I hesitate to do this because the last time I did this it was La Berlina
and when I went to reorder Tom was OUT!
It's common knowledge that I love Central American coffee. I have tried
in the past to corner the market on CRLM and Guat Hueheu.  I've just
reconfirmed my preference!  I am enjoying an absolutely incredible cup
of Jose Salaverria, Itzalco "El Salvedor 100% Bourbon" 
1) Frangrance is good, about what I'd expect of a Costa Rican. But the
flavor - the DEPTH of flavor is a 9 or 10.  The after taste is so smooth
and so satisfying that it almost moves into a wine quality. 
2) It turns out that this is one of the least expensive beans Tom &
Maria carry  $4.40 a pound in singles and $3.38 in bulk.
3) It stands up to a light roast or a dark roast. The full city makes a
respectable espresso.. but its strength is in a brewed cup.  We were so
impressed with the Americano it produced this morning that we brewed a
Cona full of it and shared with friends - who raved about the cup!
So go put your order in - Mine is already in :O)

John,
You're killing me! My "shopping list" for my next coffee order keeps getting longer and longer and longer... maybe I'd better hurry up and order before I need to take out a 2nd mortgage.

Instead of the links that nobody seems to read at the bottom of the
posts, Tom should post a warning label.
Caution: continued reading of this list can be detrimental to your
budget.  
But then I'm not sure that would have deterred me from my ordering
frenzies.

Yeah.. but then Tom is gonna need a disclaimer on his cupping reviews 
too .. Not to mention the what's new section ....
About time I ordered again ..

Mike,
     You forgot that natural dehydration of your stash has probably 
taken at least two more pounds off.

The problem may be solved, but I'm not so sure about the sanity question. (I, on the other hand, make no claim to sanity. :-)

Just do it Mike.:O)

12) From: javafool
1) No! Coffee that has not arrived never counts.
2) No again? I detect absolutely no illusion of sanity whatsoever. What
would lead a sane person to post or respond to a post like the one below?

My KBM & Antigua -La Flor del Café should arrive Monday.

snip from Mike's post on sanity:
 I mean, if I ordered now, before Big Brown
<Snip>
---------------------------------------------------------
Going over will not matter Mike, if you go over 200 lbs. you can send me the
overage and this will restore you to the sanity level:O) GO AHEAD AND ORDER

It seems that if some of your coffee is over two years old it's probably
past it's "use by" date. If you'd like you can ship some to me and I'll test
it to see if it's still good.

PS... watch out when trying to light multiple fuses at the same time... they
burn pretty fast... Gee was that a year ago already?

Don't do it Mike! Think of the shipping costs! Surely there must be someone 
closer who's willing to help, maybe someone a few minutes down the road 
even... :-)

"  Question, does an order already ordered that hasn't arrived yet count
towards the stash count if placing a new order before the already
ordered
order arrives?  "
Ask your accountant.  If your accountant is also your wife, duck
immediately after you ask.

You know Mike, 200# seems like such an arbitrary number.  Opps, I exceeded 
100#, ok, 150# etc.  We usually roast in gram quantities, all the big 
roasters are kg units, you "need" to keep with the system.  I believe your 
new limit is 100 kg.  Nice rational number, easy to remember number.  Sure, 
the math will be a touch more complicated (since SM sells in #) but I am 
sure you are up to the task.
