I read this issue of Tiny Joy as it arrived with my shipment and it seemed
to me Thom was expressing some regrets rather than condemning the DP itself.
It is my hopes as well as it seems yours (and many others I suppose) that
his ambiguity in this regard does not reflect in the purveying of these

Today received my monthly 7-8# greens--# of the Kenya peaberry, # of the
Harar and 5# of the Brazil DP.

The Brazil was 5# untried--not unusual to jump in on a coffee like this due
to Tom's incredible sources and knowledgeable reviews. Grabbed the Tiny Joy
after carefully cutting open the box. Tiny Joy is on the website but prefer
to read it w/ my delivery. 

This Tiny Joy has thrown me for a loop. Thompson has put together a very
well written, well reasoned condemnation of DP coffees. 

The impetus to my foray into homeroasting began with a Guat Huehue shiny
with oil. A friend brought it on a visit, and though now understand how
overroasted, it was the best coffee ever. He told how he roasted it, gave me
SM's website. Seven years later, couple of modded I-Roasts and an RK Drum
later I am one happy camper ordering all my greens from one of the top
coffee guys in the world. Gravitated to African DP's very quickly--that lot
30 fruit bomb really got my attention--the first IMV sealed the deal--I am a
DP guy.

Upon reading Tiny Joy I was disappointed; you led me down this path, many of
us love the DP's, and I suddenly felt that much of my coffee experience has
been invalidated.
