Hello Craig
I ordered 10 pounds for a test ride, will see how long it takes to ship it out to Baie-Comeau on the North Shore. I read on alt.coffee that you finaly went there and met the boss, that's nice but how where the beans ? Did you roast some ? Did they have a lot of defects ? Please give us the whole poop, and nothing but the poop... 8-)

P.S: My order went out on the 08

Hi Steve-
Great to hear from ya!
The whole Kopi Luwak,& nothing but Kopi Luwak {:-D  

I've roasted all 3.The Kenya "AA",Sumatra Mandheling,& the private Nicaraguan estate Aroma "Nica". No defects! The Kenyan & Mandheling are fuller,richer tasting than my Oct/01  order & both have finished roasts (the bean sizes),that look to be about 30-40% larger. The Nica is exceptionally clean & looks as green as the Heritage Tarrazu,& Sweet Maria's Tarrazu Santa Elena "Miel"02. A very good cup,well balanced like a Tarrazu. Check out the writeup on Hasbeans click here  Click on Aroma Nica at the bottom of page.There's an article on this finca (farm),& a letter of appreciation (Thank you) from the director there. The Nica is Hasbean's Daily Cafe's house coffee. Steve,what coffee's did you order?

Yo Craig

I ordered a sample mix if I can say that, two pounds of each of these:

-Aroma Nica
-Columbia Supremo Light
-Guatemala Antigua
-Mexican Pluma Altura
-Mocha

Still waiting, but now they are out of Pluma Altura, maybe that will delay my order.

Steve,
Maybe you could email Hasbeans & subsitute Sumatra Mandheling &/or Aroma Nica. They're both great coffee's, you won't be disappointed!

Well finaly, I received my order from Hasbeans today and with the Pluma Altura, seems I was the one who took the last 2 pounds (he,he,he) and Paul had sent me a email on that.  The beans look very nice (no defects) and will probably be roasting some this weekend.
There is something weird about the 5$ flat shipping rate, in fact the real cost was 9.20$ but still I only paid 5$.
Good for us... 8-)
Cheers

Steve, Whadda ya mean finally!? {:-D  Your order shipped on Thurs, Aug 8 & you Got your order today Tues,Aug 13th. Flat rate shipping is Parcel Post 5-7 days delivery. Not counting the weekend, thats 4 days!
Priority Post is $10 & 2-3 days delivery. It looks like Paul ate the difference. Thats great!, at least you got the beans earlier, & you were itching to get started! This flat rate shipping thing is pretty incredible, I'm not gonna knock a Good thing! Please keep me posted on what you think of the quality.

Don't get me wrong there my friend 8-)  When I said finally, I was not ranting about the delivery at all, in fact I was most pleased with the fact that it took just 4 days.  But as you know that morning I had sent an email to them asking if they could change my order because I tought they were out of Pluma Altura, in the end (finally) I was the one who had the last of it. (yeah !)

Anyway, if it's not raining too much this weekend, I surely will roast the Aroma Nica.  I tend to roast on the dark side, how did you do yours ?  First time I'll be drinking coffee from Nicaragua.

I'm still itching  8^)>
