Dumb question here.  By "no commercial" do you mean just no nationally sold products?   I understand about no Starbucks, as they totally all over the place.   We have local coffees- sold in our local supermarkets, but not necessarily beyond Louisiana that I know of.  Would these be okay?  I would consider them commercial -- one company will ship to other areas, for the locals who have moved, etc.  Or does it have to be something not sold in stores at all?

I am not the organizer but I would say that as long as you can't get it everywhere/anywhere you travel it would be good to send.  The whole idea seems to be trying different things that arent in your hometown.  That's just my opinion though.  Smiley

Oh no - I hope it can be stuff bought in stores, because I was thinking of some nice tea blends in some local markets I have seen, and locally roasted coffee blends.  I can understand not internationally known brands, like Tetley, Starbucks, etc.

Really? No local coffee? I guess living in Washington State spoils me, and makes me think that there are a gazillion independent roasters/coffee shops all over the place.

Don't remind me! We just moved to IA from WA last year and I seriously miss the coffee shacks on every corner...
We literally have 4 drive thru coffee places in an area of 150,000 people or so-sad isn't it?? And 2 of them are Starbucks which I don't even care for after living in WA!

In Madison, we have this great roaster that sells different coffee blends in our local co-ops. It's fine if the coffee is sold in your local stores. Just as dharma_rebel said...no starbucks or maxwell house, stuff like that!

Woo...I am so gald to see the great turn out already.

I am totally addicted to coffee, this should be a fun swap and with the points on low side a rather easy one!

Is only being able to send coffee maker (drip) coffee okay? Local coffee here is really expensive so there is no way would be able to whole beans and tea/instant coffee has no flavor.

I was just thinking it was weird that a couple of people don't have local coffee places then I looked at your profile and saw where you live, Hawaii.  Then I just became jealous, especially on a dreary rainy day here in Michigan.

Well, I am in Ireland so no cool local coffee brands - there used to be shop here that sold flavoured coffee but not anymore. But getting interesting tea shouldn't be a problem:) There is at least one local tea company.

Good question about beans vs. ground.  Around here most of the local stuff is already ground, though I can purchase beans for some of them. 

As for flavoring, I don't recall seeing too much flavored ground coffee in the local way, I mean not like Amaretto flavored ground coffee.  Different roasts, but not actual flavors.  Interesting.
