Coffee Review- Colombian Supremo from Porto Rico Importers

The company: Porto Rico Importers based in NYC. Been in business a long time. Offer wide variety of beans cheaply. Also sells a wide selection of tea. Has weekly specials on coffee. Has internet, phone, and fax ordering options. Not a huge operation with an amazon type polish to it. Internet ordering is basically a secured email, not a cart system. Ordering was easy enough, no acknowledgement. Email sent back with final order total within 36 hours.

The coffee: Beans have a strong fragrance to them. They have a matte caramel colored finish to them. Caramel notes in the taste as well. Not a blend. Reminds me of Peter's Blend which isn't a surprise since Peter's Blend is a third Columbian Supremo. Lacks some of the structure of Peter's blend. Smooth, seems a little more acidity than Peter's Blend but by no means acidic.
I would order this blend again.

Price of coffee: They have weekly specials. Columbian Supremo runs $3.99/pound on sale. Regular price varies but is often 5.99/lb.

Shipping: $7.28 to ship 3 pounds. $7.58 to ship 5 pounds. Uses UPS ground. Took 5 Business days - ordered during their Spring sale and they warn that it can take up to 2 weeks.

Packaging: Shipped in a box with biodegradable packing peanuts (no chemical fumes which is a plus). Bagged in plastic lined paper bags- not vacuum packed.

Never mix Alkali Metals and Water. I'm not sure about Alkali metals and dildos though...

This is fucking cool.

Anybody for some Francium?


This is great, too.- Potentially NSFW. Language and gratuitous images of dildos (nonsexual).
