Topic: How many different beans when roasting (14 msgs / 255 lines)
1) From: Paul Covert
Hello HomeRoasters,
Just curious how many people roast several batches of different types
of beans when they roast?
Do you only roast what your going to consume in a couple of days or
what your going to consume in a week or so?
Thanks...

Hi Paul,
I normally try to let the beans rest after roasting for 1 -2  days before 
grinding and drinking. I almost never use beans older than 5 - 6 days after 
roasting. Anything left longer than 6 days becomes compost.

I usually roast about five to six days worth in a 
session. Mostly, it's a batch of my regular blend, 
a batch of decaf, and a batch of new beans or 
blends I'm trying out. 
When I go away, I try to roast a batch for the 
freezer, so I can immediately slake my real coffee 
cravings when I get back.

Good question: Because of the volume of my Pumper, I find myself roasting
2-3x/week; I'd like to get away from that, but because I'm trying diffent
coffees/roasts, I'm not ready to roast 1/2 pound of any coffee/roast combo.
As a result I currently have on the counter containers of: a very finely
ground decaf roasted dark for my MokaPot, 1 C. French Roasted decaf beans
for use at home during the weekend, 1C each of two coffees at Full City
which I will grind tomorrow and attempt to tell the diff. between the two,
and some roasted Colombian for b'fasts. I know, that didn't answer your
question.
I'm looking a a whirley-pop for roasting something greater than 3/4 C. at a
time. - Mike

About a week at a time, and I roast two or three coffees that I think might
complement each other in a blend, if I so choose.  Sometimes there is no
rhyme or reason to what I roast.

Virtually always roast multiple 1/3# batches of different greens. Typically
always a Kona or two, then an Indonesian, a Central (Pan' or CR or Guat),
and an African (still barely begun truly exploring Africans after two year
home roasting). Also keep either ISH, JBM or PRYC roasted. Plus my Vienna
melange' Kona roast for milk based yummies... Also Monkey for shots or
Monsooned Malabar to mix with a Central for shots. Keep vac'd in mason jars
right from roaster. If it looks like won't be consumed by day 6 into the
freezer, try to catch that on day 4 but don't always. This is for
consumption at home and the vac packs I make up for Debi to take to work for
her drip 4-cupper.

Usually multiple roasts per session.  Current espresso blend consists of 
Brazil Minas Organic Sun-dried,Uganda Budadiri AA-S & Indian Pearl MTN 
Estate peaberry.  So, three roasts couple times weekly (4oz Z&D each). A 
decaf batch of either Ethiopian Ghimibi DP MC or Sulawesi Toraja and choice 
of the "week"(this week Guatemala Huehuetango Huix.....Total of ~8 roasts of 
4-7oz(green wt)per week divided by 2-3 roasting sessions.  Total roasted 
this calender year ~106#. Factoring in gifts, guests & a couple of OOPs with 
the ALPs my personal consumption is ~24oz/week or 36 shots/week or 
$90.00/week @ out local "espresso" shops.

Cool math. Pays for a Rocky in about 2&1/2 weeks or a Mazzer Mini in month,
then a Silvia in 4&1/2 weeks etc...:-)

Generally, I try to roast enough to last several days.  Generally, it is all
gone before I know it!  I used to throw the old(er) stuff in the freezer,
but now I find that I use it so fast, nothing is left.  So I sometimes roast
a few extra batches, put them in valve bags, and keep them in the freezer
for when I am desperate.
I'll be going up to Vt in a couple of days, so I'm planning on roasting up a
whole bunch of beans tomorrow and the next day.  Since I'll be bagging them
for later use, I'll roast a nice selection.
