Hard time choosing coffee for Meanwood's picnic in the park next weekend.

It is also a coffee that shows our development as a roaster. First we bought this coffee in the Cup of Excellence program (a great way to meet a grower).

Then last year, I went out to the farm and did the deal on the farm with the brothers. I love the fact that last year I walked onto the farm after cupping a particular lot in the exporter's office, asked how much they wanted, and there was a short conference. They came back and told me, then we shook hands. Then we got back into the 4x4 and drove away.
