I can't vouch for this company at all, or for the freshness of their roast, but it seems like a pretty good deal on both Kona and JBM.

Kona Link (http://stores.ebay.com/Gold-Star-Coffee/100-Kona-Coffee-City-Roast-/_i.html?afepn=5335869999&campid=5335869999&PID=1225267&_fsub=20878788&_sid=7350605&_trksid=p4634.c0.m322)

The Slickdeals.net link where I found this. (http://slickdeals.net/forums/showthread.php?t=2665089)


Let me know if you guys think this is legit JBM, as I've always wanted to try some and may have to splurge for a pound or two.

Hrmm...pretty good prices, and people are saying it's some good coffee, I'd definitely consider picking some up.

As a general rule, you are right. However, looking at their feedback, and the fact that from slickdeals it looks like it could be legit, I wanted to see if anyone had heard of them over here.

Decent pricing but you can order direct from the farm for a few dollars more. I have been very happy with all the coffee I have bought from Smith Farms. http://www.smithfarms.com/index.htm There are many other small farms on Kona who sell direct, I feel much better supporting the farmers than a middle man. :2

Smith Farms is awesome, and for supporting the local farmers; instant karma's gonna get you.:tu

I've heard Smith Farms is great... but for JBM, that doesn't exactly help.

Their website could use an update though.

Man, trying to buy good coffee like JBM, from e-bay, is just wrong. Of all the times, you'd want guaranteed quality and freshness, it would be on a coffee like this. PASS!

I would argue that quality is not mutually exclusive with ebay. Sure, you have to be more careful, but this ebay seller looks to be a legit company.

The KEY for really good coffee is freshness. This E-bay for coffee just doesn't work for me.

They all usually look legit on Ebay and a few are.

I'm no stranger to ebay and scammers on ebay.

That being said, from what I can tell, this is a legit coffee company and they say each order is roaster no more than a week before it ships.

Other than the fact the company also sells on ebay, no one has given any reason that they shouldn't be trusted (their online prices are quite a bit more than their ebay prices).
