I received several interesting emails today, which I thought I’d share below (this was the first day I had received emails of this sort, so I’m curious to see if it continues).

If you start selling coffee on the Internet, I will buy it to support Arizona!

Go Arizona. I support the new law.

Hi, I was wondering if you sell your coffee by the pound and if so, how would I go about ordering? I’m from the Chicago area and wanted to send some business to AZ…so why not with my favorite drink?! 🙂 Thanks!

How can I buy AZ coffee. Seattle is boycotting AZ because of the ILLEGAL
IMMIGRATION BILL. Has no one read it? STARBUCKS is in SEATTLE. If they want to play this game, then I think those of us who stand with AZ should join their game…and play to win!

Love your site. Didn’t know there were local brewers. However, it would be
nice if you had an East Valley section, and if you listed the approximate
location (major crossroads) next to each link. Going to each website to then
have to navigate and find their address is very cumbersome. Thanks and keep up the great work.

And in case anybody new is reading this that is interested in supporting Arizona coffee roasters, you can find my list here.

  1. Funny thing you should post this Chris. We’ve been getting numerous phone-in orders from out of state people buying coffee just to support AZ in support of the SB1070. I think there’s a very large majority of the supporters around the country. We’ve also been sending mugs and t-shirts out with our company logo with these orders as a form of thanking them for their support.

    i just want to remind everyone that any coffee you purchase from an AZ roaster is also funding a product imported from a foreign country that has a sustainable business in coffee production. the very nature of how coffee is produced is allowing money to flow into other markets and as you probably know not all business models can promote or sustain such a practice. the roaster is just the last barrier. every sip you take has been provided by beans that have touched the hands of a foreigner outside the US. even though the roasted beans are also, mostly brown, they are not americanized once they are imported here for your cup. i want you all to think about how this business is really run before you choke down that next espresso-we survive because someone else in another country works with us. to support a law of this nature is to support the terror that America brings to everyone else’s borders.

  3. Not sure what your post has to do with the subject……of course every coffee bean sold here helps the people who grew them. Does anyone think that’s not a good thing? We, in fact, go much further than in helping farmers and their families in country of origin. Come by our shop sometime and I’ll be happy to show you some of our past work and projects in the works.

    Meanwhile, the support for AZ businesses by our fellow countrymen all over the U.S. seems to have dramatically increased since I posted a few days ago. Some refer to it as “Buycott Arizona”.

  4. Victor: That’s very cool. One of the emails I received mentioned a Facebook Page and I found (one of) the source of all of the traffic.

  5. I oppose SB1070 and I have always bought my coffee from local coffee shops.

    Lessee. Whatever side of the SB1070 fence you’re on, boycotting an entire state of businesses simply because lots of them support a piece of legislation that some talking head told you wasn’t great is like stopping and interrogating all brown people just becasue some other talking head told you that they might be illegal.

    I’ve never seen an larger hypocrisy than those suggesting that putting the economic squeeze on the residents of an entire state, regardless of their personal politics. Punishing the same people that are crying out for help for the legislation that is attempting (rightly or wrongly) to provide them with that help.

    Good to see ya.
    However, I disagree with you on this. With the way our economy and lawmaking/Government seem to run hand in hand. Hurting the economy here, sends a message that what other states see, they disagree with. AZ has a short track record with this issue. It took an economic issue to change AZs mind on the recognition of MLK day.
    Funny that economics has more power over this kind of stuff than petitioning, protesting and voting does.

  8. Uhm, I think that we agree far more than we disagree, though, Mike.
    If I agree with those folk that don’t agree with SB1070, I suffer as much as those they want to punish economically. If they succeed in undermining the democratic process by intimidation and hatred, then what was it that they were protecting in the first place.
    If you must resort to economic and violent physical means to make your point, I’m thinking that you really didn’t have much of an argument in the first place.
    And it was economics that prevented us from having an MLK day the first time around, (paying an entire state’s salary to take the day off ain’t cheap), and all they protesters did was to make the tax increase for the holiday cheaper than the tax increase for the boycotts.
    Regardless of which side of the argument you fall on, punishing hardworking folk, that have little or nothing to do with your grievance, for political gain is pretty darned selfish.
    Good to hear from you again. Make sure you gimme a call the next time you’re in Tucson, bro!

  9. Psyd….your last paragraph is exactly what I’ve been preaching…..its one thing to disagree with this bill its another to better your political position.
