4) From: Byron - Sweet Maria's Coffee
**Hello everyone,
Happy Rash Wednesday. We’re breaking out big time with *six* awesome new
additions! Today’s additions include some new faces along with some famil=
iar
favorites. First up is *Costa Rica La Legua Bourbon* a classic bourbon with
malty sweetness and dense, creamy body. *Nicaragua Mozonte -Un Regalo de
Dios* is similar to a lot we had last year with cinnamon stick spice, hints
of wildflower, and herbal tea notes. *Ethiopia Yirga Cheffe Dumerso
Cooperative * is a Yirg with a bit of a different flavor profile: winey
fruit notes, tenor tone and a big, tangy finish. *Kenya Nyeri
Kagumo-ini *is a “fruit salad” cup with light brown sugar caramelized
notes and a rindy
finish. *Espresso Workshop #18 – Hypno-Tiki * will put a spell on you with
bracing brightness, pink grapefruit, and jammy berry notes along with
chocolate from start to finish. And last, but definitely not least, *Ethiop=
ia
Yirga Cheffe-Shakiso SWP Decaf* is another of our special decaf lots that
was created by sending off two of our best Ethiopian lots for
decaffeination, the result is a balanced cup with honey and caramel
sweetness and a whiff of graham cracker. Hope you don’t mind this rash of
new offerings! Click the links below or
herefor a summary of them
all.

Why does this always seem to happend right after I've ordered? Just
got 28 or so pounds delivered by UPS today.  Oh well, next time
around.
The hottop's purring through a batch of Ethiopean Harar Longberry as I type.

7) From: Seth Grandeau
SweetMarias, you should offer a "subscription" service.  Every month, send
out 1 lb of each new coffee (maybe by region or coffees below a certain
price, so we don't get surprised by a lb of $200 Gesha.  Then I can tell my
wife, "no, honey, I didn't order this, it's that damn subscription service.
Now help me move this to my stash."

8) From: Byron - Sweet Maria's Coffee
Hi Seth,
That's a good idea. We are always thinking of ways to keep everyone's
stashes current. Our roasted coffee subscription has been working out pretty
good so hopefully we can implement something similar with our green coffee.
Thanks for the suggestion.

9) From: Brad Byford
Byron or Tom, or Maria?
I was on SM's site to restock my Liquid Amber, and noticed it's not there.
Is it coming back? If not, can you direct me to a similar single origin or
blend that can fill my Liquid Amber void? I use it as a daily cup in my drip
coffee maker. It's phenomenal at FC to FC+ and 3 days rest. I'll be
searching and comparing notes trying to come up with a match, but I thought
you might be able to come up with something easier than I could, as you're
probably more familiar with the characters of the blends you guys come up
with. Thanks for your time:)

That *does* sound interesting, especially if you set it up so we can 
give some preferences.  For example, I'm not big on Kenyans or Konas 
but I love Sumatrans.
Enjoy!

11) From: Byron - Sweet Maria's Coffee
Hi Brad,
Unfortunately, we aren't sure when the Liquid Amber will return, but there
are great options to choose from that will hopefully be equally as good (or
possibly better).
-As far as blends go, our new
Hypno-Tikiblend
has a long aftertaste and is very well balanced. You may find it a
little sweeter than the Liquid Amber.
-If you are a looking for a single origin that has Liquid Amber-ish
qualities, the Sumatra Dry Hulled Aceh
Bukitcomes
pretty close.
This could be a good time to experiment with new coffees and possibly
discover a new favorite. We hope you find a coffee you like.
-Byron

12) From: Demian Ebert
It could be a fun way to keep a continuous trickle of new coffee coming in.
I only order a few times a year and don't think about the next order until
the collection gets down to a few pounds (or I run out of Monkey blend,
whichever happens first). A new greens subscription would pop a few extra
varieties in the mix and maybe even intice the extra order.

Whew! What a wild week. Somewhere between unloading a few truckloads of
coffee bags, a 40' container of drippers and the usual holiday insanity, we
managed to find time to add 3 really delicious coffees. Enjoy.
Java Sunda Pitaloka:
with nutty tones, cherries and cocoa.
Brazil Mogiana WP
Decaf:
a surprisingly sweet cup with apricot and peach notes.
Kenya Nyeri Gaturiri

an intense, heavily fruited cup.
Please have a wonderful and safe holiday season.

Hi Byron,
 
We got 20# Ethiopia BSC a few weeks ago. We roasted as you suggest. Fist 2  
roasts were merely OK. Lately (2-3 roasts ) have been terrible ! Obviously 
some  body had a bad day.
 
What is  your policy on replacement ? We have bought Kenyans and  Ethios 
from you for several years now -  usually 20#.. Sending this back  to you will 
be expensive.
 
Can we select another coffee for you to send ?
 
Thanks.

Hi Byron,
 
I always get Kenyans and Ethios from you, usually 20# bags . For many years 
 now  . Just got 20# of Ethio  BSC  and all roasts  are  terrible ! For the 
first time! Someone really dropped a clanger on this  one.
 
I trust  you have policy of replacement  . Can  we  select the new coffee 
and pay any price difference ?
