Topic: First cup of Gesha (5 msgs / 97 lines)
1) From: Les
AHHHHH!  The aroma from the grind was outstanding.  The potpourri
effect in the kitchen was worth the price.  The first sip was delicate
and complex.  The jasmine is there!  The Earl Grey is there.  I would
call the lemon peel more of a bright zest!    I detect a nice hint of
caramel in the after finish that isn't in Tom's description.  There is
a bit of sweet chocolate.  as Tom said, "This is extraordinary stuff."
 This stuff reminds me of St. Helena.  It is so smooth and complex, I
am having a hard time typing and sipping at the same time.  My only
regret is I wish I had roasted in the 3 -2 -1 order  As I take the
final sips of Gesha as it cools, it is like a coffee  malt.  This was
worth the $100.00 experience.

I forgot to say, Thank you Tom for sharing this coffee with us.  I
would have been tempted to keep most of it for myself.

Well, once again, I get to agree with Les.  We just got back from 
Father's Day Brunch and I pulled shots for each of us.  It is so 
amazing.  I /*always*/ have words to add, but Tom and Les have described 
the experience perfectly.  I am so so glad I bought this.  As my husband 
Tom said "we've never had anything like this before!".  And now I'm 
obsessing about it being gone too soon.  I know the logic:  we always 
get great beans.  But.....but........but..........
I want to share it with friends and family, but I also feel like hording 
it.  I don't think I've ever hoarded anything!
Enjoy, all of you who are lucky enough!

And, once again, Mike, it is really terrific to have you -- with your 
humor and your knowledge -- back. 
By the way, does anyone know anything at all about Wandering John?  
That's been a very long time.  I hope he's well.
