Especially mail order... Do you roast your own?
I am a huge fan of Vermont Coffee Company and Green Mountain Coffee Roasters. Vermont Coffee Co has a dark roast that is to die for.
Porto Rico Importing Company. www.portorico.com
I am fortunate enough to live near one in Greenwich Village. Organic Peruvian French Roast.
which method do you use, ChefOno?
My mom (a coffee fanatic) orders them from here: http://www.singingrooster.org/
On the Chicago Mercantile exchange trading floor.
I've never roasted my own beans. My favorite beans to buy - www.javaloveroasters.com I like them better than Gorilla coffee. But Gorilla is a close second. www.gorillacoffee.com
I'm a huge fan of La Colombe Torrefaction. They do mail order, have it in their shops, Whole Foods and other gourmet shops.
My favorite coffee is Kenya coffee. A couple of times a year I treat myself to a bag of single field Kenya beans from Intelligentsia. (It's pricy!) Other times I buy the Kenya AA at Zabars. I like how they roast their beans, and their prices are very good.
I like freshly-roasted Sumatra from Whole Foods in NY. They roast their own and post the roast date. Otherwise, Gorilla, or Irving Farms. But would be very tempted to try to roast my own per Chef Ono.
