"FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE"
20 September 1999 From: Send Coffee
Local Website Marks Second Year Serving Entertainment, and Coffee.
Blame it on too much coffee, but Richmond-based SendCoffee.com offers a little bit of
everything on a site that just keeps growing.
What started out as a simple site named for the founders, Lauren Ferrell and Jes Simon's,
love of America's choice breakfast beverage, has grown into a domain offering more than
information on coffee. Amongst the many pages to explore, the main areas include -
'Dog-O-matic kiosk', an ejournal featuring short stories, essays, art, and poetry from
authors around the globe; 'City View - Richmond', a guide to the Richmond area; 'PAGe ONe',
an internet start page for beginners; 'Send Coffee Gifts', a secure online shopping area
for coffee gifts; electronic postcards at 'Coffee Postcards at Send Coffee'; and with their
recent association with Amazon.com, a collection of books called 'Coffee Drinkers Ultimate
Library', featuring classic existential authors, contemporary works and science fiction.

Though Send Coffee is not strictly a business website, their coffee gifts and gift baskets
are distinguished by the quality of the products used, as well as their professional
appearance. The gift area came about through website visitors emailing an interest in
purchasing coffee gifts.
"We started getting mail from people wanting to know where we were so they could visit
our cafe, or purchase our coffee, so we set our minds to offering gifts which held up to
the reputation we have as a coffee source." Lauren Ferrell co-owner
The further you go into Send Coffee the more you find, for instance the personal webpages
of the owners, including the first and most well-known tribute to the internet error 404, and
3D gaming information and Doom ][ add-ons created by Lauren and Jes. There are also virtual
tours of Richmond and Hollywood Cemetery on City View - Richmond.
"Some internet sites don't let you know where they're based. We're proud of Richmond.
We love this city, and we wanted an area for locals to find information and possible visitors
to see some of Richmond's history." Jes Simon co-owner.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
