All the details are here:

My suggestion is that you form your own purchasing group. One person takes the lead. Hand goes up high and is willing to take the hit if someone comes up short.

Just 53 pounds to split. Not difficult to fill.

Here are the coffees: https://www.masterpiecesbydaterra.com/p ... microlots/
Decide on which coffee. Don't waste too much time deliberating. They all will be good.
Decide if you want samples. I would fly without them given timing.
Be on the stick. When the site opens on Nov 25th in your time zone, be there and purchasing.
Realize you have some shipping costs for piggy backing off someone's container. Much cheaper than airfreighting it. Can't be in a rush on it.
You will have ground transportation costs as well from that roaster's, say Chicago, or Detroit, or wherever.
You will have shipping costs via USPS.

Make it fun, not drudgery. DB

I should probably contact them to learn about their import partners and how that works and how much that increasesthe price. Folks who might be interested need to post here to get a sense of if there be interest.

Thanks for your advice to start it off.

I don't know when they went live with the announcement but I don,t see how one would order samples anyway.

D12 and D11 interest me the most

20 sounds good to me, too. Would also pony up for any of the Laurinas if I'm being honest.

D26 and D24 sound interesting. What do you figure the shipping costs typically run on these masterpiece lots?

As others have mentioned, any of the Laurinas and number 20 looks good to me as well. What is the typical minimum number of pounds to participate in the split?

I'd be down to grab 5-10 lbs of many of these options. Laurina might be a bit steep for me, but I'd happily spring for #20, #11 or #12 (which various people have mentioned). I'd also throw #18 into the mix as a potential option.

I would like to be in for 5lbs, all of the aforementioned lots sounds good to me including the Laurinas.

From Brasil and then distribution will add to the cost per pound. I can't tell from the links posted above. I am looking into that and if I learn anything I will report back. This thread is not about a transaction of splitting a Masterpiece lot, it is just to gauge interest. I 'm not sure at what point moderators judge the discussion inappropriate for forum rules.

They'll show up quickly if they don't like what they see. I'll say that I hope the discussion is allowed to continue, as this is valuable for the community.
