I just started using idrinkcoffee and so far they have been great. Bought my Silvano from them, bottomless PF, and they do have a wonderful roast called "Espresso Yellow". I also like a couple of roasts at greenbeanery

I have made several purchase at Idrinkcoffee.com.  Slawek is a real pleasure to deal with.  The last buy I have made at this store is a GS3.  :O)

Out of all the places I've bought coffee equipment from in North America, I'd say Slawek from idrinkcoffee has been the most consistently friendly and helpful owner/rep.  I have only been to the store once, and I wish I had time to check out the equipment on display.

I know this is an out of date thread to add to, but if people are looking for feedback/reviews of idrinkcoffee, here are my 2 cents worth...

I've tried contacting idrinkcoffee both by email and phone twice each over the last 1.5 weeks RE warranty service.  They have yet to return my calls/emails.  I was impressed by their service when purchasing the machine, but not so impressed now with their lack of service regarding machine issues.

Literally minutes after I posted this, Slawek called from idrinkcoffee.com and he's sending a replacement machine.  I'm happier with the service now!

The beans I've received from Social are just great - various blends to try, and for 3/4 lb bags around $13-$16 (with free shipping if your order > $20), you can't lose.

It's the first beans I've ordered where the 'description' of the flavours was accurate (at least in terms of my limited palate).  Usually it's just 'hints of jasmine' this or 'vanilla undertones' that, and yeah, tastes like a chocolatey-shot ...

Even though i want support Canadian stores but it seems like the USA is offering way more compared to here. I'm looking to get the Rocket Celini but at $1699 from Seattle gear you can get free shipping and these items.
1 of Rattleware Stainless Steel Tamper with Angular Handle - 58mm ($39.95 value!)
1 of Rocket Espresso Backflush Cleaning Basket 58mm ($9.00 value!)
1 of Joe Glo - Espresso Machine Backflush Detergent ($3.99 value!)
1 of 58mm Bottomless Portafilter for Rocket Giotto and Rocket Cellini models ($69.95 value!)
1 of Seattle Coffee Gear's Guide to Rocket Espresso - DVD ($39.95 value!)
1 of 1, 2, Brew Kit - For Espresso Machines ($26.95 value!)

Too bad no Canadian stores can match that kinda deal here. But since im in toronto im guessing the duty on this is going to be an arm and a leg. Pretty sure outside of USA is not free shiping either.  Sigh I need to move to USA to get better deals.

While I'm not sure about this specific items there are many times that the US distributors cost is way less than the Canadian one. Free shipping is almost universally the lower 48, we always pay. I know with bike parts, I can order stuff online from the states, and have it shipped here, plus HST, etc for less than the Canadian distributor's price.
