Asking a woman her age?
So two questions on a beans age........

I have read in a few places the need to rest beans after roasting. Resting seems to change depending on the degree of roast or bean type, is that correct?
So how does one go about choosing the length of time to rest?

Also the words rest, age and store are being used interchangeably in some posts on-line. But that does not seem correct to me. What is the difference between them and why age or store fresh roasted beans at all?

Thanks everyone,

I stand by word for word on my post here

In addition
You only need to please yourself as to the coffee flavour you prefer
Taste your roasts often to determine your sweet spot level
If possible taste other roasters beans to compare

Roasting in general is not rocket science, it is a little tweaking here and a little tweaking there until you get the desired effect
