If it comes from a known, trustworthy source such as Klatch, Intelly, Barefoot, Kean etc....... I would not worry too much. For example Mike at Klatch spends a good part of the year out finding sources for the coffee he sells and he has a solid rep to uphold, If on the other hand you get a spam email touting a deep discount if you also buy a pound of K. L. along with a special lot of Kona .... I would be a little cautious. Just saying :D
In real life, my name is Wayne P. Anything I post is personal opinion and is only worth as much as anyone else's personal opinion. YMMV!
