My question is concerning the "resting" period after roasting, usually
4-72 hours. During this period is the coffee left out in the
open(submitted to room conditions), or is it supposed to be sealed in a
vacuum tight container.

What a great system I've developed! When the bean hopper on my Solis
grinder (waiting for the Rocky to be delivered :-) is about 1/4 full,
it's time to roast. A batch in my I-Roast is about 3/4 hopper full.
I simply dump the new beans on top of the old - that brings it up to
the top. The 1/4 hopper of 'old' beans lasts about a day - just long
enough for the new beans to degas. 2-3 days later, I'm down to 1/4
hopper and it's time to roast another batch. It's not in there long
enough to worry about it getting stale. If I'm anticipating a crowd,
I'll roast a bit more and store it for up to a week in a valve bag.

I roast mine in 4.5 ounce batches. That is enough to last me for about 4
days. I put it in a glass jag with a loose lid right after the cooling
cycle. I like to let it rest for 24 hours before using. I consider roasted
coffee garbage after 8 days.

I pre-blend and pre-weigh out roast portions. Each portion goes into a
canning jar. I pour from the jar into the roaster and when done the
roast goes back into the same jar. I leave the ring-lid just a bit
loose for the first day which allows the CO2 to escape but provides a
decent seal against the air- decent enough because it will only be
around for about 10 days. After the first day I screw the lid down
tight after each use.

I just use ziplock bags. The rotgut kind you can find cheap at your
local "it fell of the truck" store work just fine (near me that store
is called "Ocean State Job Lot"). I use up each batch within a week
and haven't had a problem.

I put mine in glass jars with those wired-down lids and rubber
gaskets. Gives a satifying puff when I open it after a day or two or
three.

Heh. This morning my wife nearly got hit in the face when the
two-piece lid flew off the jar of coffee she was opening. Woke her up
real quick!

Um, I the coffee release co2 during this time. So you might not want
them to be in a sealed container. Though you don't want oxygen to get
at them either.
The ideal storage would be sealed in a coffee bag with a one way valve
on it.
I don't roast so I'm not sure what everyone does.

I keep mine open at room temp for 24 hours, then a sealed glass jar after
that.
