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).
By the way if you have not clicked on the link yet http://www.roaste.com/content/ROASTe-Prime
you get free shipping on all orders for six months for just under $20. The great thing is that it does not matter how little you order.
Combine this with the 100% satisfaction guarantee and Roaste is offering quite a bit of value!
