[Homeroast] Sweet Maria's New Coffee Alert

I guess part of my thinking, and now correct me if I'm wrong...... The descriptions from Tom are great, but I swear I've read before that he does not want the cupping scores to correlate into "buy this or buy that." The coffees with the highest cup scores don't necessarily reflect the best brewed coffees correct?

That was the impression I got. Not to mention, coffee gets used in a variety of ways. I thought it would be neat to see right on the site how people are liking particular coffees brewed with particular brew methods, yadda yadda. I know several people that order from Sweet Marias and I'm the only one out of them on this list or the forums. Direct visibility on the site would add to the user base a lot. 

Anyways, it was just a though, at least it sparked conversation.

To add this to the SM site, I agree with John N. would add too much noise
and be confusing to most. It takes quite a bit of time and focus to just
learn to be at one with the present and might I add superb descriptions.
The SM forum is set up well enough as is to do this. And this now
underutilized list is certainly workable enough to accomplish what is
suggested. We have done this here successfully in the past.
