Randy what you had is most likely old crop vs. new crop from SM  I have =
some of the older crop, but find it to be good, I can't wait to get the =
SM order, and try the new crop.

Last month I bought some PRYS for the first time from another coffee =
vendor because Tom was out of it at the time.  I was never able to get a =
decent taste from it.  I tried city, full city and even full city+.  
Last week I ordered 2 lbs. from Tom.  It arrived today, and it doesn't =
even closely resemble the previous "not Tom vendor" purchase.  Tom's =
beans are a much darker shade of green.  The other beans look pale in =
comparison - almost yellow and somewhat smaller in size.  I'm now =
wondering if the first purchase was really Yauco?
Anyway, I can't wait to roast up the new stuff and compare the taste.

it sounds, for the most part, like the difference between new crop and past
crop.

Y'all got me interested in the Yauco Selecto, but I'm not sure how to 
afford it.  Tom's pricing at http://www.sweetmarias.com/coffee.islands.PR.htmldoesn't look quite right.
$10.40 for the 1st pound
add one pound for $19.76
and add one more for $48.36.
I usually buy 5 pounds of whatever interests me, but I'm afraid to ask how 
much 5 pounds are, when the price for each additional pound increases so 
dramatically!  At a 1x, 2x, 5x incremental pricing, I'm guessing the 
mathematical progression is 3 times b minus a, where b is the previous 
price and a is the one before that.  This would make the 4th pound an 
incremental $130, and the 5th pound an incremental $340.  So, five 
pounds would be $340+130+50+20+10=$560.  A little too expensive for my 
blood.  I'm saving that for the Hottop, whenever it shows up.
Kind of reminds me of the old joke about the $100 espresso.  "Guess you 
don't sell many of those."  "No, but if I sell one, it really makes my day."

11) From: Terry Stockdale
Yes, I was joking.  The detailed review page for the Yauca Selecto has 
three "add 1 lb" buttons, instead of an "add 1 lb", an "add 2 lbs" and an 
"add 3 lbs" button.  It hit my funny bone just right (or wrong, depending 
on your viewpoint).

Terry,
    The $48.36 is for five pounds.  Tom sells in one, two, five, and 
twenty pound bags.

Yep, I know that.  Look at the review page -- if Tom hasn't already fixed 
it.  And, next time, I'll try to put a :) or a , just in case.
Now, for the important questions -- can we claim Tom and/or Maria as 
dependents on our tax returns?  Alternatively, is good coffee a medical 
expense, since we'd get sick without it?   (see, I remembered, this time)

No, we can't!   Tom & Maria depend on US to buy their good stuff.
Let's continue to support them!

You think that is funny!  There is a Reg Barber 58mm Titanium Tamper bid up
to $200.00 on E-Bay!  The metal work is nice, but it has a plain Jane hunk
of Cocabolo for a handle, and is not well sanded or finished.  My Thor
tampers are looking cheap in comparison!

the day I get *my* Silvia.
