1) From: mmroot
We have some green beans we bought but decided were not for our taste
buds
- anyone interested in 4+ lbs of Isle of Saint Helena, Coffee Ground
Farm '99
or
2 lbs of Java Kopi Luwak, Kayumas, Washed
make offer - Coffee beans have been well taken care of.
Please reply to mmroot and not to the whole list.
Thanks,  Martha Root

Martha, I wonder if it is appropriate to sell coffee on a mail list that
is paid for by a green coffee retailer. Have you considered alt.coffee
or eBay?

3) From: mmroot
Hi, thanks for your concern - I got permission before listing - they don't
have it available at this time.

I'm impressed. In the past folks haven't always shown such concern.

Please define "well taken care of" being specific on storage conditions the
past two years. Most beans stored conventionally, even a great bright coffee
like St. Helena, will taste flat in that length of time me thinks. Compared
aged Sumatra to same yr crop Sumatra... Not the same at all.
That said, I offer $15 inc. s/h to find out for myself!
Wait, these are greens, not roasted, right? If not greens offer void.

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.
Is there a limit a person should keep green beans before they "expire"?

Depends on greens storage method (huge area of debate) and rate of
consumption. General rule of thumb 6 months to a year usual storage methods.
'Bout a Ton should be about right:)

I don't know Anthony - if I feel like I'm going to expire my son gets all my
beans :O)
If you buy your beans from Tom, you can safely store them for at least a
year.  If you take the appropriate precautions you can store them for
longer - many of us are vacuum sealing them upon receiving them.  Keep them
in a DRY and cool (not cold) spot and you should be safe.

I tried posting a message awhile back asking if anybody has brought back
green beans from Hawaii and if there is a problem doing so?

My wife and I travel to Kauai at least once every year. I bring back green beans every time with no problem.

I've brought green beans back from Hawaii several times with no issues - I 
still have a pound or so left in my stash from my last trip.  You can't take 
them to Hawaii, though.

Air tight storage buys how much time before roasting?

Depends.
Do you mean air tight vacuum packed greens?
Here is a rough rule that has been around for awhile. I got this from Bryan
Wray.
Babbie's Rule of Fifteens:*
Green Beans should be used in fifteen months.
Roasted beans should be used in fifteen days.
Ground beans should be used in fifteen minutes.
Extracted beans should be served in fifteen seconds.
No mention here of air tight in Babbie list here.
 Commercial roasters don't airtight store several hundred pounds. Mike M.
here on this list will vac pac and freeze special lots to stretch out the
life span.
I have heard good results from this method.
