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.

Marc, 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 skills.

Marc, 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? On 2/17/07, Marc wrote: <Snip> -- MichaelB
MichaelB, I think it was the Mexican - so that's 2 votes for the Mexican, guess Iknow what I'm roasting today... On 2/17/07, MichaelB wrote: <Snip>
Craig, 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. -Marc On 2/17/07, Craig Groendyk wrote: <Snip>
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! -F On 2/18/07, Marc wrote: <Snip>
