Topic: Tom's great info and quality... and you folks (3 msgs / 75 lines)
1) From: Simpson
Tom, your impeccable quality and wealth of detail make buying from you a
joy. Plus I love this list, though I post seldom anymore... The other day
someone spoke highly of your current harrar and within the hour I had
bought some. I don't even have to wonder if it will be good, just if I can
roast it well.
BTW I'd love to credit the individual who spoke so glowingly about the
harrar but I can't find the post. Perhaps I'm reading voices!?
Consider yourself thanked, ok?
Ted

Ted, you wrote:

"Bubba-Bob" on alt.coffee a few days back said it 
was exceptionally clean, and mentioned the dark 
honey and apricot in the review. That was in reply 
to my mentioning that Ken had once described a 
Harrar as tasting of "well-hung pheasant." 
Obviously a UK Harrar ;)

Thanks, Jim. Nice to get it straight. OTOH, while I'm not reading voices, I
do appear to be experiencing an increasing number of senior moments. Oh
joy.
But how could I not stock up on some more harrar after your post (an
excerpt):
"The origin flavor, predominant in lighter roasts, is blueberry, liquor
like aromatics, and occasionally a funkiness once memorably described
as "well hung pheasant." Roast flavors, predominant at darker roasts,
is dry chocolate and leather. (Jim )"
and BubbaBob's response:
"Have you had any of Sweet Maria's latest Harrar? Absolutely no 
pheasant. It's been replaced by what Tom accurately describes as 
'dark honey'. The blueberries are still there but with a touch of 
dried apricot. This is the best Harrar I've ever had.(B-Bob) "
I may be dementing but I'm not stupid. I can't wait to get this in my
hands. 
See Tom ship? Ship, Tom! Ship!
Yeehah
Ted
