Topic: Luna Bee Birthday Tradition (12 msgs / 277 lines)
1) From: Kris McN
Hi All,
My baby (Luna Bee) turned 1 on Saturday.  !!  I pretty much had her on-list
- those of you who've been on the list for over a year may remember I
botched a gesha roast while in labor - so to commemorate, I'm starting a new
Tradition.  I have a nice, porcelain demitasse set I picked up somewhere
along the way, still in the box even. I'll send that along with half a pound
of the fantastic Guatemala Oriente DP roasted up, plus some other roasted
beans (maybe Menno's?) to be determined, to the winner.  A good chance to
try the Oriente - an unusually processed Guatemalan - if you're curious but
haven't wanted to commit to poundage.  I'm not at home at the moment, so I'm
not looking at the set, but it has 6 or 8 straight-sided cups and matching
saucers with a nice pattern.  I'll post a picture later.
If you want to be included in the drawing, email me with your name offlist (
krismcn) by 5pm Pacific on Saturday.  I'll let Luna pick the
winner (probably whichever crumpled up piece of paper she stuffs into her
mouth first!).
Best,
Kris McN

Excellent. This is 1 year since I joined the list. One of the first  
things I remember about this list - that crazy lady who was in labor,  
and still roasting. I joined the list on Nov 5, and the posting was  
Nov 7.
Here's a memory to commemorate the occasion:

Well, now a follow-up to the follow-up....
I've been iRoasting for the better part of a year, and now adding HG  
roasting to the mix.
Joshua, almost 6 years old now, won't touch the stuff.
Alexander (now almost 4 years old) loved drinking from my coffee  
slushes this summer, and will drink an occasional cup of coffee-milk  
(1/3 coffee, a little sugar) with me.
Andrew, at 1.5, is still a bit young for roasting. Soon, maybe :)
Mazel tov, and a happy birthday, Luna Bee!

Thanks for the walk down memory lane, Allon.  The here and now gets so busy,
it's nice to stop and think back.

Congratulations to Bee. How did you pick her name?

Sent from a Treo phone.

9) From: Kris McN
Well, we wanted something uncommon, but not too weird, and we just liked
it.  We had "Lucy" in our heads for a long time for a girl, but our son is
Linus, and you just can't have a Linus AND Lucy (we get enough questions
about Peanuts/Snoopy as it is).  Luna sort of has a Lucy feel (Lu-, 2
syllables).  Bea had been on our list too, but there is a girl in Linus'
preschool named Bea, but it's pronounced Bay-uh (her family is Colombian).
So I wanted to avoid any confusion about pronunciation, and I like the
aesthetic of the double e.
Kind of a long answer, but, since you asked... :-)
Best,
Kris McN

How neat, young LBMcN Kris.
And men are alleged to be messy with their
pancakes!
Ben got an early start on learning Technique. There'll be time enough to
learn coffee etiquette. He'll be a natural at cupping!
