hi
Anyone try Buzzopolis or other house blends from Whole Latte Love?
What did you think? Any comparisons come to mind?
thanks

I am starting to assume that no one here drinks this coffee, or thinks highly of it.

Sorry, though, that I can't help with that.
Good luck and be patient! ;)

In general the problem I find with buying fresh-roasted coffee over the web is the delay in getting it to me.  Even roasters that are fairly close to me-- such as Gimme! Coffee in Ithaca, NY while I reside in New York City-- still somehow take 7 days to get here by UPS ground.  UPS will actually delay package delivery if it means they don't get paid for faster service.  So UPS ground still takes 7 days from upstate NY, even though it gets to the local holding depot within 2.  (UPS' customers are the people doing the shipping, not the recipient, so they don't really care if the recipient complains, as is often seen in their negative reviews.)

Of course I could pay for faster shipping, but why pay $20 shipping on $20 worth of coffee?  If I ordered more to make it worthwhile, then I wouldn't be using it fast enough for it to be as fresh as I'd like.  So I can wait a week to have coffee that's two weeks from roasting, or I can get something much fresher from a local shop.

I realize this doesn't answer your question about that particular offering, but perhaps it gives insight as to why people aren't responding much about roasted coffee purchased via the web.  I personally roast my own coffee so that solves my particular problem, and I do have fresh-roasted outlets locally that I can visit in a pinch, so I don't have any feedback.

I have had great results in getting coffee quickly from Chriscoffee.com, paradise roasters, and from lacolombe.com
it only takes a few days, and the coffee is still fresh.
still wondering about the WLL house blends that were value priced the last time I looked.
Chriscoffee has free shipping for $50 orders, and it gets to me overnight via normal UPS.
Paradise roasters has a $3 flat rate.
Lacolombe is a little more for shipping.

I have not gotten any thing from WLL.  Check home-barista they might have some postings.

I love my flat rate redbird.  It comes USPOST and is here in 3 days.  But I also try coffee when I am out and about and if they sell their own beans I will almost always buy some.  (and I freeze redbird/blue jag in 1/4 lb vacuum bags in my large freezer that I defrost by hand once a year or so)

that makes no sense how it could take that long with UPS especially same state lol, my local guys roast and ships to my house always within 2 days. And some friends that have ordered out of state from them have been 2-3 days as well, shipped same day as roasted. Plenty of other companies have fast shipping, Paradise is one as mentioned.

7 days for coffee same state..... forget that lol, maybe something about UPS is different up in NY? Heck my machine was shipped from Canada, then NY for customs, and then to my house in South FL within like 3-4 days total I think, and that was with USPS... no idea how they pulled that miracle off lol.

now my thread has been hijacked to a mail order coffee/shipping thread.
No one has said a damn word about the whole latte love house brands of coffee.
are they good, or not?

The silence speaks volumes.  Either nobody has tried Whole Latte Love coffee or they don't have anything constructive to offer.  I didn't even know that they sold their own brand coffee.  

I did a bit of searching and found a reference to Buzzopolis on both CG and H-B, both people trying to dial in their new equipment with this coffee and both quickly moved on to other coffees.

Why don't you give it a try and let us know what you think since you don't seem interested in recommendations for more well known coffees?  Since one of the references to Buzzopolis goes back five years, you'd think there'd be a few more hits on this from fans.

about 10 years ago I used to buy the WLL Malabar Gold.  I really liked it and have a blend/ roast I developed trying to match it using Monsooned Malabar from India, (arabacia not robusta).  Some Bolivian Organic, high grown, very fruity, Sumatran mandhling for a little funk and Colombian Supremo for a rounded buttery finish.  

I take it past second to about 442F.  It has a beautiful gelatinous rusty creama which the WLL Malabar Gold was known for.
