CoffeeWars is Over
December 21, 2011 was a sad night. One of the original
four, the defender of Jamaican Blue Mountain, died. As Jason
Scott of Textfiles said:
Holy Crap, Jay Dyson, the angriest hacker motherfucker on the
face of the earth has left it! Good, he hated that dump, they
fucked it up.

Yes, my friends, it's true. Ten Coffee Wars is enough for
anyone. We decided in 2009 to quietly let it pass into
history, and so it will. We never really made a formal
announcement, but if you're reading this, and you were hopeful
that it was continuing, it's over. It is just not to be.
There may be some other event in the future, at Defcon, that
bills itself as Coffeewars, but it won't be us. Who can say what
the future holds? Still, it was a good run, and fun, and the
question that started it all still is unanswered.
Which coffee is better?
That's right, the eternal contest between Jamaican Blue Mountain
and Kona remains, never to be decided.

would be a far better and more productive place."
