Eth Nat Yirg Idido roasted yesterday. I dropped some off at a friends coffee shop. In a few days he will brew it and tell me what he thinks. We believe my roasts are better than what we buy.

Coffee Kids Fan
Thank you so much for stopping in to check out our first auction for Coffee Kids. All proceeds go to http://www.coffee..., a group that creates education, health care, micro-credit, and community-based programs for coffee farmers and their families.

There are nearly 40 items for you to choose from below and they will be available at different times throughout May 2009. Remember, all coffee listed is "greens," needing roasting at home.

Opening bids will be $5.00 and bids must be in whole dollar increments.
With one exception, all shipping is free and has been donated by the in kind donor or an HRO member. We arranged this shipping because we want every dollar raised in this auction to go to Coffee Kids.

If there's a particular item you'd like to bid on, please click the link following the description and you'll be taken directly to that auction thread. The 1st six items run the entire month; the remainder run for one week only.

If you're not bidding and would like to make a donation directly to Coffee Kids, click http://www.coffee...
