Eth Nat Yirg Idido roasted yesterday. I dropped some off at a friends coffee shop. In a few days he will brew it and tell me what he thinks. We believe my roasts are better than what we buy.

My one problem with doing it is that if I may have to leave town on a job and not be able to carry it thru.

otherwise who wants in, gonna need an even number unless someone wants do the honors of a double, and I don't know squat about scoring coffee.

I do belive last year we had two 1 pound samples one was a direct swap and the other was guess the bean am I right.

with mailing to be on or before 10 December.

So Who wants to have some fun

We got all these new fancy roasters that have been built in the last year, lets have swap and see what they can do, or if some are just blowing coffee smoke in our eyes.

I know mines up to the challenge, won't be like it was last year when it went belly up and I had to break out the old Stiz Crazy to finish my entry.

So who else is going to jump in here.
we get enough people in on this I will draw names on the nineteenth of November, then everyone will have to have their beans roasted an in the mail by the 5th that way hopefully they will all get to who they are going to before Christmas. IF thats agreeable with everyone.

And if anyone needs or wants some of the mylar bags that can be sealed up with just a cloths iron for shipping I can let me know with an address and I will dig into my stash and mail two or three out to who wants em. I used em last year they worked great.

And unless it will cause problems I think that half a pound instead of a pound will be plenty for a contest, make it easier to ship in a smaller box. I have some of the small Flat Rate boxes and will see what I can put in one and post back.

the only other thing is that one roast should be the one you think you do the best, the second should be mystery bean and let them guess at what and where it came from.

Anyone got questions, this is a first for me. it was fun last year, anyway for me it was even though my roaster konked out in the middle of one of the roast.

And I know that with the roasters that I have seem come out in the last year there should be some really good beans floating around.
Who knows maybe Dan will join in with his Flame Roasted Coffee. Now theres and idea that I may dig into for the hunk of 24 inch pipe I have laying in my back yard.

Ok people the games afoot as Sherlock Holmes used to say.

How about just one coffee and you can determine with your matchup mate if you want to play 'guess the origin'? I wasn't thinking about a contest... Either way it's OK, but more should participate if it's just a friendly exchange.

You've nailed it, David! Thanks for stepping up.

I've done it in the past and it's lots of fun to organize. This year I am SWAMPED with surgery coming up fairly soon, so my time is limited. Not even sure if I have time to play this year... Ugh

Have fun!

We should toss a picture of the roasting apparatus in with the beans so the other person can see what they were roasted in - kinda like a homeroasters holiday card :)

and a maybe for John.


As far as pictures of the roasters I'll say go ahead of you want to throw in a picture, probably be a little better if we could maybe just post a link to some really good pictures so that everyone could see them, but I'll leave that up to the people doing the roasting.

So we are sending roasted coffee, or unroasted coffee? Or both? I'm confused but it sounds fun!
 
dja
the object of the swap is for you to roast the coffee, then send it to whoever your paired with so they can see how good your roasting skills are, to see if you have become master of your machine.


you in?

Hmm...it would be interesting if there was 1/2 pound of your finest roast, and then 1/2 a pound of the exact same coffee green. Because how many times have you drank someone else's coffee and thought, "i'd probably like it better if it were roasted darker/lighter.. So then I could drink your coffee, and then try it myself and see how mine compared. But.....I won't rock the boat. It sounds fun no matter what.

Andrew:

You can send your partner WHATEVER YOU WANT. You are not limited to one pound of any particular origin. The idea is to send a pound total so all get equal in terms of amount, how you divide that up is up to you.Grin
