Since a few of us now have subscriptions, I thought it might be worth starting a thread where we can compare notes.   Aptly, this month's package came just as I was finishing the local blend I bough

Have you seen this McDonald's ad? I sort of love it.     (I typoed that second sentence as "I sort of live it" at first. That is also a true statement.)

It must be the Counter Culture, ordered like 3- 4 days ago, and delivered yesterday.

 

Now I'm wondering; should I just switch to monthly deliveries from Counter Culture on the 15th, and George Howell at the beginning of the month?  I'm thinking 2 bags from each, timely delivered, could hold me over, month by month.

But while Tim's coffee is certainly superb, it's not leaps and bounds better than that from Counter Culture or my local, Grumpy, or Joe.
