I just drew from a bunch of crumpled slips of paper out of a small bucket and the last entry was the first exit. Congratulations to Peter Z for the luck of the draw, and I hope you enjoy the aged coffee. 8-) It's the only green from Tom that I just didn't "get". :-[ Of course, I seem to recall him saying that aged coffees can be hard to get to know. Or something like that. Thanks to all for playing along! Happy Thanksgiving. Dean Hunting for a small box in the weeds in Iowa.

Thanks Dean, I sent you my address. Sounds like a good way for a drawing to me :) PeterZ Dean wrote: <Snip>
Ginny, I did not win a few of the offerings, other folks did win also. Besides, I enter a lot of drawings. And then, I have not been keeping track. PeterZ Thinking of what to offer for another tradition, here in LHC. badabingbadabean wrote: <Snip>
To me it seems that I am ahead on my tradition offerings, but it may be just a feeling I have. Not sure how to check, but the way the 'tradition' is supposed to work is that something of like value be offered to the list when something is won. Is anyone keeping score? Maybe it should not be a keeping score thing, but I like the idea of sharing like we do here, and it is nice to be able to give something back on occasion, even if it means that someone has to win something. Nope, that isn't a bad thing either. Some days I get so confused. Hope you all have a great turkey day :) PeterZ Off to roast for tomorrows feast, here in LHC Michael Wascher wrote: <Snip>

Greetings- Friday morning we tried the Aged Sumatra I roasted earlier this week. As it cooled the woody notes got stronger and stronger. To the point we started refering to it as "stump coffee". We decided that this coffee, while interesting and certainly different, was not for us. Therefore, I've got just over 300 gms to pass along to someone. Here's the catch, while open to everyone, I'd prefer this went to somoene who hasn't tried this coffee yet. So, drop me an email off list if you're interested. Entries are due by midnight Pacific time this Sunday (March 5). I'll draw a name Monday after work. Demian (who's apparently not into woody coffee).
Well, I won't be entering as because of your post I had to go roast the Aged Sumatra. Throwing caution to the wind, I mixed it 50:50 with the Monsooned Malabar post roast and pulled a shot. Talk about a shot to be reckoned with. It will but wind in your sails! Just for giggles, and of course for the sake of balance, I mixed the pair with the rare Kenya (that Tom sold out in 3 days) at 1/3 each. Yawoza! I like wood apparently.

Ok, drum roll please.... From the proverbial hat (couldn't find my box of dice with strange numbers of sides) we drew the name of Peter Zulkowski. Congrats PeterZ. Send me a snail mail address off list and I'll get the coffee out the door to you in the next couple of days. Thanks to all who entered.
