> Hey Byron… just a thought… how about a 20lb option page? maybe setup similar to the older line list? this would give best of both worlds… The older site was fantastic , easy.. and the statement it mad was that We are about coffee, not a corporate website… we all know this is the best coffee ;) we just need access.. not pretty coverings… imho! lol  and even maybe a thread able link for people to comment and review their experience integrated into the site under each bean listing… in other words an expandable list
> With this new website, I don’t see the vision here… its more looking like a public retail shopping store than a community of coffee aficionados… I fell like Im not as much part of people but like Im going to shop at amazon… we Liked the feel of the culture and spend most of our time enjoying coffee and cupping reviews than navigating a complex website…. I know what your going through, I too did web design and graphic illustration for years and my creativity was always put in check when Id make a beautify ad then someone would comment… can you make the phone number much bigger and plain text! lol there went my beautiful ad! but you know what… they were right! KISS  Keep it simple……. lol
> I much appreciated the small business all about product not fancy coverings that SM has always brought to us! we don’t want the corporate WALL in front of us getting to the delicious beans hidden deep inside… its not interactive or immersive anymore…
