Topic: The ship has docked! (12 msgs / 348 lines)
1) From: Mike McGinness
Four months 29 days from order/payment and the re-shipment finally made it!
4# of the no longer lost St. Helena. Good things come to those who wait, and
take a chance...
Will I order direct from St. Helena again? Probably... unless Tom manages to
carry it. There are a lot of great coffees out there but nothing quite like
St. Helena, IMO. Possibly the ultimate coffee for dessert or special
occasion...

So we can all share your good fortune, you are sending out single brew 
samples to everyone on the list when?  :-) (ducking and running)

No problem, just send me a SASE and I'll get right to it. BTW, St. Helena
ships slow so you'll probably see it around November...

Mike,
How about a taste test report when you get around to it?  Maybe that will
provide some comfort and hope to those of us who still wait :o)

It's grassy tasting - and has picked up a tinge of diesel fuel - probably
from the leak hull of the ship.  OK OK I'm just being sour grapes here!
There are a bunch of us who didn't even get in the queue

Your in TX, behave!  Remember, TX is the FRIENDSHIP state.......

9) From: John - In Deep Southern Texas
Tonya,
    I am so ashamed!  I let my covetousness overcome me. Then I had to lie
about the condition of the beans. That's two commandments shattered in one
act, not even getting into the friendship issues.  I try had to love Mike
and the rest of the list, but they have cost me a fortune trying to keep a
step ahead with the coffee paraphernalia and my pride is taking a beating -
Opps there goes another shattered commandment.  I beginning to think that a
couple of these guys are actually laundering drug money and...oh another?
Well you see this isn't going to work. I guess I'll just go make a Cafe
Crema and plot,.. I mean figure out how I can get some of that good stuff -
beans I mean.

I believe Les has already done a St Helena taste test. He's the first I knew
of to get his greens. I don't know if he roasted some of all 4 in one
session or not. I don't think I'm going to. It'd use up too much of a
limited hard to get 'stash'! Even reducing my usual 1/3# batch to 1/4#
batches would use up 25% of it. No cup to cup this time... sorry.

Interesting.   UPS probably knows what you are shipping and removes a 
little at each stop just because they can't resist such great coffee.  It;s 
a pity it is most likely robusta by the time it reaches you    Really, 
enjoy!!

OOPS.  Just for clarity, Penelope did not send the above post.  I did.  I 
forgot to add my auto sig line.  Sorry about the mix up.
BTW, if it wasn't 110% clear, it was a joking post originally.
