Didn't have Kona Purple Mountain (no longer in stash but 8 other Konas:-) or Australian Mt Top (AMT still in stash too though) but started off our Sunday morning with Kona Premium Coffee Company Estate Peaberry Americanos. While I was fixin' breakfast Debi asked for a white chocolate mochaccino for her second cup, so made us a couple with Panama Eleta shots. Now having an after breakfast Sumatra TimTim Blangili Americano. HoHum:-) In an hour or so we'll be headin' out to catch a movie, will pull a Summer Jam Blend ristretto before we go for a nice long linger... Thinking maybe DP Yirg' Americanos might be nice after smoked sturgeon dinner!

To know I must first not know. And in knowing know I know not. Each Personal enlightenment found exploring the many divergent foot steps of Those who have gone before.
Well, I polished off the last of my number one El Injerto this AM. That was a winner! I am going to pull some cappos of El Salvador Juan Franciso in a couple of minutes. I will be roasting something this afternooon, but I have not decided yet which one I will do next. I still have some Panama Jaramillio "Geisha Blue." I am leaning toward some more of that yummy stuff! Les On 10/8/06, miKe mcKoffee wrote: <Snip>
Made a Kwik Drip pot of El Salvador Juan Francisco tonight for our Parents o f Teens class at church. WOW - smooth smooth smooth. Totally yummy. I have to read again what Tom said, but this coffee is just terrific. I also like using the Kwik Drip because it makes 18 cups at once, and because in the 50 years since it came out, there's nothing like it for convenience....

I just polished off an Olympia Cremina Cappo of the Juan Fancisco. Smooth with some nice fruit with chocolate finish! Tom, you found a real Gem here! This coffee has plenty of body to make an awesome cappo! Les On 10/8/06, Brett Mason wrote: <Snip>

I can't believe again how nice the Gesha beans look after they are roasted. Another roast done to the targeted city-full city roast. What a bummer on the Kilmanjaro, Sandy. I have mine waiting in line to be roasted. I am into the "old" - "new" method of stash reduction. We are going to visit my daughter next weekend and she will get some of the "old" as will my other daughter before heading back to college. They get a fall break. I am proud of Mike getting his stash down. I would like to get mine down a bit more so when these flurries of awesome coffees come in I would feel free to order two pounders instead of one pounders. At least that is my rational in getting the stash down. I also use the delete button and eliminate one "want" when I order. Les On 10/8/06, Sandy Andina wrote: <Snip>
Before I left for church and some errands (and what turned out to be a bit of my own Series of Unfortunate Events) I made my little Moka pot of mostly Costa Rican La Magnolia SWP Decaf with a smidgen of beans from the last of my Bolivia Organic Peaberry De Montana stash (which I roasted a tad more than I prefer, yet it is still as smooth as can be). The combination gives a smooth, rich, round and full flavor - oh, so good. The taste lingered on my mouth later, when I locked my keys out of my car, and sat in the too-warm weather (it must have reached the UPPER '70's today!) wait for AAA (after they mistakenly told me that I wasn't a member). It was still there when the AAA almost couldn't get the door open (car is basically falling apart, one electronic device at at time, with the buttons halfway smooshed in), and it was still there when I ended up not being able to send out a package at UPS. And when I finally cruised on my way home, I kept thinking about yet another cup of bliss... Lynne On Oct 8, 2006, at 9:31 PM, Les wrote: <Snip>
