I was given a home coffee roaster as a gift 14 years ago, and after trying several smaller green coffee supplier sites, I found greenbeanery.ca and haven't ordered coffee from another supplier since. Their prices are reasonable (especially if you buy bulk volumes once you know the beans you like), they have lots of sampler pack options, and have a discounted "coffee of the month" every month. I have yet to find another supplier with such a wide breadth of beans to choose from!

I've also ordered coffee roasters from them (gifts and an upgrade to a bigger model), all of which arrived well packed with no damage or issues.

I would highly recommend this site!

I have been collecting vinyl for several years now, and Discogs has been my go-to for finding less-common to rare vinyl.

Firstly, their database is very expansive, so it is usually quite easy to find a specific pressing of a given album, and I love their setup to build a "my collection" list of my personal collection, as well as a "my wantlist" that includes the option of having them email you when items I'm looking for show up online...It's not perfect, as you can't set a price limit so that you're only notified if an item shows up for sale within a given price range, and it isn't great if you include readily available items in your wishlist, but for items that only show up occasionally it's an absolute blessing!

I don't know what it's like to be a seller on discogs, but as a buyer I've been very happy. I have personally purchased several dozen different records on discogs, and have only ever once received an item that I was less-than-satisfied with (it was a low-value item for a gift, was listed as VG+ and was more like G+). All my other interactions have been great! Note that most sellers grade their vinyl visually, so if you are incredibly stringent on what you expect for NM/VG+ then contact the seller to ask questions first, although many sellers actually grade their vinyl low to prevent complaints from the pickiest of collectors - most of the VG+ I've purchased has been closer to NM.

Obviously this is a marketplace, so you need to use some common sense when purchasing, but sellers need to have their account linked to a confirmed PayPal account so it's way safer than, say, craigslist.

I would highly recommend purchasing from here, or at least using their database to generate a "my collection".

I ordered an item for my niece's birthday that was listed as "In Stock" and estimated to arrive on Fri. The item not only didn't arrive but hadn't even been shipped! Contacted them only to find out that the issue is that they don't have it in stock and can't give me an updated estimated delivery date...that's bad enough, but here's the real bad part:

They won't let me cancel the order!! Their claim is that it can only be canceled within 30 min of placing the order, even though they did not live up to their end of the purchase agreement. All I can do it wait for it to ship and "refuse the delivery" and I'll be refunded when it returns to their warehouse. EXCEPT THAT IT'S NOT SIGNATURE REQUIRED, so it will just be left at my door.

My coworker had a similar experience and the item he ordered ended up not being shipped until 3 weeks after the estimated delivery date. Clearly this is not an isolated issue but a systemic problem. I will NEVER order from them again, and am warning everyone I know to avoid walmart.ca like the plague!
