I have tried shipping to Canada, and I prefer not to. It's very hit or miss, time-wise. Use your MN POBox, and you'll have it in 3 days max! :D

Have to put in a plug for poison. He's getting me coffee to Iraq in about 7 days. Worked my way through a pound of Ethiopian, which was excellent, and now I'm halfway through the Sumatra, which is even better. I still have a pound of Brazilian to start into and I cannot wait. His coffee is in such demand by the people I work around, I ordered two pounds of every type of coffee he had in stock. Might still need more.

Best coffee I've ever had, bar none.

This is the best month of sales through you guys on SOCNET. There will be a nice donation at the end of the month. Be sure to post here what you bought on what date so I can give them their donation.

I'm not sure why I'm doing this, but I am going to discount my Brazil for you guys. I'm hoping I can lure some lurkers who may be curious what the fuss is, but can't pry the cup 'o Yuban from their hands.

If you haven't tried it before, I roast it on the medium-light side, which brings out a nice sweet fruitiness and semi-sweet cocoa flavor. If you're a Yuban drinker, all you need to know is it's FUCKING GOOD!

Just put the coffee in the cart to receive the discount. This weekend only! and yes, $1.25 in donations per lb will still be made. Ouch! :D

Question...do you have a recommendation for grinding and strength settings on the maker? I normally grind at the coarsest setting and have the Cappresso CoffeeTEAM S set at the strongest setting. I'm curious is there is a better selection to enhance the taste.

BTW, just started into the Columbian and it is fantastic. The Brazil was too.

Not just any cup o' joe! Have to say it's the best coffee around and the Sumatra is heaven on earth. Reminds me...I need to order some, been a while.

ya here for the gang-bang? This aint just any old cup: we choose the best coffees in the world, roast em in small batches, and harness the power of our flying ninja monkeys to package it and put it in your grubby hands within two or three days of roasting. Nifty, huh?
