Last week our local high school put on a hunger awareness banquet at 
our church.  It raised some $3,000.00 for what is called the Etta 
Project which works with women in Bolivia.  I roasted the last of my 
Bolivia Organic Peaberry "De Montana" which was well received.  This 
was a fitting way to end a wonderful coffee.  I am now patiently 
waiting for any new Bolivian Coffees that Sweet Maria's may make 
available.  This is a good time of the year to anticipate!  The 
Bolivians have been real winners in my book.
Unfortunately, samples of Bolivia have been really, really 
unremarkable this year, and I can say that having cupped a LOT. I 
think it is a crop-wide problem ... not bad, just plain and low 
intensity (too low, I feel). I still have some samples coming in so 
it's not time to write if off for '07. -Tom

Tom - Too bad... Bolivia was my first SM Love! Bought my largest order - I
think it was ten lbs - and I even say the country's name with such
love  (ah...Bolivia...)
Fortunately, you have what seems like a zillion other coffees that are
exceptional (so many beans, so little time..)
David - thanks for sharing such a nice experience! I think you did have a
terrific ending for the last of your Bolivia De Montana.

Interesting as the last of my Bolivia De Montana is next on my roasting
schedule.

Yeah, sad to say, I managed to ruin my very last batch. Well, don't know if
it was actually ruined, but it wasn't roasted as good as the rest.
That's the chance one takes w/stove top roasting - if anything distracting
comes my way (like now, it'll be the smoke alarm going off, and the
immediate whining of my littlest dog - not necessarily in that order (he
just figures if I've got anything hot on the stove, that loud scary noise
will follow). So I end up trying to roast with my little Sammy in arms,
usually...

Wow - so good to see high school kids so perceptive of the plight of others,
but so sad that it had to come out of tragedy.
My heart goes out to them...

HA! Yes... yes, indeed. Sammy is the smallest of my three (yes, three -
count 'em) dogs. He has a number of fears, which now includes the smoke
alarm... Just dogs here in this household, no husbands...
Emma, on the other hand, is my border collie who loves to munch on coffee
beans. It's a mad dash for me to keep her from eating any, since they are
toxic for dogs (she had a series of seizures last summer, & just had one
last week.)
Oops - sorry for the off topic conversation, but trying to let folks picture
me, one dog (long-haired chihuahua/pappilion, perhaps) on one of my
shoulders, trying to stir the beans as they roast on the stove, spilling
some on the floor, yelling at Emma ("NO!!!") as I try to rescue the ones
that spilled, smoke alarm going off - and Shiloh, my biggest & oldest dog,
just watching the show on the sidelines.....
