So this is going around the Internets: the $54, 60-shot Starbucks drink. http://consumerist.com/2014/05/27/new-starbucks-free-drink-record-set-with-54-sexagintuple-vanilla-bean-mocha-frappuccino/
I was at my local roaster this morning, and watched the thermometer on the exhaust of the Probat drop 150 degrees (500 to 350F) when he dumped in 22 lbs of green coffee. #coolstorybro
I think if you have a good roaster available locally, so you can get freshly roasted coffee, and if the difference in cost is not important to you, then you don't need to roast.

The bigger roasting machines can do a much more varied roast profile than home machines because of how fast they can dump heat away from the beans. A good dark roast is very hard to do at home.

My inverted method: 1. Measure out 15ish grams of coffee, medium grind (middle of my grinder's settings), and pour it into the inverted chamber. 2. Add 225g of water straight from the boil. Basically as hot as I can keep the water and pour it into the chamber. 3. Stir vigorously, and let steep for 60 seconds. 4. Stir a bit more, put cap on, flip, and press out. Steps 3 and 4 overlap a bit because I put the cap on after about 30 seconds of steeping -- whenever I get the...
