Dan - do you need to have 100 participants to meet HB's end of the commitment? I am not good with taste testing :), but if you need to reach 100, I may consider to participate.

No, I only committed for 50. But even if you don't participate in the review, the price is unbeatable.

My tasting and dialing-in skills are not top notch either.

I'm taking this as an opportunity to improve both, while getting some great coffee from roasters I'd probably not otherwise try, at a very reasonable price.

Although I'm sure it complicates things quite a bit to ship internationally, I wish I could have participated from Canada!

Have fun with this blind test :D

Me too, but I'm not familiar with shipping to Canada. For what it's worth, it looks like it's $26.90 for USPS Flat Rate Envelope (max weight 4 pounds). My concern is that something will go wrong and the coffee will be delayed or lost. USPS sometimes "misplaces" deliveries in the USA; I imagine it's worse cross-border. :|

My dial in process is way off and as a single person with a full time office job I'm afraid it will lose its freshness before I get to enjoy and report my tasting. Would it be okay if put the bags right into freezer and go one by one every week to preserve freshness? I don't have any vacuum solution but as others have stated I'd like to participate & try out roasters I wouldn't try otherwise.
