Topic: Report from UK (5 msgs / 70 lines)
1) From: jimgundlach
It is now early morning in the UK and I am awake at 2:30 in the morning because my sleep patterns are still messed up.  So thought I would do a coffee update.  My stash reduction blend of February 29 has not come along with a few days aging as I had hoped, in fact this is the first home roast I can remember that resting did not improve.  Anyway, yesterday we were strolling around on High Street in Oxford and saw a small coffee and tea shop.  Went in and I was surprised to see a selection of familiar names with a sample of the beans roasted to a range from city to Vienna displayed in little boxes with labels describing the characteristics of the coffees.  One was a Nicaragua Pacamara.  I munched one of the beans and asked for a half of a pound of it, the lady tending the store got down the box and found it empty and told me she was sorry but they were out.  I then noticed an Aged Java Old Brown and munched a sample of one of the beans.   I then noticed a sign that said all the
 ir bea
ns had been roasted on March 3, 2008 and were best used before March 17.
    I'm starting to feel sleepy again so I am going back to bed and try to get some more sleep.  I'll try a three day rested Old Brown in a few hours.

That sounds too good to be true.  Are you sure you are not dreaming and
sleep typing.  Jared

Be sure to drop i at the Eagle and Child Pub, go back to the rabbit room,
and read the letter to the proprietor written by CS Lewis and JRR Tolkien.
Then have a pint to toast them....
I happen to have one of their menu's on display here in Iowa....

Whatever you do, don't listen to country music, okay?

Oh, I'd be in heaven!!
(although, a hot cup of tea with some toast & honey would be a perfect toast
to C.S. Lewis..)
