"I'm not a lawyer but this was the route we were advised on. We live in a fairly litigious society, so whatever I could do to separate our business from our personal life was worth it. The total cost for starting an LLC for us was $500 with Legalzoom. Seemed like a no brainer." - Samir Balwani

"Thank you so much for your thoughts! I've actually just pushed an update to put the description and add to cart on the recommendations page. We also added pagination, so you can look at more. Totally agree about the quiz (a few people have said that) and we'll definitely make it a bit more "interesting". I'm updating the algorithm right now to try to add a little bit more of a mix to the recommendations right now. Thanks again for your help!" - Samir Balwani

"We've thought about it, but we're definitely a luxury brand and want to maintain that. Discounts hurt us downstream - making it harder to work with other luxury brands and roasters." - Samir Balwani

"Yes! We're at about a 50% abandonment rate. I'm not too sad about this yet, because I think our biggest problem right now is getting people to add to cart. The accessories are going to be key for us. We'll probably do bundles + credit to our store. So you can gift the bundle without worrying about the coffee going bad." - Samir Balwani

"Makes sense - we'll have to find the right roasters (those that maybe aren't online) - or create some unique package. Most of our orders include coffees from two or more roasters. We're definitely seeing the need / want to try coffee from different roasters." - Samir Balwani

"Appreciate the feedback! I'd like to not white label product - the problem being that with coffee, we're perfectionists and unless we were roasting it ourselves and managing the whole process, I just wouldn't do it. The value we offer comes from the fact that we make buying coffee a lot simpler. Buying from individual roasters online is a real pain in the butt. Also, finding them is hard - bringing all the roasters together in one place (under a beautiful brand) with a simple checkout process, is our USP." - Samir Balwani

"Thank you so much for your feedback. Our goal is to try our best to be an "online barista". We wanted to ask questions and really advise people on coffee that they should try - from whichever roaster we might carry. That's the hard part of creating collections - for us, it's not personalized enough. We're definitely adding roasters of value and trying to bring on-board only quality roasters." - Samir Balwani

"This is definitely a good point. I'll rewrite the descriptions to be a little more clear and highlight awards (for example, Coda Coffee won the 2014 Roaster of the Year award). Also, this is a great insight - "that people are looking at roasters before checking out the coffees" - I made the assumption that coffee product recommendations would be enough." - Samir Balwani

"We're trying to do both. The problem is that the sample because a logistic nightmare - just because we have so many options. We'll definitely add it as a feature request and see what kind of feedback we get from others. I'll take a look at the quiz tonight. When we first started the quiz was about five questions long and included roast type and grind. We were torn between making it too long and making it more accurate. This is something we can definitely test out though!" - Samir Balwani

"Thanks! That's definitely a good point. Our product mix might not be right - it might be worth downplaying some of the products and highlight the fact that you can order from a number of roasters, easily instead of each individually." - Samir Balwani
