Primarily micro lot batches from small plantations in the CR Central Range. We know people at every set of the process, from cultivation to roasting. When we find great beans we buy'm, roast'm, package'm and air ship to Boston. We don't sell a lot, but what we do get is hard to find and best in class. Thus it moves fast, <3 weeks. And, I am in the midst of setting up distribution on the west coast of CR, to supply the expat and tourist towns. It may be hard to believe but the majority of coffee sold within CR is crap, all the good stuff is exported. We don't make much from sales, but the experiences we have had from exploring coffee plantations, in our land rover and land cruiser, all over central america are priceless. Pura Vida!
Wow it is is a great thread. We agree with the large French press for the trail.

At home we run the Jura Z7...an upgrade from the Z5 a few years back. The thing has been worth every penny. My wife can make her fufu drinks as I call em, I can make my espresso really fast or steam milk for hot chocolate. Temps are good and with nice beans it makes me forget I could have put a used 200tdi in my truck for the same money

Porlex Ceramic Burr Coffee Grinder Group Buy?

Hey guys.

How many of you would be interested in a Group Buy of the Porlex Ceramic Burr Coffee Grinder? I'm going to sell the small one in my store and I thought we could do a group order so everyone gets a discount. I just bought the large one and I love it but I think the small version that holds the handle would be better for camping and travel. These are very high quality japanese coffee grinders. The perfect companion to your Snow Peak French Press. Ceramic burrs produce very high quality grounds and as you know, grinding fresh is the number one way to improve your coffee taste.

I just need an idea of how many might be interested then I can put together some pricing.

Ok. I'm going to get a group sale set up in the vendor section. The margins on these things are razor thin so I'm going to offer them to you at cost plus shipping (Priority Mail). You'll be helping me achieve the minimum order quantity and I will give you the best deal I can without occurring a loss on a top quality product.

For simplicity sake I'll probably do this group buy through Paypal and the thread (relocated to the vendor section) but for the Defender accessories please use the website and don't forget the discount code! The surrounds in particular needs more orders before I can go forward with tooling for them.

You can now order them in the vendor section of the forum. 9 grinders left at the group buy price.
