 Just a wandering mind gives pause now that I have the turntable up and spinning.

 It is fun to find obscure coffees and obscure music.  A crazy natural Honduras and maybe an early James Taylor go well together.

Both are solid but sometimes a little tweak here and there can really create some interesting elements. 

Kopi Luwak is worth at least one cup to try and so is any Mountain album.  Try it once, and only once.

Think of Tanzania AA and Counting Crows.  Okay, pleasurable with a strong statement.  But it is the classics that really derive great value.  Kenya, Colombia, Costa Rica, Sumatra, Ethiopia Harrar all rest on solid bases of quality.  Eric Clapton, Linda Ronstadt, Michael Jackson easily come to mind.  And then there are The Beatles.
