Offered: Locally Roasted Coffee

This auction is offered in response to a request in the request post.

Offer: This auction is for two individually-packed pounds of coffee of your choice (blends, roast, and grind) from the local-to-me micro-roaster Aduro Bean Micro-roasters, which I will mail to you once the auction closes. (I may have to mail-order them myself, if they don't have the combo you want at the farmer's market I go to, so it may be up to 2-3 weeks.)

I don't drink coffee myself, but my boyfriend is a coffee snob with his own burr grinder and French press and swears by Aduro's beans. We usually pick the coffee up at a nearby farmer's market, but they also do mail-order if you fall in love with it. Check the website linked above for the blends they carry: if you don't like dark, dark coffee, my boyfriend recommends the Nutty Blonde or El Salvador. I cannot guarantee availability of their special reserves. You can get the coffee in whole bean (recommended) or in a variety of grinds if you don't own a grinder.

If you are not in the U.S. please check your country's mailing regulations for foodstuffs before bidding. I cannot be held responsible if the package is confiscated at the border.

Starting bid: $12 (about half the normal selling price for two pounds - if the bidding goes over the cost of directly ordering from them, remember that it's for charity!)

Auction rules here. Note that Buy It Now only applies if no other bids are made. Questions? Contact a mod (see sidebar).

Re: $30. Simon Hanna.
Congratulations! You're the winner of the Aduro Bean coffee!

Please check the website and let me know what two varieties (or variety, if you'd like two packages of the same) you'd like via email, along with your address, and I'll get them sent on!

(If you're not sure what you'd like, let me know what other sorts of things you like and I'll ask the guy for his recommendation.) Don't forget the grind - do you want them whole bean, ground, etc.

The Cowtown Farmer's Market is tomorrow - I'll do my best to get up bright and early and get them! (And if they don't have one or the other there, I'll ask them how I can best get them. XD)
