Topic: OT kind of, tiny joy (3 msgs / 105 lines)
1) From:
A short while ago the brown guy brought my box-o-beans; of course my Tiny Joy was included.
For those not familiar with Tiny Joy it is Sweet Maria's bi-monthly newsletter.
Now I know I can read this online but having the usually crumpled, colored paper real macoy Tiny Joy is a pleasure. It's like getting a letter from Grandma. 
The issue I received is the July/August 2006 pink one; thanks Tom for one of my fave colors...
This particular issue is a must read for everyone so if you have never ordered from Sweet Maria's, have never read Tiny Joy online go to the website and read July/August. Read them all, great reads.
Tom's article on auction coffee's, the price of beans in general is one of the best reads ever...
Thank you Tom for taking time to explain to us what happens behind the bean curtain. The time you take to make sure we get the BEST stuff out there, regardless of price, is the reason I buy from Sweet Maria's. I have, through Sweet Maria's, the opportunity to buy one or two pounds of the worlds best beans all year long. Sure I wish I could get "the one I got last year" but reality is that if I could I would miss the new crops that always amaze me.
Way cool. Thank you.
Warmest Regards,
ginny

Ginny,
You are quite right.  Although I do read the Tiny Joy online, I do read it
again when it arrives with an order.  These are great reads and I really
appreciate, like you said, Tom giving us a peek behind the curtain ... it
makes the adventure so much more worth while.

I couldn't agree more ginny, except maybe for the pink part. I really
enjoyed the latest Tiny Joy and have been watching for the review and
listing  of the 1st Place coffee from Guatemala, El Injerto from
Huehuetenango, which Tom says they will offer at about $30 per pound.
Best regard,
Terry
