Thanks for the offer, but I already pulled the trigger on 1kg of Letty. Have you been able to get a lower shipping rate for larger quantities?

21g...$4.90 per shot...why not :roll:

1kg is not much. You need at least 10kg of this stuff on hand at all times :D Shipping is cheaper but then you pay a VAT too over a certain quantity.

My question is why don't we see any roasters on the West Coast, or even the US, pushing the boundaries like this. Crazy stuff! I can't wait to try...

Juan Pena is one of the best when it comes to experimental processing. And about as west coast as you can get.

I've had a bunch of Andy Town it's nowhere near what Manhattan is doing, unfortunately. I have not tried that one you linked but I just ordered it.

The real magic is Diego Bermudez. He's pushing the limits when it comes to experimental processing. I was able to get a small quantity of greens to roast myself and it's just as good home-roasted!

I've received two of the three high end coffees I've bought from Manhattan that were absolute crap that should have never made it into a bag other than a trash bag. Manhattan is incredibly inconsistent and they don't make amends for their bed wetting. They leave it to the cafes who resale their coffee to make it right by the customer. Their hype is big, but they rarely achieve it.

I got no dog in this fight, but I ordered some of the Letty from Dayglow and it is unbelievably fantastic...

The Don Rigoberto Herrera was an absolute dud.The Black Sheep was so-so and not worth the price. The Shady Bader was awesome. We'll have to start a separate thread to continue, I feel bad enough derailing the R24 topic, so I'll bow out for now.

We can start a sub-thread but do yourself a favor and buy Luna and Letty and then report back
