I'm a huge coffee fan and I would NEVER buy that crap. You're 100% correct. It's a rip-off from start to finish. Keep an eye out for illegal business practices and report those assh*les if you get the chance. What's more, they are being investigated by the FDA and USDA, read and watch here: http://www.krgv.com/news/coming-up-tonight-trouble-brewing-investigation/

Your sister is at least trying to improve her life financially and help others in the process. It takes a lot of courage to approach family members and friends about any business. Family members and friends are often harsh, critical and judgmental. It is easy to go to work and exchange hours for dollars. She is at least taking a risk that many others are too scared to take. There are plenty of people in any business that are very successful because they learned to ignore negative and unsuccessful people. If she is like a lot of people in MLM, she has a desire for time freedom, spending more time with family, helping the communityy, and doing nice things for you. She also simply be sick and tired of being sick and tired. She is not doing anything illegal. She is working for a legitimate company that sells a legitimate product. You don't have to like her business or buy her products. However, at least support her. Now, don't get me wrong. It will take consistency, dealing with rejection, learning new skills and patience to make money. Sometimes people take many months before they start making money.

There was a company going around where i lived called verve it is exactly like that. EXACTLY the same setup except it was an energy drink. Don't get sacked into it, just support her and don't tell her I told you so. Everyone gets so overwhelmed at the thought of making all that money and getting a BMW or something fancy. The real part is that 95% of the people that join will make around 1000$, 3% will make like 30k, 1.9% will make like 10 and the last .1% will make a Jillion dollars because of all the people signing up. No one steps back and looks at the real break down of the companies. Also they will alllll tell you how great it is and you don't see the picture, a couple months later they realise. Sometimes people never realise though :/ there is potential but, it is rarely reached.
