" For those who have enquired about pricing, we sell our beans & ground coffee at very reasonable, equitable prices to our vendors.  "

Don't mean to be difficult, but that is a non-answer to the question about prices.   What is the range at your retail location at SuperLake?

 

 

I can only guesstimate, Gringal, as next week is their first delivery, since their management shake-up. I would say ca. $150-$165 pesos/pound (US $8-$9 / CAD$10-$12)

It may be that SuperLake will be setting the retail price and they do not want to talk for SuperLake.

Once again, Tiny, you are spot on. I know that SuperLake has a considerable mark-up on products, but I expect their shelf price to be somewhere in the range indicated in my response to Gringal.

The name would be a non starter for me...regardless of all its claims. I guess you did not have a focus group before you came up with that "ugly" name

It's not so much that it's "ugly", it's that it reeks of smartass and juvenile.

When I first arrived in Mexico in early 2010 I tried the fresh roasted coffee at the store/cafe on Hidalgo in Chapala. Over the period of a year I endured all the problems he had with his roaster and finally I went back to Kirkland 100% Colombian Coffee which was about the same price and has proven to be very consistent in both roast and grind at about 195p per kilo currently..Maybe not the best coffee but consistent for me. I also don't like the logistics of maintaining a supply at SL of a coffee roasted in La Manzanilla will be difficult to say the least. Then again the only thing I like to be consistently great is beer. Has anyone seen Bohemia IPA recently? It is hard to find.

That's exactly why it caught my eye and I'll try it. Is it crass? Sure, but it got the product noticed and isn't that intention? GL to them!

I enjoy the Kirkland House medium blend in the blue bag, tried the Columbian and was too weak... IMHO... This with an Aeropress coffee maker makes a GREAT cup of coffee
