I go through bags of coffee like they’re candy. Not a day has gone by in years where I’ve gone without at least one cup of java. Which presents a bit of an inconvenient problem: the need to buy coffee beans so often.
The other issue with being a coffee addict who lives outside a metropolitan area is the lack of choice. I could hit up a bunch of supermarkets and still only find a handful of stale coffee bean brands. What if I want better?
