Topic: St. Helena greens (9 msgs / 146 lines)
1) From: Mike McGinness
Anyone been on the ISH site lately? Current direct order price per pound has
risen to $32.50 (inc. shipping.) The order I placed Dec 01 was $25#, a
couple months later up to $27.50. We're seeing the effects of all David's
trials & tribulations getting this fine coffee to market...

As I read, I could hear "memories" playing in the background. My last
(operative word) order was also for $25.  So I guess my "great" cups
will take on a Hawaiian tone again.  I hate to see it - but then - I
know David hates it even more.

Gee, at those prices we should organize a list trip to help with the
harvest, guard and oversee the shipment.  As payment we would each receive
our own bag of ISH! :)
Scott- ready to pack! :)

OK, I'm game, but I'll also be bringing my 12ga.!  From what Dave has
written, it is a requirement. Keep in mind that there is NO airport on the
island, and we'll have to fly to England to board the mail packet, pick the
beans and then wait for the next mail boat. Which may be a good thing, we
can guard the shipment on the return trip.  Dan

Having just seen my daughter off to France, I believe the price increase has
to do with the exhange rate!  It is just Esther's luck that the Euro is
trading at an all time high!

Well with an adventure like that at least we could sell the rights to
Hollywood when we get back! :) Probably get National Geographic to fund the
trip too.  I forgot they don't have an airport there, I'd better take lots
of Dramamine! :)

7) From: Dan Bollinger
Good idea.  Also, why not a coffee organization to fund it (might be a
conflict of interest).  Why not Starbucks?  I'm not kidding. It would be
great publicity for them plus a write-off.  Dan

 Think of the wonderfull publicity for Sweet Marias if Tom were
to sponser a trip of homeroast fanatics devoted enough to do
something this crazy. I say we jump in John C.'s sailboat and
make a real adventure out of it-come on! Personally I'd want to
get a sack of viable seeds from St.Helena before that uniquely
wonderfull variety is lost. Spread it around. The next homeroast
adventure could be the trips to the nicest coffee growing areas
planting future "god shots" wherever we go. ;o)

What a great idea! Then these images come to mind of I'm not sure which:
Robinson Crusoe or Gilligan's Island. But then, chances are we'd be stranded
on a volcanic island, we'd have St. Helena seed stock to plant, no
