Reading this incredibly long thread has made me want to try. I have a crappy freezer, so freezing is not an option, but if there are any in West Los Angeles who want to sync up our bean ordering and split a 5lbs bag let me know. ;)

I just ordered a lb, I'd be happy to split it with you if you like.

I've been talking shop with Jeff (roasting), super nice guy. It's time I actually tried his coffee.

Just got a pound and will take a couple of weeks to go through it. Maybe next time, though, PM me. We could split a 5 lbs shipment and save on shipping, if you don't mind going through 2.5 lbs, which would take me about a month...

Has anyone tried vac bags for freezer?  I would think it would lock out more freezer taste.

Searching the forums yields some interesting threads:

I use the Foodsaver system, and find it suitable. I recommend the precut bags over the rolls.

It depends on your flavour preferences. Could be Red Bird, Blue Jaguar...

I would just like to add another positive comment on the customer service from Jeff. I placed an order in July for 5 lbs of Red Bird and unfortunately I received 5 lbs of the Blue Jaguar (not bad, but I prefer Red Bird). After double checking Blue Jaguar was really what I received, Jeff without hesitation sent me 5 lbs of the Red Bird. He was quick to respond to all my emails and living in Canada, Jeff has always managed to get me the coffee within 8 days post roast.  I will definitely continue ordering from Jeff as his customer service is outstanding and the coffee he roasts is always excellent.

I ordered a lb of Redbird and Blue Jag. Honestly, they aren't my type. I'm sure others like them, but it's just not my style.

Did 5lb of blue jaguar but I think it was too much because I didn't care for it as much.

Back to 5lbs of redbird and it's hitting the spot.  Too bad no dark chocolate freebies :(
