Even though I've enjoyed Pallet's coffee beans in the past, I always find it difficult to order from other roasters on a price-per-gram basis now that I've discovered Agro.
Agro on the regular sells 340g for $17 and 2lb/908g for $40 with roast dates basically the day before it's shipped. I've not noticed a difference in quality between Agro and other roasters but I'll admit, I've never done a side-by-side comparison.

Honestly bewildered at how Agro keeps their price so low compared to other roasters.

Agro is my go-to when I need to re-up and I can't find a sale at any other roaster.

Just ran out of Pilot so this is perfect.

Ordered 3 bags for $50 shipped.

Next time will try Agro instead of waiting for a sale!

what's with 340gr ? that's 1 week if you are single and half if you are a family. Still, weird number that I don't get at all. Unless you all are subscribed to receive it weekly.
I use voice typing, expect mistakes...

Price point stays around $20, and under $20 on sale; and you always have a fresh bag.

Thanks OP. Great deal for sure if you need 2-4 day fresh roasts.

Donald's Market and Welks has them similarly priced regularly if you need bags right away. Sometimes slightly older roasts 1-2 weeks out, but better for expresso based drinks imo.

Most specialty roasters sell in 340g bags (12 oz in American). Some now are in 250g bags in order to meet a $20 price point.

And when you get a new bag probably wasting 10-20% just dialling in the grind.

How much coffee are you drinking? 340 grams at a "typical" 15 gram pourover is nearly 23 servings at 240-255 grams of output. I solo brew specialty coffee and one of these bags lasts me probably ~3 weeks, and lately that has been with 18 gram to 288 gram output brews with a Hario Switch.

Even if you were to go through 36 grams per day (two 18 gram brews) you're still looking at 9.5 days to get through 340 grams.

I've tried all these craft roasters, like Hale, Pallet, Pilot, Java, De Mello, Propeller, Reunion, etc, and I like Hale the most. But with all this hyper-inflation going on, grogeries are getting way too expensive, so I decided to try other beans. The one that surprised me the most was Farm Boy organic beans. They have similar aroma profiles as the small batch roasters, but it's much more affordable... considering... and their beans are fully washed process, no oily/glaze to them.

At $15.99 for a 454g bag regular price, can't go wrong if you need to save some here and there, but not quite ready for Costco beans yet.

I roast my own coffee (light-medium roast only) and I drink about 2-3 cups of double-shot latte per day + whatever wify drinks + guests. We go through a lot. But then I buy 20lb+ at a time of green beans.

I don't understand why many roasters don't show the roast level of their various coffees. I only like light to light-med roasts, filter or espresso is not a good indication of roast level. It's too bad because i've passed up a lot roasters that probably have great coffee.

I think it may be because there is some amount of subjectivity about that. A traditional medium may be considered medium-dark by more new-school people/roasters.

I only drink filter. I usually interpret filter as medium-light. I only expect light if it specifically says it.

Any time I have ordered a coffee that says suitable for espresso or filter it as been too dark for the filter I like.
Outlaw ellipses and apostrophes.

Now, you've got ven more options whn paying for transit with PRESTO contactless payment on UP Express.

Where do you buy your green beans from if you don't mind sharing?! I'm in the same boat and need to find an affordable way to keep up with the amount I drink!

Same. I only buy from Agro. They raised their prices at the end of last year, but it's still cheaper than everyone else even when there are sales like this.
I can't really tell the difference between an Agro single-origin Ethiopian Guji and a, for example, Pallet single-origin Ethiopian Guji. Both excellent.

Tip: Agro offers 10% discount for subscriptions. I always just place a subscription order and then cancel the subscription immediately. This may make it a bit harder to hit the $40 free shipping threshold depending on what you buy though.

I think they choose to gouge their customers just a tiny bit instead of a lot. Like, their prices are great relative to other single-origin roasters, but it's still not exactly cheap. A big bag of beans from Costco are MUCH cheaper :P

Agro also supplies many shops in the Vancouver area - more than Timbertrain, Pallet, and others it seems - so maybe they've achieved some economies of scales that others haven't.

this is why i always have trouble with the idea of buying more than one bag at a time.
i do exactly what you said with 15g a day. most subscription services are for 2 bags or more, so i dont want my second bag going stale by the time it's halfway through.

Thank you. Will try it out

I have yet to settle on a roaster! I am trying different ones every time and can’t seem to find this pure taste without any significant notes.
