I echo your sentiments, Jared. I'm not exactly a spring chicken, and generally considered a pretty decent fellow, but *I've* got a lot of catching up to do when it comes to the likes of Les, Ginny, Tom, Maria and all the home roasting list members in general. It's quite a group and its about more than just coffee, I think.
BTW, is Tom back from Colombia yet? It's been a while.

You guys are amazing.  You must either naturally get more kind and
generous as you age or I have a heck of a lot of catching up to do. 
Thanks again Les and Ginny.  Jared

WOW.  Mind-bogglingly generous.  Thank you ever so much, Ginny and Les.
And Les, just let me know if you ever decide to branch out into work
like custom falconry block perches.  It might mean doing with eating
out for a month or two, but I'd do it - my little girl deserves only
the best for her tootsies to rest upon when she does her public
appearances at conservation and biology talks !
(ignore the saker & gyrfalcon in these photos ... my girl is all of
151 grams, less than 1/2 their length and 1/10th that of the birds
used as props here)http://www.frugalfalconer.com/1187.htmOr something like these, but with a heavily weighed base (to prevent
tipover) in lieu of the spike: http://www.falconryonline.com/graphics/blocks.jpgAnd sealed/varnished out the wazoo, of course :)

Sharon-
What kind of bird do you fly? I worked for a falconer for a while and
it was really cool to come into work in the morning and see his male
peregrine just sitting on his perch waiting for attention. The female
was too agressive to hang out indoors in "public". I'm a birder too
and that made it interesting.

some high falutin' coffee and that he would be back next
week and that there are some Brazils to add.

Currently I've got just an American Kestrel.  Buffy the Starling
Slayer, or Budgie, or whatever - her name changes depending upon her
mood, my mood, etc :)   At my permit level, I could have pretty much
any non-endangered bird but I've had a soft spot for k-birds ever
since I was a girl and spent one magical summer running around a farm
with a pair of imprinted kestrels following to see what I kicked up
for them :) (your falconer friend will likely wince at hearing that -
tell him it was pre-Act and pre-awareness!  LOL)
Les is interested in turning a falcon perch for me.  So WOOOHOOOO!!! 
THANK YOU!!!! Just a few details to work out, and there will be
pictures posted when it's all done, trust me.
To bring this back to coffee, it's fun to bring homeroast to the local
falconry meet campouts.  Someone always brings a jar of instant
crystals, and ends up taking it all back home once people find out
that the *good* coffee is in the baggie Sharon brought :)  They love
the homeroast, but I have only converted one to the point he went out
and got a roaster and is doing it himself.  But hey, one at a time,
that's how armies are recruited, no?
