Thanks for the tip. I am primarily looking for beans already roasted. While I'm sure that I'll get into roasting my own some day, I don't want to go there quite yet. I just need to get some "good" freshly roasted beans that don't cost too much to practice on for a while. I am finding that my skills for pulling a consistent shot have a long ways to go and it bothers me to be wasting good beans. I've gone through about 6 pounds of Paradise beans, with maybe 25% of the shots in the "really good" category, 50% in the "OK to Good" range and the rest in the "I want to cry" range. An acquaintance of mine told me I should try CCM. He said they have some pretty good beans, better than anything I could find at the local store, and they are very reasonably priced.
