The one pound for Royal is noted in the main post in the larger quantities section. To me the 1lbs are still samples.

https://royalcoffee.com/product-category/1lb-bags/

There is no discount for a 5 or 10lb purchase and they apparently ship in 1 lb bags. Also the shipping is not transparent on these. If you buy 10 lbs how do they charge for that?

If you order 22 one pound bags do you get free shipping like a 22 pound box?

If you can help me understand these things, I will update the main post.

Is there anything about Burman that stands out vs the others?

Michael - I'm not sure what might stand out about Burman to distinguish them from others, however, I have always had good experiences with their beans.

They do offer a limited and select set of what are Royal Crown Jewel offerings where you can buy 1, 2 or 50 lb if you wish. Here is one I've taken advantage of in the past

Look out on their page for CJ offerings and you will see them somewhat regularly.

They have real quality regular price $3.99/ lb and discounted sale offerings of Brazil, Colombia, Peruvian and other origin beans that make fantastic "comfort" low acid, high body chocolate caramel espresso blends for milk drinks. They are Jane's favorites over my "fancy" SO's and blends. My standard is 40% Brazil, 25% Sumatra and 35% Colombia or Ethiopia.

Geoffrey are you saying they offer the same beans as Royals Crown Jewels?

If so how do the prices and shipping compare?

How do you identify the Brazil, Colombia, Peruvian and other origin beans that make fantastic "comfort" low acid, high body chocolate caramel espresso blends for milk drinks??

Michael

My memory is not always trustworthy, however, I believe I've seen Royal bags in photos and the descriptions of the coffee are word for word identical with RCJ descriptions. The Bedhatu Jibicho is delicious as have been a few others I've tried.

As example, this Brazil if I needed more to blend would be a good candidate. I have not been disappointed for flat white's.

To be clear, I'm not saying they stand out over other popular sellers. Whoever picks their coffees and cups and offers tasting notes does a good job IMHO.

Ok great info and it does look like those descriptions are helpful and thorough.

One more question on shipping - do you know if the below prices would apply to a larger order - say 20lbs for which SM would charge 8.99 to deliver?


https://burmancoffee.com/customer-servi ... formation/


Burman Coffee ECONOMY - for customers that are not in a hurry to receive their beans we offer an economy shipping option for $7.49 per order. May ship SurePost, Speedee, UPS Ground, or Priority USPS - our choice.

Burman Coffee PREMIUM - for customers that want their orders a little faster, but still want to save. May ship UPS Ground or Priority USPS - our Choice - $8.49

Free Shipping on orders over $250

Some things to think about that may help the descriptions.

Klatch sells both green and roasted if you want to compare your skills.
Sweet Maria's and Roastmasters also sell coffee roasters, maybe some of the others do as well.

Chris there is a separate section for roasters selling greens:


Greens from Roasters so you can compare your roast to theirs
Metropolis Greenline - - This is their Redline coffee, 5# minimum, and it also comes in decaf.
Klatch
Paradise
Willoughbys is a sister company to Roastmasters and some of their roasted coffee can be purchased green.

I will have go through and add a section on those selling roasters themselves. Thanks.

Michael my take on some of Happy Mug's strengths: All organic. Quick turn-around and availability to the East Coast. Very well curated selection of beans at great prices. IMHO Matt has consistently demonstrated a talent for picking some real winners.

What about rhoads roast?

I've only ordered once from them but it was good. Free shipping in all orders. No minimum.

I added them. Seems like 5lb bags only. Thought the website was a bit busy for me.
