and found that I have 24 different types and
two blends of Tom's finest greens.
My wife thinks in "touched", (but doesn't complain about all the great
coffee I brew.)
What's in your closet? (no skeletons please) ;-)
Cheers,
John in Nor Cal

13 and 3 blends.

3) From: Michael Irrera
I've got 81 lbs of 29 different beans, at the moment.  And that's  
after having been on stash reduction since April, when I was at about  
120 lbs.
My goal is to get down to about 20 lbs so I can start ordering some of  
the interesting coffees everyone's been talking about lately.  Right  
now I'm drinking last year's Guat San Jose Ocana.  Nothing wrong with  
that one, but I'd like to be able to get some of the new ones, too.

AdkMike,
I'm drinking last year's Ocana, as well.  I got this to the start of second
crack, and I liked it better a little lighter, C+/FC.  Still pretty good,
though.  I'll post stash numbers tonight.  I know it's about 60 lbs, but not
sure the # of origins.

6) From: MJR
I don't know whether people get into collecting beans like baseball cards
(or in my case knives) or you all just drink a LOT more coffee than I do!
As it turns out, I go through a little more than 2lb of beans in a month,
So 12 lbs of various treats from SM lasts me about 5 months. I don't want
to store even raw beans more than 6 months or so, so I end up ordering
from SM two or three times a year. My most recent (received only 3 days
ago) includes 4 African, and 2 Central American lots, and a pound of the
Malabar "monsooned coffee" I just had to try. In previous orders (now
consumed) I've tried and enjoyed beans from those same places as well as
SE Asia, So. America, and the Middle East. So far I've enjoyed everything
I've ever gotten from SM, though the Africans and Sumatrans are consistent
favorites (yes I'm trying both the wet and dry Koriatie).

I counted 46 different coffees... No wonder my wife looks at me that  
way when a new box arrives from Sweet Marias.

Don't know at the moment. Once inventoried 63 different greens in stash.
(But to keep in perspective 17 of them were different Konas and 3 different
JBMs and 4 different ISH and even Kopi Luwak but Gesha hadn't come on the
scene yet:-)

About 35 pounds of 22 varieties, at the moment.  That's about as low as our
stash has been in ten years.  Time to consider another order of Sweet
Maria's good stuff.

59 lbs of 47 types.   Many are small remnants from my original sampler.  I

18) From: Pat Sklenar
Not counting gifts, I tend to go through 1 to 2 pounds per week.
29# total on hand ...
     5# total Kona on hand (1# each of two Pele Plantation estates, 3# 
of SM Kowali Farms)
     Remaining 24# made up of 11 different beans
28# on order (delivery expected today)
     5# each of a Tanzania, a Guatemala and a Columbia
     2# each of 2 Ethiopians, 2 Panamas and a Costa Rica
     1# each of 3 Hawaii (non-Kona)
May also have to buy another 5 to 10# for my Christmas gifts (I gave 20# 
last year, each a mix of 1/4# each of 4 different beans).  Oh, and i 
definitely need some more Kona.  :)

I made a spreadsheet but i haven't kept it up to date the past month.
At last count I had something like 140#, maybe 30 different varieties.
 some pounders, some 5s.  a couple 10's of the staples or 'special
buys'.  we drink maybe 2.5# a week in the house, and then i roast 1 or
2# a week for others, depending on when i see them.  i do have too
much coffee on hand, but when a good buy comes along (Geshafest) I
can't turn it down!  I just invested in a Foodsaver and have begun
vacpacking my beans to maintain max freshness (at least the max i can
get without also buying a freezer!)

Let us know what you think of the the new SM Hawaiians.  I've been toying
with ordering them, but my stash is high, particularly with Kona and Maui

Will do.  My package just arrived.  Yum!  But even with these three 
pounds, my Kona/Hawaii stash is only up to 8#.  not enough for my own 
enjoyment *AND* to gift with my Christmas gifts this year.  I'm going to 
have to get at least another 5# (probably more) before the holidays.
A couple of non-Hawaiian things that amazed me because I don't think I 
saw anyone mention them - one of my new beans is the Costa Rica RIP Red 
Honey ... the darn beans look like roasted peanuts with that parchment 
on there!  And the 2# bag of them looks darn near the same size as my 5# 
bags of other beans (although it's obviously only as heavy as the other 
2# bags I bought)!!
