I'm a premium coffee junky. For years my favorite has been Kenya Peaberry. I usually buy 2 pounds at a time from our local spice merchant. Last month it was up to $11 a pound after being at $9 for years. I went to make my next purchase yesterday and it was $14.50 Lb! pale
What's going on in Africa that's driven the price so high? Folgers is like drinking saturated cardboard to me. My sister lives in Washington and sends me "Seattle's Best" but I still need my fix of Cherry beans from Kenya.
What's up with this? Is it our high taxing government getting involved in this just like they have with tobacco industry?
Hello, Falconer. Spice Merchant-my favorite tea house. Was just there 2 days ago buying some Assam. Wish I could afford premium coffee, but, since I can't, buy Cafe Bustelo from the local WalMart. Canned coffee which tastes as good as almost any freshly roasted whole bean coffee I've ever drank. earl

Thanks Earl. I'll surely give it a try. That is if I can find a Walmart around. somewhere. lol!
Actually, unless you have a sizeable Hispanic community, it might not be available. It's an espresso roast. However, check out the website for Javacabana.com. earl

Earl, we're talk'n Wichita here bud! I'll find it. No problem. thanks again.
Ps - let me know if you have any tobaccy places to patronize beside the Humidor and the Chateau. Send me a PM, these guys are probably tired of hearing about Kansasland. Sleep

I find it very interesting that there are so many home roasters here. I too have roasted my own on and off for years (using Sweet Maria's for green beans as well - heck, I was ordering from them when they were still in Ohio).

Perhaps there is something to be said for the love of the pipe, fine tobacco, and indulging in the wonders of home roasting going together? Or, at the very least, giving some serious thought and love to excellent coffees (for those who don't roast their own, but who pay attention to what they buy - OTC or otherwise)?

Imagine the offerings (baccy, coffees, and perhaps other fine libations) at a BoB pot luck. It would be an olfactory delight!

This morning is Willoughby's Bolivia Fair Trade-Organic. We grind our own. Never tried roasting.
