I have been on this list now for about 7 years-I got very close to 4
roasters-2 have died and for me this is very sad indeed-we are an extended
family sharing the love of discovery-politics stay off list-problems stay
off list-on list is the fellowship of the bean-the joy of that-
and annual gratitudes for  Tom and Maria for hosting us and continuing the
excellence of coffee drinking
