Topic: Where's the new coffee (15 msgs / 277 lines)
1) From: Howell Ite
Where is the new coffee we were promised:')  I'm suffering from new coffee withdrawal.  I stayed up late last night checking the web site.  Currently I'm forcing myself to roast a couple of pounds of coffee that are close to a year old ever since I read the e-mails about people's green coffee going bad.

Oh man, I have so much cupping and review work going on right now. 
Anyway, I only managed to get the new Kenya posted last night, but 
now I have a batch of the coffees fully reviewed and ready to upload. 
Going up in 5 minutes, just proofreading the review for the 1st place 
Guatemala Cup of Excellence coffee (yes it is super high priced but 
not as much as the #1 panama was!)

Tom,
Thanks again for giving us the opportunity to try this level of
quality.  I feel humbled that I should have access, and sincerely
thank you for your time and effort in providing us with it.
One pound limit!  You folks had better get with the program quickly,
I've got a hunch that this won't last long.
Mike (just plain)

Oh no!  I went to the SM site,  I just bought a bunch of great
coffees!  How can anyone pass up a coffee with a name like "Ethiopia
Organic Idido Misty Valley DP"?  Just the name alone should cause you
to hit the order button!  Besides reading the review got me
salivating!  I was disciplined however! I didn't order all the new
ones.  The only new one I didn't order was the Costa Rican.   So when
I go to work in a week or so and someone asks what coffee I am
drinking, I will be able to say "Ethopian Organic Idido Misty Valley"
With a name like that it has to be really good.  We already know it is
good or Tom wouldn't have stocked it.  Christmas has arrived for the
taste buds!

Oh my....  Happened to me too.  I bet Tom has magnets under his green coffee
offerings server....
I just ordered:
 El Salvador- The Juan Francisco Project -5 lbs
 Ethiopia Organic Idido Misty Valley DP -5 lbs
   4-Pack Coffee Sampler
The 4 pack is just to stay abreast of what else is out there...
Hope you also get yours (once mine is fulfilled and shipped)

thanks! I actually regret that so many coffees came on line at once, 
because they each deserve consideration on their own. anyway, the 
ethiopia idido dry process is really extraordinary, and i have made 
sure we will have this lot in stock a long, long time ... well into 
next year (guessing maybe until february?) so there is no rush to try 
it. With the smallest lots of expensive CoE we limited it to 1 lb, so 
that should make those last a bit longer.

Hey Tom,
I doubt any of the rest of us are regretting it!  Seeing all of these
coffees in Sept-October reminds me of the spring surprises from Brazil and
elsewhere!  I am enjoying all of my coffees, but there is something special
knowing that 3 CoE coffees are on the way along with a couple of other
unique coffees.  I can just picture that small farm high up on the volcano
where the El Salvador - The Juan Francisco Project coffee comes from,  what
a labor of love!  Thanks for bring us all of these unique coffees.  You can
be sure that most us will be giving each the consideration they deserve.

Tom,
Thanks so much for all your hard work and this list.  I guess I will just
have to make my second Harvey order in as many days.
My wife, new lover of coffee (homeroast only of course) is now excited about
looking through the coffees and making a selection.
Thanks again, to both Tom and Maria, and everyone else that makes this
happen over there!
Respectfully,
Eddie

Tom, I'm glad you got a large lot of the Idido.  I have missed out on a 
few great coffees that disappeared almost overnight. I don't plan on 
missing this one. It seems like your business has picked up a lot over 
the last year. I really doubt that you'll get the Idido to last past 
Christmas.
It's cool to see you working with growers on ways of improving quality.  
It's a real win-win-win for grower, seller and drinker.
Mahalo,
George

Thanks Tom!  I got my order in, all ready for Harvey.  I think he will
be very busy this week.

wow next febuary till it runs out eh? thats good very good. now I am such a noobie that I realize and admit that I dont even know how to respond to the posts and have them reappear under mine ? thats ok. I am also admitting that I am still having fun trying to find the sweet spot on most of the coffees in my stash right now. therefore I think it wise for me to stay away from those expensive cup of excelence coffees...maybe I will get one of them not too sure I wouldnt just overshoot the roast level by accident though. I do know that this coffee I have been drinking over the last 3 months is better than any ever before. I am a cook so I know a little bit about the gourmet stuff. I really enjoyed that podcast on CG too Tom, thanks again.

Glad to hear it, since I *did* succumb to all the new coffees *except* 
the Ethiopian and the Costa Rican. Top priority will be getting them 
all to my wife's palate before she sees the Visa bill....
