What are some good sources for fresh roasted coffee beans? I am not yet ready to become a home roaster and am curious as to the best sites for ordering freshly roasted beans. Please weigh in.

I haven't bought roasted coffee since I started roastng my own. However, many homeroaster in a pinch will buy Stumptown.

Mocha Joe's of Brattleboro, VT. I know of none better.

Their Villa Borghese Espresso is my favorite. It's not listed on their website but if you ask for it, they'll send it to you.

Some good suggestions here as Intelligentsia is a favorite of mine and I enjoy Stumptown as well. I highly recommend Verve Coffee Roasters of Santa Cruz. For reasons unknown to me they offer free shipping on coffee. You don't even need a coupon code.

My local roaster is Cumberland Valley Coffee. Shipping is free for me but I have no idea what kind of price it would be to mail it out. They don't roast the beans until they are ordered. As I don't want to get into home roasting at this point this is the next best thing for me.

Tonx actually has nice beans if you want automatic delivery.

The Mexican Organic that Whole Foods sells is excellent as well, especially if you like a city roast.

Being on the West Coast I expect you are used to drinking a darker roast, which I never could understand (I like my coffee strong, not burnt). Suggest you try out a city roasts - a few online shops to check out:

I buy Kona beans from rojokona on eBay. They roast them right after you place your order.

Last time I was in Southern California, my girlfriend and I popped in at the Whole Foods in El Segundo. To my surprise, it appeared that they roasted beans right there.

Maybe something to look in to!

I go to that particular Whole Foods fairly frequently (it is on the way home from the Dog Park). I will take a look.

That store is the most fantastic Whole Foods I've ever been in.
