Paul, I believe that is just the AM list.  There certainly must be a PM list.

I roast green coffee  https://www.sweetmar...een-coffee.html in a hottop roaster https://www.hottopamericas.com/. Then each morning we share a 10 cup chemex https://www.chemexco...ffeemaker.html. Gets us going!

 

Before heading out on a trip I fill 4 beer growlers with fresh roasted coffee beans (3 roasts per growler), which will last us 4 to 5 weeks. Then I hand grind the beans each morning and use an 8 cup chemex to brew it in. Quite the ritual, but it is great to eat our museli or granola and sip coffee while looking at the world from some scenic viewpoint.

Tony, if you like a dark/robust coffee, try Celebes/Sulawesi kalossi.  If David Kobos is still in business, he would be a good source.

 

What hand grinder are you using?

I’m with you on the need for a good coffee. I’m impressed that you roast your own! Do you do that for freshness or because of the way you like your beans roasted?

Steve,

 

We are very much dark roast fans. Usually I roast until 2nd crack begins. Which seems to do the trick.

 

I will check David Kobos out.

 

I use this handgrinder:

Hi Vic,

 

I roast for five reasons:

 

- Freshness. A new roast seems to reach peak flavor in about three days and then hold well if in airtight containers (hence the beer growlers) for over a month.

- The exact roast we like, which is dark.

- Cost. Green beans are about half the price of buying someone else's roast. In a couple of years I have largely paid off my roaster through savings on coffee.

- Variety. It is fun to try out different beans from different places. There is a lot more difference among beans than I had ever thought.

- Fresh quality. We can get fresh crop beans through Sweet Maria's -- it seems to make a big difference.

 

Tony
