Subject: RE: Congratulations!!
Good morning Mr. Doss,
Thanks very much for the congratulations - and your patronage through
Sweet Maria's. It is folks like Tom and Maria that have made this coffee
known to the public and, I would add, taken a big gamble in doing so. When
Tom first bought at $21, to me it was incredible that he was reselling with
such a minimal markup, although I guess that is a big advantage of selling
internet - a whole lot of costs are eliminated. I will be very curious to
see how he prices this coffee and also, how it sells.
In about two years we hope to have more come into production so that the
volume can go up and the price down a little.
Again, thanks for your note,
Hda. La Esmeralda,
(507) 720 3202

thanks to all the hard working people that help grow one of the finest
coffees in the world.

At some point between French and fire, it really doesn't matter much what
the "origin character" of the coffee was ...
