    We don't 'blend' shipping cost with our bean prices.
    The local roasters around you prolly aren't priced at $10 a bag?
    I drank the Guatemala this morning! Amazing!
    Use promo code BEAN19
    You won't be disappointed!

    thanks. I am interested in guatemalan light roast and ethiopian hambela.
    can you tell me when they were roasted?

    Cool!. I am placing the order now.
    thanks.
    PS: after I get them, I will do some cupping and other methods and if good, I will post the information on this forum.
    thanks a lot and have a good day, Derek.

    Often when people find out that I roast my own beans they ask me where I get green beans. I always tell them that there are many places to get green beans, you can even get them on Amazon. Then I say "I can't get them on Amazon because they never give me enough information to satisfy me", I imagine that it would be the same with roasted beans.

    I got them a week ago. Derek was nice enough to send me an extra bag (costa rica)
    I tried them with aeropress, regular brewed coffee and V60 plus cold brew.
    all excellent.
    very freshly & "consistently" roasted beans.

    I will buy again. Thanks Derek & Debbie.

    That's one of the main reasons I stick with Sweet Maria's for my greens. Their year round offerings/consistency, shipping rates, customer service, roasting/cupping/farm notes are top notch. Have yet to find what I'd consider defects/no debris and that's from ordering around 300# from them. May cost a bit more than others, but you get what you pay for.
    I'm a legend among my own kind... you my friend are just a legend in your own mind. Later!

    The Guatemalan looks pretty good, but the Ethiopian has some that look a bit underdeveloped. I know lots of people think pics of roasted coffee can't tell much about it, but I strongly disagree.

    I love SM, I am also their fanboy because while I have learned much about coffee from many sources, Tom has probably taught me more than any other source. Hard not to support a business like theirs when their success depends on mine so heavily.
