You guys really missed the opportunity to put a big yellow question mark on it to make it look like a BoC
Is this roasted to order? Just trying to gauge how fresh it will be on delivery
With the disclaimer on the end bit being what it is I wonder if I order and get it and its different from what’s printed what’s the return policy and what if I try it and it is stale or sucks (volcanic) rocks? What then? Seems I’d be out a lot of coin for nothing. So let me know. Might be in for 1 to try if it’s really good and there’s still more I might be in for 12 more. Also what the hell? Where’s the big ? to make it appear as a BoC or something?
I highly doubt it. It’s being sold by Wine Country Connect, not the roaster, Smokin’ Aces. They were selling this during the recent Woot-off too
I took a look at Smokin’ Aces website and they aren’t offering any similar Costa Rican (Tarrazu) coffees which leads me to believe this was a one-off run.
I almost bought one before I came to my senses and realized that living in a city, I have many, many, less expensive choices for whole bean roasted coffee.
If you’re interested in other asshats like me taking guesses about this coffee, here’s the forum search results from the recent sales.
Yeah. I’d be happy to take a swing at this if they can confirm it is roasted to order. But the things you pointed out are the red flags. I love smokin aces stuff, but with all the local roasters around me (and great options online) I can’t justify the price for potentially not fresh
Yes, this is roasted to order.
