Maybe Tom can get some for when the current Ugh offering runs out. Even 
if it takes the current Ugh a year or two to run out, it shouldn't make 
much difference.

Apparently they will be coming to a cofffee shop near one  of us, if =
this
post is right:
    They're used for blending. Those type of old coffees are called in
Colombia "reposados"(rested). They have a peculiar smell something like =
soil
but once they are roasted this smell disappears. And since it is used =
for
mixing with other newer and better coffees, most regular people won't =
notice
it.

Ron,
     My understanding is that there are several processes by which 
producers "age" the coffee to get a desired result.  It is somewhat 
like aging cheese. I see nothing that indicates this old coffee was 
anything but stored.  I would call it old coffee rather than aged 
coffee.

Yeah Jim I kinda thought the same thing, I just could not get over how long
it had been stored and people were still willing to pay $195 for 60 kilo
bags.

Actually, the prices were in Brazilian Reals. In US$ they paid from 
about $50-70.

 That coffee is being sold just because of the frenzy going on
in the coffee comodities futures markets, and that's why the
post was on a commodities web site. The price is in Brazilian
dollars, which I think are worth a lot less than US dollars.

it doesn't sound much better...:-)
