Ditto on that -- I like this mail list format much better. And ditto on 
the coffee, Karl! I don't think I've ever been unhappy with any bean 
from SMs. But Ethiopian DPs are awesome! I've really liked what I've 
gotten lately, including the Eth Koratie DP.

The reason I like the mail list format is that it feels like a bunch

Nicely put!

Though I've mostly been a lurker on the list, I have learned a tremendous
amount from all the wild and crazy conversations here.  Including topics
which I never would have clicked on in a "forum".

For me, the list really established the feeling of a Sweet Maria's
community, complete with imperfections and occasional beauty.

+1 on the Ethiopian Koratie DP, that was a delicious coffee!
