Subject: Travel to African Coffee areas question
My wife and I are planning to burn off my frequent flyer miles on a
couple of first class ducats to Africa. I'm interested in hearing from
anyone who has done a coffee origin trip to Africa and how it went. Who,
what, when, how, etc. Thanks. We hope to take a couple of side trips to
see wildlife parks and want to spend our time wisely. Not like when I go
somewhere and usually just show up and wander around town to later find
I wasn't even close to seeing the sights. Thanks.\
Bernie

Bob Yellin has just returned from a trip to Africa to coffee origins so you
may want to contact him. I don't recal his email off hand but I'm sure you'd
find it somewhere at coffeecuppers.com

Thanks for the info. I haven't been able to access the RG for a few
days. Keep getting an error message. mstone was talking about letting it
go as he couldn't keep maintaining it.

I haven't been in a while, so I don't know when it
changed, but the URL is now

http://roastersguild.org/forums/

If you're trying to get there via a bookk or link
you may be going to the old address,
http://bbs.scaa.org/etc... which no longer works.

talk to jeff taylor @ PT's Coffee in Topeka, to Richard @ Royal NY,
and Scott Reed @ Zephyr in NOLA.

also post this to the roasters' guild, if you haven't already.

kenya is probably your best bet for an all-'round tourist-y/coffee-y
combo trip.
