Third Wave Wichteln 2017


Recommended Posts

Out of interest. Do most people get sent direct from the roaster or delivered to yourself & sent on?

 

I did the former in the first year but never found it if it arrived. Last year I bought the beans and sent them tracked, so know that they arrived and as it turned out, it's what I have done this year. I happened to be in London yesterday, popped into Notes for a reviving espresso and spotted a big of their beans, roasted on the 19th so I posted those this morning.

OK, I got Arizona in the good old US of A Anyone got an tips on the cheapest way to get a package out there?

 

250g of beans in a small padded envelope should be £7.20 Royal Mail (untracked international standard).

 

Sent to USA last 2 years, first time I know it arrived as it popped up on instagram about a week later - no such luck this year.

 

Germany for me this year which also cost £7.20!

An Ethiopian Natural from Montreal roasted in Quebec arrived for me - it's good to see a different coffee as you often see the same naturals doing the rounds of the good European roasters. Lots of fruit and dark choc, I need to tighten the grind a bit though. Third year in a row I have received tasty coffee.

Not seen the package I sent to Germany show up on FB or IG yet, hope it makes it as I put some really good coffee in there. The bag I sent last year never made it online but it didn't get sent back to me either so I'm not too worried, not everyone does social media.

And that the beans are received at the other end. When I see the pictures on the FB page of what some people receive I always feel marginally guilty that I don't make up a whole box of stuff to send along with the beans but then, I think, if it never arrives, then all the stuff just lies around in the international sorting office of undelivered mail.

That's why I opted to send tracked direct from the roaster last year. I know the ones I sent got to the destination.

Gmail promotions folder for me: Hamburg and

Quijote Kaffee OHG

and fortunately spared a Forum rant about the cost of postage to the States or dodgy customs or anything else. Now, given the recipient, even more agonising about what to get?

I decided on a LSOL supplier that's localish to me. The fact they list the cup scores is a bonus.
