    Christmas coffee orders....

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    23 x 200gm coffee orders so far, I can only do 3 at a time :P

    Anyway I usually just put beans in these lined bags and write on them but a new friend who ordered 6 bags for gifts asked me to include my details for reordering, so I had to get my act together and this is what I came up with.

    Congratulations Redzone, both on your enterprise and presentation, job well done.
    Must admit Ive contemplated doing something similar to this as an interest, Im retired so have the time, enjoy roasting, could probably push the Corretto to 1 kg and have lots of passing tourist traffic so suspect a sandwich board out the front would bring em in.
    May just give it a try in the new year, need to do some market research to discover the most popular method used by the great unwashed to brew coffee, or perhaps someone has the answer. ;)

    I suspect that is a jar of instant and a teaspoon. ;D

    In my world most just do not understand that coffee is a fresh food and it must be prepared well to taste good. (sigh)

    Although somebody listened, so maybe there is hope. My Kris Kringle pressie at work was batch of very special single estate beans from Kenya, roasted 6 days ago and in a one-way bag!

    If its going to start as a hobby I dont think it matters.

    The biggest factor in their enjoyment of your coffee is that it will be fresh.

    A girl I used to work with loved my roasted coffee even though she only had a spice grinder at home that she used for her coffee making.
    My beans were soooo much better than the stupidmarket stuff she used to buy that even using a spice grinder the difference was blatantly apparent.

    The rest of the guys used everything from a EM6910 to a plunger but all liked the beans.

    As their tastes develop they may become fussier.
    One of the guys preferred a lighter roast; stopped just on SC.
    The rest were happy with anything up to 30 sec into SC; all this with a PNG Kimel.

    For the sake of simplicity I suspect I would only go with one SO variety. ;)

    I reckon that consistency may be better, and thus a blend that can be adjusted to the changing ingredients. UNLESS, you end up with regulars who appreciate a particular variety. If they (gasp!) learn to appreciate sequential differences then you have a chance at different varieties and a new special every batch.
