Topic: Subject: Re: Sour smelling & tasting beans... (43 lines)
1) From: Cameron Forde
Hi Sheila,
I believe that green beans should not be assessed duty or tax under
NAFTA.  I had to pay the first time I had greens shipped.  I promptly
applied for and received a refund.  Since then all my other shipments
have come through without the duty and tax.
As for roasting decaf beans, I usually increase the batch size in my
hottop (300 g instead of 250 g).  The larger decaf load roasts with
the same profile as the regular beans.  For Tom's espresso donkey
blend I roast about 15 s into 2nd crack.
Hope that helps,
Cameron
