Morning Ed, I haven't done any green coffee hoarding yet but am hoping the supplies don't end up like the toilet paper isles!

Hi Mark:

Your website looks great, clean and easy to navigate.

The only thing I would strongly suggest that you do is put up information up about the beans you are selling.

There is zero information to allow me to make a decision:

1. where did the beans come from, what farm, what alltitude?

2. how were they roasted, what type of roaster was used?

3. how was the cupping, just a few words about the cup I do not believe is enough if you are the roaster of the beans.

4. perhaps you could put up a few pictures of your roaster, your roasting area as people like to see how it is all done.

5. do you sell greens to home roasters?

without overloading your customers, you have a nice web space to really let yourself shine and you should take advantage of that.

take a look over at Sweet Marias and take a look at some of the types of comments that Thom and staff us in their presentation of beans.


Just a couple suggestions; I would take down the roaster picture where it shows bicycles and other unrelated household items, etc. It takes away from the professional look of the site. The dog picture is nice, maybe put it at the very end of your picture scroll.

Hi Mark,
My 2 centavos; Step up to the next weebly package so you can have your own favicon, instead of weebly's.
Beyond that, I would have to know a lot more about the who's and whats to make any suggestions.
Keep digging, maybe post a few bits about who you're most interested in connecting with.
Cheers, Scott
are we all looking at the same website?

I do not see and did not see any pics of household items...

a dog???

The pics in question are in the home section at the bottom.

I agree on it being clean and easy to navigate. For my 2 or 3 cents, find someone who's a good wordsmith to tidy up the grammar and punctuation in "Our Story".

One more thing to nit-pick about. Try for a sharper photo of your Probat and one with more beans in the cooling tray.

hi everyone, after the good feedback I have received I have made a few changes to my site, I also realized some images may have had copyright issues so I changes some, also a roaster picture gallery.
I got a friend and English teacher to help with punctuation and wording ( a bit embarrassing) I plan to add a short roasting/de-stoning video in the week
thanks for evryones help.
