Toms review sound worse than the last! But never had the pleasure of the
Vietnamese Gr 1.

When I first started roasting in December, a friend of mine gave me a
half-pound of the pound of Vietnamese Robusto she'd bought as an experiment.
She said 'Use this for practice. It's bad.' So I practiced on it. Actually
brewed some up...and honestly, I was surprised at the time. I was like hey,
this is still better than Folgers.
Then I roasted up some Huehuetenango she gave me, and I realized what I was
in for. ;) I'm now spoiled rotten and the rest of the half-pound of the
thumbs-down coffee is still sitting on my kitchen table (away from my stash,
so it won't get delusions of grandeur).  I can't imagine myself using it for
anything but cooking or crafts now...(somewhat finely-ground coffee grounds
in soap is excellent. Mildly exfoliating and smells awesome)
I do, however, think I'm gonna skip this one. *grins* If Tom's review says
it's worse than the Vietnamese, I think I'll stick with my Misty Valley.

I just read Tom's most recent "special note" about this coffee on the SM
website.  It would appear that he's suggesting using it only for "palate
education" and discourages the use of it for test roasting.  I won't
discount that someone may want to buy these "mucky" coffees for palate
training, but personally don't' see a benefit and would not order them even
if they were free.  Anytime I want to appreciate the great coffees that Tom
works so hard to bring me, all I have to do is get a cup of coffee from a
local restaurant.  If I really want to get to the bottom of the barrel and
reset my palate, I get a cup from one of those by-the-cup automated coffee
vending machines like one finds in a hospital.  I actually got a cup of that
a couple months back and would equate it to water poured through 20yr old
ground pecan shells.  It was truly nasty dreck and Tom's mucky offerings
would be a huge step up from there.
