John! Either you've gone off the deep end dollar wise or slightly misspoke. Blue Sky Kona wants $28
per pound for their Peaberry Greens. (plus shipping:-) Did you order some! I suspect either you must
have meant the BSK that you'd pay $16# online (but didn't:-) or Peaberry from Koa Kona or Kona
Mountain Kona I sent you...

Blue Sky Peaberry - ordered from Blue Sky's web site while you were romping
around the island.  Its good! I haven't roasted any of the peaberry that you
sent yet, knowing that they are going to be killer - I'm holding them back
for the holidays ahead.

I tip my cup to you! 'Bout the only green I'll pay that price for is St.
Helena. (won't mention Louie Luwak...:-) I passed on their Peaberry offering
at what I considered an inflated price. 'Settled' for Peaberry from the
cupping winner and a finalist. But now there's the Kona Krazy part of me
that is just dying to know how it compares...

These beans although very good, don't match up to the taste or the cause of
the ISH.  I had been talking up Kona knowing you were going to be there and
sharing :O)  My oldest sister bought 3 pounds - and I roasted 2 of them for
her.  It was a very convoluted thank you for something I had done.  I
wouldn't order beans that expensive from anywhere this close to Christmas -
my budget is going to get KILLED!! all too soon.    I'll give you a
comparison on Christmas Week-end when I drink the Peaberry that came from
Kona McCoffee
