IMV: It will be late again - probably Oct late arrival, maybe early 
November. It makes me nervous to get coffees that late, but we'll 
see. To clarify, some roasters that might have Misty Valley might not 
be offering the Bagersh grade one misty valley, but the "menno misty 
valley". Both are good. The Menno would be fresh though, and they 
Bagersh IMV would be showing age for sure ... then again, the Menno 
coffee is NOT grade one type preparation, the IMV is. Some roasters 
sites, such as equator coffee, don't distinguish between the two, but 
buy both. not that there's anything wrong with that necessarily, just 
pointing it out. IMV is definitely a more spendy coffee. We have an 
allotment this year, but I will be cupping it critically, since we 
also have late shipments of vacuum packed wet process and naturals 
due around the same time, and the right of refussal on all of them. 
We'll see. As far as I am concerned, Koratie and Dale naturals are 
spectacular, without the special preparation. I can't remember a year 
we had so many amazing naturals, almost too many. And it's not just 
enthiopia, it's all these special central america naturals. We have a 
big lot of Guatemala natural coming online soon - cupping the arrival 
sample today it's like eating fresh melon, passionfruit, peach - 
amazing. As far as ethiopias, its the wet process that have been more 
scarce this year, and  I am hoping our  late crop vac packed lots 
come in really good. Wet process Koratie is basically sold out ...
Anyway, thats the updates...
