Many of those "BROWN" delivery guys need to know that we are ordering green 
coffee and the goodies that go with it and not  XXX stuff!  You are 
getting grins because his mind is in the gutter!

All of this is funny because along with “Sweet Marias” it also mentions coffee roasting on the box!  J  Whenever I receive my shipment at work I always get a text message or phone call saying “you ordered MORE COFFEE?”

I've had the same problem with our nanny, who usually is the one to get the
packages.  The box does say, in smaller letters, something about home coffee
roasting.  The "Sweet Maria" part makes it look like something ... uh,
different.
I've thought about proclaiming, "YES, my new COFFEE BEANS are here!" when I
see the box.  That will just fuel a "cover-up" theory.  Let them think what
they want.

From what I understand, there is a porn site named sweetmaria.com.

To Tom's dismay, there *used* to be a porn site with that name.  However, 
Tom now owns the sweetmaria.com domain, and it re-directs to sweetmarias.com.
I'm actually curious about whether he took legal action, or the 
sweetmaria.com domain simply became available at some point.

You could just tell the truth about the shipments.  Say something 
like, "I get sooo much enjoyment out of these packages from Sweet 
Marias."  :)

Or say that "When I get too much of this stuff from Sweet Marias I get kind
of sweaty and just shake all over!"

Actually I got my neighbor across the street roasting who is our local 
police cheif, so I love asking him If i can get a 'couple of grams of 
columbian" from him ;-)

At my age, I'd be *flattered* to have the UPS guy, the nanny, the co-workers
or anyone else assuming that "Sweet Maria's" wasn't a coffee site--of
course, they'd probably figure it was a source for bulk anti-Alzheimer's or
arthritis drugs....

I know Mike but the delivery guys/persons most 
likely think the coffee bit is a ruse!

I find nothing out of the ordinary when someone confuses the potentially
erotic 'Sweetmarias' name and coffee, since basic primal urges and great
coffee are in the same category .
