I know last time I said it was the final update, but I thought this might be nice to have for posterity.

I've got about 3-4 weeks worth of beans left from the batch I ordered in September 2021. Given that it's now June 2022 and I'm still pleased with the results in the cup after roasting these beans one cup at a time once every 8 weeks (well ok 2 cups, his and hers blend). This is around 9-10 months worth of storage on a boat. Do I think it could be stretched to a year, absolutely. I order in 5kg batches though so I'm not sure I'd store 20kg of beans at a time, but it's not out of the question now.

I really hope that this will be useful to someone else in the future, it was such a pain in the rear to find information about it before I started this journey. Life is too short to drink bad coffee.
