Yes, a reference set. You make good points. Also, different origins are 
going to look totally different at similar roast levels, for example a DP 
Ethiopian vs WP Kenyan. Still I think it would be useful if only to 
underscore reference points.

I thought it was useful when I started roasting for the Lady Silvia. I 
ordered roasted and green samples of SM espresso blends, to see what they 
should finish like. Then adjusted the roasting to match.
