Eddie...surely they must jest. 
...nice vac pots for $3, Poppery's for $3 to $6, and a very nice flat =
burr grinder from Portugal with a doser - free! I should've bought the =
ditter I found the other day for $50. Ditter = coffee grinder like =
most grocery stores use in the grind your own section. Not everyone =
brags about the things they find/the deals they get...

I just wish I could!  Hurricane Katrina messed all that kind of stuff up in
this entire region.  The best I've done is a small moka pot for $1.89 and a
Toastmaster popper for $1.99 and I don't use the popper anymore.

his cupping review...

Had been wondering too. Emailed sm today to find out (before I saw this
post) Prefer to buy from sm than the other source that has it.

7) From: Les
Edward,
I hope Tom doesn't shoot me, but I would encourage you to buy a pound from
the other source and then get at least a pound or more from Tom when he gets
it.  Roast a batch of both.  Mark them underneath with an A and a B and have
your wife, girl friend, friend, or dog move them around and to do a
blind taste test.  I can almost guarantee that the cupped and screened
coffee you bought from Tom will be superior and you will not be tempted to
buy inferior beans again.  It isn't too often I buy from someone except
Sweet Marias.  I say this because (1) if Tom cups it and it isn't up to par
he will reject it. (2) I think the suppliers know Tom's reputation and he is
getting the best of the best so they can make a sale.

Les   I agree 100% and that's why I've been waiting for Tom to restock. It
was only if for whatever reason they were not going to be able to restock
that I'd chance on the other source. I know Tom will get the right bags and
more importantly not the wrong bags in a particular lot.

I'm not familiar with this bean (I'm a newbie, remember). Is it primarily
for espresso? Would I be wasting good beans to get some when it becomes
available when I don't have an espresso machine? The closest I have is a
Bialetti Moka pot.
Just tryin' to learn.

Larry,
This is for any brew method.  I have never had it in an espresso and it is,
thus far, my favorite coffee to date!

Try making a macchiato or cappuccino with it, delightful.

Not too bright as an SO?  I usually roast it to City/City+ ... do I need to
take it a wee bit darker for the shot?

I've brewed it Drip, presspot and Aeropress.  Think "nectar of the
gods" for all three methods.  It is such a fine coffee that unless you
messed up the brew I think it would be *very* good in any method.

For a cappuccino (or for some macchiato) the brightness won't be over
powering but rather smoothed and mellowed, but not tamed, by the small
amount of naturally sweet micro-foamed milk. Shot wise get your shot temp up
so it won't be sour, 203 to 205f. Bright SOs can make some of the most
amazing cappuccinos IMO! Try it with a vibrant Kenya or WP Yirg' sometime:-)

This is one of those 'Not To Be Missed' beans.  It'll respond to anything
you want to do with it.....and respond exceedingly well.

OK, I'm tryin' to learn the lingo here, but I can't figure out what SO is an
acronym for.  Unless it's just short for 'espresso'. Is that it?

Larry,
On this list, with respect to the coffee beans, SO = Single Origin, as
opposed to a blend, which is a combination of at least 2 single origins.
Hope that helps ...

That is correct, though in our household, coffee seems to have become

I roasted some of this as a gift this past weekend and had a little left
over for myself.  I opened the coffee cabinet this morning and kept trying
to reach for the other coffees, but this one kept doing the the "Arnold
Horshack routine" ... it had only 2.5 days rest, but I relented ... brewed
in Technivorm with a Swissgold filter.  I tried several times to "drink
deeply" of the aromas, but I couldn't do it; it was so good, so overwhelming
that it would cause me to gasp every time ... like stepping outside in the
winter and having a cold wind take your breath away.  There are notes of
Meyer Lemon and blueberry.  An exquisite cup, but the remainder awaits 5
days rest.
