    Bean home delivery options?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi guys,

    I dont have a home roasting setup so I buy my roasted beans in small packages on a regular basis but its a time consuming business - particularly when I need to drive in from south east suburbs to di Bella in north melbourne!

    Has anyone here been particularly happy with any roasters home delivery/postage service? Itd be great if I could have my beans delivered but I dont want to compromise quality.

    Thanks!

    I always find this thread topic surprising, given that there are a dozen options <<<<<<<< in Bean Bay and that over 10 of the sponsors are also roasters....Not to mention that all of them can arrange delivery ::)

    Re: Bean home delivery options?

    To be fair, drcoffee is asking a specific question:

    Rather than just Where might I find roasted coffee for delivery.

    Sometimes the postage cost is significant and you might not want to shell out without a few first hand testimonials.

    To that end - I would recommend Coffeehit.
    I have grabbed some of their Daily Blend on a couple of occassions when I was out and found it to be quite good.
    Their shipping is around $10 for a kilo.
    Even better, if you are going near Doncaster Shopping Town, they have a store in there.

    Buying roasted beans from this very site has also been a positive experience for me!

    Brett.

    In which case, Id recommend us!

    I can usually get up to 2kg in an $11 postpack and ours is always fresh too...

    People seem to like it so I must be doing ok ;)

    Yes Chris BUT, once more I point to the original question which was asking:
    Has anyone here been particularly happy with any roasters home delivery/postage service?
    Im sure you have had positive experiences sending your own stuff out, and others have had a positive experience ordering from you.

    Have you had a positive experience ordering from one of the other sponsors?

    I know what you mean. Sometimes my local home roaster is too busy with other peoples requests to do his own ;-)
    Speaking of which.. I hope the weather holds out, Im off outside to do a couple of kilos now!

    I tend to use Bean bay, Andy is very quick at roasting and the delivery is fast( if hes not stuck in another country ;D ), prices are very good,
    and the coffee is to die for.

    Try Beanbay...my first run at Easter and its great stuff. Do to unforeseen flight issues the BeanBay roaster didnt make it back as planned. Grabbed some other freshly roasted stuff but blurgh.

    My tweet has been updated so I have arrived on the forum to find out whats being roasted to place my order.
    Try it, you wont regret it. :)

    Sadly, some roasters figure that green in and brown out = roasted...Its the difference between profiled and just browned...

    Andy works hard to find the best profile for everything he roasts and the proof is in every cup! [smiley=thumbsup.gif]

    If youre in Melbourne and you want to get coffee delivered to you, you can look interstate, seeing as postage times are good. I got some absolutely stunning coffee from Mecca Espresso in Sydney a few months ago.

    Cheers,
    Luca
