[Homeroast] Costa Rica RIP 2009

Dry processed coffees typically roast with a more uneven appearance than 
washed coffees.  The little bits and pieces of remaining parchment and the 
amount of sugar on the outside of the bean, which gets very dark can account 
for this.

Unripe beans will also roast with a lighter color than those that are ripe. 
If the bean color is way different than the other beans, it's probably an 
unripe that was not milled out at the source.
