OK. Full disclosure. I am a keter for www.stompinggrounds.com.

So, if I am breaking the rules here, please feel free to let me know.
We are offering free -- full-size -- samples of any one of four flavors
of this product: mocha, vanilla, caramel or espresso blend (with a
touch of sugar). This is cold-press, concentrated espresso. It was
invented by a former Nestle' exec who was the keting lead behind the
success of Oregon Chai.

All you have to do is email me here (sip@stompinggrounds.com) and we'll
give a free box of espresso to the first 100 people who respond. If
you are inclined, we'd be grateful for a testimonial on what you think.
The product is on sale at a variety of speciality grocery stores
across the country including Whole Foods back east and Fred Meyer in
the Northwest

Thanks for your consideration. We simply love coffee and wanted to
share.

All the best,

Thinkfast4 for Stomping Grounds Beverage Company
Coffee City, USA (Portland, Oregon)

Good grief.

It's like places that only sell sweetened iced tea, not imagining that
anyone would want it any other way. :-/

IMO, sugar makes comparative cupping a pointless exercise. "Yes, this
tastes [different in qualities a, b, and c] from this other." True --
but given the presence of sugar, possibly an analytic truth and thus
not especially helpful.

One would have to add sugar to anything to which it's compared. Yuck.

One would have to be more than a little churlish to object to
your giving something away - if they were inclined to believe that
their name/address wouldn't get on a keting company list, and if
they didn't mind writing you a comment in return (it's a good bet
people here wouldn't have qualms about offering their opinions). I
sense that this is a pretty genuine offer.

But I think the harder sell is that your product is flavored.
Folks here, on the whole, don't care much for that (to be brief and
blunt, and to generalize).

Take a look at the website- there are three flavored selections and
one that is not. All four are made with 100% natural ingredients
including the vanilla (surprised me!).

Whether or not they are palatable is another story.

The one that isn't has sugar. That wouldn't prevent me from
drinking it. I like flavored drinks of various sorts. It would just
make it hard for me to compare to any coffee experience I'm accustomed
to.
