I've roasted my own coffee for the past few months in a stovetop popcorn popper. I'm using green "espresso monkey" beans, but it takes 4 days post roast for the beans to perform well in the espresso machine and at least 8 days post roast for the beans to taste delicious. Is this pretty typical? Any tips to use my beans when they're fresher than 8 days? Lighter roast vs darker roast? I typically let the beans degas uncovered for the first 12-24 hours at full city. Thanks!

My experience with Monkey Blend is that it does take at least 4-5 days rest to come into its' own. You can adjust your roasting schedule and/or amount roasted to account for this delay or you can try another of Tom's blends. While I don't have any experience with the "New Classic" his roasting notes indicate a lighter roast and I would expect a shorter rest period.

Thanks for the reply! So part of the reason it takes so long is because it is a darker roast? A few days ago I roasted the last of my 5lbs and ordered a Brazil an an Ethiopia. I plan to use them as SO espresso and then try them as a blend. Do you have any advice for roasting these origins that would help me out?

A roast in the first 24hrs is releasing a bunch of Co2, this can play havoc with flavor of and bloom for drip for 3 days and for espresso fo 5 days,the degassing slows enough in 3 days so the bloom is workable in an open brewing system but in a closed system for espresso it is hard to get an acceptable shot in under 4-5days.

Each variety of bean can vary to what is the best day to drink them in any style of brewing. I have had Yemen beans that where unacceptable for espresso before 14days and any robusto I ever roast sits for 30 days usually before I will blend it. That the problem with guides, they only deal with the average and not the stuff that is outside the box.

Those are extremes examples most beans follow the rule of 15, 15 minutes after grind, 15 days after roast and 15months for greens. Pretty typical beans for espresso use to become the most delicious from 5-9 days.

I can tell a difference in my espresso about 10-12 days after roasting, after that I'm starting to adjust my grind and tamp, I then bring in the new stuff and toss out the old. I roast about 1/2 pound a week
