Topic: Anyone going to Origins in Columbus, Ohio (7 msgs / 124 lines)
1) From: Sharon Allsup
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?'

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 :)

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.

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

Didn't realize there was another lister in Columbus. I am over in Gahanna.
At least until mid-July when I move back home to Philadelphia.

Hello fellow Ohio posters... I'm in the Youngstown area (also not going to
the Origins conference).
