Central Milling organic AP flour in stock now at Costco in Portland, Ore.!
After badgering my local Costco with a number of suggestion cards about carrying something other than bleached and bromated flours, I'm happy to say that the Clackamas Costco now has Central Milling's organic AP flour in stock. That is exactly what I was hoping for, and I have to thank the numerous TFL posters who have mentioned being able to get this flour at their Costco stores in California, Colorado and other states. It's two 10# packages of flour, with a cost per pound of 62.5¢. That is a real bargain for a great flour.
I'm pretty confident in saying the flour is the same as Central Milling Beehive organic, which has a protein content of 10.5% and has gotten rave reviews from many bakers, especially for artisan loaves.
I don't know if other Portland or Oregon Costco locations are stocking the flour. And I'm probably hoping against hope that my store will restock it when the pallet is empty. So if you live and bake in Portland -- and are also a Costco member -- get out there and buy some of this flour.
