Topic: $3.69 a pound (17 msgs / 362 lines)
1) From: Les
Just did a sample areo brew of the Columbia Excelso 13556.  This is a
Columbian coffee that Juan Valdez could only dream about!  Great
chocolate and that nice smooth finish that really sets a Columbia
coffee apart from the rest.  If you go for a 10 pounder it is only
$3.69 a pound.  That ought to offset some of those more expensive
coffees in the stash.  However, this stuff is so good, I am not sure I
want to give this stuff to my daughter!  If you are looking for a real
sleeper that is inexpensive (Tom doesn't carry cheap coffee.) coffee,
you need to put some of this on your order list!

Darn it les, between you and that other feller here constantly braggin 
on how good the coffee's are im never gonna git my stash down to a 
respectable level...
err wait.. would that be DISrespectable level if it Oh my god, drops 
below 100 pounds??
seriously though every time it seems I give away a batch of greens to 
someone, or roast up several pounds to hand out, posts like yours come 
out and I end up ordering another 12 pounds, to throw on top of the 
other 112 pounds of beans I need to eventually roast and drink....
what I have been doing lately is, doing up 5.5 ounce roasts at a time 
with my I roasts... sampling one or two cups from it and giving the 
remaining beans away to friends / family / co workers etc etc... but 
still I got so many bags I still need to try, and now im gonna probably 
order even more  ::sigh::
oh well, perhaps I need to start drinking more coffee... just double up 
on the blood pressure medication and I should be good to go right?  
sleep is over rated anyways.

My 10 pounder arrived two days ago - haven't gone there yet.  But I am a
Colombian nut, so I might just order a bunch more...
Can't wait to roast some - maybe today - it's my birthday so wth I should do
it...
Regards all,
Brett

Nice catch Les. Thanks for the info. I'm partial to Columbian, so  
this is perfect! Will definitely add this one to my next order.  
Especially with the holidays coming up. I'll be sending a lot of  
coffee to family. Or will I? ;-)

Thanks guys,
THis threas lead me to SM & the autoclick respones kicked in
& increased the stash another 12#.
Penny isn't a deterrant, as when I say "what do you think?" to
a new possible order she says "Go for it".
She saw the 100 ton truck comment and said "Hmmm".
I have managed to distract her, as there isn't room in the garage.
It's good I'm not subbed to a Farrari list.

Well, my Taylor 414rce not only did NOT come back from the shop, but  
they can't figure out what's making it distort like crazy--they tried  
it with different cables, batteries and amps, with the same results.  
(Same thing happened in 1/04, 3 months after I bought it and 4 months  
after it was built, and they totally replaced the entire pickup/ 
preamp system--worked fine for 2-1/2 years after that). Back to the  
factory it goes. Sigh. At least I have other good guitars....and  
coffee. Coffee is so dependable by comparison--even when it comes to  
roasting, barista skills and cleaning the espresso machine.

After working several years in a high end stereo/guitar/mechanical watch 
store, I am quite convinced that all of these devices have minds of 
their own.  I clearly remember the Stereophile show in NYC (a big 
important event).  We had a room and had gone all out.  Five channels of 
very high end sound.  I went down in the morning to turn on the 
equipment, and one of the big CAT amps (about ten grand each) burst into 
flames.  Very spectacular.  It had been tested and broken in, but 
decided to be difficult.  Fortunately Ken (the owner of CAT) had another 
in his car.  Our guitar tech told me that the guitars tended to 
misbehave to protest the marginal abilities of their owners.  That, of 
course, is not the case in this instance!!
Coffee is easier, although my Isomac has decided that it doesn't like to 
produce any pressure.  After my move from my current money sucking 
abode, I will have it repaired.  It is PIDed, with a huge external SSR, 
and really can't be shipped, so I guess I am going to drive up to Albany 
with it.  Thank goodness Chris is at least on the same coast.
I just got back from various family visits in Delaware (met Lani), 
Virginia, and Maryland.  Wowed the folks with Tom's decaf Costa Rican 
and a Melitta pour over.  I carried a little whirly blade grinder.  We 
have a pawn shop up here called "Good Old Tom's"  They always end the 
commercials by saying, "Thanks, Tom."  Me too.  Thanks, Tom!

I think all electronics gear is equipped with a secret user stress
sensor mechanism. I.e, the more you need it to work NOW, the less
likely it will do so!
I think the tech is wrong... if the guitars acted up to protest the
player's marginal ability, mine would have gone on strike years ago!
My level of guitar playing is about as lame as it gets, but my 314CE
just keeps helping me out as best it can. I am convinced it makes me
sound better than I am. (But, I don't usually plug it in, either!)

I promise you, Les and I are not the same person. After all, Les is a 
master at turning wood (re: his tampers) and I am what you call a 
"wood butcher" - if I even tried to turn a tamper, you would know 
that to be the same person, we would have to be dr jeckyl and mr hyde.

(along the same lines, if you ever tasted my barbeque, i can prove i 
am not Mike either)
