Tough topic, that, and I won't say you're wrong.

I could say that working farmers (from Cuba, Yemen, Kenya and Costa Rica to Kona) don't exactly fill the national coffers with hard currency for terrorism nor do they have time for maritime intrigues while they're up in the hills trying to get beans out of dirt. Here is a moral dilemma with solid positions from left to right and in the middle.

In my view, your basic Cuban farmer and your basic Yemeni farmer have the same goal - to survive, feed their children, make it to the next season and maybe offer a better chance for their kids. For me, for the same reason I am not particular about the origin of cigars I buy, I will drink coffee from Yemen. But it isn't that I haven't thought about it.

At a time I drank a lot of Jablum and I enjoyed Wallenford Estate. A friend from Jamaica used to send it.
It was very mild tasting and packed too much caffiene whallop for me at that time. I'm a lot less sensitive to caffiene now than I was then.
The novelty wore off quickly and I haven't had any for 4 or 5 years.
I'm going to look for the things you've mentioned and I'll give them a try.
Is there a reputable place for coffee like Upton Teas?

A nearby roaster would be your best bet. A guarantee of quality can also be had from coffee roasting/cigar maven Novasurf thru www.unclebeanz.com.

Aricha Lot 27 from Unclebeanz.com is really different. And extremely good. (A bit on the pricey side, but worth it for the experience.) Yum.

Yeah - that's the truth. It was the most different coffee the Moo family and I ever drank. It was maximum overdrive coffee. It was the best I ever drank. If it was $6.99-lb I think I would drink it every day for the rest of my coffee-drinking life.

Dag, that was good coffee. Speechless, he said.
