Way back when this list was busy, I used to take a look at coffees that
were getting some "Buzz" from the list members.  Maybe that's moved to the
forums, I don't know, I haven't had much time to look over there, but it is
something I miss.

One advantage to this list is that you tend to get to know people, how they
roast, and what their preferences are so that you can take their comments
in context.
