    I don't know djveed, my instinct is to buy direct from the roaster, not go through a middle man.

    If the coffees are in fact shipped directly from the roaster and I could try different roasters, all for one shipping rate in a single checkout, then cool, I'm game. Of course, roast dates would be provided?

    Be sure to include: Boca Java, Counter Culture Coffee, Mocha Joe's, then I'll buy from your site for sure.

    8/15 update: Edited out one of my suggestions, for strategic reasons....

    Alun: well I think having a physical store location is a distant goal for anyone trying this. But for now a website will suffice. And biscotto: with 30,000 anal retentive forum members on coffeeforums.com, there has to be guaranteed quality and fresh roasted as a must. I think I'm going to roll with this...

    Djveed, could you make it a true one stop shop and add french presses and grinders to your site? Just an idea. Good luck!

    I seriously doubt any of the well known roasters like Intelli/CCC/ect would be interested in cutting you a piece of the pie when they are doing all the work. I also have to wonder what I have to gain over just buying directly from their websites?

    If you hook up with some of the smaller, regional roasters it might fly but the quality would have to be there.

    This place: http://www.greatcoffee.com/trlanding.cfm already does something similar. I believe they are tied in with Coffee Review. From the reviews I've read they actually ship the coffee so freshness or lack of it has been an issue.

    JohnB - thanks for the constructive criticism - which is an essential part of building a business. Essentially all I'm offering is incremental revenue to the roaster. Sure people can simply go direct to their websites and purchase there. However this just provides an added medium of purchasing. For example, a subscription charge of say $20 per month enables $200 in revenue, or whatever. The more places that incoming orders come in from - the more incremental revenue you gain. Thoughts?

    Coffee Coice Confusion

    You don''t have to be a snob, a geek or a whiz to find excellent coffee with a conscience. You have about 2,500 roasters in the US who will provide fine tasting coffees by degree of your palate and knowledge. Narrow that to 38 or so who only buy organic/ fair trade. You know the history of the bean and the grower. Dean''s Beans is what I serve - mainly because Dean has done his dues and was a pioneer among the 38. I don''t compromise on quality . Try it ! \" What would Jesus drink?\"

    Hey Lekafe. I know a few industry proffessionals up your way. Do you know Sirada (PnF Coffee) or Zan from Peaberry and Vudh (who is a sometime poster here)? There are a few others (mainly in the Black Canyon network). Good to see your postings and enthusiasm. I have had a chance via Zan to sample some of the Thai Arabicas grown in the north of the country. Sirada at PnF has some of our Sumatran Arabicas that they blend during roasting for their espresso blend. I am pretty keen to head up that way soon... looking at a few options at present around the region
