Bad coffee prevails when good coffee roasters stand by and do nothing.

The Rwanda I sent you is supposed to be arriving tomorrow, that would work out very well if we both got our beans tomorrow! cross fingers

12 oz png to be sent to Airhan as soon as i get to post office. Just in case its a crappy roast,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!

Allen

That eases my mind, a bit.
I am currently tasting the 2 I am sending and 1 is ok, but I will have to try the other again, I may have screwed up the brewing.

Yes, I guess you are right, miles above the commercial roasts. But, what does commercial roast taste like now days?

Brewed a big pot of png this morning, my mom liked it so much she asked for a second cup (that never happens with my beans). Wonderful roast Lawnmowerman!

No flogging allowed unless it's a french roast. Shock

Yours has been dropped off at the post office as well as of 9:45 am this morning mountain time (priority mail). I think everyone else in Colorado must have been at the same post office as me!

got my package from snwcmpr today.

Harrar and El Sal

I brewed the Harrar first (duh) and it is excellent! so complex and interesting. I'm finding these flavors in the cup with more to notice:

dry grounds
berry
cinnamon toast
graham cracker

cup
light leather
lemon candy
sweet tobacco
milk chocolate

very tasty and interesting!

Really really fine roast Ken, Thanks!
snwcmpr
Wow, what kind things to say.
