Ed, Ed, Ed ...
A link to Sweet Maria's, plus links to Homeroasters.org, and a link to
"The Truth About Coffee" on WebMD ... we were all set to award you
three times as many CSA points.
HOWEVER!  Two clicks later and I end up reading the following quotes!
"I purchased Folgers 100% Columbian coffee and LOVE IT. It's shown as
med-dark and boy is it strong. I love it.  If there is a thread
already covering this topic, please show me to it!  If not, what kind
of coffee do you prefer?"
"I like a really dark roast coffee. Our coffee vendor brought some
samples on Friday and I am in love with this Cafe Sumba blend they
have! It is fantastic! It doesn't have that bitter taste dark coffee
tends to have.  I usually buy the Kroger or Walmart brand Italian
"I buy the Starbucks Verona Blend.  I don't love it, but I am too
cheap to get more expensive beans."
You have go to get the word out over there ...
We will have to take this request for CSA points before committee.

Yeah, but Ed does what he can. And since Ed was around the home roasting
scene about the time Kaldi's goats first discovered the secret bean, and as
someone who goes to such mod' extremes like thishttp://www.homeroaster.com/supermod.htmlEd can have any CSA points he claims.
However Ed is awarded zero points, he didn't claim them, he asked for

How can we turn in CSA points for beans to roast?  Now there's an 
opportunity for advancement!  Like merit badges in scouts.  You get points 
for roasting coffee over a campfire, building your own roaster, putting 
together a successful espresso blend from homeroast, converting someone to 
homeroasting, supplying the office with homeroast, swearing off 
restaurant/office/supermarket coffee, etc...
