You will get over it.  :-)
If it makes you any happier, the CR La Minita is one of my least favorite
coffees. You can have my share.
Costa Rica coffees in general do nothing for me. There is no standout
flavor, just a plain good cup. I have not tried the La Minita for several
years. IMO why pay a premium for a middle of the road coffee?
However, the hacienda La Minita is also involved in some other countries,
especially the Narino region of Colombia. These are excellent coffees. If
you see La Minita in the cupping review, buy it.

I find it to have a lot of fruity flavors. Its one of the few coffees I like
unblended.
Ill pass on your 7 yr old coffee, but can you recommend something of similar
taste, that you do like?
Thx :)

I think the driver is that Tom cups and buys excellent coffee.  If a given
crop doesn't meet his standard, he skips it.  He has reported several good
coffees that haven't been purchased in a subsequent year when the cupping
did not bear out the expectation...
You are allowed to groan on list when the coffee you want doesn't show up -
everybody does this from time to time...

The SM Peaberry is hard to beat.  It is the only CR that I order now.

I agree with almost everything you say about beans, Les.  That's one
of the reasons I buy 20 pounders now.  Once you tell everybody, I'm
afraid there won't be anything left.
Take care,
Ann

I don't know, I sorta like living on the edge, with no stash to speak 
of. Sure. I never had much to begin with, but, somehow, I managed to 
roast about 20 pounds of coffee in the past 30 days. I've got 10 pounds 
on order, but it better hurry up and get here.

Vicki,
Gives me chest pain just thinking about being out of coffee.  Then
there's the comments that would come from my husband, daughter,
son-in-law, relatives and customers.  I oriented to another job at
regional telephone advice yesterday. Just another little job to get
extra cash. When I left, I asked if they drank coffee.  Both said yes,
one decaf and the other caffeinated.  I just happened to have 1/2 lb
of decaf and two 1/2 lb bags of caff with me.  I left them with their
noses attached to the bags.
Take care,
Ann
