Ha! This list is like a coffee support group. If I told anybody I know that
I vac+freeze green coffee to roast 2 years later I think they would have me
admitted. I don't tell people 1/2 of the things I do to get a great cup
because the 1/2 I do tell makes them think I'm crazy.
Well, I guess the next step is a cryonic freeze to see if we can keep a
pound preserved for 5 years or longer. Hey, they keep wine that long!

I have been Vacuum packing my greens for years now. It seems to at
least double their life expectency. Members of the list ( I know MiKe)
was one did a study of the effect of vacuum packing and freezing on
greens. I believe they also found it doubled life expectancy
