[Homeroast] How long do you rest your roast?

I'm strange, I guess (no surprise), but I like almost everything at about 3
days.  I like darker flavor profiles and don't tend to care for the brighter
flavors which seem (to me, at least) to show up at about day 5-8ish.  If I
roast something that's really bright, I'll often drink it days 1-3 (or so)
and then let it sit until days 10 or more so the brightness can diminish

I also tend to give lighter roasts longer rests... the darker the roast the
more you taste the roast (and the less you taste the bean), so they tend to
need less resting time.

well... that's worth about a grain of sand... :-)

Grace and Peace,
