http://coronacoffee.co.uk/ I think looks great--very professional, but I think that the three "popups" for Wishlist, Quick View and Compare are a bit confusing and it would be easier to use those if they were buttons under the image.

http://sieuthithietbivanphong.com/ The home page looks a bit empty but the inside pages look good.

http://www.indiabazaaronline.com/ looks very nice.

A little slow loading due to the large rotating images - you could see if you can reduce the filesize with the Gimp or another photo editor - when you save it as a JPG you can lower the % quite a bit and still have the image look good.
Also the 2 rotating testimonials at the bottom are slightly different sizes so when I look at the footer it keeps going up and down.
Blog posts and photos are real nice. Also I like the facebook and twitter feeds in the footer. Interesting idea.
You could carry the coffee colors through the site a little more, like the Compare and Filter header backgrounds, and you could use real photos of coffee for the different coffees you sell.
Overall, looks good.

I just found an even better way to reduce image file sizes. Upload them to https://imageoptim.com/mozjpeg/
They automatically resize and download back to your computer. I can do 2 - 3 images at once. If I try more, some come back empty. My 600 x 800 px images are coming back about 57kb. The smallest I could get them with the Gimp and still look good was about 100 kb.
It's from https://moz.com/ which also has some great advice for building websites.

Are you going to pay for my bandwidth? Better way... no, lazy maybe :D

speed of the site could also be due to the host.
some other pointers (very small):
1) saying that the price is inc VAT is a bit redundant imo, that's the norm in the UK for consumer sales, shops usually don't explicitally say it, taking it out will make the layout look better (at least in the category view)
2) happened to click on the tea category, the only product in there isn't clickable, because you have a '&' in the SEO name
3) in the footer for the social links I would also show the actual account name; facebook.com/coronacoffeetea
4) personally I'm never a fan of the 3 option icons showing up on mouseover a product in category, it's distracting from clicking to buy... on your shop you should think if "wishlist" and "compare" are really funtionalities that customers will use, if so, keep them, if not, take them out, it only clutters the view.

Hi there,

I think most people have said things about the site. But there is just two points.

1. You are displaying a mobile number. Its great that you are displaying a phone number a lot of people don't but I would suggest against a mobile. You can get VOIP Phone number that are diverted to your mobile.

2. You don't have a address on your website. I thought that it was a legal requirement to show your address (Distance selling laws) but please do correct me if I am wrong.

But nice site I like it.
