Cool new feature - Roaste Prime!

October 05, 2011

This is a blog post about a cool new feature on Roaste (or at least it is new to me, but I think it is new to Roaste, too) Roaste Prime.


Roaste prime is a great deal in my book.  If you want to explore a bunch of the new coffees on Roaste you are now in a better position to do so.  Roaste already has a great deal on shipping, but it usually requires ordering at least two bags of coffee.  If I do not know a vendor yet that makes me nervous since that is quite a bit of coffee to drink if you do not end up liking it.  On the other hand if it is a coffee you already know you love two bags is not bad a bad thing, but it probably is still more coffee than I can drink at its peak of flavor.  I do not mind this too much because freezing in mason jars or else in some other very air tight container will keep the coffee tasting great, but even so, I would much rather drink all my coffee freshly roasted.  I could only do this if I could get away with ordering only one pound at a time.  I can drink one pound in a week, which is usually keeping it fairly close to peak.  


Now I can try a given vendor’s best rated coffee without having to order two bags and not have to pay shipping.  


I think this should lead to quite a few more “what I am drinking now posts” featuring coffees on Roaste.  To me that is quite exciting.  I love trying new coffees.  


This feature pays for itself after less than four bags of coffee (but then again just over three bags so I suppose since you cannot place 3.1 orders it really pays for itself after exactly four bags).
