Topic: Tradition: Ethiopia Lot 30 - 42 nods in <24 hrs! (4 msgs / 145 lines)
1) From: an iconoclast
Wow, 42 people so far in the first 24 hrs!  Included were many
personal pleas to "Pick me! Pick me!"  So much fun!  I will add the
pound of roasted Zigzag blend for a critique and then let you know the
ingredients afterwards.  Everyone who's had it so far loves it.
All you people talking about your recent orders prompted to put in
another order, too.  Especially when you talk about depleting MY
Brazil YB.  Of my original 60lbs, I only have 39 lbs left.  So I
ordered another 40 lbs, despite listening to and feeling in my gut,
MiKe's testimonial to keep his stash under control.  I'm below 200 lbs
again and roasting 12-14 lbs a week...and fall is here.  Demand slowed
a bit in summer, but it was 31.3 degrees here in Zigzag this week and
everyone wants to keep their hands warm and their eyes open. Once I
get enough YB to last till next year, I'll try some of the new beans.
After 18 months of home roasting, I'm finally figuring out what I
really like.
I also ordered an Aeropress for my neice and nephew.  She's an RN and
he's a surgical tech and they've moved back to the Portland/Vancouver
metro area after being travelers for the last 3 years. He likes
espresso and they both like coffee nudges, so the Aeropress will be
perfect for them.  And they work in a hospital, a prime site for
coffee sales.  Especially the surgical staff.  My daughter is an RN on
a surgical floor and some of the docs give her sad eyes to get a cup
of home roasted she keeps brewed.  They buy a couple pounds at a time.
 And cold and flu season always brings more overtime and the need for
caffeine. Life is good!
I'll keep you posted on the Lot 30 odds!
Take care,
Ann

Wow indeed! Last Christmas Kona gifting was the biggest response 4 Christmas
Kona giftings and was only 41 total. 42 in 24 hours. 
I'll trade you a pound of the Kona Competition Winning greens if you draw my
name:-) Only kidding people!

Actual stash size is relative to consumption of course. At your rate a 500#
stash would maybe barely be a year supply!

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.

Ann,
count me in!  I think I'm going to borrow your idea for the winter
holiday season if you don't mind.
