Coffee Roasters and Crafts-people of all sorts, Connoisseurs & Entrepreneurs, Beware!
Have you heard about the coffee bloggers who are scamming companies out of specialty coffee but most importantly time? They parade as real coffee bloggers but are they really the "Coffee Bible" as they claim (it is called something else actually, but I am being nice)?
One of these so-called "coffee bloggers", who somehow has an impressive over 50,000+ Twitter followers, reached out to us by finding us on Facebook. We no longer use Facebook as a social platform but he as extremely desperate. This "blogger" obviously doesn't want to pay for his own high-end specialty coffee, which is fine, but the hassle that many small and larger brands may go through being scammed by this guy is what I want to talk about. His name is Allen Glines and now is a good time to pay attention if you don't want this annoyance.
Alan Glines frames himself as a typical coffee drinker. The deal is a blog for a free bag of specialty coffee reserve after he reaches out and begs for it. You may or may not hear back from him until he is "ready" to write your blog a month or six later... maybe years. I would still like to think maybe I am mistaken about the fact he scammed our small business but he did. This is after telling us in multiple receipts that he adored our coffee. Plus, it's specialty coffee roasted to order that he had already claimed to have love but "was working on the blog". It's not about the specialty coffee but the actions he took and the time he wasted. A collab is a collab. The biggest faux paux is when someone ghosts you with product in hand after you have gone out of your way to send 3 different specialty reserve coffees. That's an exchange where only one party has come through.
Allen was excited when he reached out and THRILLED, to say the least to try the Toro Coffee brand. He even states that he is most excited to hear back from us, as we are most interesting to him out of any brand he had spoken to in his entire "coffee bible" blogging life. We have receipts.
He explained that he would write a no-frills blog about our company profile. It is what he calls the coffee bible, the point is to write something about all the coffee companies in the USA.
We even spoke to Allen candidly about the many requests we get for free farm to cup coffee and how people use "blogging" as a scam. This was October 2016. Update it is 5/29/2019* and I re-reading this asking myself if it is too petty but Nah, he deserves. I started working on his order with so much love and passion as I do all my orders as a professional craft roaster, hoping he wouldn't scam us and would taste the love of what we do. He received the coffee in a beautiful package, but we never got the blog. Typical.
Allen Glines was taking so long to write the blog we wondering if he would turn on us just for following up. Some coffee companies openly do follow up with him online, but it is clear they are going through the anguish of potentially a PR conflict by having a bad blog written by a typical dude with no credentials other than he has 50k followers and that he likes coffee.
You can see the more coffee companies send him coffee for free publicity even if it is for his lazy writing. The problem is, the smugger he gets about the free high-end goods you send. He is some random dude passively aggressively, threatening craft coffee shops on Twitter and then gets defensive when these companies openly ask: "Hey bro, where are your part of the bargain and why is it taking months if even ever?"
I have been a roaster for a long time. I am not only a roaster, but I am also a 5th generation coffee entrepreneur. I have slept next to these beans in a tent by myself as a woman in the highest altitudes of the coffee belt. Humblebrag here, along with the fact, when we get a review it is always 5 stars. We take coffee seriously. When this dude came to us with enthusiasm about our brand and desperately wanting to try our coffee, with hesitation, we agreed because we always want to believe in people.
Does he have lots of followers? Yes. I believe he built them at the height of Twitter when they were throwing out Twitter verifications like candy. Does he actually do reviews? Sometimes. You can find a lot if basic worded reviews that are not worth the anguish of this guy getting some of your high-quality beans, time, or products.
Toro Coffee Co. did try to reach out to him but we still got no reply. We thought about Twitter, but again, the retaliation. He didn't say he wanted to review it, but I am always ready for such an occasion. We always micro-batch our high graded coffee from either our family farms or the greatest sourced farms we work with. We roast on everything from our Huky500t to the largest commercial machines. I am so proud of Toro Coffee Co. we actually sent him three different roast styles.
I feel that Allen doesn't know what he is doing. I believe he WANTS to be a real blogger but has problems writing content that actually matters. I see more and more random posts, that he calls blogs speaking about the numerous coffee companies that continue to shut him down. I wish Toro Coffee Co. had been one of them.

Happy Holidays From Your Artisan Roaster November 27 2015
Toro Coffee Co Sparkles this Holiday Weekend in Specialty Coffee November 27 2015
Here you are, The "new wave" Coffee Connoisseur. You are evolved. Not in a fake way either, you really are making a difference in your way of buying your favorite foods and drinks. Thank you for choosing us as your roasters. You finally came to the realization that other coffee choices probably weren't healthy as they sat in warehouses for years and were mass produced at charred roast profiles (those REALLY dark roasts everyone "loves") only the devil can create and sell to you as "good" or even "decent coffee". It took me 30 years and a trip to the land of my blood in Colombia to really appreciate what I was drinking. I have been drinking coffee since I was four, so don't be mad at yourself for waiting too long. That pueblito style: where you had them roasted next to the very finca that the farmers just picked from harvest, that is now found here economically with the pennywise yet high end roast styles that are unique to us, and only us.
Your budget savvy conscience has helped to set up your own coffee bar, and sip on your single origin, artisan, roasted to order, personalized Toro Oro-- which is a small, USA based, two person start up, with a back story that fuels reinvention in each bag, and carries its motto of "devote your heart and passion to your customer" -- A business mindset we wear like a badge of honor- because it is. Saving money with the Maserati of specialty coffee is how Toro Coffee Co. consumers roll!
Your piggy bank is filling up as you continue to be your own barista. Here at YOUR web-shop, you know you can ask any question because you feel you at home, plus it is nice to order from home and have it delivered to you. You paid for your specialty coffee. With Toro you paid for a personalized roaster, who knows you and how you like your high end brew.
With the last name Toro, this is generations of coffee. This is serious business and you KNOW your roaster. You are the boss and you make sure you are getting what is worthy of your hard earned cash in this day and age.
We wanted you all to know some quick $ saving stats as we move into our last quarter of the year... as a baby company with big dreams, BIG LEAPS, and even bigger deals with loyalty points and fair, out of this world, price points. This company is YOU! We grow together and we learn together as we build a platform to give back and make the world a better place-- Again,Together.
From a competitor, a 12 oz bag of specialty coffee runs you about $18.50 plus. Most of these shops roast weeks ahead- some even hours ahead, yet not roasted to order, and not small batch that is roasted rfo only you. Here, this is not a buzz phrase--Their roasters can roast 20 lbs at once, still can be considered small batch?! Is that a batch roasted just for you?! Starbucks which also uses the term "small batch roaster" is using a roaster that is bigger than a SUV. Eventually we will have to roast larger amounts as we continue to grow, and we won't be able to provide the type of gourmet roast to consumer delicacy that is happening now but our hope is to figure out a way to do it where we don't lose the essence of you, and the freshest operations you have fallen in love with us in these two short years. I refuse to lose the essence of true small batch.Toro Small batch is the latest harvest form each region across the globe, roasted at 250 grams/roast. It take 3 of these micro roasts to get to one pound of perfect coffee.
This is an idea to show you how much you save:This is based on a monthly order of 2 $20 pound bags (our most expensive bags based on harvest availability/region; with shipping) being consumed in 30 days.Broken down, this equates to 0.77 per cup, based on 2 cups per day, which is 1.53 a day. These are approximate numbers but do the math yourself to see how much you save based upon your personal coffee consumption..
