1) From: miKe mcKoffee
Started the morning with a quite delish Kona blend Americano. Smooth,
balanced and mellow with a delightful bright floral a bit citrusy dance.
-KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK-
Hold on a sec', got someone at the door. Open the door to be faced with =
two
fiercesome looking Islanders.
"We're the KSA enforcement squad here to confiscate your Kona stash".
BUT WHY?!? WHAT DID I DO?!?!
"You've been reported for drinking Kona blend".
Oh THAT! Had me worried for second. Let me explain. It was a blend of =
Kona
not Kona blend defiled by lesser coffees. You see I only had enough last =
of
roast batch Moki's Kona for half a shot so mixed it with just coming =
rest
ready Rancho Aloha Kona for a most exquiste pure Kona Café' Crema =
Americano.
"That is indeed a totally different matter. Sorry to have bothered you =
this
fine Saturday morning. But before we go, may we have a cup of Kona?"
No problem come on in. (Bric' goes into action)
"Wow, now that's a mighty fine Kona Americano! Whoever said espresso =
brewing
Kona destroys it's flavor nuance is nuts!"
Thanks, and thanks for your hard work to keep Kona pure. Have a safe =
trip
back to the Islands. Say Hi to Barry for me.

pre-bday
cup-o-Gesha, the first was yesterday at young 3 days rest. While very =
very
good yesterday, as expected even mucho better today, smoother fuller =
more
complex with better acidity definition today. And quite likely right at
target for maximum peak explosion tomorrow!
