yep - sure does need something to give a more professional feel.
goodness gracious me - has that old thing resurfaced again?
Unfortunately, the site does not seem to recognise my credentials - may be
locked away in a previous version of the database - oh well, I won't be
filling in credentials again - too much bother.
If the Kona Council really do want to issue their ITT to professionals
then I guess they would be well advised to find an easier channel.
IME those 10% middle-man sites are a vipers nest of twits that want the

KONA COFFEE COUNCIL WEB SITE
Purpose: To design a new web site for the Kona Coffee Council, a
nonprofit organization devoted to promoting and protecting 100% Kona Coffee.
Scope: Create a web site for the Kona Coffee Council to:
· Provide the public with information about 100% Kona as an
internationally famous, gourmet coffee, not to be confused with blends.
· Provide public access to web sites that sell 100% Kona Coffee
· Provide easy access to the Kona Coffee Council’s members list and
Estate Farms List

The Kona Coffee Council 100% seal logo must be prominently displayed on
the home page.
The design must be uncluttered and easy to use, for the novice as well
as the experienced Internet user. It must be easy to maintain. The life
expectancy is envisioned to be from 2 to 3 years, after which the design
will be revisited.
The design must be sensitive to the needs of low bandwidth users.
Graphics should reflect the unique Kona coffee environment with respect
to location and scenery; i.e., no ocean, surf, or surfers, because Kona
coffee is grown between 800 and 2000 feet on the sides of the volcanic
mountains in the Kona District of the Big Island of Hawaii.
Provisions must be made for paid advertisements and mutual links to
other sites supporting 100% Kona Coffee through sales or service.
Additionally, Kona tourist and visitor information may be included on
the site in the future.
