Posted Fri Nov 2, 2012, 2:52pm Subject: Coffee Clubs???
I want to give a coffee club membership or something along those lines, as a gift. To a man who has been supporting his wife through breast cancer, for the last year. Whom has a for coffee <3 I have looked around on the Internet for coffee clubs that are out there, but they're pretty generic and what type of coffee they offer through the club. Looking for something more along the lines of a club that offers different types of coffee from different regions supporting different coffee and not just Offering their namebrand coffee. Is there such an club?? Thank you any ideas Much appreciated!!

While not custom roasted coffee, I can offer the names of two very good coffee clubs that will be less expensive and yet still offer a good selection of varietals. One is "Community Coffee" out of New Orleans, the other is "Gevalia" which is from one of the Scandinavian countries I believe. Both offer good value and a decent coffee. Just Google them for their website.

Depends upon what you want. And what you want to spend.
Gocoffeego is a supporter here I think and provides coffee from about a dozen (maybe a bit less) top quality roasters. I've never looked at the clubs but if it gives you a variety to try, I'd go for it.
I did a fairly expensive one out of SF for a few months, gave it as a gift too, and what I liked was being able to try different coffees and not just one roaster.
I don't recommend doing a single roaster club without trying their coffee first. It would be worth ordering a couple of pounds to see if you like how they roast before doing a club.
