Special offer for those attending the KCBS Banquet! If you commit to buying some of this coffee I will bring it with me to the banquet to save you shipping costs! You can also pay in advance via Paypal or pay me in person. Just let me know when you commit to buy.


Coffee Type: Blend

Coffee Name: Serengeti Blend

Description: Roastin' Ronnie's Serengeti Blend is a bled of coffees from Tanzania, Mexico and Indonesia. The ground coffee aroma includes spice and a bit of leather while the brewed coffee aroma adds nuts. In the cup you'll taste bittersweet chocolate, fruit and nuts. This is a medium body coffee but the body builds as the cup cools.

Availability: 20 bags available immediately. Please limit each order to two bags maximum. This will allow more people to enjoy Roastin' Ronnie's Coffee.

Pricing:

$12/bag (approx. 12 oz weight)

Shipping:

Parcel Post (3-7 days): $8.00 for up to two bags
Priority Mail (2-3 days) (preferred): $10.50 for up to two bags

Priority Mail is preferred because I can get the shipping boxes free from the USPS and delivery is faster, which means that your coffee will be fresher when it gets to you, but it is up to you.

Logistics: Please post your commitment to buy in this thread. I will update the first post in the thread as often as possible and will keep a running tally of commitments so you will know how many bags are still available. Once all available bags are committed I will mark the thread as SOLD OUT.

Once you have committed to buy please send me a PM with your Paypal account information and indicate your choice of shipping method.

Once I receive your Paypal information I will send you an invoice for the amount of your purchase. Check your e-mail! You will have three days to complete the transaction. If you can't pay within three days and haven't notified me, I will re-offer the coffee for someone else to buy. If this happens, I will note this and if it happens a second time you will be put on a list of deadbeats.

Ron, there appears to be a peaberry in the blend, is that the Tanzania Pea Berry? Are we allowed to ask what is in the blend?

But i won't tell you the percentages :-D

Ah, Sulawesi, that explains it, I like Sulawesi. I have never had Oaxacan.

The Oaxacan is nice with a lighter body and some milk chocolate.

Oooooo...can't wait! I'm excited about the Tanz peaberry and Oaxacan being in the blend. The time I had the Oaxacan it was preground from Gevalia...so knowing this shipment will be freshly roasted and whole bean, (And how gooooooooood the Holiday Blend is :-D), well, as I said. Can't wait!

Oh, Michele commented this morning while drinking our current batch that she wished we could afford to get such quality ALL the time.:thumb::thumb:

I received mine and had a chance to try some.

I don't have any technical coffee-ese jargon to offer, but WOW!, what a pleasant coffee to sit down and really enjoy.

Thanks, Ron!

Everyone I have shared my Holiday Blend with has absolutely loved it, as do I!:thumb: My wife thinks it is stinky though (she is not a coffee fan, it is one of her flaws that I overlook). It's nothing against Ron's stuff, she does not like the smell of any coffee, but tends to put up with the smell of burnt roasts, like the store bought French or Italian roasts. I told her at least it is not the cat butt coffee.:heh: That can't smell too great!:heh:

Are we ever going to get an offer for cat butt coffee?

I'll take Wow! :-D thanks for the feedback, Tim!

I can get some, but do you really want it? It's incredibly expensive and to me it isn't that special.

BTW, gang, I still have a couple of bags of the highly acclaimed Serengeti Blend available!

On second thought, since you said it's not worth it (I'm aware it's priced ridiculously), I'll pass. Honestly...I'd be plenty happy just drinking the blend I have now.:thumb: I'm all about getting the world-class quality for the buck, but without getting to the point where you're just throwing gobs of money to get a small return.
