Topic: Are there coffees that make good espresso (2 msgs / 107 lines)
1) From: miKe mcKoffee
To illustrate Bry's point the past week (Last Friday through today Friday)
I've roasted 134# (four 4x8 40# batches - 160greens) of our main Delirium
espresso blend. Roasts date staggered 10/8-10-13-15 so it's always hitting
the hopper(s) 7 to 9 days rests. I'll roast another 40=33.5 Sunday...
Home you can roast ahead by roasting larger amount and freezing portions to
take out as needed. Either freeze directly after roasting to take out and
then rest OR rest to desired usage rest and freeze for immediate use from
freezer.
At one time I used the freezer method for our first café. Went two years
with every shot pulled being previously frozen keeping the window tight. Far
superior to pulling too fresh or stale beans. Now with three coffeehouses
and some wholesale accts (though all but one wholesale run D'Spro) no need
to keep days rest rotation good and still roast optimum batch size for
efficiency.

2) From: michael kaericher
Thanks Mike!  I think your reply points to a good solution.  =
I will try to build up a back-up stash of roasted and rested beans in my fr=
eezer.  Then if I run out of my fresh roast, I can run on the backup unti=
l the new roast is ready to pull.
Now, I'm off to read all the forum fights that I can find on how to best st=
ore beans in the freezer!
