1) From: Lex Johnson
Hi Tom:
Is there any Guatemala Oriente Dry-Process in the pipeline for this year?
It was one of my favorites in 2008.
Thanks,
Lex

Mine too.
Welcome to the blessing and curse that is specialty coffee - a natural agricultural product that, along with farming techniques, is subject to variable weather. We have Tom to thank for finding us the best of what is out there, which is a constant search because what was knock-your-socks-off one year may be ho-hum next year. This also means that what was dreck last year may be this year's big hit. I'd bet that more crappy coffee passes Tom's lips than the wonderful nectar we have come to expect from his company.
That said, I'm a big fan of the dry processed coffees that Tom has found from origins that typically wet process - if you liked the Oriente DP, you might look for similar coffees when they are available.

in Countries that normally wet-process. http://www.jimseven.com/2010/02/10/the-naturals-debate/miKe

Interesting. Thanks for posting that. However, if you like the particular flavor profile of DP's, then it is desirable. It's not a fanaticism thing, it has nothing to do with the idea of DP, just the flavors.  And of course, like most consumers, we're blind to the cost of that flavor, and this article does pose some eye-openers, such as risk for the farmer. I argue that if you can produce a desirable product, there are rewards too, if you can get top dollar for your product. That may not always be possible.
The argument that washed coffees yield higher quality is moot. I'm interested low quality DP coffees. Washed coffees make it easier to get higher quality at a lower cost, but you don't get the same character as a quality DP. A clean cup isn't always what I'm after :D
the original article referenced is here:http://www.intelligentsiacoffee.com/blog/view/7973which puts the "obsession with dry-processed coffees" argument in it's original perspective.
And I'm not a fanatic. I like variety. I like washed coffees and naturals alike. But the ones I really really remember are the IMVs, the, Costa Rica Brumas DP, Guatemala Oriente, Mexico Organic Nayarit, Brazil Ipanema....
