Not really Mike,

He'd then have a big shipping charge, duties & taxes on that $67.87 USD.

He'd be better off buying in Canada from the Greenbeanery right here in Toronto for $103.90 CAN: Click Here (www.greenbeanery.ca)


P.S. I just checked shipping charges at 2:40pm & they (EPNW Espresso parts.com) only ship to Canada by Fedex & the cost is $35.48 to my postal code here in Northwest Toronto.

P.P.S. Welcome to the Coffeegeek forums Brian! {;-)

Wow!  $35 shipping charge for something that weighs less than a pound is just crazy.  I didn't realize shipping to Canada was such a big deal.  I don't remember any such problems going the other way.

There's been lots of discussions on the forums here about how Canadians get screwe*, blued & tattooed by the exorbiant brokerage & shipping charges that UPS & FedEx charges shipping from the US to Canada.

It would be no sweat & cheap to ship by good ol' USPS, but they don't do that anymore.. {;'-(
