Subject: Help finding roasters!!
 

I just moved from Illinois where I had access to a pretty large share of great roasters (Metropolis, MadCap, Intelligentsia, Thirty-Thirty etc. etc.), but I have recently moved to the "middle of nowhere Colorado" (Gunnison, CO to be precise). I am finding the lack of good roasters that are accessible to me to be extremely depressing and my coffee habit/hobby are suffering.

So my question is this - Anyone out there have recommendations of roasters that offer Free Shipping on their websites? I know it's a bit of a tough question, but shipping really kills most online coffee purchases - so I'm looking for ones that offer free shipping.

If anyone has any thoughts/recommendations - or just wants to chat coffee. Let me know!

For one pound at a time I do not know of any.. I have had special .... limited time offer free shipping on a few purchases when buying over 5 pounds at a time but for smaller I have not purchased from any vendor who provides free shipping.

Have you looked into buying large lots then freezing? It is a method of purchasing that works for me. YMMV!

Hi SXOT:

Hope your move went well; sorry to hear you're no longer in our neck of the woods!

If you ever do want to stock up on coffee, we offer free shipping on orders over $50 (prior to tax/shipping).

Pax,
Seth

You'll have to look around there quite a few that offer free shipping at a modest price point you just need to look around. The few off the top of my head...

Temple Coffee Roasters, offers free shipping on orders over $25.00 so two 12 oz bags.

Verve Coffee Roasters offers free shipping on all of their coffee regardless of the size of the order.

Equator offers free shipping over $35

Social Coffee offers over $30

Those are the ones off the top of my head. Anyway no idea where you are in Colorado, but look for Novo they are pretty good! ;)

 
Less water, more grounds.

Bumping this topic - looking for more options! I did try Verve and was fairly impressed with one of the two bags I got. Anyone else have more suggestions for me??

maybe look for a subscription? you generally get a discount on beans as well as shipping with 3-6 month subscriptions.
