When I filled out the short form, which does not ask for an address (only your E-mail) it says "You will be contacted shortly."

This is possibly a scam*. Absolutely NO contact info provided anywhere on this website, no address, no phone number, nothing. Says it's a Calgary business. So... I did a Whois and came up with this:
(*scroll to bottom for what I concluded)
Queried whois.godaddy.com with "caffemonte.com"...

Google the Canadian address provided in the WhoIs, there are several businesses at that location, including one called Select Coffee Service. There is a website here which describes this as a commercial business providing equipment and supplies to businesses and the hospitality industry. This would explain the form on the Caffe Monte website, the sample is most likely intended for business and hospitality industry owners/managers who are interested in the product. Generally, Food Service distribution is through area distribution and supply warehouses, and samples are often provided through that distribution channel, not through mail or other shipping services, a shipping/mailing address isn't needed. So, they need to discuss with you who your area distributor is, and about the type of business operation you have. And being a Canadian company, they may or may not distribute outside of Canada, so this may be restricted to Canadian business.
Conclusion? Not a 'consumer' freebie, possibly only available to Canada. Also, right at the top of the Cafe Monte website page, right above the pic of coffee in a cup, it states "We know our beans, that's why we work directly with suppliers to give you the ultimate quality" before the background changes to the mountain peak.
