Seriously, it’s that good. I don’t think they even have a “bad” coffee under their roof. I've tried them all by now and have never been disappointed. Sure I have favorites (the Ethiopian and the Kenyan), but every bag of Beansmith coffee has been awesome, at least in my experience.
I like everything about Beansmith:
They are fast. Some days I place an order before 7 a.m. and drive down there mid-afternoon to pick it up because it’s ready. Thanks, guys! I’m not much of an Internet shopper: I like to meet the people I spend money with face-to-face whenever possible.
They are friendly. Seriously, if you like coffee and enjoy talking about it, get down to Beansmith. You will definitely find your match in coffee aficionados. And they share their knowledge; they don’t make you feel dumb for not knowing as much about it as they do. I love the coffee conversations I have down there. I always leave with a smile on my face and bags of coffee in my arms.
They are family oriented. I actually like it that I can’t go down there Saturday because they’re closed. That means they’re at home spending time with their families, i.e., they’ve got the work/life balance thing figured out. That’s a business model I don’t mind supporting.
They know quality. Whatever happens back there when they roast the coffee is a mystery I don’t need to delve into. I only know that when they make the coffee magic happen, they really MAKE THE COFFEE MAGIC HAPPEN. And that’s good enough for me.
Beansmith . . .
Beats the heck out of getting your beans from anyone else!
