I bet we'll see this coffee popping up at a lot of small roasters via Shrub, it jumps out at you just a tad more impressive because I believe they always report scores rounded to the nearest whole number, so not many roasters (who can afford it) are going to miss a 94 point fresh crop Ethiopian. Looks like they have 6000 kilos, much more than I expected. Mine will be here in the morning. I'll be deep freezing at least 8 pounds.

^did shrub sell out? I was hoping to let a new micro roaster in town know in hopes of them pouring me a shot on their Bosco :D

It still shows up on their site. When I got the email notification from Shrub this morning, it was listed as a 94 point coffee in the title but they do show it with the same score as SM once you follow the link. Not that half a point makes much of a difference, but I thought it was interesting. I don't mind Tom's scoring method, since it's also transparent. I don't correlate them too strongly to SCA cupping scores, but I bet they're quite close.

Just seeing something that he and his panel scored nearly perfect on flavor, complexity and aroma practically give me shivers. For under $7.

I purchase less than 2 days ago...10#s of the Hambela. You mentioned Tom's scoring as to natural Ethiopians. I was always under the impression he was not as enamored with them and scored wet process higher?

Historically, he's always seems to have scored natural Ethiopians about 2.5-3 points higher than what they seem. Dustin and I used to laugh about it all the time. They were incredible coffees though!

Please post your cupping notes when you get them! Decided to jump on this offering as well.
