Re: “Surfing Coffee's "Third Wave"

I buy my coffee beans green from sweet maria's and roast them fresh every 3-5 days. A better analogy than steak is bread, fresh roasted bread tastes markedly different than week old bread, and burnt toast tastes different then cupcakes. However, people develop their taste for roasts from their experiences. There is no absolute. Once you try a Yirgacheffe roasted to full city you'll realize there are more tastes to a light roasted, well-pulled espresso than peet's or starbucks can offer. Friends in Portland have been fighting this battle for the last 10 years, Stumptown sort of broke Starbuck's back on this front. Hopefully Blue Bottle, Ritual and Four Barrel can do the same here.
