Sometimes it's cheaper if you go to the roasters site instead of Roastes, gocoffeego. I noticed that with orders from Deep Cello they are cheaper on shipping costs. On my last order of Nostromo Justin put in a sample bag of his own micro roasting company it was called Kenya Kaliluni Peaberry and to me it had a nice fruity after tasted if I remember correctly his other company is called Mad Beard Micro Roaster

Why not get that order at roaste you will get free shipping at least and if you don't mind signing up for a subscription to that order and canceling it you take ten percent off.

Posted February 22, 2012 link

Definitely do mind signing up for a subscription with the obligation to stop it by cancellation if I don't want it anymore.  I'm a single order at a time kind of guy.  However, I like your recommendation for getting free shipping.  How fresh are the beans though, I mean if they go from one place to another and then get shipped to me, how long after roasting will I actually get them?  (I'm also an order from the source kind of guy.)

If they are Roaste, GoCoffeeGo or who ever the people that they broker for are shipped directly to you from the roaster. Unless you order straight from the roasters themselves.

^^^ Example: on 1/21 I placed an order for a nice Yemen that Velton's offers through ROASTe. It was roasted and shipped from WA that same day and arrived at my doorstep in MD today, 1/23. 2-3 days post-roast is pretty much the norm in my experience. Right, there's no "middle man" for the beans, themselves (just for the order placement).

Sorry to bump an old thread, but I just came across this and thought I'd throw my personal favorite into the mix.

http://thirdcoastcoffee.com

They have 4 different espresso blends, and their Tres Costas is one of the best I've ever worked with.  Bright, citrusy, with a nice milk chocolate flavor.  And at $9/lb, it's the best value I've found anywhere.

Those of you in Austin can pick it up at South Congress and Ben White.  If you ship it, it comes out to about $11/lb.
