I recently got bags of both the ElSal Finca La Montanita Bourbon and
the Guat Huehue Finca Rosma, and they're both wonderful.  I've only had
time for one roast of each (I'm cursed with too many excellent choices,
heh), and am looking forward to getting to know both of them better in
the near future.  The ElSal Majahual is another fine choice, though for
some reason I haven't had any of this year's lot.  Probably has
something to do with 35 lb of greens still on hand...

John Searle: Michel, you're so clear in conversation; why is your
written work so obscure?
Michel Foucault: That's because, in order to be taken seriously by
French philosophers, twenty-five percent of what you write has to be
impenetrable nonsense.
