Already part of the larger plan - gotta get our feet wet with what we know best, then expand a little further into the areas we know well. DG is a scene both Jamie and I are heavily involved with and this is a starting point, not an end point....

JCassidy, I have been a fan of what you do, I bought a couple Gilas to show some forumn love. Hell, I bought a Tenacity just to have a Marmoset stamp...even though I knew it was too fast for me.

No more, I say!
As a home roaster and a disc golfer, my jealousy runnuth over my {coffee} cup.

All jokes, aside, good luck.

Thanks for all the support!

The DG market is so packed with disc manufacturers but there is only ONE Birdie Fuel

Nah Thomas unfortunately isn't owned by the original owner.

Tom Charleville, former owner, sold Thomas due to health reasons. He now runs Clipper Coffee.

I run a grocery store and Tom occasionally comes to my store to push Clipper. He even gave me green beans to home roast.

You will not be the first disc golf coffee company. A little history for you:

Kevin and Courtney McCoy started FrizzBeeCafe Coffee in 2008. While it is no longer in business, FrizzBee Cafe offered some specialty blends that had fun names like Hyzer Blend and Birdie Breakfast Brew. They also sponsored some PDGA events. It was excellent coffee!

Birdie Fuel won't be the first DG coffee... It'll be the best DG coffee

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.
Agree with all of this... Specialty coffee is already pretty saturated. Even without attempting to target a niche in a niche market, it would be tough to turn a profit. I dont buy expensive whole bean coffee all the time. Once in a while sure. So, if your product was on the shelf, I would try it. But, I could care less if my coffee has pictures on the package that relate to disc golf. The coffee would have to be better than what is already out there for me to purchase a second time. If this is something you are planning on doing for fun thats one thing. I am highly skeptical that there is any profit to made on coffee that is being marketed to such an incredibly small niche market.

I love DG and coffee! I also agree that half basket/cup logo is the bees-knees!
