1) From: an iconoclast
I am, again, thankful I found home roasting.  What a joy to be able to
give gifts I enjoy creating  and others love to receive. For the first
time in my life I have home made gifts to give away.  I sent my
daughter to my sis-in-law with some vac packed beans for an emergency
supply to keep in the freezer, a 5 day old supply of Panama Boquete
and some fresh roasted Zigzag blend and a couple of bags for my nephew
who's visiting to take home with him.
I went to my daughter's holiday work party with her as I used to work
with the nurses she now works with.  They all raved about my coffee,
as my daughter brings samples and sells beans at work.  The person who
received my coffee in the gift exchange was proclaimed very lucky.
So what did I get in the gift exchange?  A $10 gift card to Starbucks.
 My husband will give it away in the family gift exchange.  Much of my
family lives on the opposite side of the city, so are not privy to a
steady supply of my coffee.
I got a card from work from a friend and her fiance. I traded her
coffee for blueberries this summer.  They gave me separate cards and a
joint newsletter.  He drew a coffee bean and a coffee mug on his
envelope and enclosed a great article on coffee as he thought I'd
enjoy it.  He's heard about my passion. So very thoughtful.
My son-in-law just started working at the same hospital my daughter
works at and on the same floor I used to work. I gave him some samples
to brew for the night shift staff.  Today, he said the nurses want to
buy my coffee.  He asked for 10 bags with a pot's worth of beans in
each. He'll give them away for holiday gifts and get the hook sunk,
yank the line and reel them in. This stuff sells itself. I gave him
another bag to brew tonight. What a good way to start work
relationships.
There are only a few things I will need my kids to do for me when I
get old and feeble.
I need them to change the linen on our feather bed as that chore will
be too heavy for me.
And they will have to take over the coffee roasting duties. They can't
stand any other coffee, so I don't think I'll have a problem getting
volunteers once I can't do it anymore.
Thank you all for such good conversation and advice.  I really enjoy this list.
Take care and happy holidays.
Ann

I was invited to my best friends' house for Christmas dinner. This  
year, I was told to bring anything I like, as long as it includes my  
homeroast.  I thought I'd finished my shopping earlier today, and  
just found out that a friend will be coming in from Connecticut to  
join us. I hadn't shopped for her, but I'm sure she wouldn't turn  
down some Aussie Mt. Top or P.R. Yauco Selecto...
