    I am a happy man. You have made me very grateful. For this is the very first time that the Crown Jewels have ever been adequately & deliriously praised by an unprejudiced person. Still it is the cigars' own fault that this is so for it is a cigar which excites envy & jealousy in the smoker because he knows & feels the truth of which you have said; that there is no other cigar that is just like it. There are cigars which resemble it but only in appearance, not in spirit & not in the ability to dare & do. There is no other cigar that can make a person want to go away & get by himself & think this life over & wonder if it is altogether worth while. I will send you some more when you get out. Let me know. Any man of fine intelligence who is acquainted with Crown Jewels prizes them above any other gems & saves them & hoards them. I gave Harry Rogers a box two years ago & he has them yet. Let me know when you are out.

    No.  Early harvest Centrals are trickling in, but the higher the elevation the better the coffee (generally) and they ripen later.

    Sorry.  The mountain of beans has already been schlepped into my basement and now resides in 33gal. Rubbermaid Brutes.

    I misread the guess, I thought it was weight and cost of shipping.

    Is it too late to edit this thread to "Hill of Beans Contest"? I am sure those beans cost an arm and a leg, Peter, so calling it hill of beans would be a nice touch of irony.

    Figured I'd pay homage to my Irish friends on St. Patty's day with Pallet O'Beans, but I like your idea better.

    Keep the guesses coming, ladies.  A couple are close on the weight and one brother's close on the money.
