Dispatch Coffee Roasters: 50% off first order (subscription)

Deal Link:
Savings:
50%
Retailer:
Dispatch Coffee
It's not Kicking Horse or Ethical Bean, this isn't grocery store coffee so it's not going to be $10 a lb whatever

This is fresh roasted and delivered, the difference in taste is huge.

First order is 50% off (FIRST50), then after cancel your subscription and redo it to do STAYHOME35 for 35% off after, comes to $13 afterwards which really isn't bad! It's $3 more for grocery store "premium" coffee but delivered to your door.

I picked "roaster's choice" so I can be surprised every month. Variety is the spice of life.

Big difference in taste? I'm not convinced. Overpriced coffee is just that -- and marketing. But it subjective and to each their own.

Personally, I'm going to stick to the President's Choice ground coffee, which happens to be on sale again this coming flyer week for $6.99 for a big tub. Face Savouring Delicious Food

Way too pricey. Purely marketing. I think store brands are perfectly good.

FYi, it's 333g in the bag not 454g. At $35 for 4 bags (equivalent of 3 x 1lb bags), I will try it anyway... good price still (and convenient), but I'll cancel after.

Also FYI, it says "all our coffees are medium-light roast".

Depends on your taste. With a deal, doesn't hurt to try once. I agree at full price, it's steep even if they market it as "cheaper than going out to a coffee shop!" at $1 a cup.

If I go grocery store, Longo's actually roast their own coffee in store and it's awesome. Some locations offer it, but their own coffee is all roasted in house anyways.

Its just like bread, some enjoy fresh baked in store...some are okay with Wonder Bread.

I mean, I think the discussion ends here :lol:

Any coffee connoisseur would not buy ground coffee.

I'm a big fan of the Canadian variety for 7$. It's what I get when Eight O'clock is not on sale.

Interesting tidbit. When Second Cup was first opened it's strategy was to portray itself as quality/upscale coffee. It did this through a higher price. I'd argue this is also the strategy Starbucks has used.

It would be a shame if this coffee was only marginally better than the value stuff I buy, but I have never had it. Kudos to them if they're able to emperor's new clothes enough people into buying their coffee.

As with every purchase, if you like it and can afford it, then that's fantastic. I just do think these prices are particularly close to fair market value.

What does subscription here mean? You have to buy every month?

Out to lunch prices and I buy a lot of coffee beans.

Buy from Equator coffee roasters if you want some really good coffee at a more reasonable price.
