I am not sure if this has been discussed lately since I have been spotty in
checking the group, but in addition to the Coffeegeek podcast (which has
been hit and miss lately), I have come across a couple of other podcasts,
both video. One is Snob-free Coffee, which is a lot of fun. The other is
Coffee Video Magazine, which I have not watched yet. If you guys have not
heard of these, you might want to check it out. Are there any others out
there? We are definitely at the thin end of the "long tail", and it is
great that this stuff is available.

I'm in Hawaii on vacation actually and for the record am not
associated with any coffee association or people, I'm just a
professional musician who travels a lot and really (really) likes
coffee and espresso :-)

Yes, I've had a first-hand crash course in the political side of Kona
coffees over the past 2 days, quite eye-opening actually. So long.

Don't forget the AACafe podcast: http://www.doubleshotcoffee.com/Propaganda.html

That's about it for non-professionals (the other pro-focused podcasts
are a total waste of time).

I have a coffee podcast I've been doing since August '06. I travel
and work in the circus, so it's always been an interesting show (check
the "coffee with the clowns" episode for sure). This week and next
week's episodes will be from Kona country here in Hawaii (where I'm
visiting now) and my special guest for this week is Willem Boot.
Anyways, good stuff, if you have some spare time I'd love to hear some
feedback.
so long,
N

I wondered why you didn't write me back N:) after your initial email.
You are here with Willem Boot to do a cupping seminar for the HCA
(Hawaii Coffee Association) in Kona. I was curious.

Don't think many farmers can afford to go to that cupping, though, at
$250 entry "fee". And that seminar is even subsidized by our Dept Of
Ag!. Yikes, very pricey. As I responded to you, the HCA is mainly
made up of retailers and large Kona Coffee growers and not we small
farms.

Hope you enjoy your time here although the weather looks kind of murky
out there. Winds from the south and not our prevailing trade winds.

aloha,
Cea

Just yesterday I saw in in Longs Drug Store (in Kona) a 10% Hawaiian
Blend. If I remember, it was a mixture of 10% Kauai, Maui and/or Molokai
with 90% non-Hawaiian coffee. Needless to say, it was very inexpensive.
