You guys are crazy. or full of beans!

so name a good stand-out SO that cuts through milk.

I might be a little late in replying to this post, but since I started roasting, I've been in a search for a SO that just would taste good with a latte and by itself in a short black. My partner loves her latte and I'm all for short blacks and I found:
1) Peru Ceja De Selva Estate [10 days rest time - pulled (quite close to but) before Second Crack]
2) Costa Rica Tarazzu [5-6 days rest time - similar roast level to the above]

both are quite nice by itself and with latte's.

If you do every try it, I'd be keen to know if it works for you.

Well I have been working hard at dropping numbers and looking back from Jan's audit I have reduced around 20kg in that time consider I brought 10kg from Coffeehorse (Redonda & Santa Clara). So the stash is weight in at just over 30kg and still room to move over the coming weeks to knock off a bag ends!

Geez Richard, sparse as it looks, you can take heart in that apart from the problematical Tanzanian, it IS a quality stash.
Maybe some Crema members can send you some "bag ends" to help you through these tough times!  ;)
Gotta love that Monsoon tho!  :coffee2:

Impressive lists out there! As an inverterate collector I see problems ahead!
So some questions for the veterans (I don't have a book yet see!):
1. What would you consider the five "must have" beans, based on ease of roasting, and quality of cup, and blending possibilities, for a beginner to aquire?
2. Best way to store the beans.
3. How long can you store the beans, relating to quantities?

Hi Janlab,

Always in my cupboard:  Peru Ceja De Selva Estate: it is easy to roast, tastes good at a variety of roast profiles and works well for most styles of coffee, from espresso to plunger.
And storage; anywhere dry, dark, cool and airy. Our stocks are in calico bags in an often opened pantry cupboard.

Hi JanLab

1. Brazil Dattera Estate, Columbian Bachue, PNG Kimmel,  Ethiopian Yirg or Sidiamo and Sumatran Kuda Mas.  All great as distinctive single origins and great blenders also.  A great sponsor with free shipping on orders over $50:

http://www.beangreen.com.au/product-list.php?asc_action=Paginator_SetRowsPerPage&pgname=Catalog_ProdsList_8&rows=64

2.  In a dry dark place in a sealed container (contentious issue)

3.  Give or take three years.

4.  It's a slippery slope as you can tell by som of he lists.  I tend to keep smaller amounts and use great services like BeanGreen more frequently.  Especially as the storage, variety and shipping is free.

Welcome Janlab!  I'm vey glad to see you here ;)

Enjoy this great and relaxed forum.

Hello and welcome J.

As you may guess, opinions vary, so here's my suggestion.

Different people appreciate different flavours in their coffee, so you  should get a variety of beans and play around to choose what suits you. Also, over time our tastes change, or we may just be in the mood for a different style of coffee.
Always good to keep a Brazilian in the stash, I usually have a PNG, a Sumatran and at  least one Indian (elk hill or tiger mountain are good. I tend to favour central american beans, but have thoroughly enjoyed a Kenyan peaberry and a Rwandan of  late.
Bean green are worth a look. Grab a kilo  of several varieties so you can try a wide selection and then order more of beans you really like. Plenty other places do sell by the kilo,  but the wide selection and free shipping work for me. Also, some roasters will sell a milli or two greens if you ask nicely.

Storage? Common sense I reckon, no wide variation of temperature. If humidity is an issue, use sealed containers.

I think three years is the maximum. One year is fine, two OK. They do change slightly as they age, but not to the extent of roasted beans

Thanks all, Stuff as good as ordered. Meanwhile I've also checked the local roastery again. Very friendly, and led me into the mystique of grinding...Two minutes leftfor this, but then three right for that!
I'm slightly worried. My old kitchen shop grinder died in the move. And there were already a number of "from Jan, with best wishes, to Jan" presents this year. So where does one start? Any suggestions?

Best Cafes has a grinder mash-up for your reading pleasure and then why not start a thread.  It's been a while since we've got to bash the K3 or the 'smart' grinder  >:D :P

It's been over a year since my last big audit so here it is:

Brasil Fazenda Serra e Leite                    1500
Ethiopia Guna Limmu                                3000
Ethiopia Harrar Longberry 2010               1500
Ethiopia Sidomo Gudji                               1750
Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Grade 2 Washed    2000
Haiti Grand Cru                                         2250
Java Ijen Sundried                                      500
Malawi Nyika Peaberry                            1000
Nepal Plantec Estate                                2500
Peru Grace Estate                                    2000
Uganda Masaba AA                                  1750
Yemen Al-Hajj Boa'an                            2250
Yemen Bani Ismail                                     4000
Yemen Sanaani Mocha                            2750

Total  28.75kg, much more reasonble I'm sure! :rofl:

Over the last year I've only bought about 8kg from Bean Green, some Sumatra Mandheling Kuda Mas, Yirgacheffe, Peru Grace Estate and the Brasilian Fazenda. I may consider another buy when I get it down to 10kg now. I'm still enjoying the Yemen Bani Ismail, but the way I'm roasting it at the moment means I'm chasing the grind for most of the batch, but when I nail it - *bliss*

I had some of the Haiti about 3 years ago and haven't noticed any available since at BG nor MoG.
At $21.50/kg is not a cheap option but I thoroughly enjoyed it in both milk and black.
I can't recall the exact palate feel as it was so long ago, but I do remember not wanting to "share" too often with friends.  ;D
Got mine from CS and it was described (edited) as:
"Haiti is not often thought of as a coffee origin, but it is! Haiti grows a very small amount of coffee and the best of the crops typically end up in the USA and Japan and it

I still have about 1kg of this from CS.
I haven't roasted it for a while but I can vaguely recall something like Jamaica Blue Mt (ie balanced)
 if you google Haiti Grand Cru you will see some links to CS posts including one from Borat, describing it in glowing terms.

Thought it about time I did another "audit" and here's the result:

Australian Mountain Top Ray's Selection #789 (isn't that why 6 is afraid of 7?) :D : 990g

India Elephant Hills AA Grade:790g

Maui Mokka Ka'Anapali Estate: 800g

India Malayanagiri Geisha: 1120g

Robusta Indian Monsoon: 1140g

Yemen Mocha Ismaili: 2000g

Tanznia KVCG Peaberry: 2000g

Tanzania Southern Highlands Grade AA: 550g (1st roast resting and untried)

Indonesian Mandheling FTO - Askogo Co-Op: 600g (1st roast resting and untried)

Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Gr2 washed; 550g

Brazil Fazenda Regreio Microlot: 500g

PNG Kimel Peaberry: 1000g (Yet to roast)

Burundi Ngozi Mugirampeke Washed: 1000g (Yet to roast)

MOG's Nehemiah green blend: 1000g (Yet to roast)

All up somewhere around 12Kg it seems.
Any suggestions for either a roasting blend or a post roast blend from these?
I haven't delved much into the blending field, choosing to taste as SO mostly.
