It's not for me, but for those who can and want to have it, we really are lucky to have such a place as this to purchase our obsession. So thanks Tom for the great coffee and the great prices, compared to the offerings elswhere it really is a bargain. Woody -- "Good night, and Good Coffee"
Tom, i hope this is not too strange but what has an effect on flavor in a coffee, altitude, soil type, weather patterns? Also do the different varietals of coffee have different characteristics that give them a different flavor profile? Also i have noticed that some coffee's reach first and second crack at different temps and times, it this due to bean mass, density, the amount of water in the beans? Sorry that's allot isn't it?

<Snip> What i would like to hear is the comparison <Snip> Personally I'm in the small camp that doesn't care for the high Catuai content of the Carmem Estate finding it a very unclassic Panama charactered cup. Nothing like a good La Berlina or Mama Cata. But then, maybe it's they aren't the typical Panama cup being the Typica varietal!
