    Veteran Owned Coffee Company -- What do you think about our website?

    I winged it last year with our website, since then I've hired a web designer to help make it look better.

    What do you all think? OkyrieRoyale.com

    We also vinyl wrapped our business car to match our branding style. Not done, but I'm pretty happy with it so far.

    your web looks pretty nice.
    for SOC beans, you are selling them at $40 for 16oz. That is pretty steep pricing for one pound of SOC beans.
    IMO, I think that you need to illustrate more information about the coffee itself, such as farm, location, varietals, methods of milling, ...etc
    without these complete info, it would be impossible for consumers to believe it is worth $40 for SOC.

    also, i was hoping that I can see your coffee bags better.
    they are just too dark and I can not see it well, nor expand the photo.
    consumers would like to see the all side of the bag with detailed information about the coffee, roasted dates, and other valuable info to justify the cost.

    thanks and good luck to you.

    Thank you for your feedback. That is all stuff I would like to work on, but I'm glad you said something because I really need to update the copy to explain the coffees (and teas) better.

    I'm not familiar with the "SOC" acronym, what is that?

    Our prices reflect the fact that we donate up to 20% of our sales to non-profits that are focused on various causes we support, as well as donate to the non-profits we directly work with. We are focused on creating jobs and supporting the U.S. Veterans community, at-risk youth and developing better living conditions for people around the world. Out of those 3, we are currently able to directly impact the first two right now; We have a small indirect global impact right now due to the fact that we are fair trade and certified organic, so in the short term we are able to at least make a small impact with the farmers, workers and local environment. As we grow we will be able to work more directly towards our global humanitarian mission more and more.

    My roaster was able to source about 14 different single origins. I'm not as familiar with the how or where, other than I know we have 14 single origins, I'll have to ask him for those details.

    I'm more focused on the branding, marketing and mission as of now. I most definitely want to get more involved, in the future, with visiting the farms and expanding our mission to benefit them more and more as we grow.

    SOC means single origin coffee which you are currently selling....

    It is quite noble to donate 20% to U.S. Veterans community to helps others who really need help.

    But, regards to fair trade & organic, please study bit more about this subjects via web and also here in forum.
    I also made a lot of threads about FT and Organic beans. And honestly, these organizations are making the lives of coffee workers' families worse.

    I have a first hand experience from our own farm in Zunil, Quetzaltenango, Guatemala and also I work with many different coffee farms in all different regions of Guatemala since we (Ensoluna S.A. Guatemala) are a small specialty coffee exporting company that owns a couple of small farms, two retail shops and one roasting company in our city. So, I personally know how bad FT & Organic bean organization can be to coffee farmers.

    so, please do some more research about these subjects. you will be very surprised what really are behind them.
