Any fellow Canadians buy their coffee beans online? I normally buy mine at some of the local coffee shops around town but the selection isn't the best and it is not always the freshest. Because of this, I am thinking about getting some from the internet. Are there any sites (who ship to Canada) that you folks recommend which carry decently fresh coffee?
@markhole: Coffees of Hawaii usually has some pretty good coffee in my experience. they do seasonal roasts and you can almost always find coupon codes for free shipping or %s off.
@markhole: I think there was a topic about this on the old forums. Could still be around.
My suggest here as it was there (from @will) is Elysian Coffee (from Vancouver). They rotate the blend every week but ship only whole beans.
@HeadNodShy: I did a couple searches because I thought I remembered such a thread No Luck
@MAGZine: Just orders a couple 8oz bags of Kona and a Bag of Ka'u Loa! You had me at coupon.
I will probably check out Elysian when this is all gone.
Kicking Horse coffee, has anyone else had it? It's my favourite brand.
Yep, Kicking Horse is good stuff. I also like Big Mountain Coffee. You can find both in most grocery stores in Alberta.
I've never tried ordering beans online. Maybe will give that a shot at some point.
Have you tried Twice Coffee Subscription?
They ship 2 bags of coffee from 2 popular roasters every month... and they ship for free to Canada & the US...
@jbrisebois: I have not tried this. Have you? Any good?
I am very intrigued...
@markhole: Thats easy, I order mine from Eco Cafe and its shipped direclty from Costa Rica. (www.eco-cafe.com) They have organic and fair trade Costa Rican coffee in single server, ground or wholebean. Check em out.
