Topic: Tom: How about a recent changes link on the web site? (4 msgs / 99 lines)

Tom et al-
I find myself going to SweetMarias quite a bit but am often frustrated
trying to figure out what has changed at the site. I know you sometimes list
stuff on the front page but it doesn't seem like this accounts for all the
changes and/or new additions. or does it?

It does more or less. ... I mean, the frustrating Solis Mill situation
(Mulino Mill now delayed until Dec 1) doesnt really affect everyone, nor
does everyone want to see all my pictures of the Coffee Kinetics 1 lb
roaster ...But I see the point that if I had a sort of "update log" then
people could decide for themselves what they want to pay attention too. But
alas its another thing for me to do and I am downright frazzled. I will
mull it over ...
I am really working on this new "Coffee Profiling" page that will attempt
to map some of the coffee flavors that seem most important in  determining
preference. It will hopefully be a good visual tool to help people avoid
the crisis of buying a coffee far outside their preferred flavors. We take
it for granted after a while, but those of us who have roasted a long time
KNOW that Ethiopian doesnt mean one uniform cup character (DP vs. wet
processed Eth.s) nor would we say " I dislike African coffees" or "I
dislike bitter coffees" ...these things are misleading or mean next to
nothing. But there needs to be a way to visually map out the origins in
terms of flavor along a continuum. This page will simpy have arrows for
each important quality like "Earthy------------->Clean" or
"Bright/Acidy------------------->Low Acidity" etc. and place some of the
key coffee origins along this axis. I think it will be very useful!

Tom,
Understanding there's only so much of you to go around, I'm very content
with what you are providing.  Easy web-site navigation is certainly more
pleasing to any user, but the quality of your products/service behind that
site is far more important to me.  I also enjoy the fact that you find time
to interact with your customers in this forum.  That's a personal touch that
is oh so rare these days.
Coffenut  :^)
