I am still loving this coffee. Nothing else I try is quite as enjoyable as this coffee.

I am happy to say that my years supply lasted very well and I still have a few weeks supply left. Before posting on this thread again I have taken the precaution of ordering and taking delivery of another years supply. I am now feeling almost as smugly satisfied as Bruce. :wink: :D

I admit that I have not tried the new crop yet :oops:, I am still finishing off last years stash. I am sure that your comment is made in the spirit of this thread and not an honest assessment of the new crop. :wink:

I have several hundred pounds worth of the stuff, it had better be as good as previous years. :? No thinking about it I have absolute trust in the purveyor of fine coffee, he has never let me down. :D He would never let me down. Oh hell I am off now to roast some to make sure he has not let me down.:lol:

If it is not up to standard I will be paying a visit to the said purveyor with the entire stash and will be tempted to take each bean in turn and insert it………….. well lets just say experiment with reverse Kopi Luwak.:wink:

Forget that, I'll take it off your hands, purely as a favour to you, you understand and to save Steve from having anything inserted anywhere.
Never let it be said that I'm not a generous soul. :roll:

That is a very generous offer Leigh but I am afraid I will have to turn it down. I have such faith in Steve that I do not even bother to roast a sample before I buy a years supply. :?

I have even more faith now having roasted some and can say that I will not be parting with a single bean. :wink: :D

I decided I needed a bit of a change so I roasted some Monsooned Malabar. That was a change!
