Topic: Coffee grown in LA (6 msgs / 118 lines)
1) From: Michael Wascher
An article in the LA Times (link appended) about a grower in LA (whose more
mainstream crops are exotic fruit) that wants to compete with Kona. The
article says this is his "first true crop", whatever that means.
I wish I were near enough LA to check it out. Anybody want to submit a
tasting?http://articles.latimes.com/2010/dec/03/food/la-fo-marketwatch-20101203"Divide and rule, a sound motto. Unite and lead a better one." Johann

3) From: Tom & Maria - Sweet Maria's Coffee
I posted a video about our 2010 Finca West Oakland crop on the weblog 
and youtube:http://sweetmarias.com/weblogCoffee grown in California climates is going to be pretty awful 
unless you can manage to get some flavor and sweetness from it by 
manipulating  the processing, which some would see as a cheat toward 
quality. The thing you might never be able to change is the softness 
of the bean  - coffee grown at 10 meters or 50 meters or 500 meters 
has not yet shown the ability to taste like coffee grown at 1500 
meters.

Love the parting shot. 
Nothing like marketing, eh?
You really need a pet civet cat for next year's crop...

5) From: Michael Wascher
I watched Tom's video before seeing the LA story. Maria makes the same face
that Jean (my wife) makes when sh tastes a beer/wine/coffee that she doesn't
like.
There seem to be other animals that are capable of processing beans (Tom had
beans that had passed through a South American bird), so maybe a civet cat
optional?
Maybe Ben would like a puppy?
