Discover Goblin Gulp, Geek Grind Coffee, and the Stay Cafe Promotion!

Goblin thirst is quite the thing;
Works up quickly when we sing!
Pour a cup and gulp it down;
Goblin Gulp’s the best around!

We are excited to introduce our new licensed partner, Geek Grind Coffee Company! Their limited-edition whole bean Goblin Gulp Coffee is hand-harvested in Colombia and will arrive in April 2020. You can pre-order right now at a special discount price with early-bird pricing.

Goblin Gulp is 100% Colombian coffee which Geek Grind Coffee Company harvests in the mountains, sun-dried and roasted to perfection. The taste notes are ripe red fruits, green apple, and vanilla, with medium body, low acidity. The caffeine content is somewhat higher than average for a 100% Colombian. It is smooth, delicious, and perfect for breakfast or after dinner via drip or french press. It is also outstanding for espresso shots. The coffee is whole bean so you can grind as needed, according to your use and brew style.

You can also get your gulp on with this large, durable ceramic mug—the best way to drink your grind!

Experts In Their Field
Geek Grid operates at the highest levels of innovation related to ecological protection as well as social advocacy for their farmers and community of growers. They support and invest in the schools, infrastructure, and lives of their neighbors and community. The Geek Grind family are mountain farm owners and intimately understand the day to day needs and opportunities that the world of coffee delivers.

A Family Business
The Geek Grind family has been a leader in the coffee cultivation and farmer advocacy forefront for more than 40 years. They continue to provide that leadership today in both the US and Colombia. Their desire is to introduce the finest coffee in the world, Colombian high elevation Arabica, to you and those you care about. We love gaming and we love coffee. They support women in management positions and feel very fortunate to be in an industry that can touch all out passions.

Only Natural Methods
A lot has changed in the world of coffee in the last hundred years but the best way to get from farm to your cup is not necessarily one of them. Handpicked, hand dried in the sun, carefully sorted and roasted quickly in small batches; this is how they do it. Sometimes the old way is still the best way. This is as true today for Geek Grind Coffee as it was when they started more than 40 years ago.

.

We Empower Women In Coffee
Geek Grind proudly supports every facet of childhood education, industry training, and women in management positions in Colombia.

I saw this the other day on a FB add. I love an excellent cup of coffee so I went ahead and already placed an order. It has already shipped and I cannot wait to try it. I'll have to review it after I do. Might also have to buy more to take advantage of the free bag.

On their website, they have a picture of a Paizo Goblin Mug, but they were not selling them yet. Will they be available to purchase at some point. I wants it; I needs it. Nothing like drinking Goblin Gulp out of a Goblin Mug.

We accidentally left the mug link out and are adding it to the blog. (I wants it.) Thanks!

Is it possible to have the mug available on Paizo, for those of us not in the USA.

Yes, please!


What those two said - I'm in Australia and, while I'm (reluctantly) willing to forgo the coffee, I would love that mug.

Hi there, we cannot ship outside the US yet but we hope to add this soon! We very much appreciate the interest and promise to try to add this.

RNG created this coffee... :)

One party member in my Jade Regent campaign was a goblin firebomber alchemist (Adventure Path for a Goblin Fire Bomber?). When he encountered a former PC, a lyrakien emissary of Desna, he was given a mug of hot chocolate. He tried to duplicate hot chocolate with his alchemy skills and invented coffee instead. At the end of the 1st module, the player had to bow out, so we made his goblin character the new chief of the Licktoad goblin tribe.

That tribe opened up a Goblinbucks coffee stand on the road to Sandpoint as a new source of prosperity for the tribe. It became popular with the trainees at Foxglove Manor, which had been converted into a paladin academy during my Rise of the Runelords campaign.

I will have to rename the place as "Goblin Gulp."

Random... or kismet?

Our very own Sara Marie "discovered" Geek Grind at GenCon last year and brought them to my attention when I was running Licensing. I reached out to see if they might be interested in doing something together, and they were very enthusiastic!

It's a great fit that goes beyond simply gamers & coffee. I personally love their story and what they stand for just as much as their product!
