1) From: Tom & Maria - Sweet Maria's Coffee
http://www.sweetmarias.com/weblog/?p52
New Coffee Day! We are adding Sumatra Grade 1 Mandheling, Ethiopia 
Yirga Cheffe, Brazil Dry-Process Mogiana, Mexico Organic Chiapas 
Proish Coop, Honduras Organic Marcala -Cocosam Coop, and Kenya Nyeri 
Tegu AB. Here's the briefing. Our limited new lot of Sumatra Grade 1 
has that earthy dark chocolate profile with a bright hint that works 
well at dark roasts. Next is a new Ethiopia Yirga Cheffe with spices, 
honey, cane sugar and medium body. Following that is a favorite in 
Brazil DP Mogiana. Folks will remember this creamy low acid cup with 
mild fruits and milk chocolate. And another favorite returns: Mexico 
Organic Proish. This coffee from Chiapas has hazelnut, can sugar and 
tangy chocolate in the flavor profile as you go toward espresso 
level. The Honduras Organic Cocosam is a restrained cup with malted 
milk, nuts, and an herbal brightness. Last but not least, a new 
Kenya! The Kenya Nyeri Tegu is a customer favorite. Look for a 
complex mix of melon fruit, cherries, muscovado sweetness and more.

6) From: miKe mcKoffee
One of the beauties of ordering from Tom there's really no need to sample
once you know his bean review style. Not once in a decade now have I been
disappointed in a purchase, whether 1 or 5 or 10lbs or multiple 60 pounders
of a special bean to offer now that yeah I've turned pro.
Chains of cafes, that's funny! =

Thanks Tom! Even though i check the site a few times a week it's nice to se=
e what's new in the homeroast thread for those who may not get the chance.
I also have to agree with Mike. After so many years of ordering from you i =
know i can order a large amount for myself just by reading the review knowi=
ng i will like it. One of these days i will post some pics of my Brinkman 2=
000 grill that i have converted over to roasting with an RK drum.
Cheers!

9) From: Barry Luterman
As far as I am concerned the Sumatra is the coffee of the year. I was down
to 3 pounds and was grieving. Ordered another 5 yesterday (the limit
allowed). Will have 8 lbs now still not enough.

MiKe your so right! Tom's consistency and unequaled detailed reviews
really save a lot of sampling and reordering!!!
I was just trying to have a little fun on the list that has been
lacking of late. I miss the drive forward spirit you and others
brought to the list.

11) From: Joseph Robertson
Barry,
Sumatra being one of my favorites, I have noticed that there are some
serious issues with in the global market affecting the ability of roasters
and distributors getting Sumatra greens. I'm not surprised Tom's limit is
8lbs.
I hope it is not green coffee pirates like in Guatemala attacking the
farmers.

I'm a little different when I order. I "limit" myself to 2-pounders, but
like to order multiple coffees, normally 5 or 6. Spread/enjoy the different
varieties that he gets.

Good stratagy in the beginning. After a while you understand your tastes and
Toms descriptions. Then you can really zero in on the best for you. I gave
up blending quite a while ago when I realized this was the best way for me.

Way to go Tom and team!!

Agreed.  The team at Sweet Maria's is amazing.  I just got my new Behmor

Amazing.

18) From: raymanowen
"I've turned pro." So the quote- "To know I must first not know. And in
knowing know I know not" - applies not?
I'm just a learner and will always be one. When I first started roasting I
realized heat is a form of energy that will only flow from an area of high
intensity to an area of low intensity: Hot to Cold. During roasting, with
heat flowing into the bean, thermodynamics demands that the bean interior be
colder than the surface which needs to be colder than the environment in the
roaster as well. Otherwise no heat flow or temperature change where you want
it.
Can't argue with a good roast.

19) From: miKe mcKoffee
You're interpretation not mine. A true "professional" knows he knows not
even close to all there is to know. I'm a Lifetime student of the bean.
Don't know many "home roasters" roasting 45 to 50 plus batches per week 350
to 400 pounds per week. Hence in that sense I've indeed turned "pro". And in
roasting this meager "professional" amount it does indeed enable an even
more accelerated learning of the unending roasting mysteries combining both
of art and science versus roasting strictly for home consumption. This
statement based on 6 years strictly home roasting and just shy of 4 years
"professional" roasting. I am but a beginner of the understandings I seek of
the bean.
And while I've been told by many I'm very good, even damn good at what I do,
I know I can always do better.
