Total Delivered Price / pounds = price per pound.

Maybe at my age and situation my bewilderment level is more easily achieved at this time. :?


When I've looked at online roasters, the ones that don't charge additional for shipping seem to have a similar price / pound to those who do charge for shipping before the shipping is applied. At least thats been my experience. Of course it could also be that the roasters who don't charge for shipping may not have the same quality as those who do.

Done (thanks). Although maybe I should leave a few dead ends up to keep Randy on his toes... 8)

Shipping is very expensive. For example, for 1 lb of coffee, usps, the cheapest, charges over $7 for shipping on the west coast, even more for shipping on the east coast, I live in Portland, OR.
Companies that don't charge shipping coasts either eat the shipping costs or raise prices.
