Who's in the know for Chiapas?  What can I expect?  Went on a short whirlwind
trip to drop off a family member in Mexico over the weekend.  Word got around
that I roast.  Wouldn't you know it that one of the relatives we have there
owns land in Chiapas,,,,,to grow coffee!!!. So he brought be a plastic grocery
store bag full of green beans.  Some of them are still whole, with the cherry. 
Most have an outter shell or husk that the bean is inside of.  Very
interesting.  It will be a little work to remove the beans from all those
shells.  
I have maybe a couple pounds of greens.  Anyone have any experience with this,
or a similar bean?  I suspect C to C+ would be safe.  If anyone knows anything
else I'd appreciate the info.

My first decaf was Chiapas from Tom. I roasted to C - C+ and was thrilled by
an intense milk chocolate flavor. I'm a real noob, and that was really early
in my roasting. But it was GOOD.

Cool, thanks.  Not that that means that's what I'll find, but at least I have a
ballpark to work with.
I haven't read anything from Charlie in a while.  We're talking Oaxaca right?

Hi devil - I am expecting a lot from our chiapas this year because i 
went down to the coop we have been working with, and instead of 
having the mix coffee from the small member-communities, we are going 
to cup each groups coffee separately to pick the best. Boy, that's 
terrible sentence structure. Anyway, in working with coops, the 
problem is always the mixing of lots, since each little farmer-member 
has maybe 2-5 bags of coffee. I keep hammering on the idea of "lot 
separation" though, and while it goes a bit against the co-op ethos, 
doubling the price above fair trade has given them great incentive to 
take the idea to heart. I expect samples within a few weeks of each 
little micro lot. In short, Mexico coffees are very near at hand.
And by the way, 2 costa rica  lote are  due at the end of this week, 
i believe, i hope.

When the coffee comes in and is listed, read the review and then order 
right away if it sounds interesting.

When I'm looking for something I usually email and ask. I get an answer 
from Derek or Maria. Most of the time they really can't say for sure but 
sometimes they know one way or the other if it looks like something is 
coming up or not.
Recently asked about decaf Sulawesi and it looks like there isn't any in 
the near future. :(

I thought about that, but wanted to let the list know the disposition 
of the coffee since it was announced here.

I was talking to Doug B. on the phone last night and we are wondering
where all the Kenya coffees are?  In some ways I am glad I am over
stashed in that department!

Sold out, maybe!  We've gone through 2 of 4 offerings so far this year.
Looking at the archives, last year there were only 5 offerings, the year
before that was 9.  If you can tell anything about what's coming from his
cupping log, there may be another couple peaberry lots on the way that sound
very interesting!
