Coffee Spanish for Coffee Buyers Kickstarter
First of all, I think this belongs here? If not, I'll take care of it.
Anyways, Barista Guild founding member/IP Coffee Mexico Expert Andy Newbom and humble little ole' me wrote a little thing called Coffee Spanish. We aim to give green buyers and enthusiasts the language tools, cultural knowledge, and technical information needed to build relationships that last in Latin America. Backers of the Kickstarter program will get some sweet stuff such as:
- Coffee Posters
- Signed Books
- Various Swag
- Signed Copies and Skype sessions with either of us
You'll see articles and reviews in Daily Coffee News, Barista Magazine, Coffee Lover's Journal, and Fresh Cup in the coming days. Swing on by our page, Coffeespanish.com, to get news and announcements. Kickstarter goes live May 10th.

Not sure about the rules either aroaster83 (name?). Personally, I think any forum is well served to be kept clean of all commercial offers (including Kickstarter campaigns) as, in a matter of time, they will become the norm and the chore of sifting through all the commercial posts to find legitimate coffee related discussiions will lessen the appeal of hanging out here.
Having said that, at least you are aware and made an attempt to place this post in an appropriate place as allowed by the powers that be, and you are not new member. With this being the case, I hope that Rose and Topher agree that you be given some slack and let it stand.
I think your idea is cool, and will check it out and report back to you. I am hoping to take a trip to Guatemala with Alex (ensoluna) some time this year, so I am thinking this could help bring an old peaberry up to speed on language and culture as needed. Best of luck and Cheers!

I just received an email announcing the impending launch of this kickstarter campaign. I would encourage anyone on this forum with a dream of someday being able to work with, or travel to, origin countries in Latin America to check this out!

Beat me to it! The feedback has been awesome and Andy I were stoked at the support we received here. If you have questions or anything, just shout. I'm happy to answer anything the community has about the content, their experiences with the book, or just general coffee know-how.
