Once on the site I knew this was the one I was going to try. To start with they explain the meaning behind their name. Prosum is a Latin word that means to be useful, do good, benefit. One of the ways I geek out is with languages. Latin is my language of the moment. :-)
And of course the intent behind naming a company something that means to be useful and do good. Prosum Roasters works to make sure the farmers benefit from the coffee they grow. It's not about getting as many beans at the lowest cost. Granted most of the roasters I buy from do this but that doesn't make it any less important. It's always important. Yes, the coffee I drink costs more than something I might buy at a grocery store - but it tastes better and comes without the bitter flavor of exploitation.
And they have a flickr with lots of pictures. I love Flickr, I have been a member since BEFORE Yahoo owned them. I joined back in year one and it remains one of my favorite ways to explore images. Imgr is cool, but I get tired of the memes. Instagram is fun too, but Flickr is a different kind of fun. I enjoyed looking though the photos Prosum has posted.
So I ordered
Ethiopian Skukery Kellensoo
& Stellar Cold Brew Blend
The ordering process was smooth and I enjoyed the touch of including a representation of the beans with the photo of the bag.
Shipping was fast and I had a tracking number. I do like tracking numbers.
When the box arrived I was surprised to see such a large box for two bags of coffee. Turns out it was so large because they sent me a surprise gift - MORE coffee!! I also got some of their Rockin' Espresso and Nicaraguan Finca Santa Teresa de Logos Yay!! Christmas in July!! Without the never ending repeat of Christmas carols. (there are roughly a ZILLION Christmas Carols - why do radio stations only play about 15 and why do they start playing them in October?)

Reviews will be posted soon. I'm getting closer to catching up on everything. :-)
