I'm curious if anyone has found an old bag stashed in the corner somewhere behind stuff, having forgotten you had it, and found a different and pleasing cup from it. "Old" as in three or more years. (Not looking for comments on commercially-sold aged Sumatra.)

3 year old green, correct?  And what was the origin?

Yes, inadvertently aged green. As far as origin, any--I'm curious if there have been any happy surprises, interesting flavor notes from their lost and found coffee . . . whether brewed or espresso.

. . .

What made me think of it was my Liquid Amber I roasted tonight. I bought a lot of it a year ago, and the stuff's as good as ever. Granted, a year isn't very old, or "aged", in terms of green, but I think that the flavor has maintained really well. If anything, its edges have smoothed out a bit, and the flavor seems more integrated. Ohhhh . . . I reeeaally like Liquid Amber. I've bought many of the "top" espressos, and I just keep coming back to home-roasted LA!

. . . on the commercially-sold aged Sumatra note, I bought a cup of five-year at Peet's, the overwhelming note was burlap.
