Topic: Stumptown Panama Gesha for $15 a cup (11 msgs / 189 lines)
1) From: Seth Grandeau
http://www.digtriad.com/news/watercooler/article.aspx?storyid5323&catid6I also heard the story on the local news last night.  I'm not sure where the
"only 8 cups from a half pound" idea comes from.

227g (1/2 lb) of coffee for me is 4 pots of coffee, where that pot is
about 24-32oz of liquid.  that's 3-4 8oz cups, conservatively, or
12-16 cups of coffee, drip, coarsely ground.  They could be making
$60-$120 more per half lb!

They also got a lot of other facts wrong... Stumptown bought a lot  
more than 50 lbs of it... They bougth 5 lots that each had 6 50 lb  
bags... 1500 lbs. Some of that was purchased with Tom, but still. More  
than 50 lbs.
I've found that everytime I hear a new story about something I know  
about, they get the facts wrong. I can only conclude that they always  
get the facts wrong!

And just think about the fact that we can get some of the same beans, roast
them, and enjoy the coffee for about a third the price.  Tom said we can
expect about $5.00 a cup.

FWIW the Esmeralda in question was from the Best of Panama 2007 auction that
went for 130# plus import and shipping costs, not this year's auction Lots.
(Wayne and Tom split it IIRC.) One of my regulars mentioned River Maiden's
Gesha per cup event and at first was told by someone working there it was
the 2008 auction Esmeralda. I let him know that was highly unlikely since
the container with the 2008 crop just left Panama June 9th with ETA to the
importer July 3rd then to be shipped to the auction winners! He further
queried with someone else at River Maiden and they confirmed it was the 2007
not the coming 2008. 
Brewing wise River Maiden was Clover brewing. Suppose it's possible they
were using an oz per cup, I'll try and find time to stop by some time soon
and find out.
Oh, my regular did purchase a $15 cup but not a bag of the $100 1/2#
roasted, he bought a 1/2# of 2007 mixed Lot Esmeralda Gesha from me for
substantially less:-)

That's about what I get, as long as a "cup"  is a mug. I get about 200
grams from a half pound of greens. 200/8 = 25, and I use about 25
grams per mug.

A slightly more accurate measure is that I use about 25 grams to make
one 6-tassse moka pot of coffee.

To him a great dynamic cup and worth it, as it would have been to me if I
was in his shoes. 
Closing email so I'm not tempted to "play" any more, way too much to do Kafe
wise AND PNWG VI wise!!!!

If they use aprox 1gm coffee to 1oz water, & 6 oz/cup, they're bringing in >
$1133/lb.
Even at double strength . . . $567 per LB
Maybe he's trying to make it last.

Uh, 1g:1oz to me would be extremely weak. My starting ratio is 8g:5oz water
then adjust.
