Topic: More of a Sweet Maria's question than a coffee question... (3 msgs / 78 lines)
1) From: Silvia Marsh
Just curious if anyone happens to know...
How random are the sampler packs?  Are they predetermined by time period
(basically do they change once a month, or once a season, etc) or by supply
or are they really random?
The reason I ask is that I'll be making another order in the next couple of
days and if I'm not going to get the same coffees, I'm probably going to get
another sampler pack. Heck, I might get the 8-pack this time, then I'm bound
to get at least four coffees I haven't tried yet. ;)
But just for future reference, anybody know this?

Don't know the specific answer to your question but IMO it's always fun AND
a great deal to order the 8# Sample Pack (current price $32, only $4 per
pound!) Great price and just may try a coffee I wouldn't have otherwise. 
My stash was getting precariously low (way down to around 50#, 'bout half
years worth;-) so placed an order for eight 5 pounders earlier today,
started to checkout and realized just in time I'd forgotten a sampler, so
added of course. Four "Hold for Harvey's" worth order, but only $18.81 UPS
Ground CA to WA so sorry Harvey:-) Interestingly order turned out an equal
balance of WP to DP: Sumatra Blue Lintong DP, Ethiopia Organic Idido Misty
Valley DP, Ethiopia Late Harvest Yirgacheffe WP, Sulawesi Grade One Toraja
DP, Rwanda Migongo Bourbon WP, Guatemala "Blue Quetzal" Bourbon WP, Panama
Boquete - Maunier Estate WP and Indonesia Flores Sasandu DP.

first not know. And in knowing know I know not. Each Personal enlightenment
found exploring the many divergent foot steps of Those who have gone before.

I've never comaprerd notes with any other sample pack buyer, but I haven't
noticed a pattern to the several I have bought. they've always contained a
wonderful variety of beans. So if there is any pattern, it is the lack of
pattern ... randomness & variation.
