Re: Monkey Blend stomach reactions?

How long did the coffee rest for? Sometimes the oils from dark roasted coffee that has been out for too long can get rancid and cause stomach issues.

Count me as another person who does this. Bottomline, good coffee is good coffee. If you blend it, it is still good coffee.

Re: Roasting Different Types of Green Beans Together

I too do this from time to time. Most of my "house blends" are pretty good. Occasionally they are very good. Always a surprise, and always a one-off.
