I've wondered about the KMB.  Alas, I can't break away to come and try a 
cup.
I've been through your neighborhood a few tiimes, though.  My family moved 
from Wyoming to Alaska in '55, then back and forth a few times over the 
years.  Much later I was an owner-operator trucker, and delivered machinery 
into Alberta.  I was always knocked off-balance by the level of 
hospitality - owners of businesses I was delivering to would invite me to 
stay at their house, kick their kids out of their bedrooms for me. 
Embarassing and heartwarming at the same time...  Even the motels would 
serve tea and toast in the mornings, by the time I'd leave for the drop I'd 
know how everybody's kids were doing in school and all the latest small 
talk.  When you deliver farm machinery into a farm community you are 
immediately a member of the family.
Since I'm already well on the way to needing an addition on the house for my 
coffee stuff, what's one more?  I'll look around for an SMB.  (hmmm, an SMB 
*and* a Mazzer...)  I'm gonna have to build Mary a scrapbooking room, too.
