Frank, as Pogophiles states, Sweet Maria’s is a really good place to get beans, but more importantly…. Information. The prices are a little higher than I care to pay. I use http://www.coffeemaria.com and I am also a member of a green coffee co-op. People from all around the country pool their money to bid on entire bags of coffee direct from the importer. I never pay more than $3lb for even the most expensive varieties including shipping. The co-op also has members who cup each coffee before it is purchased to ensure we get only the best of the best.
Green coffee, stored properly, has a useable life span of about 2 years.. It never lasts that long with me. My friends and family love gifts of fresh roasted coffee and the wife and I use about 2lbs a week ourselves.
I recently built my own "Redneck Rotary Roaster" so I can now roast a pound of greens at a time vs. 1/2cup at a time with the popcorn popper.
I will be happy to help any who wants to learn how to roast their own.
