Ok have a few weeks in of coffee use... I bought way too much my first time out. I used 21 oz of coffee over 27 days. bought 2.5 lbs my first day to the roasters... So a bit past prime on the first batch of coffee.

I placed an order from Sweet Maria's got 8lbs of green "espresso" coffees. Was only going to get 4 lbs but with shipping being the same i just went with the big sample pack. I like that they have a good amount of info on the blends including "spider" charts of flavors etc. Since I don't know what I like Hopefully I'll learn something in the process over the next six months with these beans.

I'll be using a ghetto rigged popcorn popper for the first few batches to see how I like the process before committing the $250 i need to build my 4" fluid bed roaster plan
