Excuse me. Yes, you there. Do you buy your coffee at the grocery store?

If you do, you're really missing out. On an excellent opportunity to savor the world's best coffee. The freshest coffee. Delivered straight to your door. At competitive prices.

cicr-logo-colorCamano Island Coffee Roasters is a company based in Washington State that is committed to providing their customers with "fresh roasted coffee that is organic, shade grown, fairly traded (or also fair trade) and is the top 1 percent of the available coffee market." Enjoy coffee from Brazil, Columbia, Ethiopia, Uganda, Kenya, Honduras, and more.

The Club gives you 2 1/2 pounds of coffee of your choice and FREE shipping. Plus, you get a FREE welcome gift (thermos or mug) just for joining and there's no minimum commitment (try it for one month or for choose).

Here are a few other reasons that I urge you to consider Camano Island Coffee Roasters (CICR):

  1. CICR is a family company. Not a behemoth business.
  2. CICR is a company that cares about helping the needy.
  3. CICR sells the top 1% of coffee in the world. My husband is a coffee connoisseur and he turns up his nose at Starbucks and the like compared to CICR.
  4. CICR's coffee is certified organic. No pesticides and other yucky stuff.

One last cool fact: If you live in or around Camano Island, you can stop in at the actual "headquarters" to take a tour, sample the coffee, or buy some chocolate-covered espresso beans in the gift shop. I've been there on several occasions and it's quite the place (even if you're not a coffee drinker...there are other options: order tea, cocoa, or a Frozen X-plosion). 

So - for the love of coffee - try CICR. I bet you'll be very pleased indeed.

  1. I love my coffee and drink it all day long. I am always on the lookout for new and different flavors. Thanks for this awesome giveaway!

  2. I am a coffee obsessed girl. I have (sadly) run out of in the morning. Let me tell you....It was not a pretty sight.

  3. I love Coffee! I just purchased a new coffee maker and would love to try something different from my usual brand which is a pinon coffee.


    Guatemala - Light Roast

    Lightly roasting this super hard bean enhances its complex flavor. In this coffee you will experience a medium bodied, aromatic and well-balanced flavor.

  5. I love drinking coffee and I've never had this brand so winning this woud be great. I love trying different brands.

  6. I thought it would be really interesting to take a tour, so I looked at a map to see where Camano Island was. I was thinking it was some island in the Caribbean that had been renamed since I went to school. Imagine my surprise to find out it's part of the United States!!

  7. I am a coffee addict. I love trying all different brands of java. I have taken a few coffee classes at Starbucks. They were interesting and informative.

  8. I just love trying out new coffees. Camano Island is new to me, so I'd love to find out if their coffees would become my new favorites. :)

  9. Camano Island Coffee Roasters is a great looking website! I am a coffee addict since my teen years. The coffees at the website made me want to brew a pot of coffee!

  10. I would love to win this prize especially since I love drinking coffee so much. I am always looking to try out new coffee and this company's products sound great. I would love to be able to try out their coffee. My mom would too since she also loves coffee so much. This is a great giveaway. Thanks.

  11. I checked out their site and was surprised to see coffee from so many different countries! I love coffee in general and now I want to try all of the different coffees from other places!

  12. I have tried Boston's Best coffee and it is far better than anything I have had in a store. I think buying from a smaller company is probably better than buying it in the store, where it probably has been overprocessed and who knows how old.

  13. I love to try new coffee, especially organic. I hate Starbucks and would love to try something else from WA state.

  14. I have not had a great cup of coffee for a long time. I don't like Starbucks or most coffee places. The can coffee has declined in flavor and I don't know why. I would like to try your brand and see if it can remind me of what coffee is suppose to taste like.

  15. They all sound wonderful! I'm a STRONG coffee addict, but pretty ignorant about what I drink. I know I like French Roast, but I have no idea about different regions.

  16. I love husband calls me a coffee bean because I drink so much of it. My favorites are dark roasts.

  17. Its funny I live in WA state, and NEVER even heard of this company~ And here I am buying starbucks coffee beans!

    ~thanks for the chance~

  18. We drink the darkest roast we can find from the supermarket. We are usually not able to afford the best stuff, but we sure do like it when we get to try it! Thanks for the chance at winning some!

  19. I would choose the whole bean Ethiopian Roaster's Reserve. I almost always buy organic and/or fair trade coffee from Trader Joes. Every little bit counts towards helping the people who pick the beans that help me start my day.

  20. With the descriptions of the coffee they give, you feel like trying them all, but my 1st choice would be the Guatemala Light Roast sounds intriging with the citrus flavor.

  21. I've tried other mail order coffees and sometimes it gets to be a little expensive. I would like to try this and see if the quality is better than what I am currently using.

  22. My husband is a total coffee freak so this would be Great for him. Looking thru the Camano Island Coffee Roasters site I read about how the Coffee Lover's Club members have done so many good things in this world just through buying your coffee.I read that many villages now have clean water, more sustainability on their own, and educational centers for the children.This is Fabulous and Amazing and I was surprised and glad to ehar this fact. skyxsky27(at)

  23. I think the Colombian Excelso would be good, because the description says it is the perfect combination of nuttiness, sweet caramel tones, along with a touch of spice on the undertone.

  24. I'm a coffee nut and always love trying new blends. Camano Island has a terrific selection, and their Honduras blend sounds especially intriguing. Thanks for the chance to win!

  25. Ahh we gotta love anything fair trade- and since we are a houseful of coffee addicted junkies this sounds right up our alley. Thanks for the info. :)

  26. Our newest splurge on coffee is anything from Guatemala. So this Medium Roast would be a perfect choice for us to try!

    Great giveaway! Christa

  27. I'm always interested in dealing with companies who have great taste and a sense of social responsibility as well. I'd love to try their coffee.

  28. That fresh-ground, fresh-brewed cup first thing in the morning... And then the extra strong brew, preserved in the fridge, to mix in with the protein shake "fixin's"... Flavors the day, and gets my motor runnin'! And you're speaking of new flavors and blends -- going to have to try 'em out!

  29. I am another person that hordes "good" coffee and portions it out very carefully. I loved the fact that this site offers fairly traded coffees. The different blends just sound fantastic and make me wish I could add a few to my "good" coffee stash!

  30. I would love to try their coffees from Peru. The Coffee club is sure convenient..saves time and money!

  31. Hey -- I live in Washington state! I know where Camano Island is! I love good coffee! What a very tempting road trip :) I'd love to take a tour and try the coffee.

  32. Great to hear about this my sister lives on Camano Island --I would love to go on a tour next time I visit. I also really love the idea of buying from a family business--it seems they are harder to find now days!

  33. I love coffee and would love to try Brazil-Dark Roast! Strong, hot coffee with half and half is the way I love to start my day! Looks wonderful!

  34. I'm currently working on a bag of Blue Mountain that I'm grinding, slowly, on demand, and storing under air-tight seals until each batch is (sob) gone... So of COURSE I'm interested to hear about CICR -- although I groan at being juuust about as faaar away as I can be and still be in the continental US (i.e., Florida; generally can't complain TOO much, though)... Here's hoping!

  35. I usually buy it from a local coffee shop. Recently, I started buying it online because of the selection and price. We love medium roast.

  36. Their coffees look awesome. I would love to try the Sumatra-Medium Roast. I like the medium and my husband likes the Dark Roast coffees. It's always a compromise. Thanks for the giveaway.

  37. I like trying different brands of coffee but because of the budget I usually stick to whatever is least expensive. Thanks for the chance to try some great coffee!

  38. I would love to try this coffee, as my husband and I are always looking for something new in that department. And I especially like the fact that they donate to Agros International and pay 75% more for their coffee to help the coffee farmers. Kudos to them!

  39. I love coffee! I can never have enough. I drink it all throughout the day. I would love to win! Thank you!

  40. 2.5 pounds oughta last out the week. Seriously, can go through a 13 oz Folgers in 3 days, so any coffee win would help the addiction..

  41. I lived near camano island for most of my life. I am excited that there is such a great family owned company there. I am not a big coffee drinker, but my DH is. The fact that it is organic and fair trade is a HUGE plus!

  42. I'm a Starbucks junkie but it kills me to support such a mega store that could careless about it's customers as long as they buy. I tried a small coffee company out of Alaska and it was horrible. It's hard to find a good one.

  43. I love coffee and am glad that this coffee is organic and not bitter tasting! Great giveaway! Thanks!

  44. If you cut me, I bleed Coffee. I am blessed with a relative who roasts and grinds his own coffee. Sometimes he gives me a pounds as a hostess gift!

  45. I just adore coffee. I like lattes, diner coffee, Dunkin' Donuts coffee, coffee house coffee. All coffee but my own! Perhaps it is because I buy from the grocery store. I'd love a chance to figure it out!

  46. It would be hard to choose which coffee. I don't know whether I would play it safe and go with the Brazilian Dark Roast or try a kind I have never had.

  47. When I brew my coffee I like to add carob powder and cinnamon. I drink it hot, and put leftovers in the fridge to pour over ice cream.

  48. I would love to try Guatemala Light Roast Coffee and their coffee of the month club would be so much fun!

  49. I only started to drink coffee a couple of years ago. SInce then I have expanded my java palate and have enjoyed trying different brands from around the world. I have discovered that it is so true: no two coffees are alike! You only discover exciting new coffees by trying them!

  50. What great selection of coffee! I hate to use it on myself and not keep it when company is over to impress them a bit (but you know I won't be able to hold off drinking it)! Thanks for the nice giveaway!!

  51. I cannot live without coffee! Over the holidays there was a Cinnamon flavored one by Pap Nicholas (sp) and I think I bought out the entire stock! I love trying new kinds and new flavors. Thanks for the chance!

  52. I'm always up for trying new types of coffee it's almost a food group all in it's own! I like the idea of a coffee lovers club I think it would make a great gift giving idea for those hard to find stuff for people on my list.

  53. I'd choose the Guatemala Medium Roast Coffee, although all of them sound scrumptious! A GREAT giveaway!

  54. I stumbled across your website because I have been considering joining the coffee club at Camano Island Coffee. Just doing a little research and they seem to be a great company. I would love to try a bag! If they're better than Starbucks, then I'm all in!!!

  55. I love that they have a gift store and also sell teas and cocoas. Perfect for gift giving for me over the holidays.
    Thank you so much for offering this wonderful giveaway :)

  56. We have been drinking 8 o'clock Italian Dark Roast from our A&P. It's affordable enough that the stock on the shelf keeps moving which means its a fresh coffee to purchase. We enjoy trying new brands and would like to try the Honduras Dark Roast. Thanks for introducing us to Camano Island Roasters

  57. One splurge I've cut back on is 'real' coffee. I've been drinking mainstream java. This would give me the opportunity to enjoy something special. Thanks for the chance.

  58. I fell in love with good coffee when our family lived in Italy. When we returned to the usa (a few years ago) it was difficult to find good coffee for daily use. Now there are many choices to try. I would be very happy to try an new blend.

  59. I spent quite a bit of time looking around the site. It's interesting how there's coffee from so many different countries!! I also was very interested in the Coffee Lovers Club. I've belonged to another coffee club online and think this one might be interesting to try.

    I also liked the boxed gifts!!! Looked like the were good bargains!

  60. I am not much of a coffee drinker but everyone else I know is. Especially my hubby. I have purchased the "wrong" type of coffee before but from what I can tell by your website, Camano Island Coffee Roasters is special and great for all coffee lovers.

  61. I wonder if they will ship to an apo address. my son just got shipped off to iraq. i know he could really use this. I mean really read what's included in this club. Is this ideal for a gift or what?

    You can buy coffee by the pound at your leisure or you can sign up for the Coffee Lovers Club (only $24.90 per month). The Club gives you 2 1/2 pounds of coffee of your choice and FREE shipping. Plus, you get a FREE welcome gift (thermos or mug) just for joining and there’s no minimum commitment (try it for one month or for 12…you choose.

  62. That's a beautiful website! I almost wanted to dust off my passport and head for South America. I love the idea of a "coffee tour"--the opportunity to try a different selection each time. Thanks for the chance!

  63. we drink Eight O’ Clock Coffee whole Bean and grind them ourselfs. Columbian is our favorite Java and our Coffee Maker is in use 24 /7


  64. If I ever get to Washington State I'd like to visit Camano Island Coffee Roasters. They sound like my kind of company.

  65. I drink a lot of coffee, but just regular off the shelf coffee. I would love to try some of the premium stuff from CICR.

  66. I checked out their website and found they sell something called Coffee Blossom Lotion. It sounds WONDERFUL! The ingredients are great and I am just trying to imagine what a coffee blossom would smell like. I want some!

  67. I'm starting to buy more and more organic foods, so why not coffee as well. I thinking this would make a nice Father's day gift for the hubby.

  68. I am a coffee addict and I am forever trying new kinds and brands of coffee. This would be great for my adventurous coffee loving self. Thank you

  69. in these trying times usually buy whatever coffee is on sale. having a chance to try a new exciting coffee priceless ty for the chance

  70. Our family is so used to cheap coffee. About once a year we splurge and buy some fancy organic brand. I like that this coffee company because their coffee has no pesticides is a good thing too. I'd sure like to try it. Yum :)

  71. I'm a coffee lover, but have never heard of this company. I like the fact that they are a family business & help the needy. Thanks for the giveaway!

  72. I am ashamed to say I have never tried freshly ground coffee at home. I always buy the stuff in the can that's already ground. I do love my morning cup(s) of coffee though and always like trying new brands and flavors. Thanks for the great giveaway and for introducing me to CICR.

  73. I love different types of coffee. My best friend just got back from Oahu, Hawaii and brought me back some Kona coffee. Never had it before and it was so good. Now I almost don't want to buy store bought after trying some good coffee

  74. Camano Island Coffee looks like it has a wonderful variety of roasts from some of the best coffee growing regions. I'd like to try the Ethiopian whole bean.

  75. The coffee lovers club sounds wonderful!

    I love that it is organic and would love to try it.

    :) Thank you for the wonderful giveaway! :)

  76. Currently, we make Folgers for our everyday coffee. I like to make StarBucks Coffee when I have company or on holidays. I like the way this company promotes itself. I love that they offer Percolator Grind because Perked coffee is my very favorite. I thought the world forgot about us Perkers!!

  77. I'm always up to try new coffee. 2 1/2 pounds? That should last me a week or 2. I love to find "good" companies to support. Hopefully, I'll win and it will be the start of a long relationship.

  78. I love trying new coffees and am always searching for good fair trade organic coffees...Starbucks is just the bottom of the barrel of crappy coffees. There's a local shop Green Planet around here that has awesome coffee. Thanks for letting me know about another company!

  79. Mmmm, I looove coffee! I don't bother going out for it because it's so expensive. I'm drooling over the coffee pictures in this entry, in addition to the coffee maker you wrote about in the entry below this one. Now I need coffee!

  80. I like that the coffee is organic. It sounds like a great company. Thanks for letting us know about this company.

  81. This sounds like a great idea bc there have been many times we ran out of coffee and didn't realize until the morning I REALLY needed some. If it was delivered to us monthly, we should always have a supply


  82. I would love to try this coffee. I'm sick of starbucks and been looking for a new taste.
    thank you cool site lots of info.

  83. Well being from Seattle I have always been a Starbucks fan! I do like the specialty coffees on occasion though and the Camano Island coffee is really very yummy. :)

  84. My husband and my daughters-in-law LOVE coffee! They are always looking for wonderful new (to them) coffee, so I would like to surprise them with this. Thank you!

  85. I drink alot of coffee, I especially like the dark roast strong coffees. My current favorite is Sumatra.

  86. i love coffee but i don't make mine at home that often because i'm always in a rush -- i have a fav gas station that has good coffee at $1.27 for a 20 oz...but i wouldn't mind having some GOOD coffee at home for lazy days!

    autumn398 (at)

  87. If I don't have my coffee first thing every a.m. I am pure EVIL. Sorry, no other way to say it!

  88. I buy my coffee at the grocery store. I buy whatever is on sale because I'm really not coffee savvy. I'd love to try something to help me change my mind!

  89. My husband and I enjoy a really good cup of coffee in the morning, and sometimes in the afternoon, too. He has been recently diagnosed with a seizure disorder. We are unsure the cause, but rapidly moving away from all the chemical additives we can. This sounds like a good alternative.

  90. The coffee of the month club would be so fun-I love trying new coffees! The opening video on their site is so soothing and peaceful, too, thanks!

  91. this coffee looks to be of good quality, which is important. that they help a great cause, is just a bonus. good going.

  92. My household is very much into companies that give back to the community and are fair trade! That is the only kind of coffee we have in our household! It is great to find another coffee company to add to our list of fair trade companies! We are into dark roasts here!

  93. I am a huge coffee drinker and am always looking to try something new. I generally grind my own beans in the morning and kind of rotate a bit around among different roasts. Since I am a Washington resident and haven't heard of this company I am looking forward to a chance to try them. Thanks for this giveaway.

  94. Living on the East Coast, I've not had the pleasure of trying coffee from Washington state, but their coffees sound wonderful and I'd love to try one. Thank you so much!

  95. I buy coffees everywhere I go. So far there are 3 that I always buy. I would love to see if this is one of the top 3.

  96. The best coffee i've ever had so far was in Barbados but wasn't allowed to be exported. This is a great opportunity to bring back the islands!

  97. My daughter is a coffee FANatic. I like the idea of a company with ethics and a conscience. I used to think "business ethics" was an oxymoron.

  98. The Guatemala-Light Roast sounds interesting. I like trying different flavorings in my coffee so something with a slight citrus taste could be worth trying. Thanks for this giveaway.

  99. With the economy being bad, we're letting gourmet type coffees be one of our special treats. I'd love to try this.

  100. Thats so cool that they focus on organic coffee. Ive worked with organic coffee growers and the time and care they put into the production is astounding. Im always happy to support those companies that look beyond the dollar to a socially and ecologicly sustainable product.

  101. I would like to try the Guatemala - Light Roast. I have actually toured a coffee company and found it intersting to hear about how they harvest and roast the beans. Since then we have been on the hunt for exotic flavors to try.

  102. coffee is certified organic.never tried organic coffee before it is out of my price range. i love a good cup of coffee would love to try it.thanks for the chance

  103. No pesticides and family owned company sounds good to me! I also love the fact they care about the needy! What a great company for offering this prize! Thanks for the chance! :)

  104. I was in Camano Island once, many moons ago. It's not all that far, so perhaps a road trip is in order. I would love to try this coffee! It sounds great. Thank you for the giveaway.

  105. You caught me, I DO buy my coffee at the grocery store. As long as I'm fessing up, I have to admit I buy the pre-ground stuff too. Why? Because I've bought more expensive coffee only to find they're not much better than canned grocery store brands. I've bought one brand that was worse than the canned stuff. Thanks for the fab giveaway, I'd love to try this coffee.

    oinkmoobaa (at) yahoo (.) com

  106. I would love to win this for my husband. With a new baby attached to me 24/7 (or so it seems!), I haven't had much attention left to give to him. His one indulgence is his daily coffee - I'd love to give him some that's really special, perhaps the Brazilian medium roast.

  107. What a wonderful contest - thanks for posting! I'm not a HUGE coffee drinker, but when I drink coffee, I like a GOOD quality cup!

  108. Please refrain from speaking to me prior to my second cup of coffee! This is fantastic-- coffee delivered to your door, sign me up.

  109. In the past year, I've been buying more organic foods, and starting to feel more energetic! Since I drink coffee, it makes more sense for me to drink organic coffee, too. I've tried Starbucks coffee, food, hot chocolate and their new smoothies, and never liked any of it. They seem to be on almost every block in Philly and NYC, too.

  110. I currently choose coffee from my Grocer's Private Label...but the idea of fresh to my door is very intriguing.......thanks for the introduction.......

  111. My husband and are always disagreeing about coffee -- maybe we'd both like this, since it sounds great!

  112. I am a coffee addict! I have a little grinder so I sometimes grind my own, most usually use the store grinder. I love the slightly sweet flavor of Kona and the rich flavor of Columbian. No sugar, no cream, just good strong coffee for me.

  113. I'm doing a little dance. They have Guatemalan coffee! WOOHOO! I miss the coffee I brought home from Guatemala. It was the best stuff. Trader Joe's sells some but it is a light roast and just too light for me despite nice flavor. I'm going to have to give their medium roast Guat coffee a try. (Don't even tell me that Starbucks has Guat coffee - that stuff is an abomination to Guat coffee)

  114. Just the smell of fresh brewed coffee makes me feel good... would love to try out a special blend for a change, ty so much!

  115. We love to savor the taste of coffee here at my house. There is always a pot full through out the whole day. We are always looking for new flavors to share with our friends and family!

  116. So nice to see CICR featured on your blog. I didn't know about the coffee lovers club! I may have to join, although, as a WAHM of an 18 month old, I'm not sure how long 2 1/2 lbs. of coffee would last! :)

  117. The fact that this company helps many villages have clean water and educational centers for children makes me want to be a loyal customer and believer! They walk the talk instead of just talking the walk!! Thank you for the contest!

  118. While I lived near Philadelphia, I would always get my coffee at Fante's at the Italian Market. Now that I live in rural Illinois, it can be hard to find a decent cup of coffee or place to get it to brew at home. Gone are the days of the Dunkin' Donuts drive-thru!

    BTW, if you have an ice cream maker, get some of the chocolate covered espresso beans. I make coffee ice cream and throw them in in the last couple of minutes. Coffee ice cream heaven!

  119. This is so for me. I am a coffee fanatic. I would/could drink it all day long if it weren't for my bladder not being able to handle it all. I have a great coffeepot that has a burr grinder so I only buy beans, but have yet to find any that blow me away. The best cup of coffee I've ever had was on a cruise and they had the BEST Jamaica Blue coffee. It was the way they made it that made it so great, almost like an espresso or something. It was very thick and frothy and within ten minutes of drinking it you'd be bouncing off the walls.
    I'm really interested in trying this out.
    Thanks for the great contest.

  120. It's hard to find good coffee locally that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. We both drink 2 mugs every morning. We need that caffeine rush to get us through the day.

  121. this sounds like great coffee, I think it would make a great gift to give someone one of these monthly packages. I also love love love chocolate covered beans, yum. thanks!

  122. I've all but given up on Sbux cause I just don't like the flavor of the coffee. And I'd rather give my money to a small local bus than starbucks.

    So, yes, I'd love to try this coffee! I only buy the Fair Trade kind at TJ's.

  123. Its so refreshing to have an environmentally and consumer conscious company out there with a good, sensibly priced product. Even if I don't win, I'm still going with the coffee club membership.

  124. Sounds so good, would love to try, and can imagine the aroma from both my grinder and the brewing pot.

  125. I cant make it through the day without my large mug of morning coffee. I have tried ordering online and never did find a gourmet coffee that was any better than the gourmet coffee sold in mass markets; but I would sure love it if I could.

  126. My hubby is a coffee freak! He loves kona and makes it soo strong - I would love to win this for him so he can try out something different

  127. I'm sipping from my morning pot of coffee as I do my sweeps. I love good coffee and this looks like it qualifies. I like the fact it is a family owned bussiness.

  128. I love coffee. I've been trying new brands regularly for the last 2 years. I drank only Folgers for many years and I did not know what I was missing. I've never heard of Camano Island brand and my father in law has lived on Camano Island for 20 years. I would love to try it. I'll have to look up the address to see where it's located.

  129. Another coffeeholic here.
    I'd like to try the coffee of the month so you can always be trying a new favorite :o)

  130. This would be for my husband, he loves coffee so much that I have to ship it to him while he's deployed in Afghanistan. He can't get a decent cup out there so I know he'd love this when he returns

  131. My husband grinds beans every morning from Costco. I sure wish I could turn him on to something that would go down a little smoother! But honestly there is nothing better then getting up and smelling the coffee brewing in the kitchen. Thanks for the giveaway..I love them. I have one on my blog too!

  132. I miss coffee as I gave up caffeine and recently purchased some decaf. Fabulous--would love to win. Thanks for the chance.

  133. I love a hot cup of coffee on a cold morning, especially if I have time to read the paper or do a crossword while I sip. It's the best way to start the day.

  134. I look forward to my morning coffee and would be more than interested in trying something that sounds as fresh and exhilerating as Camano Island Coffee sounds.

  135. I am not familiar with this brand of coffee. It sounds like a great company and I look forward to checking them out.


  137. If your husband turns up his nose at STarbucks and likes this instead then it has to be out of this world coffee, hence my esire to win this so I can then turn my nose up at Starbucks to.

  138. Oh this would be glorious . . . I LOVE supporting local and fair-trade coffee sellers but just can't justify it usually, thanks to unemployment. What a great giveaway!

  139. I'm a coffee addict. I usually buy flavored coffee. My favorites are Amaretto, Vanilla, Irish Creme and Pumpkin Spice. Yum :o)

  140. I haven't heard of this company before, but they sound great. I like finding about different businesses on the net, & I love coffee!

  141. Folks in Washington State do know their coffee. I love a good medium roast. I'm glad to see that they have several options, including grinds suitable for french presses.

  142. Love my cofee trying different kinds ! live in a small town and don't get to experience different types much ! thanks :)

  143. I love coffee and love socially conscious company's. So Camano Island coffee is my cup of tea! Their Papua New Guinea - Medium Roast. sounds so exotic and delicious. Thank you. :-)

  144. My husband has been buying Starbucks blends & I'm not really happy with it. I think it's a little bitter. I would love to find a great coffee.

  145. I love coffee but have to have decaf for health reasons. It is hard to find a good decaf. The asst they have looks great.

  146. We both love coffee. Besides our morning coffee we make a fresh pot every afternoon, sit outside and enjoy it. It would be wonderful trying a new brand.
    Thank you

  147. I appreciate that their coffee is also shade-grown. I used to volunteer at the National Zoo and I learned what coffee grown in the sun is doing to the rainforest and how much it hurts migratory birds. It may be smaller yield but it's helping to save our earth.

  148. I have been trying to find a great tasting coffee that is mild without the bitterness. This would be a good chance to try some new coffee. Thank you!

  149. I love coffee and am always looking to try new ones (especially if I don't have to make a trip to get them). Thanks!

  150. I recently started brewing my own coffee at work because the cost of buying it at 7-11 was nearing $2, so this would really come in handy.

  151. I can't start my day without a cup of Joe. I'm always searching fir the perfect taste. Maybe this is it.

  152. This is a great giveaway for a coffee lover. CICR sounds like a great business and I will definitely check them out.

  153. I've been drinking coffee since grammar school (that's probably why I am so short LoL). Anywhoo, I love trying new coffee!

  154. My mom and I love trying new coffee. I am really hoping to win this because we drink the same coffee every morning.

  155. I love to try new kinds of coffee. My husband and I are huge coffee lovers Thanks so much for the chance to win

  156. I am a stay at home mom of two little boys currently but previously worked in the coffee industry for many years. I was most recently working for Peet's before my youngest was born and coffee is 100% my passion. I love small family run companies and trying new brands but there are so many out there it is hard to try them all! I would love to try this coffee and learn more about this company. Being a former Peetnik, Peet's is my bread and butter in the morning but if I find a new brand I am all about it. Thanks for your contest! Diana

  157. I live in Washington, but I had never heard of Camano Island Roasters. Sounds great - I am a huge coffee fan, so I will try their coffee.

  158. sounds like good reasons to buy for me!
    my hubbys favorite coffee now is dunkin donuts, i am trying to get him to try other brands!

  159. I am not a coffee drinker but you'd better believe my husband is! You'll note a comment he made earlier and he is telling the truth...the Seelbach corfee was his favorite and he still talks about it. I hope we win a sample of what I expect is your great coffee. I'll earn points with my husband!

  160. The last time I had what I considered to be the perfect cup of coffee was 30 years ago at the Seelbach Hotel in Louisville, KY. It was rich, nutty flavorable. I begged my girlfriend (now my wife) to taste it saying THIS is the way coffee is supposed to taste! She haughtly refused since she is not a coffee drinker (her loss). So, it would be great to sample your coffee. Jim

  161. I like that they are a family business and also an American company. it is important in these days to support people trying to make a living and be part of their community

  162. I just bought some more coffee yesterday at the grocery store. I did however buy a local brand so that's not quite as bad! I think it'd be great fun to have really good coffee arrive on my door step. I've been more of a coffee drinker lately (I'm not entirely sure that's all that much of a good thing but oh well) and I've actually realized that I can now tell the difference in coffee quality. It all used to just taste the same to me.

  163. On my goodness - I just realized that you are due in 14 days - it seems as if just yesterday you were sick with morning (all day) sickness. If I was you I would be having this baby anyday now (my girls likes to come early).
    I hope everything goes well for you!

  164. I am one of those who buys her coffee at the grocery store. I use to buy the special ones where you pour your own beans because I loved the vanilla and carmel but due to rising prices I have gone back to the super cheap stuff. I did go on their website and noticed that they have coffee from all over the world. I would love to try those different flavors.

    One coffee that I do love and I think I will have to pick some up next time I see it is Kona Coffee - YUM YUM

  165. I've never heard of this brand but would love to try it out. My husband and I are addicted to Caribou coffee -- way better than Starbucks in our opinion. But we recently gave 8 o'clock coffee a try. It was rated at the top in a recent survey and happens to cost a fraction of the price of other coffees. I have to admit, CICR's prices are very tempting...

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  166. I try different coffees all the time. Your Camano Island coffee sounds very interesting. I hope that I win. Good luck to everyone else as well!

  167. Hey--I am a mom on Camano Island and I must say that CICR coffee is awesome. (I have a pot brewing in my french press right now!) It is the only coffee I can drink w/o getting tummy gurgles. Plus, it is a great company and the owners (who have become friends now) are the sweetest people. Thanks for the great plug!

  168. We really emjoy good whole-bean coffee - it's definitely a favorite splurge. But I'm afraid the budget often dictates (*gulp) Folgers. This sounds like a wonderful company and a great bean!

  169. I received a new coffeemaker for Christmas and my husband and I are happily trying new coffees. We'd love to try the Camano brand - for free!

  170. I currently stock up on coffee when I pass a Trader Joes. I've never tried a coffee from Washington state and Camano is new to me. Love to give it a try.

  171. Life is too short for lousy coffee! I am sitting here reading your Blog, cause that is what I do EVERY morning and with my Coffee. My nephew works for Starbucks so once in a while he will Bless me with is mark-out, not often. Hey, I'll take it.

    To me, it tastes, Burnt, he say's it is "ROASTED".. yeah, ok... burnt.

    I like the idea of a smaller company that is not to big for that really cares about it's customers.
    I would really love to try this coffee. I can't think about a day without coffee.

  172. Coffee is one of the simple joys in my life. I like a wide variety of them. Currently my favorite is from a local company - I love all of their flavors... but I ran out while hubby was out of work so I'm drinking Folger's right now. He's working again though so when I run out of this I know what I'll be buying, unless of course I'm one of the lucky winners!

  173. I'd never heard of Camano Island Coffee Roasters, so thank you for the information! The coffee sounds wonderful and the company sounds like they are very responsible. Their web site is appealing and there is quite the variety of coffees to choose from! The Honduras Dark Roast sounds yummy, as well as the Peru Dark Roast.

  174. Sounds like a great company. Right now my favorites are Maxwell House regular (I know, I know!), Trader Joes and a variety of Senseo (pods).

    I didn't see Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee (my all time favorite) on the Camano site but the Brazil or Honduras ones sound good. It's dark roast all the way for me.

  175. I enjoy coffee and drink it regularly but since my husband is the real addict in our house, I'm fine with whatever his current preference is. Right now he likes Community Coffee, but I'm really intrigued by your write-up of CICR! Gourmet coffee delivered to our doorstep would be a fun change!

  176. I am a true coffee hound. I don't care for Starbucks, I usually buy Dunkin Donuts. But lately, their coffee doesn't taste as good as it used to. I would love to try this new coffee and the idea of organic is important to me. Thanks for the information.

  177. Coffee and winning are two of the joys of my life. There is a large mug next to me as I fill out this form.

  178. would love to try a new brand, back and forth from supermarket brands to the famous dunkin donunts,now a supermarket brand? love dd - yet seems to be everywhere and now tastes . . . different?

  179. Coffee? did someone say coffee? I love trying new things and coffee is one of my FAVORITE things. thanks for the opportunity to win this great giveaway!

  180. CICR sounds like a great company and I'd love to try their product - especially glad to see that it is an organic coffee! And the level of social responsibility is to be applauded (helping people), hopefully we'll see a greater and greater level of altruism in the business world as time goes on. Very refreshing :) I give them two opposable thumbs up lol

  181. I would love to try this, we just moved to a much more rural area and have difficulty finding respectable coffee- We usually stock up at Trader Joe's every few months but finding reliable mail order is on my list! As well as a green-minded company. Off to check out their site...

    Thanks for the chance!

  182. My husband and I are always up for trying new coffee! At present we enjoy Eight O' Clock Coffee from our supermarket the A & P. We have it ground in the store, the smell is to die for, and I just love the mellow taste. I certainly would love to try a coffee from Washington state, it would be a different experience.

  183. I have taken to buying coffe at "Earthfaire". I grind it right in the store and keep it in the freeze until I use it. I especially like a Guatamalan coffee that is lightly roasted so there is little acidity and bitterness.

  184. Oh, I would absolutely love to win this!

    Currently, we drink Trader Joe's organic french roast. Or Starbucks. But I'd love to try this! And 2.5 pounds would go a long way, here. I'd say that lasts us over a month!
