A few years back I picked up a popper at a thrift store before I went to the Tucson gem show for 2 weeks, I roasted on the porch at the house I was staying at and after 17 days I still had fresh coffee. Not a regular habit but I knew what my options would be, I did find a good cafe, I can't remember what it was called but they had a freezer with their retail coffee in it and a tiny roasting room in the back.
A condo we stayed at in Kona had a popper that had clearly been used to incinerate some coffee.
Pulling SO shots of Molpaco Yirg and Oromia Yirg both roasted To a nice C+ nice floral and fruit aromatics in both but too thin for straight shots, made wonderful americanos. Tried blending each with Brazil Cerrado roasted to light vienna 75/25 much better shots but still lacking something, maybe rest? Best shots in a week nonetheless.
