Hey Product Hunt! I'm the co-founder of Griindi. Griindi is a custom branded coffee service. You design your brand from one of our starters, select your blend, and we ship it right to you. You can also share your created brand if you'd like. We started Griindi about a month ago, and have moved quickly to get our beans sourced, find a roasting facility, and get everything setup on the site. We're ready to start shipping, and we're doing our launch here on Product Hunt (use code "PHUNT30 to save 30% off your order). Feedback is super important to us, and we'd love to see & hear what you think of the site, packaging quality, beans & roasting flavor, etc. Our beans are sourced from around the globe, and roasted right here in Idaho. Every variety we ship is Organic, and all but one are Fair Trade (and we're working on that). We're even lucky enough to carry a Sumatra from a 100% female owned co-op in Indonesia. If you have any questions or feedback please do post or you can email me at topher@griindi.com or find me on Twitter @tophermade. Thanks for checking us out!

@griindi @tophermade You're on to something here Topher. I see demand for a product like this for brands looking to wow their customers with an "over the top" gift. The combination of unique, high-quality roasts with custom messaging I think will leave a lasting impression on the receiver. Here's what I'd really like to see included to make this incredibly valuable. 1. Custom graphics (one color is perfect) 2. API for placing custom orders and integration with CRM tools, backend of applications etc. 3. Bulk pricing for buying custom bags in advance (to be fulfilled later) I can't wait to see where you take this! You could probably use a similar growth strategy as Startup Threads or even StickerMule.

This would make an excellent holiday gift or welcome package to new customers. Nice work with the Glasshole Coffee, @tophermade. 😃

@topher No custom imagery?? Booo.... JK, still very well done. Thanks! (But custom B&W imagery would open many gift / gag gift doors)

Hey opening your website I see the installation page of "Concrete5" with details about your server. You might want to do something about it! If you need help feel free to write me.

I would have purchased dozens of these immediately if I could upload a custom image. I would even convert it to one color ahead of time. Just sayin'

@shawnborsky now they offer branded images!

Very cool! I'm all about custom branded stuff and this seems like a unique one. I would chat with Pakible about the options for custom packaging. Good luck happy to chat if I can be helpful!

Thanks everyone. @Josh #1 & #3 are on the immediate roadmap, while #2 is there but further off - we need to streamline the beans>bag>box process and invest in the infrastructure more. It's a goal we are hoping to have ready before the holiday season. @Jordan haha, not yet. But if you want to shoot me an email with your design we can one-off a bag for you.

Nicely done. I'm looking forward to receiving my first bag of espresso shortly. One more key feature I'd like to see is a sample assortment option for corporate buyers. Ideally, I'd love to try 4-6 roasts for perhaps $50 before ordering. If I'm sending branded coffee to a valuable client, I want to be sure they are getting an exceptional quality and flavor. I don't doubt the quality, but you don't want to lose discerning first-time buyers. It also may boost sales if one or two particular roasts really stand out as something special.

Update: I've sampled several Griindi roasts now. Fantastic coffee. I highly recommend this for custom gifts to coffee lovers and discerning clients.
