    I think this will work out perfectly! Thanks for setting that up. It shows who wants how many, so that helps too!

    BTW...

    We have a naturally caffeine-free coffee! It's actually grown that way as a naturally caffeine-free plant, which means no chemicals used. My wife can't drink a lot of caffeine so that's what she drinks. She's also sensative to it that if she drinks it too late in the day, she won't sleep well. She's literally drank our decaf before bed, I've done it too, and she was able to fall to sleep right away.

    Didn’t know there was a natural decaf.. interesting. Is it a different variety or was it a blend of different plants?

    There are about 4 different single origins, I can't recall all the names at the moment. Because they are rare and semi-seasonal, we don't label as single origins we just call it "Decaf Royale". We rotate through them every so often.

    We're looking to write an article on it soon, as there isn't much info out there. The decaf plant was barely discovered back in 2004, so relatively new compared to most other coffees.

    Decaf coffee is like non alcoholic beer. Useless as teats on a boar hog. Just my opinion mind you. Everybody’s got one. :D
    I had to give up smoking and drinking, but so far I’m hanging onto my caffeine buzz every morning.:Doctor:

    I agree! 3 to 5 cups a day can actually be really healthy for us!

    Although, some people cant consume caffeine so we're glad we can offer an alternative for people to get their coffee in while still being able to have a great tasting cup of coffee. :D

    FYI:

    We are Certified Organic by the CCOF... lightyears beyond standard USDA Organic. And a Veteran Owned & Operated Company.

    So since it's independence day you really should be super USA today and vote above!

    I checked the link and don't see anything that looked like it was a blend made for MA.

    Sorry - went back and looked at this thread and there wasn't a bunch of context. Here is the thread on NAM. Essentially @AWD_Rally owns a organic coffee company (and is also a veteran).

    He came up with a idea of creating a coffee blend for those that own MINIs and donate profits to a charity that we the members choose. All the proceeds will go to a charity MA and/or NAM chooses (assuming we can get 100 pre-orders). Thats what it takes for him to run custom labels etc.

    @AWD_Rally - let me know if I missed anything.

    Maybe I missed something, but what charity will get the profits from my purchase?

    Veterans are the big marketing tool these days. People are suckers for companies claiming to give money to veterans. Give me specifics. How much of the profits are going to exactly what registered veteran charities?
