Topic: $10 a Pound - was - Tom's Monkey Blend (21 lines)
1) From: Jerry Procopio
Like everyone else, I give quite a bit of coffee away to friends.  Four 
ounces here, four ounces there ... maybe a half pound sometimes. 
Especially since I started using my RK Drum.  But I also have a few (up 
to 9 now) "subscribers" that have committed to buying at least 1 lb. per 
month.  I charge them $9 a lb.($1.00 off).  For other customers I charge 
$10 for regular, $11 for decaf.  I sell my Mokha-Java blend (which is 
Yirg, Java, Kenya and a tease of Guatemalan) for $12 and keep getting 
requests for more.  Remember, your coffee is "special" and whether they 
appreciate it or not, it's probably the best coffee they ever had. 
Don't give it away at bargain prices.
Jerry
