I'm confused. Beans at 30% and then taken to 65%? Coffee beans are
universally intentionally dried to around 12% moisture content + or - a
couple percent. IIRC outside that range they don't qualify as Specialty
Coffee. And greens above 15% moisture content are in danger of molding and
other nasty happenings in short order.

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.
