Just a quick "thank you" to SM for the 8lb. sampler pack that just arrived at my door. WOW - what a great variety of top-quality beans. I hadn't ordered a sampler pack since I first started roasting, so I'm glad I tried it again. If anyone wants to sample a whole bunch of great kinds of coffee, I would highly recommend this. It amounts to $4/lb which is a real bargain!!! Is there anyone who regularly orders the samplers? Just curious.
I do periodically. It makes me try beans that I normally may not order ... then find out I like them! Eddie On 9/21/06, Sheila Quinn wrote: <Snip>

I have so much to learn, it's useful to me to have a lot of different beans around to ruin. tim

I've been ordering from SM for over 2 1/2 years. I started ordering the sampler pack 2 years ago. I place approx. 7 to 10 orders a year. With each order, I add a sampler pack. When my order arrives, I get so excited looking for the sampler pack to see what kinds of coffees have been sent to me. It's always a surprise and always so good. I don't think I would have ordered/tasted coffees from all over the world if it weren't for the sampler pack. I just placed an order yesterday for some more "Harar Horse Green Stripe" (love the stuff). This time instead of adding an 8 pack sampler, I only ordered the 4 pack. I have lots of green coffee beans and decided a smaller sampler would have to do at this time. I'm planning on giving some of my roasted coffee to friends and family for Christmas gifts. Roasting my own beans has brought me so much pleasure and joy and fun It's great to have a hobby you can share with loved ones...................Dorothy:)
I was just going through my log book and realized with my first order from SM (over 2 1/2 years ago), I had placed an order for the 8 pack sampler pack. So from the very beginning my taste buds were exposed to the wide world of coffees...how lucky I am..............Dorothy
