This kit comes in four different sizes -- 1/4 lb., 1/2 lb., 3/4 lb., 1 lb. The weight size indicates the amount of each flavor you'll receive in this kit. There are about 100 beans per 1/4 lb, and experience indicates that this is good for a party size of about 25 people or less. And the beans will keep well if secured in Zip-Loc bags.
Once your order is processed we'll email you some URLs on our website for you to download materials for your kit. There are varietal signs for parties, instructions for the best experience, etc. These materials are not included with the beans as to help keep our (and your) costs down.
The beans themselves are not shipped in any kind of fancy containers, packaging, etc. Again, to keep costs down, we ship them in standard Zip-Loc bags. Remember: it's not the packaging, it's the experience.
