Default Green Beans ordered for 2017

Every Christmas-tide I order my coffee for the next year, usually because I receive a few monetary gifts from some members. So, here is the order for this coming year.

Ethiopian Natural Sidamo 4 FTO Oromia - 20#

Haitian High Altitude Typica Gwo Chwall - 5#

Kenya Peaberry Muhugu Estate - 20#

Colombian Supremo Popayan - 20#

Hoping that holds me for the whole year!

Peace of the Lord be with you.

Yes, for about 17 years now. Use a Fresh Roast 2000 coffee roaster to do so. Have already used up a Fresh Roast 5.

Sounds great, Todd, especially the two African beans.

Me, I gotta grit my teeth and make do with store-generic cans of mud.

What do you pay for a can of mud?

If you look at what I picked up, (including the Haitian which is treat-myself splurge and more than I'd spend normally) I am getting 65 pounds of coffee shipped, for less than $400. That's about $6 a pound, but about $5,50 a pound for 60 pounds worth, the Haitian is a big difference.

You can get into an introductory roaster for about $130. I've had mine for about 6 years now, after the first one finally gave up the ghost.

For the difference in fresh roasted coffee, it is amazing. And I am guessing, not truly much more expensive than the "mud" you are drinking.

Once a week I get coffee other than at home, it is the day of the Men's Morning Bible Study. I think it rude to sit there and not patronize the shop, so I get a cup there. Although, I have brought the owner some of my fresh roasted coffee, for they buy theirs elsewhere, and the owner was duly impressed.

Mud normally runs (or oozes) about 2 bucks a can, so around half the price of your beans. And though I am sure your brew is at least twice as good, I still could not justify it on my budget. But I am glad someone I know and like gets to enjoy it.

I like your choices, but that's a lot of green coffee beans. I only order about 10-12 pounds at a time, how do you store your green beans?

Just in the cupboard. Looked into it once and learned that as long as they do not get moldy, they are good for quite a while. I had 5# of Jamaican Blue Mountain that I used very sparingly for special occasions, it has been in my cupboard for 4 years.

Now, I may be wrong, but there have been no problems with the beans I have had around.

Peace of the Lord be with you.

Like Todd, I simply store mine in the bottom cupboard, where its dark and cool. Try to keep as much air out of the bag when I reseal it and store it after a roasting session.

I even store mine in burlap bags, letting the air in. It allows air flow which keeps the mold from growing.

I roast about a week's worth, keeping the roasted beans in an old Del Monte Grapefriut sections container.

Well, I haven't been sent a large order in "burlap" to date, but I do know that the company I order from does indeed store their numerous burlap bags in the warehouse, and can do so in the right conditions.

My beans simply arrive in thick sealed plastic sacks (5#). To date, I guess I've been fortunate not to have experienced mold on the green beans. Then again, I don't worry about it.

I have not seen coffee in the store for $2 a can. What are you buying?

Do you have grinder, or is buying roasted beans out of the question?

Coffee Bean Corral used to send their orders out in burlap bags. I kept them around, so even if I order from someplace that sends their beans in plastic, I have burlap bags for storage.

On occasion name brands like Maxwell House, Folgers, etc. are on sale. Otherwise my local grocery Stop&Shop has its "Guaranteed Value" house brand that sells for 2 bucks a can every day. It's not great coffee, but it does the job.

I do have a Krups grinder and splurge on beans rarely, using Mayorga, Starbucks, and Dunkin in the past. Of course I like these better, but cannot fit this into my budget often. As for green beans, I've had fresh roast a few time, but have never done so myself. Too much like work.

...but its fun work. Especially with all of the coffee bean chaff flying around during the roasting process, and getting in your hair and... wait a second... I don't have any hair... well anyways, its fun work
