Hello fellow geeks, Curious what people here would vote for as the best choice value wise for espresso. So far I've had the best luck with Redbird Brazil Daterra when I buy the 5lb bags, break it 3 ways and freeze it. I always get good shots, even 10 days post arrival. I like counter culture toscano too, but 12 ounce bags are $13 at my local grocery store and I rip through a bag in a few days, so it gets expensive. I like intelligensia a lot too, but its even less cost effective, almost $20 a pound! Any other roasters offer a great product at a decent price for small bulk orders (2 to 5 lbs) that I should investigate ?

Paradise roasters has some good offers on their coffees, for example you can get a five pound bag or if you prefer 6 12 oz bags of Espresso Nuevo for 47.95, and it's only 3 dollars shipping. Klatch also offers 2 lb and 5 lb bags of their coffee, and if you order through roaste.com you can get free shipping on orders over 39 dollars. I also like Velton's which is on roaste and they offer 5 lb bags as well at a discount free shipping also applies here too.
And while I have not had it a lot of people like Metropolis coffee specifically Redline Espresso, which offers 5 lbs bags (60 dollars) and free shipping on orders above fifty dollars.
