    Know your market

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    In the kitchen it my work I have some cold press in the fridge. Also on the shelves my Swiss gold filter, syphon, Zassenhaus hand grinder and some packs of my home roasted beans with the roast date on them.
    Currently I also have a pack of beans from The Maling Room clearly marked with the roast date on it.

    So what do I find under them today?

    A flyer from the Blue Pod Coffee company.
    I can get a free coffee machine (super auto and a 2grp WEGA pictured). All I have to do is buy Lavazza coffee from them.
    "All our machines use LAVAZZA BLUE coffee pods. Simple to use. Just great coffee with the minimum of skill"

    Great coffee, from a pod?
    Use a WEGA and put a pod in it?
    I was under the impression that LAVAZZA was roasted in Italy and therefore old before it gets here.

    A good solution for some, probably true comparing to the crap that comes from the coffee van that visits but to put this flyer under bags of freshly roasted coffee with the roast date on them?
    Kind of like trying to sell homoeopathic medicine to Richard Dawkins.

    Know your market!

    Was it a colleague messing with your head or was the coffee spammer serious? :o
