Awesome! I like both yemen and el sals. Hope Ike leaves at least one roaster. May have a bunch of funky monsooned coffees when I get back...

Tom-
Incredible visual tour of the coffee lands of Harrar, your pictures and
descriptions are awesome. Even more amazing is that you were traveling a la
carte, quite the adventurer!
My favorite picture from all 10 pages has to be your new CIA haircut, I hope
to catch a glimpse of it when I stop by the shop to pick up my next batch of
greens!
Thanks again for the visual tour !

Thank you so much Tom for the Travelog. I so enjoyed the Ethiopian pictures.  
Call me crazy, but can you sell the burlap MAO bags you receive. I can just 
picture them  framed and in my kitchen?  (Shirley) I am not the only nut in 
thinking of this!  These pictures were amazing, and both made me sad, and wanting 
to travel at the same time.
Thanks for everything you do... Your  company is absolutely wonderful.

What a neat seasoned
roaster.
What persuasion was effective in extracting the roaster from its original
owner?
Note: the '59 Impalahad
35 pounds or more of shiny trim added all over the body. MAO's Bel Air
had the 283 and Power Slide transmission. Had to get the Impale if you
wanted a 348, and that was bored and stroked to the 409 a couple of years
later.. My 3X2 406 couldn't get around them. Pop's '58 Fairlane 500 weighed
4,120- little heavy but a surprise nevertheless.
No coffee was harmed during the simple engine swap. T-10 gearbox, 3.89
gears. Mom was used to a John Deere, but not the stiff clutch.
Cheers, Mabuhay -RayO, aka Opa!
