    anyone know where to get good roasted beans online?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi,
    does anyone have recommendations where to buy online roasted beans (i dont have a roaster so cant buy green beans!), for free delivery or cheap delivery? I know coffeecraft does it, and have ordered some from them already. Im looking predominantly for single origin coffees, not blends - as ive heard that some apparently arabica blends actually contain some robustica beans too? is that true?? or a myth???

    thanks for any advice/recommendations.

    organic, would be good.
    fair trade too.

    thanks again,
    LM

    1. Brown Bay on your left will have roasted SOs.
    2. Robusta can be great. Good Robusta is better than average Arabica IMHO.
    3. A local roaster is your cheapest delivery other than that Site Sponsors websites list postage costs or will be happy to clarify via email.
    4. Doesnt seem to be a huge margin in roasted beans so youll largely get what you pay for therefore discounts in one area like postage will result in more expense for the product or a trade off with quality. Site sponsors are your best option in this regard because they want positive experiences for members of this forum... for which they fund.

    Good luck!

    Depends on your location really. *Local CSrs would probably be happy to help, not to mention youd be exposed to a larger variety of coffee.

    I got a few that pop by every now and then. Helps reduce my stash, which is down to about 88kg at the moment.

    We are in isolated country NSW and we cannot beat the quick service and top quality roasted beans we get from Bean Bay Brown. Green beans service just as good.
    Information on Bean Bay as to when it is best to order for extra quick delivery. :)

    I think its amusing that you asked this question of a forum that started out with the sole purpose of distribution of beans around the country;D, as many have said before beanbay is a great option, easy to use and very fast delivery!, try the espresso WOW blend, IT....IS....AMAZING!!!!
    Cheers

    Bean bay is great and there is other stuff to buy too. Check it out.
    Andy works very hard to keep all us snobs happy. I usually get next day delivery which couldnt be better. If you want to avoid postage you will have to find a local roaster. Where do you live?

    You say you dont have a roaster but a popper and a starter pack wouldnt cost much and youll probably learn alot about beans too.

    I would personally go to my favorite coffee shop and get a few Kg of their beans and with that you know what your getting as your going to enjoy your coffee but thats just me, buying off the internet is great, i get all my games off online stores and ebay but coffee is not a disk it needs to be handled with care but this is just me

    Are you serious? You do realise youve joined a forum that is run by and sponsored by some of the nations most acclaimed roasters dont you?
    Andy Freeman doesnt have over 10000 members on his site from producing coffee not "handled with care" ;)
    Time to bring back the CS history thread me thinks! ;D

    I agree absolutely with WSully. *I have strayed to a couple of times to reputable local roasters, but always come back to Beanbay. I know exactly when its roasted and its delivered to me the next day in Melbourne. *The quality is fantastic, the price is good and there is the donation to Faircrack.

    There are some roasters that do sell the beans that they use to pull shots, but they are far and few between. They tend to be the types of cafes that serve single origins. The family owned small italian delis that serve passable espresso tend to source their beans elsewhere, and what you get from the vertical boxes may have been sitting there for longer than you think. Starbucks and GJ? Dont even think about it. Stale beans galore.

    I wonder how he thinks it gets to the cafe in the first place, before it swelters as the temperature hits 30+ degrees overnight? ;D
