2lbs each of Jan and Feb GRP coffees arrived at my house today; along with 18lbs of other Klatch beans. That -- along with another 10kg of good beans I have banked -- should take me all the way through Valentines Day.

Roasting is giving me a helluva good time.

ordered mine ... hoping to be able to use the Revolution 500 on these instead of the Gene Café.

Leaving us Gene boys behind, eh? Good for you! Some day...

Ordered Jan/Feb's since individually ordering and waiting wipes out the discount with double shipping. Grabbed some house espresso as well. Wanted a nice comfort coffee for the holidays' cortados on the Cremina.

I'm all ordered up as well. 40$ shipping which makes it the same as ordering from a canadian source.

Jan/Feb's coffees arrived. I also had them toss in some house blend espresso from Klatch for holiday treats on the Cremina (and some Gesha from Revel in Billings). It will be the first coffees I have had from either of them.

Have some Christmas cookies to make and then I am going to wade through November's collaborative event and wrap it up.

Would it be cheating to roast small samples of the red honey to determine best finish levels before Jan?

I had most of December's coffee figured out before Thanksgiving.

They offer free shipping for the last weekend of the month via a special coupon code - but only to US customers. This happens EVERY month - based on the last 24 months. I'll wait a few weeks, since the free shipping saves over $15.

Klatch released this month's discount code, which saves me $16 on shipping. Use FREEKLATCH through Jan 1st for free ground shipping.
