Chanty!

Thanks for the shout out about the Redline!  Glad you're enjoying it and that you had the chance to take advantage of our web sale last weekend.

As far as shipping goes, we at Metropolis definitely recommend using FedEx, as we've had continued trouble in tracking USPS orders. I did a price estimate for 2 lbs. of coffee via FedEx Ground to Milwaukee and it came out to $6.28.  Hope that helps!

Happy brewing!
Seth,

I've never had a problem with USPS, but I spoke too soon.  My Redline is "missing in action".  Per my conf. # it said, "Delivered 12:55 5-21-13, Chicago"   Too bad I'm in Milwaukee.  I checked on our porch again this morning (5-22).  No coffee.  I did said you guys this message & you said you were sending out another pound today via FedEx.  I hope it doesn't turn up today--because then it isn't fair to you guys.
Anyway, $6.28 for 2 lbs. via FedEx is a good deal.  Although I only can use (at the most 1 1/2 lbs.) at one time.  Two lbs. bought at one time--some of it would go stale by the time I finished it since I can't freeze it.   Barrington is charging $8.75 for one lb. via FedEx.  :(

Another option is to order your coffee through http://www.gocoffeego.com/  They have 3 free shipping deals every week or you can order up to 2 coffees from the same roaster & pay only $4.95 shipping.

You might check this guy out: http://www.theexcellentcup.com/
He's in Milwaukee and is an excellent supplier of green beans in the green coffee buying club.  
Seems like it would be worth a try.

Yep -- those are the types of problems we've seen happen with USPS. Let us know when you get your coffee!

Paradise is good, not my favorite.  I love when the robust flavor (2-Double shot espresso) punches through my 6-7 oz. of steamed milk with froth on top.  The flavors I love to punch through are more geared to chocolatey/caramel.  On and off I do love Sermon (which is more blueberry).

I got the Nuevo and I am not loving it like I love the Blue jag from Redbird.  I am getting the classico this week and will see how that goes.  I think the Nuevo is a bit dark for my tastes, I am thinking the classico will be more to my tastes.

I wish I had known about the sale, I would have gotten some redline.

You can try out Temple Coffee Roasters from Sacramento, CA. Their espresso blend is really good, although more akin to Sermon than what your preference. Free shipping over $25 so two bags 12 oz'rs @ 13.50 each.

 
Less water, more grounds.
