Green Beans

Postby MDixon » Sat Jul 23, 2011 6:53 am

What is going on?

I must admit it has been awhile since I purchased Green Beans. I've purchased from MoreCoffee and some other places. Then Costco roasted was less than the green beans and I purchased roasted until recently the price became much, much higher than the green beans I had in inventory and I returned to home roasting. Last night I went to look at the prices to source some beans and was shocked. Costco is STILL less than purchasing green beans.

Anyone got a great bean source which is inexpensive? (By inexpensive I mean less than $5/lb delivered.)

this place gets you close if you buy in bulk, and the shipping estimator says 25lbs+ gets you free shipping. im not sure what kind of shelf life green coffee beans have but it mite be worth it. or you can wait for costco to start selling green coffee beans, hahaha.

I just bought some Yirgacheffe and some Peruvian from this guy....http://cgi.ebay.com/Bolivian-Caranavi-f ... 2566570103 I was kind of skeptical since the seller had a low feedback rating but the beans arrived yesterday!

$3.66 /lb delivered is a great deal.

Didn't take me long to pull the trigger on that one...6lbs of beans will last me for awhile!

Any new ideas? That guy on ebay appears to have sold all he had.
