At tournaments would sell good, especially with payout, but I don't see a year 'round business in disc golf coffee. I'm lazy, send me a case of 120 K-cups!

But how does the birdie scale on the labels correlate to the established 4 number system?

I have to think that you would absoloutley be the best seller on the car lot! I'm not kidding

You have an uncanny ability to put a spin on things no matter what, pun intended

Good luck with venture! Sounds fun

Lol thanks!

I just love to sell different product than what the market has to offer. RDG was a ton of fun for me but the market is so flooded that I wanted to try something else.

Coffee it is!

At the risk of being "That Guy"I just hope you're not necessarily marketing to too small a segment of the population.

Obviously, coffee appeals to a wide variety of people. Anyone could buy and enjoy this. Just can't help but think branding and marketing it like this may do more harm than good. How does having a such a limited primary market affect your volume, and ultimately the cost to consumers? For the most part, DG'ers aren't known for having oodles of disposable income.

If your coffee can't be competitively priced due to low volume, you might just price your product beyond what most of your primary market is willing to spend.

Ball Golfers on the other hand... more people, and typically willing and able to spend more.
Maybe Birdie Fuel can have a dual target market of disc golfers and bird watchers.
