Bids for Coffee Kids – Weeks Two and Three Results

Our little home roasters’ auction to benefit Coffee Kids has just finished its third week.  We didn’t have a furious round of last-second bidding, but we did get a good excuse why one of our organizers didn’t bid at the last minute–he fell asleep.

Our second and third weeks matched the success of the first week–each week pulled in more than the retail value of the items donated.  We raised $1487 during the second week, and $1599 for the third.  That brings our three-week total to $4895!  It appears our bidders continue to demonstrate the generous spirit shown by all of our donors.

Week Four lots are now open, including a coffee table book filled with the espresso photos of one of Green Coffee Buying Club’s members, Shaun Taylor.  Shaun has always graced us with his espresso and life journeys, most of which are marked by his keen photographic eye.  Check out his photo blog for some examples of his journey.   There are another eighteen items up for bid, and this is also the last week to bid on our month-long items, including a Hottop coffee roaster, a Behmor coffee roaster, and training sessions from Trish Rothgeb and Nick Cho of Wrecking Ball Coffee Roasters.    Please visit our hosts at the Green Coffee Buying Club to check out the lots.  Bid early, Bid often!

  1. Why visitors still use to read news papers when in this technological globe all is available on net?
