that a little later today, 3 x 2 lb bags), but I've been seeing a curious
thing... almost without exception, instead of 450 grams or so, most of the
time I seem to end up about 20g short. <<
Well, now I have, and my 2 lb. order of HueHeuTenango was more like two and
one-third!  Was this a holiday bonus? ;)
I'm thinking this little toy scale isn't close to accurate ... oh well, it's
more or less consistent, and better than roasting by volume.
Still interested if anyone keeps track of their orders "by the gram", and
their results...

 I use an accurate measurement on each batch of 90 gm for my HR, and there is always more in the bag than I order from Maria's. Richard in Sarasota
