wow, thanks for posting that, I think I know where I'm going to stock up from for the Holiday company.  Any recommendations besides redline when brewing as espresso?

No - Redline is my go-to for espresso, but I'm interested to hear what others have tried.

Wow. Awesome deal. I will definitely pull the trigger on this Friday. Thanks for the head's up!

Great deal.  Just pulled the trigger on 2 lbs. of Redline:  < $23 with shipping. That's better than I can do at the shop around the corner,  though I'm headed to Recess Coffee (Syracuse, NY) later today to get a fresh pound to hold me over.

I'm washing out the mason jars as we speak!

I placed my order, but got charged for both pounds and free shipping. Total was $28. Not the savings I was hoping for. I have an email in to see if this was a mistake. If not and it just discounts the shipping since that's the "lowest price", then it's not that great of a deal.

That's weird.  Was this today?  The special offer just started today.  If you did it yesterday, then you got charged the full price.  But even so, you made out great - it looks like you got free shipping?  Maybe you were combining deals?

Posted my order this morning when the deal went live. Didn't even choose a deal. The BOGO deal reflected my cart. My subtotal was $13 + shipping, but when I got my receipt, my card was charged for 2lbs and no shipping. That's why I wonder if there was a bug in the system that recognized the shipping charge as the "lowest priced item" and discounted it instead of the 2nd pound of coffee...I'll post an update when I hear back from Metropolis. I just wanted to see if anyone else was having this issue...

Just ordered  four assorted pounds. Got charged for two ands paid a bit over $9 for shipping. 4 pounds of coffee with shipping averaged a little more than $9 bucks a pound.

Hey folks,

I had the same problem with paying for both pounds. I emailed them and they have already issued me a refund for the second pound. I paid through PayPal, so maybe that threw a wrench in things.

At any rate, they fixed my problem very quickly, so I hope nobody gets scared off by the comments above.
