Posted Wed Aug 21, 2013, 8:50pm 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!
