Sure and thus one can see how one could object to the view that it is easy to find coffee roasted to ones preference.

If I get my jit supply chain wrong I usually have to get to the Joe pro shop.

But isn't that the Joe you were referring to upthread, when you said:

 

Grumpy and Joe are not good.

 

 

I guess the problem with "our" jit supply chain (finally, some initials which I actually know what they stand for!) is that it is totally out of our, and our supplier's, control.

 

That Counter Culture delivery, which I just received this past week, seems to arrive very promptly (small sample, I know), but your're able to tell them when you want shipment.

I got mine on the 19th. Less of a big deal for me, though – I just fill in with Colonna Nespresso pods when I've messed up my supply chain, and I'm pretty happy with the geisha pods I'm using now.

 

BTW, if you're looking for a Nordic roast in the city, Paper Coffee often stocks La Cabra – though I'm not sure whether they got their New York based roasting operation set up.


I didn't tip at Per Se either.

(I have no idea what "jit" stands for, BTW.)

Wouldn't expect a lawyer to understand modern manufacturing/working capital management. Not like us salt of the earth financiers.

Of course THIS month's shipment was right on time.

 

(I think this same thing happened last December.  So I guess the problem is December.) (It makes sense that mail would be slow in December so near the North Pole.)
