I'll be there later this week. Will any of the other list members be there, and if so, want to meet up somewhere at the convention? We won't be going out in search of coffeeshops because I'm bringing several pounds of homeroast with me, for myself, my friends, and to give away as part of preaching the joys of roast-your-own. It's amusing to be remembered as "the button chick with that terrific coffee" and not "writer of that %*#$ module that my character DIED in!". I guess there are some things more important to SOME gamers than their game :) As for what I'll bring, it'll be pretty much "whatever in the stash we've got lots of or want to get rid of because we liked others better". Finishing off some 1/4-1/2 remnants of 2003/2004 Brazil & El Salvadar CoE winners Finishing off a bag of 2004 Kenya Karugwa, looks like about a pound left Ethiopian Yirgacheffe (2002? Still tastes fine, but some loss of delicate overtones--an untrained palate without fresher to compare will never catch on) Mexican Oaxaca & Guatamala types from 2003-2004 A couple of decaf roasts for a friend who can't drink leaded A Monsooned Malabar and an Aged Sumatra Lintong to demonstrate "stunt" coffees By request: A Uganda "Sipi Falls" Tomorrow (Tuesday) the Gesha gets roasted. It does not come to the convention with me: it stays home and my husband gets to try it all on his lonesome when he's back in town this weekend. He's home Friday-Saturday-Sunday, and I'm timing it so he gets the Gesha on days 3-4-5 per the list recommendations. Sharon - "Pssst, wanna try some home-roasted coffee? The first baggie's free!"
What is "Origins"? Obviously I had no plans to attend this conference but seeing as I am located in Columbus, 'what the heck?' Don On 6/26/06, Sharon Allsup wrote: <Snip> -- Don
I thought the "origins convention" might be a celebration of the founding of sweet maria's (started in Ohio - not so?) That would be a excellent reason to get together :) sarah (just started roasting in BC) anywhoo here the real origins sitehttp://www.originsgames.com/On 6/26/06, Don Cummings wrote: <Snip>

Sharon I know nothing of the Origins convention in Columbus, but I can give you a personalized tour of the exterior of the original location of SweetMaria's. Sadly, not much to see now. I used to drop in there every so often to add to my stash. Tom got me started with a loaned Poppery II. Dave Working in Columbus, OH - about 10 minutes from the original location of SweetMaria's unfortunately about 23 hours or so from the current location of SweetMaria's ------------ Date: Mon, 26 Jun 2006 15:29:52 -0700 From: Sarah To: homeroast Subject: Re: +Anyone going to Origins in Columbus, Ohio Reply-To: homeroast I thought the "origins convention" might be a celebration of the founding of sweet maria's (started in Ohio - not so?)
