Last call Shock

Calling all coffee enthusiasts who want to find out how coffee's from other roasters are tasting and maybe get an idea if you like the other guy's/Gals's type of roaster better when you cup their offering and/or afterwards compare notes on how they got that neat taste in the cup.

This is a very fun event so please jump in and give it a whirl!

Last call!

Results are in, this was done very carefully by my 13.6 pounder, Mr. Manny, he was pawing the pieces of paper on the floor and managed to make 6 sets for us...

we have:

ginny and boar_d_laze

allen and RAG

Rev Roaster and oldgearhead

rick carter and snwcmpr

lawnmowerman and Airhan

jknoll42 and Bodka Coffee

Send your partner a PM, get the address and send when you wish, this is always a fun and wonderful way to try our beans on another roaster and coffee lover.

After you have received your gift it would be great to share your thoughts about the roast here...

No we are all not cuppers but we know what we like and clearly know the difference between Folgers and fresh roasted coffee.

All roasters like to get feedback for better or worse...

Plesae accept my thanks for your participation in the 2013 Bean Swap,

thanks all,

ginny

12 oz png to by sent to Airhan as soon as i get to post office. Just im case its a crappy roast, lm including 300 g greens. All crammed into a flat rate box. I am drinking it this morning after about 12 hrs. I believe this might be pretty good. Its certainly not bad.cross fingers

Here's something to hopefully ease the minds of anyone in the swap who's fearful of possibly sending out a less than stellar roast. Even most "crappy" roasts are miles ahead of what's typically available down at the local "specialty coffee" house up the road. So, if any of us happens to get a mediocre batch of Holiday Swap beans, we're still getting pretty darn decent coffee.

Also, to stay in the spirit of the Holidays, if you happen to end up with coffee that tastes like it came out of a wet ash tray, feel free to just thank the other person for the gesture within the forum and keep constructive negative criticism private.

Enjoy the Holiday Swap and the Christmas Holidays!

Airhan: it was sent yesterday. I was eagerly awaiting the arrival of your package today. Not yet. Looking forward to some rwanda. I have enough png left from the same roast you recieved to make one pot so I will know what it tastes like when you get it. Should be interesting.
