Roasted three half pounders today. Sometimes a roast can be sad. Just
knowing may never smell quite the same heavenly aroma of blackberry =
currant
winey syrup overlaying lemon drops as roast progresses through 1st of =
last
of stash Kenya Mbwinjeru while yes delightful, was also a bit sad. (Vac =
bag
sealed since sourced SM 6/05) But knowing there are other and will =
always be
other coffees in the future just as enticing in their own rights tempers =
the
sorrow. But it's still sad to say good-bye to another good friend. 
But wait, it's not good-bye yet! Gotta let it rest, then grind and brew =
some
Café' Crema Americanos and cappuccinos and enjoy that aspect of this =
fine
Mbwinjeru before saying my final farewells, now that's something to look
forward to!

I know the feeling. Someone jsut asked about Uganda, and that is sad, 
because the Sipi Falls project seems to have unraveled and (like alot 
of things in E africa) the horizon is bleak. Zimbabwe, for anyone who 
reads the news, is the biggest issue. The farmer responsible for the 
Dandoni Estate coffee we have bought made one last shipment and left 
the country. He had been beaten once, and wasn't going to wait around 
for it to happen again - he was on record as anti-Mugabe and that can 
be hazardous to your health at this point. Kenyas are looking very 
good for new crop. I dare say, I think I went nuts ... but as each 
week passes I have found some really amazing lots. It was slow at 
first, but then about a month ago the quality just went through the 
roof. I have tried to make sure that the lots have a wide variety of 
charater, not just screaming bright, but deep-toned, winey lots too. 
It takes about 6 weeks in transit so I think our first lot arrives in 
1 week. Also, someone asked about mexico - 2 very, VERY nice Oaxaca 
lots are coming. Trouble with El Olivo this year - the reneged on a 
contract, an almost unheard of thing with a reputable farm. I am 
trying to find out from their end what happened, but they are 
probably going to be blacklisted. I don't know how it is in Mexico, 
but in countries like Costa Rica you get thrown out of the specialty 
coffee association for such things. They might have good reason, but 
at this point, no El Olivo this year.

Hey Dennis you are not too far away from Ugnada.  How about sending one of
those F-18s on a Bugisu mission for us?

So does this mean no more Bugisu?

Maybe an AC130 would handle our demand better.

St Helena is out of my price range, and now>>>>>===..................Bugisu
is not forth coming.  I'll just have to crrrr, no,  I don't,  lets see, I
have some wonderful Rwanda Butare Bourbon in the stash, and Duhingekawa on
the next order list.  I still have some great Panamas in the stash and don't
forget the two Konas in the stash as well as the Guatemala Aqua Tibia just
arrived.  AHHHHH, life is still good.  One of last years Kenya offerings is
resting for Thursday morning's brew.  I had the last of a great home blend
this morning from the Cremina, and a TV pot of Guatemala "maria especial"
from last year is on tap for tomorrow.  Yes life is still good even without
the BUG.  I'll be roasting one of my last two pounds on Saturday.

Les, our stashes may never be identical but are always oh so similar:-)
Yeah, too bad to hear about the Bug but if it's (super)humanly possible and
cups good Tom will figure out a way to source some, he usually does. But no,
just can't even talk about the ridiculous prices being asked for ISH greens
these days...you'd think it was Kopi!
