caffè nella mia casa canadese

Is there a Canadian program similar to Illy USA's "Illy A Casa" where good quality espresso-grind coffee can be automatically delivered to my home every 4-6 weeks?

The Illy website says it can not deliver outside the US and googling hasn't helped.

Surely there's a store or supplier somewhere in Canada where I get this! I am in Toronto if we are looking at a very localized seller.

The coffee in question doesn't have to be Illy - but should be at least a comparable product quality-wise.

É Café Canada? Also Birds and Beans (not sure about if they sell ground, but pre-ground and "good coffee" are sorta oxymoronic concepts, anyway.

This place has awesome coffee and will do scheduled shipments. I'm not sure of the exact details or if they have exactly what you're looking for but definitely worth a gander.

Ok, so I just checked that link and it doesn't mention the coffee deilvery. I know they used to offer it so maybe call them to make sure?

Comparable to Illy? We don't have to aim that low do we?

Look for a Canadian or US roaster that will ship to you. I'd start by asking the question on the Coffee Geek eastern Canada forum here.

From a quick look around there Dark City Coffee looks like the sort of place that might do what you ask.

Best answer: I've been getting my espresso beans from Peet's for many years - they will set up automatic deliveries. When I spent a few months in Switzerland they shipped the coffee there with no problems; I'm sure they can deal with a Canadian address.
