Sorry, I'm hooked on Texas Coffee Traders. They have so many varieties of fresh beans, will roast to order, and blend to taste. For me, it's a delicious exploration into the many mysterious dark regions of coffee flavor. And you can always depend on their being fresh and perfectly roasted.
It's a feel-good experience for another reason, too. Texas Coffee Traders buys Free Trade coffee, meaning that those who grow the beans in other parts of the world receive adequate compensation - unlike that inferior stuff sold by the big distributors.
Coffee Traders sells the exotic stuff at very fair prices. That's why you can have it in the best restaurants in town and why I buy it for myself. It pleases my taste buds, my conscience and my bank account.
Starbucks is for beginners! I'm a connoisseur. I find the aromatic coffees from Texas Coffee Traders delightful!
Pros: Quality, Variety, Customizing
