A selection (chosen by us each day) of 4 or 8 different coffees, one pound each.
Trying a sampler is the best way, in my opinion, to get started home roasting, especially if you are not sure what coffee to choose. We can not promise a particular origin in the sampler.
In the 4 Pound and 8 Pound Samplers we try to include a coffee from every coffee growing continent and a range of processes. Some folks have suggested that having a larger quantity of a single bean that takes a range of roasts is a better way to learn roasting -- I think getting a range of flavors so you can start to see the difference origin makes is better. The choice is up to you really. Limit one sampler per order (since we cannot ensure against duplicates if you order multiple samplers.)
You will be prompted below to choose the coffees you want in the sampler - all regular, all decaf, half decaf/half regular, or espresso. There is a slight surcharge for the decaf options - both all decaf and 1/2 decaf - since these are more expensive coffees.
Please note that if you choose the Espresso sampler - we send some of our Sweet Maria's blends, and some single origins considered good for espresso. The selection in this option is more narrow, tailored for demands of espresso brewing and the 4lb espresso sampler will be mostly/all espresso blends.
