Topic: Christmas Eve Triple Tradition Offering (6 msgs / 172 lines)
1) From: Jerry
I was the lucky winner of two recent Tradition offerings.  Aaron most 
generously paid a Sweet Maria's gift certificate in my name and I was 
also fortunate to win the jello bean mold from Kris Bhatti.  It's time 
to pay up, so here is what I am offering.  There isn't enough time to 
complete this and get the items to the winners before Christmas so I 
will hold some kind of drawing sometime in the evening on Christmas 
Eve.  There will be three separate drawings.
*Tradition A:*  A 12 ounce Könitz porcelain coffee mug made in Germany 
heaping full of green Idido Misty Valley coffee beans (approx 12 oz. net 
weight) from Sweet Maria's.
*Tradition B:*  Six ounces of homemade chocolate.  These chocolates are 
a mixture of white chocolates and dark (approximately 70% cocoa) 
chocolate.  The cocoa beans are from Tabasco, Mexico and were roasted in 
the RK Drum.  Included in this small sampling of chocolate are some 
chocolate covered coffee beans.  Actually they are jelly bean shaped 
chocolates, molded in the jello bean mold from Kris and contain a 
roasted IMV coffee bean.
*Tradition C:*  2007 is the 400 year anniversary of the Jamestown 
Settlement, the first English settlement in the New World.  I am 
offering a set of two espresso cups and saucers commemorating this 400th 
anniversary year.
You can see these offerings by scrolling to the bottom of my webpage at http://members.cox.net/javajerry/To enter, please send me an OFFLIST e-mail stating your order of 
preference,  i.e. B, C, A (or whatever).  In case of ties, I will figure 
out some kind of tiebreaker (probably the order names were drawn).  It 
would also be helpful if you included your address and contact phone for 
DHL shipment.
Good Luck,
JavaJerry

I'm not sure this went out properly the 1st time I sent it, so if you 
are seeing this twice, my apologies.

Jerry,
Great web page. I enjoyed the tradition photos, especially the coffee
beans roasted to *$ level in the Tradition B photo (just kidding!).

Thanks Brian.  Actually the coffee beans inside the chocolate in 
Tradition B are IMV roasted to C+.

Jerry,
I'm surprised that you coated C+ roasted beans with chocolate; I would
have assumed that you would have used beans roasted a bit darker, to
the "chocolaty" flavors. But then, for some reason, I cannot get
myself to do post-roast munch tests, so I really don't know what whole
roasted beans taste like, and especially don't know how they differ
among roasts.
Again, great site, I greatly enjoyed reading through it and enjoyed your photos.

I thought the C+ might be a little light and also that the IMV beans 
might be a bit small in relation to the amount of chocolate.  But C+ IMV 
was all I had roasted so I used it.  It adds a nice *crunch* to the 
chocolate bite - and a nice burst of coffee flavor that melds well with 
the dark chocolate.  I was tempted to use two coffee beans in each 
candy; I am glad I didn't.
Glad you like the website.  It is a work in progress.
