Subject: order roasted harrar and monsooned malabar
I wanted to send some coffee to a friend who likes Harrar. I'd also
like to introduce him to monsooned Malabar. I buy green in the UK, but
need a place to order roasted in the US for him. Any suggestions?

I buy my green Harrar from Chuck at coffeewholesalers.com

He also sells roasted coffee, at very reasonable prices. I've not tried his
roasted coffee but I'd assume it to be good.

p.s. he has roasted Malabar Gold but not straight, roasted MM. I don't
think you really want to send roasted MM to someone you like, if you have
ever had it by itself:-)

Oh, ken, its a British thing. just because J. Bond allegedly drank Blue
Mountain we do have other refined tastes.

It got monsooned becuase it was exposed to the weather on the lonnnggg ship
journey from India. We got a taste for it out of necessity and now they
bury it at the top of an Indian mountain and it has 50% chance of coming out
alive.

and Tom of sweetias writes in poems that it tastes funky.
