Topic: What to order.... (16 msgs / 434 lines)
1) From: Brian Kamnetz
I am so wishy-washy when it comes time to order that I drive MYSELF nuts. I
drink only one mug of coffee a day, so I use up only half a pound per week.
I like to order with Hold for Harvey, so you can see the 12 pounds of greens
lasts a VERY long time.
I just about ordered earlier today, but then chickened out. I was going to
order the following:
Ethiopia Organic Idido Misty Valley DP -  It seems that there have been
raves for this, so I was going to order 4 pounds
Guatemala "Blue Quetzal" Bourbon - raves, but fewer, so I was going to order
2 pounds
So, that is six pounds, and I filled out with blind guessing on the other
six pounds.
As is often and accurately mentioned on this list, ALL

2) From: Brian Kamnetz
Sorry for my previous post; I'm not sure what I did, but I posted before I
meant to.
Anyway, as is often and accurately mentioned on this list, ALL of Tom's
coffees are very good. However, people raved about the Yellow Bourbon, so I
got that, and it was WONDERFUL! So now I hate to order, because I have the
feeling that as soon as I do, another "Yellow Bourbon" (i.e., something
especially wonderful) will show up, and I will have to forgo it because my
stash will be filled.
What to do, what to do....

Brian,
I know how you feel...I too drink 1 mug a day, maybe two; it's always  
a struggle when I order. I had 11 different coffees in my cart, and  
could not click the 'proceed' button. I get buyer remorse when I do  
order...
I know that I do enjoy the Cost Rica Dota Hermosa, this one seemed to  
really surprise me.
Peace,

Add one of the samplers for part of that remaining 6 pounds.  I've  
never gone wrong getting one of the samplers and they introduce you  
to other things that you might not have chosen to order.

Brian,
Our tastes may differ, but if I may proffer some suggestions ... I have
really enjoyed these along with the two that you have already mentioned.
Mexico Organic Nayarit Terruno - Excellent mild coffee
Columbia Cauca Organic - La Esperanza
Ethiopia FTO DP Sidamo
Rwanda Migongo Bourbon
Timor FTO Maubesse
Hope this helps ...
Eddie

Order one of everything.  share the coffee with neighbors, co workers, 
etc, that way you don't have to worry about it going bad.
order a sample pack from sm's... if ya can't figger out what you want 
yourself, let them do it for you.

Thanks for pointing that out, Jeff. Early January is just about gone, so it
should be here soon. Now I HAVE to wait! (Guess this means I will have to
learn to roast the 2# of Monsooned Elephant....)

Thanks, Eddie. If you liked the two I mentioned, I will probably like the
ones you mention. If my stash gets too low and I freak out and order, I will
certainly refer to your suggestions.

Brian,
Definitely get some of the Misty Valley, especially if you like African
coffees.  After you've been ordering from Sweet Maria's for a while, you'll
develop sort of a sixth-sense that will tell you "don't miss out".  For me
that sense usually comes from some extra enthusiasm Tom shares on certain
coffees in his review.  I feel that the Misty Valley is one of those and
ordered 5lbs last week.
This only helps you with 1lb of your needs, but get your pound of "Nicaragua
Cup of Excellence #17 - San Antonio".  I went through a couple lbs of that
like it was butter and wished I'd ordered more before it became low in
stock.
Also, if you don't have any Sulawesi Grade One Toraja or Ethiopian Sidamo on
hand, they are default staples in my stash.  They are both great as a SO
coffees and excellent in blends.

If you have not tried the Misty Valley, it is a must.  All of the CoE's are
excellent.  Now is a good time to order.  We are a couple of months away
from the Brazil CoE's hitting our shore.  Check out Tom's reviews with
comments like,  "I did little but to immediately recognize that I had a gem
of a coffee in front of me, and buy up all that I possibly could (given that
I need another Guatemala offering like I need to catch the flu - we are
overloaded!) I can't resist a good coffee, even when it makes no "business
sense." " (Thomas Owen) about  the *Guatemala "Blue Quetzal" Bourbon.
*Those are buy, buy, buy words to me!
*  *Check out your stash and give it some variety.  Go for the coffees with
the high cupping numbers.  I always order a coffee with a rating over 90.

I'm surprised no one has yet mentioned the Congo Kivu Peaberry. I  
really enjoy this coffee. Rustic, as (IIRC) Les said, mellowing out  
as it rests to lovely broad flavors including chocolate and a bit of  
woodsiness. I made a batch for myself today for the trip to work and  
for the thermos, and it was splendid all day. Even "thermos disorder"  
didn't dint its outstanding flavor. An all-around, workaday,  
satisfying coffee!

I think anything cup-rated at 87 or more merits very serious consideration.
