Stu,
This list is only about one source, Sweet Maria's.  If you meant something
different, please clarify.
Respectfully,
Eddie

Hi Stu,
I'm not sure there really is such a beastie, well, except in the most 
general way. For example, every Dick and Harry has a yirgacheffe all 
year long, but only our Tom (well, and a few other roasters I guess ;)) 
have a particular yirg, and once it's gone, it's gone.
I was very glad when I really fell for a particular SM blend (in my case 
the moka kadir). It's a great bean for sharing, and its presence in my 
stash keeps me from panicking when I miss out on (or use up) one of the 
great SO beans.

many sources?
Colombian excelso or supremo. These usually taste very good, and there is
enough to go around. Unfortunately, not many lots meet Tom's standards.

It will depend at least in part upon your tastes. First thing is to have a =

that some are overpriced.

Read fast ... it was typed fast ...
I am in the middle of a one-cup Swissgold pour-over of Columbia Excelso
13556 that I roasted Saturday to Full City in the Gene Cafe with the profile
... chocolate heaven tickling the darkness of an Indonesian and one can
almost drink the aroma!

One more thing... No variety of coffee bean is the same all the time. There
are many variables in what the beans from even a particular coffee tree will
taste like from year to year, such as temps, precipitation, and so forth. So
there can be big changes in the beans from a given coffee tree from year to
year. That is why we are very fortunate to have an active merchant such as
Tom to go, every year, to the various coffee markets and sample many lots of
beans, so that we end up choosing from the most desirable of the world's
coffee beans. At any given time, the best beans available in the world will
be found on the Sweet Maria's website. And, the current crop will be
accompanied by a detailed review.
