  • What beans you got stashed away?

    What beans have you all got stashed away and what sort of quantity?

    Nosey? Yes I am, and I also wonder how obsessed I am with my little collection.

    Cheers,

    CB. 8-)

        8.5kg Peru Grace Estate
        6kg Indian Mysore Nuggets
        5kg Indian Tiger Mountain
        4kg Sulawesi Lemo Toraja
        3kg Sumatran Mandeling
        4.5kg Vietnam Robusta
        2.5kg Indian Robusta
        4.4kg Brazil Cerrado
        2.5kg Ethiopian Limu
        1kg Ugandan Bugisu (arrggghhh.. more please!!)

        Hows the obsessed feeling now CB?

        Edit - I just had a look at my coffee spreadsheet (yes, Im an IT nerd!) and found that I have purchased some 250kg of beans since August 2004.
        And about 5kg of tea and a couple of kilos of chocolate.
        What a hobby :-)

              Hey Tony, looks like you got through that Yemen in a hurry ;D

              Interesting to see the diversity of collections and how we seem to have preferences for particular regions.

                    Goodies, Im very impressed with the organised nature of your inventory - beats my chaotic bundle of post-it notes all over the place.

                    The ratings column is blank though ... :-?

                      which brings your total somewhere around 32kg so far...

                        Re: What beans you got stashed away?

                        I kept stressing to my wife that a good stash of beans is essential for versatility when roasting for blend choices etc.
                        Having built the stash up to around 20kg, 3 weeks ago I managed to tear a tendon away from my shoulder and being self employed no $$$ are coming in, soooooooooo at least Ive got 20kg of greenies to keep me going until the bucks are coming in again!!!
                        And yes, I have managed a new routine for producing decent espresso one-armed!!!!

                          I just discovered recently that my modest stash had reached the somewhat obese proportions of 111.5Kg , therefore my purchasing of late has been attenuated a little, while I attempt to whittle it down to a more humble collection of ~50Kg.

                          Basically the stash covers all corners of the globe where ever coffee is grown and made available though Andys kind auspices... Probably have about 15.0Kg of PNG, 25Kg of various African beans, about the same for various Central American and South American beans, about 12Kg of a couple of Indian varieties and a few Kgs from Indonesia.

                          Our friends and relos are doing very well out of my need to reduce the stockpile, more roasting to come.... :

                          Mal.

                            I got a hold of the coffee Roasting Database and find it a really good tool for inventory and for roasting profiles. I still am playing around with it and havent utilised all the functions as yet (such as the rating section. I will evently get to using it I suppose.
