I can only say wow!
Placed my order for 12lbs of beans on Wed (2/14) at 5:30pm (EST, or is it
EDT?). Today, Sat (2/17) the USPS truck pulled up to my door at 1:00pm to
deliver my beans. That's less than 72 hours!
I live in rural New Hampshire (on a dirt road rural) - almost as far as one
can get from Oakland CA in the continental US.
Thanks SM and Harvey!
Which to roast first?!?!
Tanzania Mount Meru Nkoanekoli
Ethiopia Org Idido Misty Valley (this is a reorder)
Columbia Tolima Planada El Jordan
Brazil Cachoeira da Grama - Yellow Bourbon
Nicaragua Limoncillo Est Var. Java
Mexico Org Nayarit Terruno
Not to mention the 32.5 lbs in my existing stash.
We should all have such hard problems.

Mexico Organic Nayarit Terruno ... a soft, sweet treat.

Roasted my 2nd batch of Mexican Organic Nayarit Terruno and 1st batch of Columbian Tollma 
Plananda El Jordan on my new RK Drum set up last night.  Early sampling today indicates that I will 
be pleased with both.  My first roast of the Nayarit Terruno was less of a roast and more of a bake.  
While my pallet is not as discerning as some on this site (yet), I would characterize the results as flat 
and bitter (particularly as the cup cooled).  The second attempt (higher heat profile) appears to have 
produced a much better result.  
I'm looking forward to expanding my stash (per you list)  as I gain more confidence in my roasting

Which to roast first? That's easy. For freshness it's very important
to follow a strict FIFO policy of stash rotation. Which was the first one
you removed from the box?

I'm not sure that my list is anything to go by - just a bunch of eclectic
choices made by browsing and reading Tom's notes.

I roasted (HG/DB and I am no expert here) a pound of IMV yesterday and made
a pot of it immediately and gave half of the remainder to a friend.  I can't
get over how tasty it is on next to no rest.  I think I may have to get
another 5 of that!
