These truths to be self-evident,
Babbie's Rule* of Fifteens: -- Green (unroasted) coffee beans should be roasted within 15 months OF BEING HARVESTED, or they go stale. -- Roasted coffee beans should be ground within 15 days OF BEING ROASTED, or they go stale. -- Ground coffee should be used within 15 minutes OF BEING GROUND, or it goes stale.
But you're quite right -- I deleted those additions a long time ago, despite their presence in earlier posts, because I found to be rather obvious. Guess not, and I shall revert to their inclusion from henceforth.
