yes, people that don't usually order from SM have been notified in other
forums.  This is a rare commodity this year.

This is where I see how right Tom was about the size of coffee 
stashes for some of us where money may be tight.  I have about 32 
pounds, small by some standards, normal by others and big by a few, I 
suppose.  I just bought a pound, the limit, of one of the special 
coffees that one must try two weeks ago.  Due to some major, on-going 
health bills I can only afford so much.  I let my stash get to the 
point that while I can afford the IMV, the act of purchasing it would 
be selfish.  I am kicking myself.  I knew this might happen.
Like others on this list, I brew for one.  While I give some away, I 
have found that only a few want to really taste good coffee.  They 
just don't get it - "coffee is coffee, it is all the same!"  I nearly 
choked when I heard that one from a friend.  I will be giving a good 
amount a way for the holidays to those I know will truly like it and 
"get" it.  But, for now I have blown it.  I need to blow through 
about 15 pounds before I order more.  Then I can order the great 
coffees when they come in.  This is killing me.  I can't decide if I 
should make this one exception and buy it, but then there will be 
another and another.  I bought the India Anohki Coffee (Liberica)
and swore that would be it while I concentrated on getting better at 
roasting with the coffees I have and then when down by about half, I 
would buy again.
Am I way off of this?  I just can't be sure I can get through all of 
this coffee fast enough.  Come on, someone talk me into buying the IMV!!

If you're projected stash will last much longer than a year I'd curtail
buying except for absolute must tries never had it before and Les said to
buy it. Oh wait, that won't work or your stash will never be under control!
 
Seriously I went two years buying very little greens getting my stash down
to a manageable level. Manageable defined as a level that wasn't going to be
sitting 2 or 3 years going baggy. It was difficult passing on many
offerings, but better than the alternative of continuing to buy every
tempting offering and then have some dang primo greens loose what made them
so special having them around too long.

Idido Misty Valley!  Stephen,  you know your stash is doing well when you
run out of a bean just about the time Tom gets the next years crop.  I have
one more roast of last year's IMV left in the stash.  Last year, I bought 22
pounds of this great coffee. (I do roast for my two daughters as well as 3
coffee drinkers in the house.)  My recommendation is that if this is one of
your top five coffees and a must have, put it on your next order list.  My
guess is Tom will have this one for awhile.  He is offering it in a 20
pounder.  The other thing you can do, is to watch it!  When the "low stock"
shows up limiting your order to say 2 or 5 pounds.  It is time to go out on
the limb and order.  I have been working my stash down and that is what I
did with the Aqua Tibia this year.  I knew I wanted some, but I also really
wanted to get the stash under control.  I am almost there, but I still got
my 2 pounds of Aqua Tibia.

I am guessing we will have Idido Misty Valley until late November/ 
early December. I can't see it making it until Christmas. Last year 
there was a second arrival in January, but it was a bit less 
impressive than the first, and I downgraded the score and review 
accordingly. That was a hard decision for me, to offer the second 
lot, because it was that hair "lesser" than the first, yet on it's 
own it was outstanding still. I am not sure I would make the same 
decision this year if the circumstances are the same, because knowing 
the coffee can be a 91, and comes in as a 89 just doesn't sit right 
with me. This years lot is excellent, and considering the state of 
the other dry-process ethiopias (with the exception of our excellent 
special selection Sidamo) it is no less than a miracle. The prep 
isn't as beautiful as last year, as far as I can recall, but then 
again, we're not taking eye-candy here. we drink the stuff!
