Received my first stash of coffee with SM's new 
labels. It's so convenient to have Tom's expert roasting recommendations right 
there...saves me trips to the puter to check out how roastings should go.Thanks 
Tom for taking the time to do that...so thoughtful.

Awesome! I have had the same problem. - Always seem 
to forget what Tom said about a coffee I haven't tried yet. Ordered yesterday 
and can't wait to get the new stuff.(new to me, at least : )

3) From: Jason Molinari

That is wonderful.  I have often wished Tom did this, but I figured he did 
so much it was not worth asking.  One other thing I would like to see would 
be a checkoff during checkout for a printout of the  whole review for each 
bean you order.   That way, the first time you order a  bean, you could get 
the whole cupping information, but after you have it and can file it for 
reference,  you don't need it a second time.

Yes, yes, yes!!  Or maybe just each coffee be its own page on the web 
site, so it could be printed individually.  Whichever would be easier 
for Tom.

Michael - - one method:  I get into the SM reviews; mark just the coffee of
interest; copy and paste to a blank word file; print the single page from there. 
The copy/paste avoids an occasional glitch of printing out the whole section of
reviews.  From there I insert the review page into a clear protector cover that I
keep in a thin 3-ring binder next to my roaster stuff.  I have about 30 coffees like
this organized by region, blends, and decafs---pretty much parallel to the SM site.

I've taken basically the same approach to printing these pages. it takes a little time after each order, but you control the page breaks, etc.

Martin,
Thanks.  That is what I have been doing, except contrary soul that I am
I paste them into Wordperfect.  I am not organized enough for a three
ring, I just use a folder.  I like the plastic protector idea, some of
mine are pretty stained by now.

Actually - this was soemthing that several people had asked for but 
it took me a long time to figure out how to do it. I hope its useful, 
because what it sort of lacks is information about other roast 
levels, especially roasting darker. The fact is, a coffee has to cup 
well at somewhere in the medium ranges to have any chance of roasting 
well darker than that, so thats part of the reason that you see all 
these City, City+, Full City + etc etc recommendations. It's also 
risky because some coffees are less predictable and won't produce 
flavors on every roast level and in every roaster. But the flavrs 
should be in the range of what to expect, and that seems good enough. 
Of course, people can always go to the original review for more info. 
Right now the bags are shipping with about 60% new lablels, 40% old 
ones, since we just started applying them on Monday and are trying to 
use up all the old ones we had printed. But definitely in a wekk or 
two everything will have new ones...
Thanks a lot for the feedback. It's one of my 10,0000 improvement 
projects and its really nice when I know that people notice and 
appreciate these things...

I certainly will appreciate it on my next order! 
Not having seen the labels, I am wondering if it would be possible to put your web address on it, like I believe you used to? I first came to your web site after noticing it on a label from a sample pack that had been given (along with a roaster) to a friend of a friend. He wasn't that enthused about roasting, but it intrigued me. When I next got a chance I went to your site and learned enough to give it a try. Then I started down the slippery slope of coffee obsession...

Tom,
<Snip>
We appreciate pretty much everything you do - that's why we keep coming back
and bringing friends!
Oh, and my wife has decided that your Liquid Amber Expresso blend is her
favorite - unlike some of the coffees that taste 'too good' it blends well
with the cream and sugar she always adds.  A 'too good' coffee is one that
tastes better if you don't add anything to it.  I'd argue that she should
just not add anything, but she buys me all these lovely toys. 
Enjoy!

I use another way to print just what I want.  I highlight the text I want to
print, hit the print button, then when the print window comes up I choose
'print selection'.  Then I only print the text I selected.
