I have some of that, need to get to it one of these days.  Too many
coffees competing for time, and I need to start scheduling the
Christmas gift roasting.

I'm lousy at ranking things like coffees.  I'll instead list my
favorite broad geographic regions: Central America, South America,
Africa & Asia, and Indonesia.  Haven't had anything from the Islands &
Oddities group in decades, so I guess my long ago opinion of Kona (nice
but unexciting) continues in effect.

There were a few that got away, or nearly did.  I can't quite figure
how come I only got 1# of the Bali Kintamani in the first place, though
I do understand all too well the back pressure from too many pounds of
greens in the stash that kept me from getting more before it was too
late.  I only failed to miss the Yemen Sharasi due to Jim's generosity
- I had regretfully decided to cut it from the fall order, then it
showed up as the surprise in the box.  (yeah, I know it's still on
offer, but at this point I'm trying not to order any more beans for at
least a couple months.)

Over 12k of beans, and there are a couple that I'm watching for, hoping
they return to the listings again.  I must be crazy... but I love it!

One Zone to rule them all, One Zone to find them,
One Zone to name them all and to the domain bind them,
In the Land of DotCom where the Spammers lie.
