    I was thinking that a good gift idea for my wifes parents would be a coffee/tea of the month club membership. I was looking on-line, but it doesn't appear that the franchises Im familiar with offer anything like that. Does anyone out there have any suggestions or recomdations on companies that offer this service?

    Very good coffee, decent prices and some great promo deals for new customers.

    Baltimore Coffee and Tea may or may not, but they DO have great coffee, a vast selection of tea, and gift certificates ... you can order via 800 #, online, etc.

    We get Gevalia. And we got the free coffee-maker-caraffe thingy. It's kind of a chinsy coffee maker as far as coffee makers go.. but it works. They now send you one with a timer on it, which I wish I had on mine. I'd recommend the black model since my white one is kinda grungy looking being stained with coffee.

    The coffee is good, though.

    I have used Better Beans to send coffee to my mother for the past 3 years. I am very happy with them and my mother says that the coffee is fantastic. She is getting the World Club version.

    Laters,

    Ah yes Green Mountain Coffee is excellent as well. I grew up in VT and still have family there who send me packets from time to time. Blueberry Coffee? Yup! It is yummy too!

    Laters,

    Yep, especially if you like flavored coffees, I don't think there's any better than GMCR. Many coffees "smell" like their flavor, but just "taste" like regular coffee. When you have GMCR Blueberry or Egg Nog coffee, or my favorite...Pumpkin Spice [​IMG] , you can actually taste it.

    And their non-flavored blends are very good, too. I love their Organic French Roast and Lake & Lodge varieties.

    I'm sipping on a mug of Peet's Sumatra right now. My first experience with this brand. It ain't cheap but it sure kicks the crap out of Starbucks. Mmmmmm, good. [​IMG]
