Bids for Coffee Kids – Week One Results

Posted in coffee roasting, home roasting, roasting with tags , , , , , , , on May 8, 2010 by Chad

Our little home roasters’ auction to benefit Coffee Kids has just finished its first week.  The last hour had a run of furious bidding, with one unlucky soul missing out of a lot by two seconds!

We were hoping for a good turnout for the first week, and we certainly got it!  Our first week lots resulted in bids totaling $1809, which was well over the retail value of the item.  It appears our bidders have latched on to the generous spirit shown by all of our donors.

Week Two lots are now open, including a BUNN STX Home Brewer, a Reg Barber Tamper, 10 lbs. of the 7th Place Guatemala 2009 Cup of Excellence green coffee, and another 16 items.  Please visit our hosts at the Green Coffee Buying Club to check out the lots.  Bid early, Bid often!  Full listing of Week Two lots is below.
