Hi Ron, I'm not Malachi., but here's the answer; Quote: 'Supremo' refers to a specific export grade, in this case the top grade.
They are also marketed by region. However, these region names are rarely
used by US roasters.

Thanks Craig. I couldn't figure out how to do a link, but this is another message in that thread:

"Oct 14 1999, 3:00 am

All Supremo means is the coffee didn't pass through a 18/64 screen.....It
never determined the cup quality... Peaberry is product of
screening....There are allot of coffee's being processed other then
screening.... There are machines that assort by weight and machines that
assort by color.... With the Specialty Market growing, more and more
coffee's are being processed to keep up with the demand..... I believe this
is doing more damage to the crops then good..... I've seen in this newsgroup
where some posters talk about assuring the quality of there green by the
consistency in the size of the bean.... Well, coffee plants don't produce
coffee that consistent... Peaberry comes of the same trees as the nice size
beans..... So if the sack of coffee you buy has predominately the same size
beans.. It has been processed before it was bagged..... Also the sack not
always determines the country of origin...... The ultimate mark of quality
is the taster...... Remember some people like Dunkin Donuts
coffee....yuck!!!

Anytime Ron, it's easy enough to do though. {:-)
Just go down to MRC's post (#11 in the thread), & click on it. Then click "Show options", individual post. Look up in your browser address bar & you'll see the URL for this individual post. Left click & highlight all of the URL, then right click to "copy" it. When you're posting your reply, right click the URL into your post. The WIPS forums customized software here recognizes a URL string? (hope that's the right terminology), & converts it to., in this case a Google link.

Like this for your thread post quote: Click Here (groups-beta.google.com)  or you can do it like this inside the brackets [url here] What ever you want to call your URL here [ x ] for a hyperlink: Exact same link.

Ron, if you just click the "Quote" button on my post., (without submitting the post) then you'll be able to see the URL's.., & the 2nd one inside of the brackets. [ ]

Thanks again. By the way, and very off topic, I've been admiring the software that runs this site ever since I got here. I don't know anything about software or web programming, but I recognize that this implementation is extremely well thought out and quite sophisticated, user-friendly to the max.

I know about the Billy Crystal moments.  We just got back from a week vacation to the Colorado rockies.  I had 2.5 lbs of freshly roasted beans along with my little wirly blade grinder and other supplies in my suitcase.  My wife made mention of that very episode in the movie but now she wouldn't want to travel without it either.

Great article, just thought you should know that Panther City is not the only place in town that roasts their own beans.  White Rock Coffee in Dallas roats their own beans on site as well.  I was in Dallas a couple of weeks ago and came across White Rock Coffee; it's a great shop with a very friendly owner, stop by there!

Great article, Rhonda! Thanks for reminding me how I felt 8 years ago when I stumbled across this new little shop called the Cedarburg Coffee Roastery. Changed me forever, it did.

Hi, Rhonda!  Well, we're both in the D/FW area (I live in Arlington), we both apparently love good coffee, and we both write.  Seems we've got a few things in common.  Yours was a good, informative and entertaining article - but I couldn't find any mention of WHERE the Panther City Coffee Co.'s located.  And unfortunately, though I visited your web site (no email contact info there), and Panther City's site (didn't see any mention of their location on their own site), there doesn't seem to be any way to contact you directly.  I'd love to sit down with an espresso or two and chat about those things we have in common sometime.  Oh, and I saw that you were up for a Stoker (have they had the banquet yet this year?) - so congrats.  Couldn't find you listed in the HWA directory either, so I'm guessing that you're probably not a member.  Best anyway - David
