Topic: Unexpected Portland trip > Thur. Morning Cup (4 msgs / 99 lines)

Tom,
Sorry you couldn't make it over the Columbia river to Vancouver before
leaving. :-( 
Hmmm, wondering if your trip had anything to do with 50# vacuum sealed bags
from Panama shared with Wayne. Six landed for me yesterday, first roast of
my actual Esmeralda auction lot batch 5 in the CCR HT as I type...

Damn the post roast bean munch (of still cooling rather warm beans) was
yummy! No illusions or delusions definitely not as effervescent as the top
Lots, but Lot 5 definitely ain't no light weight 2nd class bean. Ok, 2nd
class compared to the very top Panama Esmeralda Gesha Lots costing 17 times
more, but not 2nd class compared to the plethora of other beans out there! 
Sorry for replying to my own post, but somewhat exuberant about scoring and
now receiving a Panama Esmeralda Special Gesha Auction Lot. :-)
Now to roast a couple more batches for a regular who saw the boxes of greens
and ordered a LB even though it's not on my roasted offering sheet yet...
He's the type of coffee guy who yes paid $15 for A CUP over at Rivermaiden
that was talked about on List. But he didn't spring $100 for a half LB from
them/Stumptown. Did a LB from me though of the '07 Esmeralda mixed Lots
stuff for much less than the half that IMO wasn't all that much better,
except for the bragging rights of course.:-)

No apology necessary, miKe.  Since you are in receipt of and enjoying
your first Panama Auction Lot while passionately pursuing your dream,
I would expect you to be a bit more than "somewhat" exuberant.  I'm
not one to start or perpetuate rumors, but I heard you were spotted in
your cafe, after hours, doing the jig!

Wow Mike that is so cool!  Congrats on the bid that won an awesome lot!
I'll be having Gesha tomorrow.  Not Panama Gesha, but *Guatemala Acatenango
Gesha.*  This is the last of the Gesha in the stash.  I figure I had better
be out before the big guns start showing up on the offering sheet!
