Ben, Are you bored this morning or what?  You need someone to play with! We're in the wrong time zone. All those west coast folks are probably just getting up. Actually it drives me nuts. Not many are active on the list in the (our) morning, then at 11 or 12 at night here, all the west coasters are getting on line.  Sue

Dennis,
Have you tried the Moka Kadir.  I love it as espresso and brewed, and it 
is pretty full flavored.  I also find the Guatemalan Antiqua a very full 
bodied coffee.  (Although, I never get mine quite as good as the pound I 
got roasted from Tom.)

I got up at 6:00 this morning.  I was to lazy to fire up the espresso machine.  I vac pot brewed (Bodum Santos) a pot of Panama LaBerlina.  I went out on the deck (about 60 degrees) and enjoyed a fine cup of coffee and watched the sun rise relected on the big hill between me and the Pacific Ocean (about 60 miles away), with my Pug BJ in my lap.  What a great way to start the day!

how wonderful to have all those cool temperatures!  Our low in
Brownsville was 82 degrees. But then we don't get those bone chilling
70 degree temperaturs but a couple of weeks a year.   Hot chocolate
replaces  coffee during those extreme cold temperaturs.

I had a West goats experience.  In Marin County, north of San Francisco, I
came across a bicyclist who had fallen and hurt her knee.  I climbed a hill
to try and get a cell phone signal without success.  But a billy goat
successfully chased me off the hill - thankfully wasn't injured and there
was a fence at the bottom.  Did an impromptu splint and got the cyclist and
her bike to a hospital instead.  Everyone survived.

I actually lived not too far from goats on the coast, and I was 4 blocks

Sue,
What it means is that you are a University of Oregon fan.  These folks like to call themselves Ducks for some strange reason.  I guess having grown up in Minnesota and shot a lot of ducks, I have an aversion to such references now that I live in Oregon.  Having attended the University of Minnesota, I certainly wouldn't want to call myself a Golden Gopher!

yes Les...  i tried to order Tom's new El Salvador #19, and the Yirg =
wound up in my basket.  i placed the rest of the order, and today when =
the automatic e-mail came confirming the order, i replied back to Maria =
asking her to manually add the #19.
  i would like some opinions from all you long-time roasters.  please =
help this newbie.  the order i placed last night was for 2#'s ea. of 15 =
different caf's and 7 different de-caf's.  depending on how many friends =
and family members fall in love w/ the coffees, and/or want to start =
roasting, this order could last a 6 mos. to a year.
  the questions are; 1) how to store the greens? (i did order the canvas =
bags too), and 2) would it have made more sense to let Tom store the =
coffee and order what i can roast in say, 3 month's time?  3) i'm =
roasting w/ a turbo/crazy rig, and am wondering what effect the length =
of roast times have on taste, i.e. 5 min. to first crack, vs. 10 min; or =
3 min. between first and second vs. 5min.
  thanks for all the expertise i see on the list!  and the sense of =
community is so special!  
i sincerely appreciate any and all feedback!
