VB Kaffee - consolidated UK shipment test

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

some of you have followed my quest of late in the Road to Roasting thread and subsequently have shown interest in trying out our beans.

 

I'm very grateful to having received such great attention, kind words, advice and thumbs up from many of you as we've progressed! As well, I highly value the honest feedback from members who had been sampled to date (you know who you are!). Therefore, I did quite some research and requested numerous offers from parcel services to get those beans over the Channel. All my efforts led down the same blind alley... super expensive. But there's light at the end of the tunnel! After getting cleared by @Glenn, here's my suggestion to bring costs down:

 

- up to 20 members (my first group buy) may

- order between 15 and 20kg total

- at €24 or €26 per kilo if you order by 500g bags (£20.54 or £22.25 today)

- at €26 or €28 per kilo, respectively, if you choose 250g bags (£22.25 or £23.96 today)

- through our freshly set up online shop and

- choose "CFUK consolidated shipment" for €4.50 (£3.85 today)

 

What's so special?

- we'll send one big box containing all smaller (and already stamped) boxes to one trustworthy member who unpacks and posts out individual parcels immediately

- the way I've calculated transit time, it could very well be there within a week from roasting date. Remember, you're taking part in a test so please don't shoot me if it took 8 or 9 days!

- we pay for the big shipment. Only domestic RM postage is on you

- watch out for a fun little goodie

- we pack an additional 500g special surprise bag as a compensation for the trustworthy member

- organising this group buy, we are able to offer you fine Austrian beans at a far more favourable price than through an individual order

 

Some more info:

- at 1 kilo batches we're a true mirco roastery :)

- despite the online shop being all English, product labels will be in German (for an exotic experience :D )

- feel free to take a look the online shop over here, but please do not place any orders until we've reached the total minimum quantity of 15 kilos

- this well hidden shop link is the only way to get there, we have not yet launched it, officially! Your chance to be a VB buyoneer :D

- if this test is a winner, we might very well do it more often in the future - thank you in advance!

 

 

Looking very much forward to this!!

Excitement ahead!

Cheers,

Matt

Count me in for:

 

1 x PNG, Sigri AA 500g - Light Roast

1 x PA, La Berlina Estate 500g - Medium Roast

 

I've not been around for long (so not sure if I fall under the description of "trusted member"), but if no-one else expresses an interest, I am happy to receive at work and immediately ship same-day (we have a fairly large amount of outgoing post).


Espresso: Quick Mill Verona

Grinder: Niche Zero

Brewed: Hario V60, French press

It's a Cold War thing & since I'm quite partial to donuts it sticks in my mind. Edited by ashcroc

9.5 kilos so far - wow!

Thank you everybody

 

I may add that I've just talked to @dfk41 who wishes for his La Berlina to be a bit darker than medium. As we're roasting 1kg at a time and have a suitable profile ready for this bean, not a problem to do so for others as well if ordering 2x 500g
