Killer fresh roasted coffee

I won't go into huge detail here right now. Basically, we buy the best beans in the world, roast each order to order, and mail it out within 24 hours of roasting by 2 Day Air. It doesn't get better; freshness is of the utmost importance. Coffee is only good for a month out of the roaster, max.

Plenty of people here have bought from us (myself and my wife) and feedback is excellent. There are several shining pro reviews of my espresso blends as well.

Normally I offer a discount to forum members. Instead, I wish to offer this: I will donate $1 per lb sold to this site, in addition to the regular donation to the IMC relief efforts in the Sudan. I appreciate the opportunity to serve people such as yourselves.

Because our site is fairly rudimentary, I can't tell where people are from ie which forum they come from. So I ask that if you buy, please post here the date and coffees you bought so I can make the appropriate donation.

So peruse our site, read the tips and about us, and feel free to ask questions!

I think I've only done it once. I use USPS Priority, so AFAIK, it's just a matter of throwing in the box and sending it out, correct?

Keep in mind I really prefer to send it as whole bean, for freshness, so you'd want a grinder.

Which, by the way, is outstanding.

Pickpocket, glad you like it!

Just so you guys understand, if you order, post up here with the coffees ordered, and the date, so i can make a donation to SocNet. It won't happen unless you post here. :)

Great, thank you! So far I've gotten 6lbs, so I'll round up this once and donate $10 to SocNet. It doesn't get much better than this: drink the best coffees in the world, fresh, while helping TWO worthy causes.
