Yeah, but do they lock up the infant formula?

I'm pretty sure they lock up the condoms. Which are used to lock up one half of the Infant Formula.

Their 'Black Cat' espresso is the one that I would step over my own parents for. But they do other non-espresso roasts that are awesome too. Some are definitely better than others, it's a taste thing, so maybe have a chat with them about it...
I finally gave 'Black Cat' a try after getting a two dollar coupon from my local grocery store. I'm not sure if I would have giving it a go if it weren't for your suggestion. I am loving it and it is a good step up from the 'Komodo Dragon' Starbucks coffee I was drinking for my dark roast (I usually blend a dark roast and medium roast together in a french press). Bringing this thread back to say " Thank you !". I am hooked.

Awesome!! Glad you love it like I do.

I was in Chicago at the end of last summer and picked up a whole pile of it, but I was pretty aghast at how much their prices have gone up since I last had to buy it myself - I know coffee prices around the world are shooting up a lot but I sense there was probably some "we're charging this much because we can". Thankfully, it was a Saturday which meant there were some modest discounts on all their single-origin roasts, so the few bucks saved bought me a latte...

A bag of Black Cat at my grocery store is the same as a bag of Komodo Dragon was ($14). I say was, because the lady behind the counter said the Komodo was being discontinued. The less I can do of Starbucks and help out a smaller company the better. I ended up buying what they had in stock and can only hope that they get more before I wipe my supply out.

I will also have fun telling people that Whitecat got me hooked on Black Cat.
