Not satisfied with the high price of shipping? Suspicious of purchasing highly caffeinated beverages via the relative anonymity of the Internet? Maybe you just don’t think Paypal should have your account info?
Local pickup is the solution for you!
The BBotE Ambassadors are self-nominated devotees to the cause of caffeination that have taken it upon themselves to make BBotE more readily available to their respective locales. By shipping bottles to them in large quantity, they can then pass BBotE along to you with minimal pain due to packaging & postage costs. 750ml bottles are available for $45 in the US, 1000ml bottles are $75 overseas. Here’s who they are:
greta [at] pdxyar [dot] org
The Caffeinatrix of Portland is happy to bring the piratical fighting art of twin axe and coffee wielding to PDX. Oh, she also fights cancer…though not necessarily with an axe.
Greater Los Angeles
funranium [dot] la [at] usefulmonkey [dot] net
When not keeping the Dream Factory humming with caffeine, she spends much of her time herding the Burning Man community of LA and seeking the spiritual enlightenment that will let her cope with the the aforementioned herding. If you want to be notified when new shipments come in and about BBotE Tasting Parties and such, email email@example.com
London, UK – Justin, firstname.lastname@example.org
To get the most bang for the Transatlantic shipping buck, the Ambassador of London is stocked with 1L bottles rather than 750ml for $75 a piece.
The Intermittent Ambassador of Dublin (Ireland) -Brady, manningb [at] tcd [dot] ie
Much like the Ambassador of London, the Ambassador of Dublin is stocked with 1L bottles rather than 750ml for $75 a piece.
Greater Perth, Australia – Karl, karl [at] fishoutoforder [dot] net
Karl has prostrated himself at the Altar of Caffeination and pled a strong case for the people of Western Australia that the far and odd outpost of Australia might have some love. He is stocked with 1L bottles, rather than 750ml, for $75 a piece. If you don’t grab them from him, he will have no choice but to transmute all the coffee into math. I’m to understand this is possible.
Greater Sydney, Australia – Robert, BBoTE [at] fumbari [dot].com
Australia has an BBotE Ambassador again, but this time for Greater Sydney. Robert is a several time victim of BBotE that tends to skip about the harbour fairly often on caffeinated wings, but dwells most of the time in Hornsby. Because Oz Post seems to be staffed with people with noodle arms incapable of lifting weights in excess of 20kg, he is stocked with 750ml bottles which go for US$60 each.
Greater Detroit (or Delta City if you are an OCP shareholder)
benjamineliasz [at] gmail [dot] com
Ben is a tattoo artisan who’s heart is as dark as his metal and his coffee. I welcome him to my shadowy cabal for world domination. If you are in the Greater Detroit area and in need of a BBotE fix, you may drop him an email.
Greater Boston, MA
bahstun [dot] bbote [at] gmail [dot] com
Talena is an acolyte of the Caffeinatrix of PDX who has recently moved to Boston, bringing her love/addiction to BBotE with her. She, accordingly, would like to share it with you good folk of Beantown.
Greater Santa Barbara
bbote [at] bradhubbard [dot] net
The humble soul responsible for the fourth iteration of this website, has declared his undying devotion to the Black Blood. You may contact him to arrange your fix.
Chicago - Bill, BBotE [at] billweiss [dot] net
The Coffee Consul of Chicago/Cook County displays all the depraved caffeine consumption I expect from someone who used to dwell behind Super Sekrit Fences like me. His preferred location for handoffs is downtown in the Sears/Willis Tower.
DC/Baltimore, MD – Eric, BBoTE [dot] DCarea [at] gmail [dot] com
Eric has kindly volunteered to be the Consul Coffeetorii of BBotE for the DC/Baltimore area. Please drop him a line if you’re interested in grabbing a 750ml of caffeinated delight from him.
San Antonio/Houston/College Station, TX – Jason, Help@somebodyfix.me
Funranium Labs’ very own webmaster is also the BBotE Ambassador for the A&M crowd! He tends to go walkabout back and forth between College Station and Houston and limited runs to San Antonio, so there’s a chance you maybe able to catch him at either locale. Join the update list to know the production schedule and info (keeping track of all your emails is not his specialty)
Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN – Kim, kimreinisch [at] gmail [dot] com.
After sampling the delights at the Caffeinatrix of PDX’s wedding, her godmother demanded the rights to share BBotE with the locals back home in MSP. Far be it from me to argue.
Seattle, WA – Jim, coffee_bro [at] live [dot] com
A Black Rock City Ranger that volunteered for the Noble Arte of BBotE after his first encounter with Ambassador of Greater LA on the Playa, Jim is now our man in Seattle.
New York City – Sandy, nyc_bbote [at] icloud [dot] com
You have inherited an acolyte of the Ambassador of Greater Los Angeles and inventor of the Lung Flute, Mr. Sandy Hawkins, as he goes about his adventures in NYC.
