Okay, so I’m reading the latest newsletter from PT’s coffee. They go on about how they won exactly what they wanted – two batches of Esmeralda Especial. After having read sweetmaria’s blog post about it, and viewing the auction results, PT’s Esmeralda offering page is a little bit of a shocker. At an average price of $12.58 per pound they’re selling 12 oz roasted for $32.50. Taken into account they will likely roast 16 oz to get 12 oz of roasted product. That’s almost a $20.00 profit. Oh well, I’m just glad I roast my own coffee, and will seek to get a pound of batch #2 from sweetmaria’s. I may even decide to do a test between PT’s batch 10 and sweetmaria’s batch 10 that I’ll roast myself. Of course, then I’ll be broke.
I’m probably being a little harsh, but I guess even though they have amazing baristas, I’ve just never been super impressed by their coffee. It’s just an opinion. Maybe they can change my mind in the future..
