Coffee Exchange, Fall 2019

There has been a bunch of interest in doing this again. So here we go. The signups are going to run longer than preferred. I will close to new entrants after I get back from vacation around the 21st. At that time I will give 24 hour notice. See the rules below:

Ground Rules

1. Open to all members, but Coffee Grinders need to jump through a few more hoops. If you are a coffee Grinder post here and send me a PM. We will have to work something out to make sure your not a fraudster, nothing crazy though I promise.

2. After the conclusion of this you must send your recipient at least 1 bag/container of a roast, 12-16oz. You can send more if you want.

3. You may sign up for more than one exchange.

4. Exchange will end around September 21st . I will give 24hrs notice as to when submissions close. Assignments will be up by the following Tuesday.

5. This is a A-B-C-A type of exchange. Which means the person you are sending to may not be the person sending to you.

6. Sender is responsible for all shipping costs.

7.If you want to participate please have your post include the following information:
-If you have a shipping restriction (IE: only shipping to continental US)
-If you wish to participate in more than one exchange.

After the closure of submissions all participants will be matched up based on the info provided. Participants will be responsible to reach out to their recipients to get addresses and communicate anything else needed.

If you think something else needs to be addressed please let me know.

I am in

I have no restrictions.
Participating in only one exchange.

I am in. One exchange and I prefer to stay within the US for shipping.

I am in!
No shipping restrictions.
If possible, decaf for me as my doc doesn't want me having caffeine.
I can do more than 1 exchange.
Looking forward to this! So much fun.

I find it funny that Coffee Grinders can't get coffee shipped to them to grind at home.

Its not so much they can't. Just I am wary of someone wanting to participate without history. Really all they have to do is message me and it shouldn't be an issue. So far though no one has attempted it.

In. No restrictions, fine with more than one.

I'm in.

No shipping restrictions.
Whole bean please.
Open to more than one exchange.

I understand the reasoning. I just like how their tag stops them from, well, doing said tag of grinding coffee.

Overall I want this to be fun and delicious experience for everyone. So far the 2 times I have done this, I have really enjoyed it and I hope others have two. With that in mind I don't want anyone who is interested to be left out. If you are interested in doing the trade, but something like needing to do it a little earlier or later is holding you back, just send me a message and we will work it out. Currently the timing of it is to benefit myself and a couple people who expressed a desire to do the exchange within a time frame that works for them, but mostly me.

Its the same with Coffee Grinders. Just reach out and we can take care of it. The only way to move past that is to post more. This should be a nice thing for all members to participate in.

I am posting this to make sure people know the rules are set in an editable forum field, not stone. I want to work with you.

My ears are burning. I'm in but I need to put the package in the mail NLT midnight UTC on the 21st due to work commitments.

Due to my lack of proximity to the rest of the forum (Australia) I'd prefer only one exchange (and I understand if no one is keen on the shipping to send one back)

No restrictions (though the beans I have access to down under would be better suited to Espressos)

You were not the only one. I was just trying to make sure it's clear.

Due to the nature of shipping to Australia is there anyone who wants to volunteer for that trade. If no one does I will. I have no problem shipping it there.

If it's too hard (or expensive) don't worry about it. I'm still trying to figure out what I need to do to send coffee into the US - apparently I need to provide some sort of prior advice to the FDA.

I have shipped items to Oz before.

Hey! I love coffee. Would love to share and enjoy!
Prefer without extra flavorings (e.g. hazelnut, French vanilla, etc.).
Prefer US only if possible.

I have no problems shipping to anywhere in the world.

Sounds like there are logistics involved in shipping to places like Australia, and I'd like to know what they are before I say I'm happy to do it.

Alyosius - exchanging with me, they are sending something to me and then I will ship them something in return when they are back!

Exchange closes tommorow. If there needs to be a change let me know.
