Just a thanks to all who have posted how great the Panama Boquete-Finca La 
Berlina ' 02    is. I had been totally ignoring all of you.....just minding 
my own business.....I have tons of coffee....more than I can possibly roast 
and drink in a reasonable time. 
I kept ignoring all the posts except, somehow, now I too will have 5# of 
Berlina on the way to Florida the first part of next week.
Anyone going to be in the Clearwater area let me know and I will be glad to 
roast up a few batches of whatever to share and enjoy.
I don't know if it's a soft touch or a soft head?

I read your protests and snickered as I saw them collapse. I was just 
wondering if you have found that part time job yet. If you get a job you may 
have less time to read the list (which has been unbelievably active lately) 
and save some money by avoiding the temptations. I work full time and it 
hasn't worked for me, but maybe.......
 I have my new St. Helena but must to finish off more of what I have roasted 
before I can try it. Working on close to the last of my Kawali Blue Mountain 
and am convinced it is my all time favorite. Maybe tomorrow or Sunday Helena 
will meet the roaster.

You gotta give your UPS guy a "coffee to go" to keep him outta trouble.
I have a similar relationship to yours with my UPS person.  He's always
honked and loves talking with me about my Sweet Maria's orders.  I've
given him ice water, cokes, etc on these hot days to take with him
(usually just fill his Mega-cup).  We normally have a couple minutes to
chit-chat, but then he's got to be on his way.  A really nice guy.
