Mike,
I hope you and Debi are having a blast.  The only think I can think of to
make you a bit jealous is that I am enjoying a very find ISH Napoleon Estate
Americano this morning as I write.  I am hoping to score on a fine elk next
week in the Cascades.  I could bring a 4 lb backstrap up and we could
Traeger it and enjoy some fine coffee.  However, first I must find the
elusive elk!  I sure wish I had a better Thermos as it has been very cold,
maybe I will have to brew in the woods!

Morning Les,
I've been up for an hour but Debi is still snozin'. You got me on two counts! I can't make an
Americano and I roasted and brought only ISH CG Estate, no Napoleon. Sipping my second Press cup of
Puerto Rican Yauco Selecto this morning. Will make a Press pot of Aussie when Debi wakes up. They
off to play with fire (down to the current lava flows) stopping on the way for breakfast at The
Coffee Shack Cafe. It's about 15min south of our resort condo.
Is backstrap cut anything like brisket? Slow 12hr smoked Elk would be a great experience! If it's a
tender cut then shorten the time... Enjoy your hunting trip as I'm sure you will. I've never been
into hunting but have no qualms enjoying the fruits of others labor!
I've been really impressed with the grind quality of this Zass Turkish Mill. Glad I didn't pre-grind
and vac pack like I did for last years trip to Kona. It's a bit of work but hey, not in any rush
over here! Besides, grinding for this mornings first Press I was done grinding before the stove had
the water up to temp'. Way cool sitting on the lanai grinding coffee watching the sun rise over the
moutain then turn my head looking west through a giant Palm with leaves overhanging the lanai and
watch the Pacific catch the glint of the day's new sun. Did I say we love it over here!
Have a great week and a great hunt!
Your friend in coffee & life,
Mike

Oops, pay attention to the header Mike! I meant to reply off-list to Les. But then, I did talk about
coffee and the Zass' Turkish grinder Tom sells so it wasn't strictly off topic!
MM;-)
Grinding some Australian Skybury in said Zass' for our morning second Press pot before heading for
the active Volcano...

Mike,
The backstrap is "boneless Prime Rib!"  Melt in your mouth and the best cut.
I debone all of my game.  I think the wild taste is in the bone.  Hope you
have a wonderful day, and I and the rest of the group are looking forward to
hearing your summery report of the Kona Festival.
Les
