Also, I wanted to clarify that JavaGenesis can custom grind your coffee beans. Do you have a Keurig, French press or espresso machine? If so, JavaGenesis will be glad to custom grind your coffee order to brew in your coffee maker. It’s easy…place your order then email Juanice at javagenesis@gmail.com and let her know what you need. She will grind reorders the same way so you only have to email your grind request on the first order. Have questions about the coffees offered? Give Juanice a call at 678-773-0932.

Please place your orders by Sunday at 5pm.

Have a great weekend!
