Topic: Too many greens? (12 msgs / 212 lines)
1) From: Mike McGinness
Hmm, I've been wondering if maybe my greens stash is getting too big. Then
did a little quick math and discovered I have just less than a 9 day supply.
If I roasted my usual 1/3# batches back to back non-stop at the rate of one
batch every twenty minutes I'd run out of greens in just under 9 days!
Doesn't seem like so much when I think of it that way:-)

OK, but did you factor in any time to drink some?  Can you rock your
Rosto, fiddle with the Variac, and pull shots at the same time, or 
should
you factor in some coffee making time?  Can't see how you'll pull this
off without it.

I figure I'll need to borrow a SM5k super-automatic and modify it for IV
drip. Or make that rapid infusion!

Let's see, that's a pound/hour, 24 pounds/day, why...why...that's over 200
pounds!
You've got way too much coffee, dude.  :-)

Your math is correct. Our trip to Hawaii kind of put my stash over the
top:-)

I am with Rick, running at a little over 100 lbs.  I have a couple of new
ones coming from Tom.  I saw a show on New Orleans so I have to give the
Chicory a try.  New territory to explore.  I brewed some very fine auction
winner Brazil this A.M.  I should drink it more often, it is so smooth!
Back to Kona Americanos and Cappuccinos in the morning.  Life is rough.  I
have not had a CR in a long time, so I am going to check the old stash and
roast up some for Tue.  On Tue. I will be roasting up some Isle of St.
Helena, Coffee Ground Estate Peaberry in preparation for turning a
half-century on Thursday!  One must prepare for the celebration!

I'd ask which ones but I DON'T WANT TO KNOW!:-)

Before I started home roasting we used to buy some Nawlins style French
Roast with chickory from Cafe' Maison. (after our visit to Nawlins and Cafe'
Dumonde..) Different cup. The smell of chickory brings back wonderful
memories...
 On Tue. I will be roasting up some Isle of St.

It's like the definition of old age -- 10 years older than I am. (I just
turned 51.)
My definition of too many greens is 100 lbs more than I have.  :-)

Regarding the big five-oh and Les and Mike:
Jeezus.  Listening to you guys talk I figured you were a bunch of old
geezers.  Now I realize I'm the oldest among you.  I hope *I* don't sound
like an old geezer...

P.S.  Roasted some Blue Sky Kona today.  I'll be sippin' it tomorrow.
Interestingly, it didn't hit second until 10 - 15 warmer than most of my
other greens.  I had to take it all the way to 455 to hit 2nd.  (I only did
that on what I call my "control" roast -- the rest of it I roasted to midway
between first and second -- 440) [RF]

I think from reading between the lines John "In the DEEP South" has us all
beat!
