Our New Postcards

Our New Postcards
June 7, 2018

If you have ordered from us in the past, you know we like including a fun or informative postcard in your package. Usually it's a description of a photo from a coffee origin,  an insight into coffee production or just a different view of something coffee-related. Our latest design focuses on some new features from the new sweetmarias.com (launched in May). One of the biggest challenges when shopping our site is sorting through a list of coffees that is always changing as they go in and out of stock. We now have better filtering with pricing, flavor notes, processing, etc. Our new radar charts aka spider charts that are great visual guides to our interpretation of how each coffee tastes.  You can even put coffees onto a wish list so you can have a record of the coffees you like but want to look them over before buying them.
