The problem is that I roast to order, and I can't roast less than a lb per batch (don't really want to, either ). I can't guarantee that someone will order the same coffee as a sample ordered, to piggy back with, so it's just not possible.

I did it for xmas, and it worked out fine because enough people ordered it, I only needed 2 sample packs to do a batch.

LOL! It is a car forum, huh?

Honestly, I just recommend buying 2lbs each time. US raised their rates, it's now $10.20 or something to the East Coast, but a flat rate box is $10.95 to anywhere US. I can fit 2-4lbs in a flat rate box. You can always split it with family or a co-worker.

I've been working on hitting that 25sec mark consistently... pretty sure I got the grind setting just right. Last night i was practicing pushing 30lbs down on our bathroom scale to simulate tamping and my wife was like

Just plonk your bathroom scale on your kitchen counter and put your porta filter on top and tamp away at exactly 30lbs. Then your wife will really

Keep in mind it's just a guideline. Some coffees may taste best at a 21 sec pull, or with a finer grind/lighter tamp, coarser grind/heavier tamp, etc.

Coffee related... I made a tiramisu on saturday for an easter lunch with some friends. The only manufactured ingredient I used was store bought ladyfingers. The coffee related part is the homemade kaluha I used. It was made with home roasted coffee. Also, the espresso in the recipe was roasted 3 days before, also by me. We have a few foodies as friends and it was rated as the best tiramisu that they have ever had.

I have also been making my own espresso powder for other cooking.

You can take the espresso grounds from your knock box and then grind them into talcum powder consistency and use it in recipes that call for either instant coffee or (more recently) espresso powder.

Awesome, sounds great!

But dude, don't use spent grounds. Ugh. Why not powderize fresh coffee?

Yeah, they are just beans that are ground finer. There are some beans roasted with the intention of being explicitly ground for espresso, but you can grind any beans to the right consistency for it (and you can grind up "espresso" beans coarser and brew drip coffee with them).

In other words, espresso is a brewing method, not a bean.

Was the way MANY foodies were recommending to make espresso powder. Less bitter than using powderized fresh.

Well, going to have to try that. Going to do a coffee crusted pork loin this coming weekend. Will have to roast an extra batch this week. My roaster only does ~6 coffee scoops worth of green.
