Default Gold Star Coffee selling 100% JBM and 100% Kona on Ebay?

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.

JBM Link

Kona Link

The Slickdeals.net link where I found this.


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.

Ebay is not a source for much of anything Legit!

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.

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

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).
