Hi Rick, I'm not Mike but from every experiance I've had the lighter the roast the more it needs to outgas, probably because it retains more gas

I just posted a partial letter by hitting the wrong button, sorry.I was trying to say that lighter roasted coffee retains more gas to "out" and some beans are darn near undrinkable when light roasted without a good rest, but dark roasted ones might just be dull. So, I guess this is a referance to peruse.:')

I find that the light roasts have a tendency toward the sour taste that 
can go away with three days of resting.  Since this is a taste that I 
gag on, I always let a light roast rest more so I start with the darker 
end.
