Hey all
I now hold the tradition since I'm going to be building a drum roaster 
with the drum that John is going to build for me (Yeah John).  So, the 
person who emails me off-line and is the closest to 12:30 (noon est) on 
the May 6, will get to claim one of the the following;
A hand cranked travel coffee grinder (used once, got it from Cabella's) 
Rocky arrived, and zass travels now.
An unmodified Poppery II (no plastic top - wasn't with it)
A small travel hot pot, with thermometer installed ( cal'ed and ready to 
tell you 198 or 200, etc) (Bodum took its spot)
A Britta water picture.

I see the list (and/or various other mail Servers) is in a *time warp*
again. Your send 6:47am didn't arrive 'till 11:08am. Even accounting
East/West time difference a pretty good lag...
No biggy just commenting, I've replied to too many tradition offerings.

I would love to get in on this.  However, as you can see by the message
headers below... I didn't receive the offer until *after* the time had
expired.  Oh well...

The SM server was down (or maybe just a bit depressed) and the post 
didn't hpeen till just before the time posted. So I'm moving the 
traditions offer to 12:30 (noon est) on May 8th. The intention was to 
try to let everybody know hours before.
Therefore,

It's my turn in the Tradition, since I received a lovely espresso cup &
saucer from Ginny.
I have 2 Choices for offer:
1 - A milk frother (looks kinda like a French Press) which can be seen
at this link:http://members.rogers.com/m.machado/frother.jpgor 
2 - 1lb of Cuban Turquino green beans, which I know are not available to
our US friends and some might be interested in trying it out.
So the 5th person to reply to me off list gets the item of their choice!
Cheers & Good luck
Manny

7) From: Manny
Well looks like Oaxaca Charlie claims the 1lb of Cuban beans!
Thanks and enjoy!
Cheers

 I'm so lucky. Two traditions that I tried for, and I got them
both. Just a month ago I got a vac pot from Paul Jolly. Now some
Cubano to brew in it.
 All I have to offer is (suprise!) some Oaxacan Pluma. Organic,
shade grown high elevation direct purchased at fair price etc...
 4th person to email me off list gets 2lbs of those greens. Or,
1 lb Pluma and 1 lb. Sumatra Gayoland, as you like. Long live
the Tradition!  Gracias, Manny.

I would like very much to try the Oaxacan Pluma. Organic, but I don't have
your off line address and it doesn't come up on your message. Please???

 We have a winner. The first 3 emails came in right away, then a
couple of repeat requests, now, many hours later, finally, an
honest "4th person to post"--Ron Kyle gets a lb of my Pluma and
one of organic Sumatran. Viva la Tradition!

Well Thats great, I didn't think I had a chance I got home and read the
post, but was a couple of hours old. I got lucky. That was a really generous
offering Charlie.
Thanks
Now I will have to come up with something good, as a matter of fact, 2 good
things, a little while back, I got a one cup swiss gold from Scott Jensen,
that I havn't gotten around to posting an offering for.
So I will post several things and have two winners.

Yes Mike I have tried some of Charlies Pluma, and reallly like the Chocolat
notes as it cools. In the drum I roast it 30 sec into 2nd crack and dump.
This is the sweet spot for my tastes. I have tried it lighter and didn't
like it as well, It is also good at French, but I prefere it at full city +
I brew for drip, press pot , and Americano's

All right, I am ready to get into the fray.  I 
don't have any spare hardware at the moment, but I will offer a pound of 
either Moka Kadir or Liquid Amber, your choice, roasted or green, also your 
choice.
 
Why don't we say the first mail to reach me offlist 
at m.guterman after 5PM 
eastern time on Sunday 3 August.  I'll use the timestamp to check the 
winner.  No clock resetting, now!!
 
I like this sharing idea.

So I really thought my mailbox was going to be 
overflowing.  No mail.  I'm not hurt, because I did offer the choice 
of green or roasted, so it can't be fear of my roasts (perhaps justified), but 
Tom should be a trifle saddened that nobody wants any of his fine blends.  
Just kidding, but a bit mystified.

I didn't get any responses yet to my traditions offer either - maybe 
there just isn't the pent-up demand for traditions that we thought...  
(or it could just be that it's a beautiful Sunday and "normal" people 
are doing things other than checking email ;)

That could be.  I'll check later.  Maybe 
my mail is screwy, but I did get this, and the one I just sent.  Nice to 
see my own posts, again.  I couldn't figure out why I never saw my 
posts.  I finally did some exploring and found out that I had somehow put 
myself on my blocked senders list.

Well gin, I think it's great to have you back. It 
seemed there was no one to pick on while you were in CA so things were quite 
quiet.
 
And speaking of roasting, I roasted some Panama 
Auction Lot - Elida Friday evening and it is very tasty. Lots of flavor. 
Excellent coffee. But I am holding my next order until the El Salvador comes in. 
Then I will probably add to my overstocks once again.

Thanks Terry:
 
I promise not to use the "s" word for at least a 
week.
 
I am going to do my short gr roasts this evening, 
like maybe 125/150 gr in the old HT so I will let you know. Had to take off and 
never took the time before I left.
 
I am actually leaving again in the morning but I am 
taking my HT and a stash of greens. We will see if the altitude from sea level 
to 4200 here make a difference.

25) From: Zara Haimo
As I remember, it started a year or so ago when someone (Kona Mike?) offered
something he didn't need to someone on the list on the condition that the
taker offer something to the list in return, and that started the tradition.
The initial exchanges had the recipient paying postage, but that quickly
shifted to the sender picking up the cost.  The method for picking the
winner has varied too, but I like the name in the hat trick, since the
server has been so weird about holding some messages for hours and some
people get the list as a digest and only see postings once a day.  The
offerings have ranged from beans to cups to coffee makers to some non coffee
items such as spices and chocolate.  I've gotten some fantastic homeroasted
beans and a $20 SM gift certificate and sent out a Russian tea glass and
holder (great for coffee too) and some Scharffenberger cacao nibs.

26) From: gin
Zara:
thanks for the info and I agree with the server issue hence the hat trick.
Maybe it was Jim who was doing the hat trick a few weeks ago?

27) From: Zara Haimo
<Snip>
I started the hat trick back in April when I was making an offering from
Russia and wasn't able to check my mail immediately.  When I got back
online, I took all the replies, had my son put the names in his hat, and he
picked out the winner of the Russian tea glass and holder (Mike Gallant).

28) From: gin
ahhh Zara but you did not call it the "hat trick",
that's mine...

If memory serves (and it may not), the original offering was an ibrik
by JG.

30) From: jim gundlach
Someone else did the hat trick, maybe Zara,  and I thought it worked 
well since I won, so I used a random number generator version to offer 
an ibrik.   I set something like a three day deadline to get the e-mail 
in off list and I put all the entrants into data set and randomly 
selected a sample with an N of one.
The way the traditions started was someone offered of new gasket for an 
old vacuum pot for anyone willing to pay the postage.  I got it at 
about the time I had just unsuccessfully  tried to improve the grind of 
my old Solis grinder by replacing the upper burr.  When the grinder 
continued to produce dust, I decided to offer the new burr to the list 
under the conditions that are now the tradition.  Mike McKona won the 
Solis burr and things have continued since then.
I decided not to try for Gin's or Michael's traditions offering because 
I had won one recently.

No, you haven't missed my offering because I haven't offered anything just
yet.  Please remember, I only started home roasting and enjoying good coffee
a couple months ago.  I don't have a surplus of extra coffee goodies to give
away yet.  However, when I do offer up something... and I will soon (I have
something in mind)... it will be something spectacular.  I promise.

You can always offer up a half pound of your finest homeroast.  That would
also allow other list members a comparison of what others are doing with

while. Nice offering though and I'm sure someone will take you up on it. The

Well it's not much, but I have a simple tradition.  I ordered 2 lbs of 
Maragogype from SM this week and they accidentally packaged up 2 lbs. of 
Colombian Narino San Lorenzo '03 by mistake.  Maria of course said they 
would make it right so I have no worries.  Well I'm not a huge fan of 
Colombians, but I am going to take advantage of trying a pound of it. 
 That leaves one pound of goof to share with someone else.  If you are 
interested in trying it with me send me your name off list and I will 
put you into the hat.  I will pull a name next Friday (19th) after work.

42) From: Brian Hyde
Sorry everyone for being such a slow poke about this tradition, but I 
didn't forget.  I know I said that I would do the drawing Friday after 
work, but I have been out of town and without my laptop.  
Anyway, I drew a name.  No one sent me a name after the time limit so 
there was the no problem.  My girlfriend did the random number pick and 
the winner is Don Rankin.  
Don send me your information off list and I will have it out to you 
Monday after the holiday.  I will be out of town until then.  Again...
Merry Christmas everyone.
