Topic: Vacation Salvation in Statesboro (9 msgs / 226 lines)
1) From: Eddie Dove
A couple Fridays ago my wife, 5-year-old son and I began driving
across the country for a 10-day family vacation.  A few hours into the
journey my wife nearly caused the car to implode with a huge gasp,
"THE COFFEE!"  Those precursors to exquisite elixir were still in
stasis  in the freezer  at home!
While upsetting, all was not lost because we planned on stopping by to
see Scott.  When we arrived, not only did we have a great lunch break
and awesome customer service by both Scott and Josh, we picked up nine
bags of different coffees to share with the rest of the family.
Amongst the packages was some freshly roasted Malawi.   I had never
had it before, but it was a great coffee.  We also procured some
spectacular Nicaragua Matagalpa.   When we got in to the car to
continue our trek, I poured some into the Dale Earnhardt ceramic
travel mug from the Thermos full that we had purchased from Scott.
The car was instantly filled with a wonderful aroma and the first
taste evoked and audible, "WOW!"
If any of you folks ever happen to be in or around the Statesboro,
Georgia area, I highly recommend stopping by fellow-list-member Scott
Miller's, Ogeechee River Coffee Company.  He has a really nice place
with wonderful staff and great food and coffee; the flags of
coffee-origin countries that hang from the ceiling are a really nice
touch.
During vacation, I would get up and make a few pots of coffee in the
Chemex, and then some more when that was gone.  On our way home, my
wife told me that after I had gone outside, my brother had brought his
wife a cup of that coffee.  Upon indulging in the first sip, she
looked at him and said, "Now that's a good cup of coffee."  Thanks
Scott!!!

"...even further west" Than Hickam? It took 5hrs to get there, then another
nine hours after we refueled, to the country where they grow Philippine
coffee. -ro

8) From: Scott Miller
Just like last time you and the family came, and with visits from other
members of this list and other coffee related sites I haunt, spending time
with like minded coffee enthusiasts is always a fun, rewarding experience.
I learned about Nicaraguan beans and how good they can be from SM purchases.
Sure wish there was more coffee from Malawi to choose from. I think it's a
landlocked country so coffee has a hard path to get to the USA unscathed, I
guess.
I've been roasting like a crazy man for a couple days now to catch up on
wholesale orders and retail stuff. This going on vacation thing is going to
wear me out to the point where I need another vacation!
cheers,
Scott
