Topic: Gesha update (3 msgs / 67 lines)
1) From: Tom & Maria - Sweet Maria's Coffee
We received all the vacuum packed Panama Esmerelda Especial Gesha. We 
also received the Guatemala Gesha (much smaller amount this year due 
to wind damage!). So it looks like Gesha Fest 2008 is coming early 
next week.(I need to cup all these side by side and tweak the 
reviews).
A heads up: we listed Ethiopia Koratie WET-process, and it is a 
jaw-dropping washed ethiopia coffee. So now we have the Dry-Process 
and Wet-process from the same cooperative mill. I am going to try to 
visit there in a few weeks and find out more about the project. The 
prep on the wet process is not perfect, and there's a few lighter 
beans in the roast (normal for a dry-process, not something we see in 
wet process - but when you taste this you will forgive these minor 
flaw!)
By the way, Maria is still looking at our losses to see if we can 
continue the SM Flat Rate July special, with some modification. I am 
hoping we can extend it for August with only small changes. I will be 
gone for a large chunk of August (part of it spent as a judge at the 
first-ever Africa cup of excellence competition, Rwanda!) and part of 
it on my first trip to Harar. Very excited about that. So we will 
figure out flat rate before I go.

I hate to reply to my own email, but Tom since you are going to be in Rwanda
and are heading up to Ethiopia, how about making a stop in Uganda and
getting us some good Bugisu again!
