I enjoy coffee/tea swaps and really enjoyed the "Coffee Me Up" swap from a few years ago.
Is there any interest in another round?  Maybe make it where you can specify coffee or tea?


I know the original swap said it was restricted to US only because shipping coffee could be problematic but I have looked and haven't found anything specifically saying coffee is an issue shipping from the US to other countries.  Not sure about non-US to non-US country.

I missed the coffee swap but did the tea swap a long while back and really enjoyed it. I'd probably be down for a coffee swap Smiley

This sounds like a lot of fun. ^^ Though I prefer tea, but my boyfriends loves coffee.
Depending on what we have to send I consider to join. If we're requiered to send a mug as well I'd rather not participate since the shipping would be too much.

Id be interested! Would you do coffee accessories or only a mug?

I would absolutely love to have a personal swap! I'm interested in jewelry, soap, and anything that inspires you on my Pinterest

So here is what I was thinking, so that mugs would be optional, since they can be problematic to ship, and if you don't wrap them well then the recipient will be disappointed when they open a package full of shards.

1. 1 bag coffee (12-16oz) or equivalent in tea, hot chocolate, even K-cups, etc (I'm thinking an $8-12  value)
2. A purchased hot drink accessory: so this could be a mug, a tea ball, spoon rest, french press, mug warmer, reuseable K-cup etc. (maybe have a dollar value on this also.  something like $5-10)
3. Three points of crafted items.  some ideas: mug rugs, cup cozies, wall art, recipe book (again you could include a mug here also but it would be optional)


And does anyone know for sure if international shipping of coffee or tea is an issue?

There's been swaps done in the past very similar to this one....I think one was called 'Fill A Mug', some of the 'Keep Me Warm' swaps included hot drinks and accessories...maybe look at some of the previous rounds of swaps like the one you have in mind for info and ideas.
