A bulk buy from the shrub seems like a nice idea, letting us get access to cool greens at more reasonable prices. I'll look into it when I get home from our vacation on Monday.

Price will work out to $5/$5.50 per pound. There is a constant flow of new coffees. I don't push any greens that SM offers; just Shrub's unique ones.

November or December I guess. But let's give Jim first choice, he's yet to have a go; and I'm certainly looking forward to his stewardship.

I reached out for him to take August, but his work on CoffeeCon kept him busy enough. He was going to do September, but we've yet to finalize who'll do what, when. It'll all work itself out soon enough.

If September is better for Jim, I'm more than happy to wait and do a later month, by the way.

Toss a coin. But if you already had a green in mind, then you should take September. I haven't had a lot of free time to nail something down with Jim, so it's not like it's all fleshed out.

Awfully quiet on the Roast and learn front...
Mark, for September, I would suggest just grabbing a buy from one of the vendors on-line. With so few of us participating in August, grabbing 50 lbs at Shrub may not be worth the effort.

Yeah, I think you are right about that. It's a shame, because I have some promising samples heading my way, with strong recommendations from Chris. But given that such a small group is involved these days (and that my own resources are a bit thin at the moment), fronting the cash for a large buy doesn't seem to make sense.

So with that off the table, I'll pick between some recent coffees I've roasted with good results that have something different to offer than what we've been doing of late. Some leading candidates include the following:

Guatemala Antigua Hunapu Bourbon: https://bodhileaf.worldsecuresystems.co ... pu-Bourbon

Sumatra Gayo Mountain FTO: https://bodhileaf.worldsecuresystems.co ... yo-grade_1

The Hunapu will be a crowd pleaser, I'm sure, while the Gayo Mt. will take us into some new territory from past R&Ls. I could go either way, so if people have a strong preference, let me know.

If you get something you really like from Chris, I will gladly buy a bag and distribute to whomever is interested and then roast the rest for my shop. I'm a sweet coffee guy, so prefer something along those lines. Let me know if there's something you'd really like to use.

It'll be great to participate in the R&L process too.

That's really generous of you! I'll get in touch after I've roasted some samples. According to the Shrub, both the coffees I'm interested in are quite sweet:
