Andrea, I wish I'd had your advice before I went to Office Max
yesterday, but then I guess I didn't know before I went that they'd
stopped carrying Epson Photo Quality Inkjet paper, which as I've said
has been my paper of choice for years. I bought HP Color Inkjet
paper, which I found out this morning doesn't work for beans; I'll
take it back and try to trade it in on some some HP Premium on the
basis of your recommendation.
