Sweetmaria's incl shipping and taxes is $375 for a Behmor. This is their starter pack which includes free green as well.

If your not picky on beans I would start with some 10 lb bags.  This is considered wholesale at Greenbeanery.  Their regular coffee's like Brazil & Ethiopia's are great. I LOVE their Brazil Santos! It's a low grade bean but it tastes amazing at FC! Once you get your hands dirty for a while I would start looking at larger orders from distributors.

Example:  Their Brazilian Cerrado is a higher grade bean.  10 LB is $46.20.  $4.60 /lb, .20 per cup or espresso.  That's pretty cheap!  Once you do some research on whats good out there you can get the best locally at places like Greenbeanery.

I've ordered from Green Beanery a couple of times and it seems that they are more geared towards small commercial roasters as opposed to individual people. I've not had any experience with them personally, I've only ordered online and both times they were well packed and arrived earlier than quoted. You just have to do a bit of research beforehand as their webside is a bit bare boned.

Their shipping charges seem to be a bit out of whack though. I can get 2 10lbs bags of coffee (or 1 20lbs bag) with less shipping cost than 5 2lbs bags. If you want to order from them, go for 1 or 2 wholesale quantities of coffee.

True, way better deal on the Behemor elsewhere, so I really don't understand their reasoning. 299 at Sumas Mountain coffee, 349 at espresso planet and 349 shipping included at Idrinkcoffee.

I think I'll stick with Sweet Maria's for now for beans until I have a better idea of what I want. after that the 10 lbs + orders look reasonably priced.

Companies simply wanna make a profit. Nothing more.  Regardless of where you buy it I promise once you have one and your roasting like crazy you won't even care what you paid.  Roasting on my own I have literally saves over $1,000 in the last year or so just roasting for myself and the odd batch for a friend.  If you buy from SM's use USPS.  If you can't and you end up using UPS you may end up with a large COD.  If that's the case just buy from Idrinkcoffee.ca and I will sell you some green coffee in May when I order. ;p

I find pricing to be a reflection of company practice as well. So outside of paying more it just does not impress me and I tend to shy away from them unless there is a clear advantage that offsets the price. I'll actually be ordering from Sumas Mountain coffee. They sound pretty neat and they are in BC. Also the lowest canadian price at 299.

As for greens, keep me posted.
