I'm really excited about that. I get most of my food at Whole Foods and will get a bag of the CoE if I see it.

This from Yara, La Boheme Cafe, Czech Republic:

So we just participated for the first time in a group buy for Lot #3. As far as I know it will be the first CoE coffee offered in Central and Eastern Europe. Dont have to tell you how excited we are! Obviously there is zero public awareness about CoE program. Well, Specialty Coffee in general is not doing much better;) The market is flooded with tons of Italian brands and its not easy to compete with them ... Anyways, we just organized few coffee events that might shake up our coffee scene at least a bit ... The last one was a public cupping of CoE Rwanda and Columbia samples (yes, all of them:) on the same day as the auction. About 40 people showed up and went through the samples with us. Some of them were truly phenomenal! At the end, it was quite successfull, since we got a 2 pg article about CoE in one of the major food magazines and some publicity within the gastrosphere (5* international hotel chains offering french pressed CoE coffees? I will take it anytime:)
