In the same vein as Les' "First Coffee of 2008," what are your first
roasts of 2008?
The following are fresh out of the RK Drum (not all for me):
1)  Kenya Ruiru - Oaklands Estate Peaberry (oh, I can't wait!)
2)  India Mysore Nuggets Extra Bold
3)  Mexico Organic Nayarit Terruno
4)  Brazil Cerrado Screen-Dried Moreninha Formosa
5)  Sumatra Blue Batak "Tarbarita" Peaberry
6)  Bali Kintamani Arabica
7)  Java Government Estate Djampit

I just finished 4 batches: Kenya Ruiruiru, PNG Kimel PB, Rwanda Kinunu
Bourbon and some Monsooned Java Arabica.  First roasting in a while.  A
bit of allergy funk kept me from roasting for about a week.  Luckily I
had enough roasted up.

I'm expecting my Christam swap coffee to arrive any-time-now. IIRC
it's Guatemala Finca Antigua. I still have some Kona roasted, and some
Brazil Cachoeira de Gama, Yellow Bourbon. So I don't know what regular
coffee will be first. But yesterday I gave away the only decaf I had
roasted, almost 1/2 lb of a delicious mexican of sort.
So my 1st roast of the year will be an as yet undetermined decaf later today.

De-lurking for a moment to chime in on an easy thread to chime in on. :)
Nicaraguan was in the roaster for the first roast of 2008 yesterday. I
am not sure of the lot or batch or anything else about it other than
it was from Nicaragua. We're gonna give it a taste in another day or
two.
Happy New Year everyone!
