Topic: Green must-haves? (7 msgs / 151 lines)
1) From: Paul Martin
While waiting for the new shipment of Kenyans to be posted to SM, I'm trying
to put together my second order.  Just curious as to any must-haves, either
new or old favorites you always order?  Thanks!

Yup, that is my go-to bean. Getting my greens, unless I pony up for 
airmail, takes about a month. And somehow, the packages that come by 
plane always seem to have broken bags. I sometimes cut it a bit close to 
the wire. I always have a good supply of MK in reserve these days. 
Heaven forbid I might have to buy beans someone else has roasted ;).

Considering my tendency to over-stash, running out of greens isn't likely
for me. But if I do, I'm luckier than most in that Jittery Joe's (local
roaster / coffee shops) roastmaster has offered to sell me greens if I need
them. I've never tried his, because I like SM too much (as evidenced by my
90+ lbs stash), but it's comforting to know they're there.

Of the one's I've tried so far:
Guatemal Fraijanes - Finca Agua Tibia - a crowd please that everyone
calls "smooth"
Brazil FTO Dry-Process Poco Fundo - intense chocolate with some rustic
fruit @ FC+
Brazil Screen-Dried Moreninha Formosa - intense chocolate and heavy body @ FC+
India Mysore Nuggets Extra Bold - people at work ask for this by name
Java Government Estate Pancoer - I like the Javas ...
Sumatra Classic Mandeling - reference previous email about this coffee
Sumatra 19+ TP - Lake Tawar - I liked this so much that I ordered more
Hope this helps ...

Thanks for the suggestions, guys.  I may have to give up waiting on the
Kenya and just order.  My stash has dwindled down to nothing and I'm
drinking some charred beans from the mermaid. 8^o
