Here's the letter included with my shipped coffees (all boxed, labeled and
postaged for tomorrow)  (letter minus graphics I used of course:-(
"World Tour Coffee Club"
-graphic of world growing regions/countries here-
One of the best ways to enjoy a variety of the finest and rarest coffees of
the world is to join a coffee club. Or better yet, roast your own! I've
combined the two concepts and Debi & I enrolled you in my (just made up)
World Tour Coffee Club.  Every few months or so (whenever I get around to
it;-) our Roast Master (that's me) will select an Estate or other specially
selected coffees from different coffee growing regions from around the
World.
Our World Tour Coffee Club is a celebration of the special connection
between a coffee and the land where it was grown. Wake up to the bright
scent of beans from the ranges of Africa; travel to the Americas to savor
the delicate and lively flavors that abound; and then sit down after dinner
in Indonesia and enjoy the full-bodied intense taste of Sumatra or elegant
Sulawesi.
This month I've chosen to start you off with a custom blend I originally
blended for a friend. It's a variation of one of the oldest, if not the
oldest, coffee blends known to man. Mokha-Java. I start traditionally with
Vienna roasted Yemem Mokha Sana'ani-Haimi and Full City roasted Sulawesi
Toraja. Then add the bright chocolaty flavor of City roasted Panama Volcan
Baru Finca Hartmann followed by the fruity tones of Light Full City roasted
Guatemalan Huehuetenango Finca El Injerto. (pronounced way-way not
hue-hue;-) I hope you enjoy it too!
Your second introductory selection speaks for itself!
To continue your World Tour Coffee Club membership simply do nothing. Send
no money now or ever. Cancel at any time. (We'll grind and brew it
ourselves;-) We select the members of our coffee club. No one can join! (If
your shipments don't arrive as often as you'd like I'll promptly refund your
non-payment;-)

And now to relax for a few before bed. Catch up on the list later:-)

Mike,
Neat sounding letter!  And a _very_ neat and exclusive club to go
along with it!
If anyone ever complains even a little bit or, for that matter, fails
to thank you profusely, you should probably have a backup member to
replace him/her with.  I'd be glad to volunteer.  ;>)
Seriously, though:  I hope the recipients of said "World Tour Coffee
Club" are appropriately grateful.  Many of them are probably in for a
life-altering experience.
Mark

Mark,
	Don't get sucked in by all this niceness - Mike is getting ready to go into
the coffee business and when he has hooked enough people he will publish a
price list and directions for ordering.  I'm betting if you took time to
investigate you would find that he shopped for a small commercial building
on his last trip over to the Islands :O)

Not that far from the truth. "Retiring" to Kona and a Kona farm is under
consideration and investigation...

Mike,
I like it!  However my questions to you are, "Are you doing this because you
want to share the joys of the home roast?  Are you doing this to justify the
large stash? or Are you doing this to reduce the stash? :>)  I just finished
a 6 hour roast marathon!  I set a record of a 24 oz roast all at the same
time!  No, not in one roaster.  I had a pound and a half going at the same
time in 5 of my popcorn poppers.  It is a good thing that they profile a
little different so I could have about 20-30 sec. between each one to begin
the cooling process.  A pound and a half cooling in a colander takes a lot
longer than I thought!  The gift roasting is all done except for one person
who gets Kona, and I will have theirs roasted on the weekend.

That would have been a sight to watch. Roasting in and monitoring 5 poppers
at once... 50 CSA points for that!
