I can't afford Kona anymore. I use to blend 1/4 Kona with the Magnolia, because I like it and it sells well with friends and customers.
I haven't had JBM for over a decade. My contacts can't get it green anymore.
And, Hero? I use a hot air popcorn popper to roast my coffee. It goes on a shelf when it's done.
I don't waste counterspace with microwave transmitters that I can't modulate. (Read that as a microwave oven).
I can afford Tres Rios when the market is a buyers market. October/November... Or so. Depends. Gotta follow the market.
I'll roast my own and everyone else can pound sand. ;)
Home roaster here as well. I’ve burned out two Nesco roasters in the last five years. Lucky my son lives on the big Island. Buys green beans for me at the local farmers markets. Kona peaberry is the nectar of the gods........

Are you pulling my leg? A hot air popper? You can actually roast green coffee beans in one? And I know Kona is a deep dent in the wallet. I only indulge occasionally due to the price. Kona blends don't cut it - gotta have 100% genuine. But Jamaican Blue Mountain makes Kona look like robusta Nescafe filler, price-wise. The good stuff runs $35 a pound anymore.
