Yep - I got the email this morning that it has shipped. The email right after from the USPS with the tracking number is especially helpful, since this order contains more than just coffee. It's nice to make sure I arrive home before my wife that day so I can move the box inside before she notices...

ahhhhh the dangerous game hahahahaha. I've played that many times... usually when I add even more Comets to my lifetime supply. Speaking of which, I should go place another order

Thanks for the order!

As a side note, I have a few ideas that we can hopefully bring to the market soon-ish. These are exciting times for BirdieFuel!

When stumbling on to the tournament this past weekend, the early guys started teeing off at 7am, and the folks in the pavillion were still setting up. I could easily see someone at a BirdieFuel table pouring coffee to some grateful volunteers and early morning golfers. If that is the kind of thing you are looking to do, I'd love to help. I can just imagine everyone there (who is already into disc golf) saying, "There's a disc golf coffee? I need to check that out!"

That's definitely in the plans. We need to increase our profits a little more before we can start the more ambitious plans we have... but we definitely have some fun ideas! I love giving back to the sport that has given so much to me. And tourney volunteers are criminally underappreciated in my opinion. Nobody appreciates them until they are gone.

Just got in Dogleg and Road Trip. Both are labeled "light" roast but I would consider them both to be a medium roast both in flavor and in color. Taste wise they are nothing to right home about and to me are just run of the mill coffee's. Not bad by any means and miles better then folders and starbucks but nothing that I would buy again. I hate to say it but as a coffee lover I think this might be the last time I order some birdie fuel. I like what you guys are doing and that you are supporting the pros and are coming up with some good products but for me its quite easy to find a higher quality coffee for the same price in other places weather that is local or online. I also dont like that there are not roasted on dates on the packaging. Not a big deal for most coffee drinkers but it matters to me.

Keep up the hard work guys and thanks for the coffee

Thanks for the honest feedback! After we get a little more established, I hope to release a “Black Label” series that has some exquisite high-end gourmet roasts.

Its been an interesting journey thus far.

We know there are cheaper, more accessible coffees out there but we hoped to strike a cord with premium blends and a penchant for supporting favorite pros.

So far...so good.

But we need to keep the momentum going so if you have any requests, suggestions or comments, let me know!
