Topic: Resting (fresh roast, that is...) (9 msgs / 167 lines)
1) From: Mark A. Chalkley
Which beans require the least and most rest before their taste reaches
"optimum" level?
I know this is a very subjective question, but I'm hoping to get some
trends and general information on the subject. Besides, due to
circumstances almost beyond my control, I've just run out of roasted
beans, so I'm getting ready to roast some - and I'd like to be able to
make some more coffee a little later today.  Not that I'm pressuring
you folks for a quick response or anything... ;>)

Java Jampit, to my taste, requires the least resting.  In fact, it
starts to taste boring after 24 hours.  Next order, I plan on getting
quite a bit of it for those times when I didn't notice I was low on
roasted coffee.
BTW, off topic, my name is Lissa, not Lisa.  No big deal, except I get a
little confused sometimes when someone is responding to me, and using
the wrong name.
Be well,
Lissa

Thanks, Lissa, for the feedback.  Bummer, though, because that's one I
don't currently have.  On the next order...

As a VERY general rule, I've found that lighter roasts require and tolerate 
more resting than darker roasts.  Yemen Moka Raimi seems to require and 
tolerate very little rest, if any, in my experience too.
YMMV and all other traditional disclaimers, of course.

I believe that roast profile has a lot of influence on the rest needed. My
longer 5 to 10 minute profiles seem best within the first 4 to 6 hours, with
a steady decline after that. My fast profiles (3 minutes to second) are very
good from the roaster, but peak in about 24 to 36 hours, with a slower
decline to staleness. Bean origin seems to be unimportant.

That's an interesting idea and one I don't remember running across
before. My HWI roasts are closer to what you term "longer" profiles.
Well, I'll be brewing some Java Blawan in a few minutes that will only
have rested a couple hours, so we'll see...

Well, in my experience, the decafs (at least the MC Ghimbi) are fine 
shortly after roasting. Malabar Gold takes at least two days to be 
palatable, and Moka Kadir seems to take three to really develop its 
flavor. On the other hand, I seem to recall brewing PNG and Yauco 
Selecto fairly quickly, as well as a mild Brazil. Hope this helps.

I forgot to mention, my absolute favorite for that use is Yirg. It 
seems to have wonderful grapefruit notes shortly after roasting, and 
is dead (or at least just like other coffees) three days later.
Best,
