From Super Affiliate to Coffee Baron?

Bill McClure, former Chairman of Traffic Strategies, which was sold to Linkshare one year ago, informed me this morning that he has just acquired Coffee.org for $100,000. That domain will make up his key international coffee distribution destination site and he will utilize another 650+ coffee related domains he has acquired to create a network of coffee related sites to market his new coffee empire. Coffee.org will sell and ship brand name coffee products and equipment.

“Coffee is the second largest traded commodity, next to oil and has grown from $8 billion in sales in 2001 to over $ 13 billion today.” says McClure. “Studies show that throughout the world, people consume more than 330 million cups of coffee each and every day. This makes black coffee the most popular drink after water and even beats tea as people’s favorite drink.”

Some of McClure’s other coffee related domain acquisitions include:

It will be interesting to watch as this Coffee Barron’s empire develops…
