Topic: What's on Your Coffee Wishlist? (2 msgs / 83 lines)
1) From: Peter Genuardi
Folks -
I just got done making three coffee wishlists for Christmas and I'm curious
what you've got on yours.  Of course I'll be lucky to get one or two of the
things on these lists, but it was fun to think about what would be really
awesome to get or give for Christmas/Hannukah/Kwanzaa/New Years 2008.
To start the discussion, I've posted my three lists, and the assumptions
that let me dream them up:
Wishlist #1: You've Got a Golden
Parachute
This is the grandest list, as it assumes that a great sum of money finds its
way into Santa's pocket.  It includes some goodies like a coffee farm in
Guatemala, a roastery in Sacremento, and that sweet Hario five pot halogen
powered vac bar.
Wishlist #2: You Get a Bailout (or
Repreive)
This is probably the most realistic and assumes the status quo.  If I get
anything from Santa, my wife, or sister, it will likely come from here.  It
includes the Behmor 1600, a Harar Horse t-shirt, and some choice beans.
Wishlist #3: The Good Will List
Initially, I thought I'd make an "I got laid off list..." but G-d forbid
that happen to me or anyone else, I turned it into the good will list.  What
I would give is the laws of physics and reality didn't apply.  It includes
things like reinvigorating RK Drums, getting everyone to switch to reusable
cups, and delivering beans to our troops abroad.
This was fun to do.  I hope some of you have fun doing it too.
 - Peter
