For anyone else interested gourmetGR is selling Greek coffee and other gourmet items at very reasonable BTC prices, soon to have an e-shop. He did not require escrow he simply sent items and agreed to receive payment if I liked them  Grin this shows trust in the BTC community, this kind of trust should not be abused as it's what sets us apart from the rest.

Here's the original thread:

Here's my order as promised  Grin

I live in the UK so my main source of Amercian chocolate is Reese's overpriced in the shops or a full range at a local industrial unit/shop called American Soda where prices are a little more reasonable. I do enjoy American chocolate but I also enjoy trying different tastes from different countries.

Your Reese's are overpriced? I live in the US, how much do they cost you?

Is it because of shipping or just because they want a lot of profit?

I would imagine they cover their shipping costs and add profit margin on top of that so yeah, little bit of both

Just adding the following feedback from the original thread https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=946003.0

Just wanted to let everybody know that I received my coffee and treat from gourmetGR and I loved it! I am a big fan of coffee in the first place, so it was fun to try and make it the authentic Greek way which was different than my usual routine. Their international shipping was actually very fast, and I find the prices for their coffee to be fair and not overly expensive.

Overall it was a good experience, I got to try something new for Bitcoin, and I am helping a fellow Bitcoiner out buying my coffee from him rather than a corporation like Walmart. Will be placing another order soon!

Thanks!

Got my package today!   I will be having Greek coffee and snacks this afternoon.  Thanks, great service!

Previous Order paid via:  https://blockchain.info/tx/07a480bbf2d03a2297b411f14594ffb22d946b81760233cda5da447e6076a87f

This afternoon the guys in our shop had a great break with coffee and various treats from Greece.  It is a lot of fun to have something different.

I am up for another shipment, perhaps tea instead of coffee this time as the coffee I have will last, and double the random treats.

Same shipping address and pm me the cost.

Cheers!

That's great dear and I hope you enjoyed your coffee  Wink

Even starbucks gift cards can be bought via bitcoins but one should go through a trusted buyer to be on a safe side.

one more feedback from another customer  Wink

Got my coffee in today, really good stuff.  Got a nice flavor to it, strong but not overpowering.  Also got some of the chocolate thrown in which was really good.  Hope to order more soon Smiley
