I am looking forward to more from Terry.  This is great having a "condensed" coffee history and upcoming descriptions of beans and roasts here on CoffeeGeek.  There is much info on equipment - descriptions, reviews, etc - but more on coffee varietals with roast suggestions and taste descriptions will help round out the site.

I agree Fred. I mean, I'm a complete techie geek myself, but even I want more articles on beans, on culture, on ceremony, on history, and the like. (not to say the machine and technique articles aren't good - I love those kinds of columns too)

I'm guessing that guys like Terry and Ted will step up to the plate and really deliver on these aspects. Since I have a more "free reign" with my own column than I've given most of the columnists here (man, am I evil), I'll start delving more into the non machine and non-technical articles where I can.

Also, very soon (like in a few days), we'll have three new columnists on the site. Two of them will change every week, because they are open forums for people like you Fred, who may have something to say. I hope you'll consider participating.
