Subject: Malabar Gold in UK
Hi everyone - not posted here for a few years, as I've been content to get
most of my green Malabar Gold from Danny.

I see now he has stopped selling MB online, does anyone here know any UK
merchants that stock it?

Thanks

Additionally, I noticed that he is not yet registered for Long
Beach...

Sorry that I can't supply you any more - I had a nice little
collection of regulars who I enjoyed dealing with :(

Josuma Coffee wanted me to order by the pallet, and also to supply
roasted MBG, by farming out the roasting side. I can't hold a
pallet-worth of MBG, and anyway, this was a side business for me - a
social thing whereby UK/European home roasters could get Malabar Gold
easily - I don't have the time to make MBG a full time business.

Since Josuma will ship at the same price to anyone who orders it, it
became uneconomical as anyone could club together and order a bag from
them, even though I made less than 1/lb before packing etc.

It would appear that UK roasters are also ordering MBG from a Canadian
outlet who appears to be competitive even after surface shipping costs
are added, but I don't know the seller - maybe they are mentioned on
the TooMuchCoffee forum:

Hasbean turned it down as he thought Josuma's non disclosure and legal
stuff was a bit serious, or so I read at toomuchcoffee.
