Topic: Mystery Bean (8 msgs / 116 lines)
1) From: Jeff Spirer
A local coffee shop that roasts its beans, knowing that I home roast, gave 
me a sample they had received of very tiny beans.  They couldn't use the 
beans because they were too small for the holes in their roaster.  I 
finally got around to roasting them and they made an absolutely wonderful 
espresso, the best since I started home roasting.  When I went back to find 
out what the beans were, and look for them at Sweet Maria's, they could 
only remember that they were from Maui.  Checking the SM web site, there 
was nothing from Maui.  Does anyone know anything about these beans?

The coffee is probably Maui Mocca. I believe Tom had
some of this in stock awhile back and it was excellent.
I wish he would get more of it.

perhaps they were a peaberry, as these are very small beans.

When I talked to the Smiths in Kona a month ago, they told me that 
the Maui coffee farmers had closed shop, and weren't even going to 
pick their last crop. Ciao,

The Kaanipali Farm?  I guess I'll have to savor what I have left of it
then, and not rush through it!

Wait! There's an alternative...
Who wants to start a business in Maui?...
Tom's Coffee Coop!

Unfortunately, I know NOTHING about business or coffee growing.  But it 
seems a dream job.

Until you figure in the backbreaking hours of work in the fields, bending 
over to pick the precious fruits one by one...
Would be nice, though, to run a specialty co-op like that and actually pay 
workers good wages, coffee pickers are sooo unappreciated, especially by 
the swill drinkers who complain about paying more than 75 cents for a cup..
I wonder if coffee you've picked yourself tastes better? :)
