I don't care for Sumatra caf.  Of the Ethiopian beans I like Yirgacheffe -
very reliable.  For a different taste I have been drinking the Guatemala
gesha coffee from Sweetmarias.

I already ordered the Stumptown so I hope I like it enough to finish it -
maybe blend it.

I also ordered the  Major Dickinson - we'll see.

Thanks for the splendid reply and apologies for not replying sooner - got
mixed up on the address and thought the post was from a friend of Adrian's.

I did not notice that you had joined some time ago

Having been through quite a few expensive roasters I have been using the
Popsrite popcorn roaster for several years.  I wore out one but it only
costs $20 to replace.
