Here's my first 2007 order, all from Sweetias:

1027-5
Colombia Cup of Exc. #12 - El Descanso -5 lbs
$38.28

1028o-2
Colombia Cauca Organic -La Esperanza -2 lbs
$9.88

1026-5
Colombia Cup of Exc. #3 - El Placer -5 lbs
$40.02

I had intended on ordering a bunch of Colombia Excelsio, but that is all
gone. These are the max allowable order sizes for these Colombians. As
you might have guessed I have a soft spot for Colombians.

I just ordered 20 pounds of sweetias "Monkey" espresso blend! I
wanted 10 pounds, and 10 pounds of Zambian Lupili, but he's out of the
Lupili at the moment.

Green beans last a good while, and I'm getting tired of ordering every
month or so. I'll now order in 20 pound batches. Buying 20 pound bags
is more cost effective on price per pound, especially after shipping.
If his review on his next batch of Lupili is good, I'll pick up 20
pounds of that and store quantities in vacuum bags (I have a Foodsaver).

best of luck with parcelforce, took me a week and way too many phone calls
before I got my package from them...
