Today's New York Times has a story on Kona Coffee.  Go to:
 http://www.nytimes.com/pages/living/index.htmlAnd click on the coffee story, second one down.  It requires a subscription
but there is no charge.

Hope everyone gets a chance to read this outstanding article.  It highlights
a number of issues which are profoundly influencing our roasting hobby.  I
particularly liked this observation-20 million pounds of Kona are sold every
year while only 2 million are produced.  The role of the major producers in
prohibiting restrictions as to what can be called Kona is interesting.

There was a grea article on traveling to Panama Boquete region last Sunday
in the Travel section. I am going to psot it on our web page later tonite.
The woman visits Casa Ruiz mill, that mills many of the Boquete coffees we
receive including Hartmann, and she gets a tour from Boutet ...we had his
estates coffee 3 years ago...

There's an interesting article in today's New York Times dining section
bemoaning the lack of good expresso in New York. It should really appeal to CSA
members on the list:) 
Go to www.nytimes.com and scroll down to Dining and Wine section in the left
hand column. The site requires registration, but there is no charge.

I read that article this morning while sipping my Huehue.
There have been a few posts on this list concerning finding a good
espresso in NYC.  I'll be in the city for the next few days at a
conference and will try a couple of the recommended places in this
What interested me was the discussion of calcium content in the water
making a difference.  Maybe that's why the coffee that I make in my home
in Vermont always seems to taste better than the coffee I make at my
home on Long Island.  
Or maybe it's just that I'm in Vermont.... ;-)
