    Now I'm hoping that we'll get a fair share of BCBCS come in since we got next to nothing the first time.

    I'm hearing from various people that I trust that the coffee flavor has already peaked and is in sharp decline. I just opened my first one so I really don't have a good baseline. It does seem to be a little less in your face and syrupy than the 2012, from what I recall.

    But yes, another surprise round would be nice!

    I still have 1-2012 left and plenty of 2013. We shared a 2012 at the Silhouette release and it was still amazing.
    It wasn't quite as coffee forward obviously but still very good. I am not worried about 2013 its Bourbon County how bad could it be. You know I just might have to drink 1 tonight and find out.

    I am afraid that's probably all the coffee we will get.
    I remember hearing back in November that the BCBCS
    yield was lower. The coffee was hard to get even in Chicago.
