    Hey, love the site! I just started watching these and can’t get enough. I just bought a couple 4 packs of this vintage and love it. Do you have any idea when the variants are being released? Keep up the good work!

    • From "ChrisQ" :

      Hi Wes,

      I think the coffee has already been made, or if not, it will be soon. So definitely expect that in the next few months. After that, I can’t say. Just have to wait and see I suppose 🙂
