    Hello coffeeforlife,

    I'm sure you'll get a lot of replies to your posting. There are quite a number of folks here in this forum who have a great deal of experience buying and selling coffee on line.

    Although it's convenient to buy coffee beans on-line, it may be to your advantage to find a local roaster where you can buy small amounts of freshly roasted beans at a time.

    I haven't been able to explore the forum as much as I would like lately, but last night I finally had a chance to read some of the recent postings, and I read a posting from someone from Ohio who offers free shipping. That's always one of the considerations when you're buying on-line.

    Take some time to look through some of the other coffee forum postings. You'll find a lot of people who sell beans on-line who have a wealth of knowledge and experience. Plus you can always check out their web sites and compare.

    I'm reluctant to buy my coffee on-line because I want to see the roasted beans before I buy them. For example, one roaster's version of "mediun roast," can turn out to be quite different from someone elses. I got "burnt" a few times when I ordered on-line, and I hesitate to try it again.

    Good Luck.

    I can personally recommend the following roasters as I've used them & been very happy with their coffees.

    http://www.intelligentsiacoffee.com/

    http://www.ptscoffee.com/

    http://www.sweetmarias.com/prod.roasted.html

    http://www.terroircoffee.com/

    A couple more that I plan to try in the future as they have an excellent reputation.

    This site may prove helpful when trying to decide what to order:

    When buying on line request Priority Mail shipping if delivery is more then 3 days from you using UPS. Also make sure that the beans are roasted & shipped the same day. All of the above work that way & put the roast date on the bag.

    Hi JohnB,

    Thanks for the list of coffee roasters!

    A few months ago I started to make a list of coffee websites that I wanted to check out, and I thought I saved it on my computer, but it seems to have disappeared. Now I can use your list instead of spending time looking for mine!

    Thanks again.

    Rose

    Hello,

    One place that I'd stay away from is http://www.zaccardis.com

    When I bought my new Capresso Infinity grinder, I also ordered Papua New Guinea coffee beans from them. When they arrived, they were very darkly roasted .... so much that they smelled burnt when I opened the package. The coffee tasted burnt too. I contacted customer service and complained, and they said that it was the way they roasted the beans, and they offered me a 10% discount on my next order. Fat chance....

    I eventually bought the Papua New Guinea beans from a local roaster and I've been very happy with the coffee ever since.

    I have done business with Barrington but I wasn't crazy about their Gold & Decaf Gold Espresso so I left them off my list.

    Gevalia Coffee

    Gevalia Coffee is my favorite!! Its so nice that they ship it every 2-4 weeks and you can customize your shipments. I like there dark roast and some of their seasonal flavors.

    If you buy coffee from them regular they also ask if you want to reserve coffee from their crown collection like African Moon and Ethiopia Spice.

    I have tried a couple other memebership coffees but I really like gevalia. Let me know what you think....

    online coffee roaster in the UK

    Not sure where you are based, but all those listed already are in the US (i think!)

    If you are in the UK, we at Londinium Espresso would welcome the opportunity to exceed your expectations

    And if you just have some coffee related questions, feel free to ask away without obligation.
