Does Intelligentsia still offer free shipping with two 12 oz bags?  When I went through to place my order, it is still charging me $12.85 for ground shipping.

Their Bali Blue was ridiculously good but don't see it on the site right now, but it shows if you Google fairmountain and Bali Blue... weird, could ask them. Their Nicaraguan was great, as was their espresso blend. Really cool thing about them is if you try a coffee and want it a different roast, you can request that. Don't think you can go wrong with any of their offerings.

Haven't ordered from them in awhile, have to again, actually just ordered from an eBay roaster to give a try.

Thanks for the recommendation, found four I may try......Flores Bajawa Ngura, Peru Cajamarca, Guatemala Huehuetenango and their Espresso Blend. They aren't that much more then the ones I get now and less then some and they sell in 16oz bags and free shipping on orders of 2 lbs or more can't beat that.

I use VERVE Coffee Rosters in Santa Cruz, I get it two day USPS and it is roasted the day before shipping. I'm in a 90 day program, and they rotate their espresso proctucts every delivery.

Their website states free shipping all the time so you don't have to be in the recurring shipping program. I just ordered a 1lb bag. Free shipping.

A little pricey compared to Red Bird but if you only buy one bag of RedBird at 12.95 and pay $5.00 shipping (my guess) you are not saving all that much. Savings come in buying larger quantities.

$20 for one pound with free shipping = a pretty pricey coffee. If you factor in other roasters shipping costs, you might find out that you come out ahead by paying the seperate shipping charged by others.

Honestly Verves "free shipping" is just a gimmick, that's not to talk them down as the coffee is good but all their doing imo is including the shipping in the price of the pound. Look at what others charge for a pound + shipping for the most part and that'll tell ya. I mean does anyone think their going to eat shipping cost on every single bag lol.
