Any new Kenya's coming up?
I have a question on your policies..... When you say "Limit 1 or 5 pounds." Do you intend that to be a limit per user/address? or per order? If I've ordered 5 pounds of something and I'm back on your site and you still have it in stock..... any issue with ordering more of it?

Hello everyone. Here's four new coffees we just added.
Ethiopia FTO Dry Process Worka
Sakarois
what fans of naturals have been waiting for, this lot is so heavily
fruited that our entire warehouse smells like ripe coffee cherry just from
the aroma of the green beans; expect strawberry, mango and milky body in
the cup, works well across the roast spectrum. Guatemala Antigua Finca
Cabrejohas
a profound sweetness that intensifies as it cools, berry and malic
notes round out one of our top Central arrivals of the year. Guatemala
Antigua Retana Red
Bourbonis
a clean, well-structured cup with a bright acidic snap, great at all
roast levels and as SO espresso. Guatemala Finca La
Florenciais
a very juicy cup with tea-like acidity and a nice balance between
bittersweet and sweet. Happy Fourth of July everyone, be safe.

I need to order no later than a week from today (July 10). Is there a
chance of any additional Ethiopians being listed between now and then?

We may list some other washed lots, but I am not sure about any more
naturals by the date you've set. Containers are on the water, and we do our
best to list things promptly.

Thanks, Josh. I just wanted to be sure there wasn't something really
good that was going to be listed the day after I placed my order! (I'm
in a 0ne-coffee-drinker household, and limit myself to one cup per
day, so I order only twice a year, and I miss a LOT of really
tasty-sounding coffees!)

Wow, I wish I could restrict myself to that amount, usually do a full  
Technivorm thermos a day, but some days I might double that.
Happy 4th of July and I roasted three batches today and now I have to be  
patient and let them rest.

For me, it's usually a cup or two of drip and the equivalent of a double ristretto or triple cappuccino a day. But since getting my knee replaced, I had only decaf for the three days I was in-hospital and had to fight for my right to coffee in the rehab center: on two occasions the nurses poured me a cup from their supply until the kitchen finally made me a cup a day of the real stuff at breakfast, plus whatever my visitors could bring me from Starbucks.  First thing I do when I get home tomorrow is fire up my machine (after cranking the A/C) and pull myself an iced skim latte.  (It's 102 here right now, forecasting 104 tomorrow. That's air temp, not heat index). Meanwhile, I'm settling for a smuggled-in chocolate truffle and the nice cold Polarcare cuff swaddling my knee.  Tomorrow, one more session each of P.T. & O.T., zip up my bags, and I'm outta here.
