Then I received the "swag" in the mail. Opened the box - hey, that's a pretty nice package.
I had never heard of Ronnoco Coffee.
But, if you live in the Midwest, Ronnoco Coffee is probably a staple in your home or office.
Yesterday, I snipped open the bag of "Private Estate" beans and the first thought I had was, "Wow, that package was nice and easy to open."
Second thought, "That's the nicest resealable strip I've seen. So easy to pull off."
Yet, I figured, it was all show and no go.
Thankfully, I was wrong.
Ronnoco Private Estate is a very good cup of coffee. It's not "mind-blowing." It's not the rarest of beans or the most exotic roast I've ever had. But it's honest coffee.
And, did I mention it's very good coffee?
If you're not planning a trip to St. Louis or Topeka or Chicago or any other of the locations in the Midwest where Ronnoco Coffee is sold, you can always do what every other busy American does and order online at:
A 12 ounce bag of "Private Estate" blend retails for 9.99. Under ten bucks!
