So, the El Salvador Yellow Bourbon, the Bali (because I still haven't had it), some more IMV (almost through 10 lbs already...), Kenya Giankanja Coop sounds interesting, PNG Kimel (haven't had this one yet either), and the Brazil Coromandel... That's what I have so far... I'm only looking to spend about $80-$100 because I have to replace an engine in my truck (again, this will be number 2 in about 9 months... agggh! vehicles can be so frustrating) so I have about -$3000, yet somehow enough for coffee...? Funny how that works... again, that's logic for you. But anyway, am I missing any other "you have got to try this" coffees? I have a bunch of the Cameroon (which is really a lot of fun), some El Sal Pacamara Peaberry, and CR Dota Dry-Process, so those don't have to be counted in.

Something to consider on budgeting for coffee: The 20lb bags are cheaper per pound; If you buy three 20lb bags, SM will knock another 15% off the price... So consider saving some money by purchasing one or three coffees as "staples", and then augment from time to time with a flat-rate 12 pound box consisting of six 2lb'ers... This is how I keep my overall budget in check... AND, yes I miss a few along the way... But reading here is ALMOST as good as quaffing the nectar myself...

Don't let the numbers fool you - they indicate calculations based on how the coffee measures in multiple areas... BUT, all of Tom's coffee's are great coffees. There are coffees in the 90's that are very high in various categories, yet they don't necessarily taste like the greatest coffees known to man... There are coffees in the low 80's that may well be the best coffees you will ever taste... So it's not just about "high ratings", it's about which coffees most closely fit the taste profiles which best suit your palatte...
