Smile With that rasta beret it should be Jamaican Blue Mtn coffee

Nice thread, more coffee ideas/accessories to try out! I'm not sure I'll get on the Airstream coffee thing, have to taste it first. Some coffee roasters can't figure out the difference between dark roast and burnt flavor, but I can sure tell. I hope the coffee Airstream is getting helps the farmers in the areas they purchase it from, like Fair Trade and Equal Exchange and others.

Just about any vintage monocoque fits that logos image so poor 'ol Joe just may have been taken to the cleaners for NO good reason.

As a non-coffee inhaler just the quick un-scientific response here looks more like 1 Yippee vs. 7 Who Cares.

Trying to mount a lifestyle campaign for AS comparing it to Harley and expecting ANY results is like trying to compare Tropicana Lemonade with the three ten year olds on the corner selling lemonade for a single day to see if they can net enough to go to the movies.

Potential licensees should look more the way of Vintage Trailer Supply if they're hoping to see dollar signs in their cash drawer instead of their ASdreams. Clearly VTS saw the BIG picture when wrestled to the mat by the corporate bullies -- good for them!

Oooohhh look! I can get me some A**stream gloves for racing in downhill slalom. Oh boy, Nike has a shiny silver running shoe. Wow, imagine how many they could sell if they could only use that A**stream moniker on it. Yeah right -- I got your lifestyle right here OMBD and the potential audience for this one is a real sleeper. Better to concentrate on what you know and forget orange juice sales.

Potential A**stream licensees -- save your money -- because there's really little to be had. In fact there's probably very little lifestyle to be had for all the interest in all the shiny silver travel trailers ever made. Hell, bowling was a hell of a lot more popular than travel trailers ever were. Hmm... Bowling Shirts -- how many are in YOUR closet? My point exactly -- case closed...

I disagree and here's why. Current Airstream clothing is aimed at a more seasoned generation i.e. Coveralls and jacket styles from years past. T-shirts?

Marketing newer styles of shirts, hats, jackets and especially T-shirts would sell because Airstreams are cool. Non owners would buy them. Downhill gloves and shoes? I doubt it. The key would be in he marketing.

I agree with Goin Camping. It's promising to see Airstream trying to go mainstream. Airstreams are considered "cool" by non-RV people. I think that it's about time that Airstream tries to capitalize on its "American Icon" status.

I really like the links to coffee sale sites. being a confirmed lifelong coffee
afficianado I love ordering and trying different brands. I f anyone else has a suggestion, please post it. I enjoy the Kirkland's Brand form Costco as an affordable daily brew, also Gilley's from NY, but it is hard to find in whole bean.
For el cheapo stuff Eight O'Clock coffee is still fair for my taste.
I look forward to sharing some good brewed coffee as much as well brewed beers.
Question- anyone prefer a certain style coffee maker? I use either a drip combo- cappucino machine, or a french press.

hi alan and other bean seekers....

here is a link to a really fine roaster.

http://www.theroasterie.com

a 10 year new company that started in a basement

but many now consider the midwest finest roaster...

great blends and distinct styles...

info on fair trade, coffee history, brewing the perfect cup and more.

many who attended the midwest rally this year were treated

as i gave folks whole bean or ground

that was roasted and packaged just days before the rally

one interesting feature of this 'air' roaster,

they put many of their premium products in old fashion style cans

saves on waste, the can just keeps on giving and it looks cool with our air homes...

give them a try it is outstanding coffee...

and as a bonus the owner became an a/s groupie this year....

like the rest of us, he's got the bug bad...i mean good.

cheers
2air'

another reason to like theroasterie is that they offered free shipping in august & got such a happy response that you now can get free shipping for orders over $40. and if you ain't pirate wench enough to order at least 40 bucks' worth of coffee, then i dunna wanna know ye.

Coors was a good beer before they screwed with it for shipping. Now it's just another kiddy brew like Bud and Miller's.

A bit pricey... or not?

Sorry folks, but at $13/lb for their cheapest... I'll think I'll stay with Costco.
You are all invited to my trailer any morning for a good cup of joe.
