Those are green not yet roasted beans. Green they will keep a long time in their packaging and stored properly. Similar to other dried beans.

My roaster does a half pound at a time in about 15 min. I roast about a pound a week. Have 10 lbs currently in rotation.. you can dial in the roast just like you want and play with the variety of beans available. Some I like light roasted and some dark.

You can roast coffee in a pan over a fire, air popcorn maker, one of several home roasters, etc.

Love that thing. It's propped up against a pine tree, half way up a mountain in WV. Wish I was there.

We bought this for camping from REI:
https://www.rei.com/product/884331/g...press-30-fl-oz



It's not as efficient as a drip coffee maker, meaning it uses more coffee grounds. We use the regular ground coffee. It makes a great cup of coffee and only requires hot water, no electricity.

I have the coffee press screen for my Jetboil.

A 12 cup pot, a 4 cup pot. An electric grinder. A manual grinder and a 34oz French press. That and about 18lbs of whole bean coffee. Oh and some non dairy powdered creamer if I can’t get half and half. But I can transition to black. Just wanted something I could ween my way towards black coffee.

That's what we use. Super easy, can do it anywhere, and makes great coffee.

I buy BRC AK roast, love that chit, worth every penny. They ship it to my office in great quantities every month. I keep a rotation from freezer storage. During the cold months it’s French press. Not because of hipster nonsense, but because I like my coffee to pour like motor oil and its very easy to keep clean. During the summer I make cold brew. 1 lb. coarsely ground split evenly across 3 half gallon mason jars. Add water and let sit in a cabinet for 2 days. Filter through a cotton bag and the yield is about a gallon of some high test goodness.

I need to add some instant to my pantry though.

I have been coveting my sodas but I probably should put back a can of coffee or some of those awesome caffeine drink packets if they have them next time I venture out to the fully stocked grocery store (seriously everything but TP).

Which one do you have? Set it and forget it? I see yergochef (spelling murdered) green beans for a nice price in bulk...

I looked into roasting and oh boy, what a rabbit hole. I also went to an Ethiopian cafe to ask about the ceremony and learn more. All fascinating but I had to stop.

WTF has time dealing with French presses, pour-over carafes and other silliness? Don’t have time to be a coffee snob either with these boutique roast and blends either. Maxwell House is still the best. May buy Cafe Du Monde when I can get it for $3.99 at H Mart
It might be a fad now, but pour overs are generally the traditional way to make coffee in South America—super easy, doesn’t require a lot of gear. The Japanese adopted it several decades ago, probably because they were a poor country at the time, and refined it. It’s probably one of the faster methods as well—takes me about 3 minutes, but it does require attention for that time.
