Making sure for a given bean/roast rest and taste rest and taste scenario
you go out at least 10 to 12 days. No Really. You may be surprised what
flavors emerge (sometimes explode) a week and half or so out. Not usually,
but sometimes. Especially if dealing with espresso.  

While there are indeed a plethora of flavors to be had directly starting
post roast, personally I find most coffees don't fully develop really coming
into there own until 4 or 5 days rest. And agree generally speaking the
darker the roast the less rest required.

Ultimately the quest for Koffee Nirvana is a solitary path. To know I must
first not know. And in knowing know I know not. Each Personal enlightenment
found exploring the many divergent foot steps of Those who have gone before.
