Here are some ideas I've had about correctly
compensating for a variety of coffee beans:
I gave a buddy of mine (who doesn't roast, but
runs an organic food dist. co.) a half-pound of a
Columbian/Sumatran blend. He compensated me
with a CASE of tomatoes!
Another friend was given some Moka Java. He
compensated me with an OS upgrade.
Speaking of Moka Java, I recall the first time I
roasted a straight Java, I thought it lacked
brightness. Sure enough, a 50-50 mix with Yemen
compensated for that.
Financially speaking, while Tom's prices are a
bit higher than most, I've always felt that it
was fair compensation for the quality he assures.
And on the subject of "higher", when we had too
much coffee in college we used to compensate for
that with a joint shared among four of us. Bonus
compensation there: we usually wound up in the
ocean instead of class! These days, a good bike
ride compensates for the caffeine-induced shakes.
When all is said and done, Kodak can say what
they will, but I know that I've got at least 18%
of MY gray matter left. And I'm going to feed it
some coffee right now. Are we back on topic yet?
OT? Guilty, guilty, guilty! %^)
