Topic: New Kenyas? (3 msgs / 56 lines)
1) From: steve_w
I just roasted my last batch of Kenya Top and am thinking about placing
a new order and was wondering if any new Kenyas were coming soon.
The website says new crop Kenyas should arrive in March or April and
April is just around the corner so should I make my move or wait
a few days for something new?

The first 2 lots  are on the water... and due in early to mid  April. 
It's been really interesting cupping all the auctin lots as the 
season goes by. The last cupping of 11 lots last Friday was really 
mediocre.  And in fact some Auction Kenyas did arrive in Oakland last 
week from the very first Auction of the year, but we didnt bid on 
anything from that table - pretty unremarkable stuff. The tables that 
have been really good were about 4 weeks and 5 weeks ago. Those were 
the ones where 1 lot from each jumped out (not just to me but to 
everyone at the cupping), and both times we bought the whole lot (to 
the chagrin of a couple people there !). Anyway, the nice thing is 
that if the lots dont arrive as remarkable as they were at the 
cupping, we can opt out. So this year I have am able to cup 
exponentially more Kenyas, get the really exceptional ones, but still 
be protected in case they dont arrive right. It's one of the things 
about  being in CA that I am really appreciating...
