I hope it okay to ask for suppliers on here, but while in London recently I found an online retailer who sold small quantities freshly roasted coffee beans to order, or even just green unroasted beans. I don't have the most discerning of palettes but the aroma and bean quality really did seem that much fresher and better. I wonder if there are some US suppliers that will roast fresh to order too that anyone would recommend?
I'm in Philadelphia and I will look for a local supplier too as I imagine there must be one. I eventually want to roast the beans myself though I'm a long way from doing that.
