    Yes it will come back soon.

    Some of the current starter packs had some of this years crop in them and it was really good so it might even appear in the September poll.

    Re: Indian Tiger Mountain

    I really liked this one too!
    Very nice as a SO for milk drinks. Also found it to be a very even bean for roasting.

    Look forward to seeing it again.

    And when the poll is finished Andy can get big money for the bag on eBay...

    Did anybody else see the Tiger Mountain bag (empty) that sold for $74! :o
    A second bag went for about $28

    Wow.
    I have a free one hanging in my shed (where it it STAYING by the way).

    I also think that some commercial roasters sell their coffee bags as weed mats for the garden for a few dollars each. Might be a chance to make a few bucks for some enterprising roaster!

    Yep,

    Saw those, and even had a bid on them, but $74 for a hessian bag, even with the head of a tiger silk-screened on the front :o.... Youve got to be kidding,

    There you go Andy.
    Another good reason to poll this one. You can even make money from the bag it comes in. ;-)

    Tell you what ...all we need is a few old bags and a spray can and we could make some pretty good money at $70 odd and pop ;) ...not bad for about 10 mins of counterfeit work :P .

    back on the topic though...i add my vote for this coffee, last years crop was outstanding. Is this years on the same level Andy???

    Re: Indian Tiger Mountain

    There are always mad Richmond supporters looking around for these...the Tiger head( i think) is a rip off from the old Tiger logo. :)

    The coffee isnt bad though.. :P

    Re: Indian Tiger Mountain

    This also had a tag on the side of it with 21 century tiger www.21stcenturytiger.org/ which seems to be a legit website. No sure if this tag is a sign that the beans are what they say they are. Andy or someone else, could you confirm this?

    Yep, thats the one. The bags change a little from time to time depending on who printed them I assume.

    Price? The $15/kg would be about average retail price I guess
    ...but CS home roasters never pay retail. ;)

    Re: Indian Tiger Mountain

    I wish for Tiger Mountain in the April beanbay as I reckon there are lots of people who missed out in the March one. I for one have been hanging out for a quarter of a year for more of this one, only to be unlucky today!

    I second this Lucinda - having recently "discovered" my love of both, MM and Mysore Nuggets, I would definitely be keen to keep feeding the Indian experience!!! :)

    Re: Indian Tiger Mountain

    Absolutely a third vote here. I picked up some of this green from a local green seller (at quite an inflated price I must add :( but they are a shopfront so thats kinda fair enough) and its equal top or a close second on my list of picks at the moment. Id be up for several kilos if it became available at this quality.
