I've been using an aluminum tray I formed up at work for cooling, I've also
been dumping the greens in it to look them over on the way to the roaster,
and while they're cooling. Any oddballs really stand out, before or after
the roast. I haven't found any of Tom's Sumatran bees, but plenty of black,
neon green, even the occasional painted bean like the red one this week!
Sticks, string.... I've been building a collection of rocks and concrete
chips from around the world, mostly just the usual Yemen or Ethiopian or
Sumatran rocks, but two very rare examples, one from CRLM, one from Panama.
It only takes a minute, and I've never ground a rock or brewed a stinker.
OTOH, one time I dumped a roast, and looked too close too soon, and one bean
sounded second crack and shot a divot in my eye. ;-( Oh well, that'll teach
me I guess!
