Since so many people have been asking where BitBrew ships from and how fresh the beans are, I've added an About Page
to the site. Here it is:
BitBrew was launched in May 2011 with the lofty goal of providing high quality coffee exclusively in exchange for bitcoins in order to do its share of sustaining a viable economy with the controversial crypto-currency. As of yet, BitBrew is run solely by one individual (me) known as “edd” at the Bitcoin.org forums and elsewhere. Located in San Antonio, Texas, BitBrew gets its coffee from a local roaster and ships anywhere within the contiguous 48 United States at no additional charge. Beans are usually roasted on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays and shipped out the next day, with delivery time varying according to the distance your order must travel.
For example, Ian's order was placed on Thursday, so his beans will be roasted on Monday and shipped out on Tuesday to ensure the freshest possible product.
Of course, if sales skyrocket, I may be able to persuade my roaster to work everyday.
