Free Coffee Beans!!!
To celebrate the launch of Len’s Espresso Blends we are offering a free sampling of 1 pound of both of our espresso blends to 25 fellow Coffee Geeks of good standing.
The first 25 senior members in the lower 48 states with a minimum of 350 posts who respond to this post will be sent one pound each of Blend #5 & Len’s F.T.O. (fair trade organic) at NO COST.
All that we ask is that you let me know what you think of the espresso as you enjoy it…how does it compare to other top espresso blends…how does it compare to your own preferred espresso blend…etc. Tell me about the taste…the mouth feel…the crema…the aftertaste…etc.
Hello Len. I would love to try them. I have a vintage La Pavoni Lever (euro config), and also a KA Proline. I will use it in both and provide you my input.
I also wish you the best of luck in this venture.
I will email you my mailing address.

Looks good Len, I'd love to participate. Unfortunately, work tends to have me circling the country during the summer months - sans espresso machine. I'll buy a pound of both though as things get back to normal for me, blend #5 sounds right up my ally.
As someone with an autistic nephew I especially appreciate your contribution to the work programs of the handicapped.
Our Labels It is appropriate to mention a word about our labels. The labels used by our roaster (La Prima) have always looked, to us, to be a bit crude being off-center and/or crooked. Why not use pre-printed bags with machine applied labeling? The labels may not look picture perfect but they are applied by Achieva - western Pennsylvania's largest provider of comprehensive services and supports for children and adults with disabilities - thereby providing meaningful work for some of the city's intellectually disabled citizens. We have decided to to continue this source of labeling and are proud to be one of Achieva's customers.
It's great that you not only consider the livelihood of those who grow our coffee, by buying Fair Trade, but that you also consider your fellow countrymen as well. Good on you.
