    Tom, a great discussion about Coffee Leaf Rust—- and as a coffee club member who has bought over 100 lbs. of your coffee the last five years when I was on the island for two months each yea – plus having the coffee mailed to me at home here in Illinoisr, I am glad to hear that. I myself am retired from bing a director of a college agricultural program here in Illinois so I am very aware of cropping systems and essential management to maximize .profitability.
    Best wishes to you – and perhaps someday we will meet when I am over there for two months next winter. In fact, I might request a private tour of your coffee farm to hear the historical perspective. One of my three sons is on the management team at Four ‘Season Resort and he might also be very interested in taking the tour. Larry Fischer
