Meet GoCoffeeGo and Win $40 in Coffee

05/31/2011

I’d like to introduce you to a new partner who joins Presso, in supporting all that goes on here at Dear Coffee, I Love You. Meet GoCoffeeGo, a company whose quirky Mod-themed website allows you to browse and order coffee from a growing, but carefully vetted list of great coffee roasters—all in one place. Once you’ve placed an order, it’s routed to the roaster who fulfills it with fresh roasted coffee shipped to your door.

So why not order directly from the roaster? If you already have a great relationship and unshakeable loyalty to a specific roaster, then by all means order directly from them. I definitely have my favorite roasters (a number of them sell through GoCoffeeGo), but I also love discovering new roasters and experiencing what else is out there.

GoCoffeeGo provides the opportunity to find quality roasters you may not have heard of, while also allowing you to schedule weekly shipments of coffee from the ones you already love. My favorite thing about the site is their Auto-Ship tool, which functions like a “Netflix queue” for your coffee. You can add all the coffees you’re interested in trying, from as many roasters as you like, and schedule how often you want them shipped to you. You can rearrange and edit your queue as you like, and if a roaster happens to sell out of a particular coffee, you’ll be notified and your queue adjusts itself accordingly.

I first discovered one of my favorite roasters, PTs Coffee, through GoCoffeeGo and I continue to enjoy the convenience it creates while exploring new roasters. It’s not the only place I order coffee from, but depending on your personal routine, the coffee and espresso beans from GoCoffeeGo may be all you’ll ever need—so check them out.

 


To launch this partnership right, we’re giving away a $40 Gift Card to GoCoffeeGo, along with a DCILY mug for the lucky winner to enjoy their coffee from. Here’s all you need to do to enter:

1. Visit GoCoffeeGo and browse all the great coffee they offer.
2. Come back here and leave a comment sharing the first two coffees you would order—roaster & coffee name.
3. Sunday night (June 5th) I will randomly pick one person from all the entries and announce the winner on Monday.

Easy right? Tweeting and sharing on Facebook won’t get you more entries, but it will give you good karma points. So start browsing, sharing and shopping and you may be treated to a pretty awesome reward next week.

    I would go with the Verve El Salvador La Montanita, and the Water Avenue Tanzania AA Ruvuma. Have never tried either roaster, but they’ve been on the short list of ones I want to try.

  • Reply Allen Ho 05/31/2011 at 2:05 pm

    Awesome give-away! I love collabs. What I like about GoCoffeeGo is that it features roasters aside from the most popular ones (i.e. Intelligentsia, Stumptown). The two I’d like to try are:

    1) PT’s Costa Rica Finca Cerra Paldo
    2) Water Avenue’s Oak Barrel Aged Sumatra

  • Reply Nathan Reimer 05/31/2011 at 2:15 pm

    I was hoping to find some east coast brands that I love like Gimme!, Stumptown, or Joe the art of coffee. but since i didn’t see those I’d try some that I’ve heard of as being really good.

    Barefoot – Redcab – Brazil
    PT’s – Flying Monkey Espresso

  • Reply Kim Watson 05/31/2011 at 2:19 pm

    Ritual’s Matalap Guayabo El Salvador, and Novo’s Amaro Gayo. I’m up for new experiences, and will check out GoCoffeeGo!

    I love GoCoffeeGo. The first time I checked their site out, I was instantly hooked. They opened the door to roasters I never heard of and now have had the opportunity to try. Great company, great coffee selections.

    I would definitely go for Barefoot Coffee’s The Boss! Espresso and Cuvee Coffee’s Spicewood 71 Classic. It’s been a while since I’ve had a good espresso, and a while since I’ve made some quality coffee at home. I’d like to see GoCoffeeGo on a taste testing tour! That would be sweet.

    Barefoot Coffee’s Malacara Tablon 7 – I’ve never tried Barefoot and their extra-bright roasting style makes me curious.

    Johnson Brother’s Yirg. Peaberry – I tried the initial roast of this and didn’t think it was great. I’m wondering whether it’s improved – JBC never let me down prior to that experience.

    I’m pining after:

    2. Barefoot, La Gloria Cup of Excellence #16 because a friend recommended Barefoot a while ago and I still haven’t tried them AND how can you possibly go wrong with a COE?

  • Reply Andrew 06/01/2011 at 4:04 pm

    Two roasters that I have yet to try (but have been meaning to) are PT’s and Water Avenue. I drink pretty much all espresso, so here’s the two espresso blends I would most like to try:

    1. PT’s Coffee Southpaw Espresso

    2. Water Avenue El Toro Espresso

  • Reply CT 06/01/2011 at 4:21 pm

    Picking 2 off the site is like asking my Nana not to drive fast or put 2x the called for butter in anything because “it tastes better,” but i digress…

    I would love to try:
    Barefoot – La Gloria
    and
    Water Ave – Tanzania Ruvuma

    (funny story about Water Ave, I visited Portland last year for Oregon Brewer’s Festival & while looking for a certain breakfast place that apparently offices in the same building, got lost, walked into WA before the place was completed, didnt see anyone and left, only to find out later they opened as Water Ave!)

  • Reply Jason Burton 06/03/2011 at 4:33 pm

    This is a tough one, two coffees, really? Well, first love what you guys offer and we’re big supporters. The concept of trying multiple roasters with one shipping cost, what’s not to love. Second, coffee is so behind other beverages when it comes to options. You can walk into so many bars and restaurants and choose from an extensive list of quality beer, wine and spirits. Hoping coffee gets there some day.
    1. Ethiopia Sidama Ardi from PT’s (or any of their Kenya’s, too)
    2. Colombia Estrella Del Sur from B&B
    3. Any of the other kick ass single-origins

  • Reply Lonnie Chu 06/05/2011 at 12:35 pm

    I use an old Silex vacpot every morning, so the roast can’t be too dark. I’d buy Novo’s Amaro Gayo Sun-Dried with its light roast because I love sun-dried beans and I’m a cheapskate: free shipping this week on three bags! And I’d buy the Rocketeer Blend from Atomic Cafe in Salem, MA, because shipping just one state over to NY would get me a fresher bean, the roast is medium, and who can resist something both chocolate and spicy?
