I can highly recommend Heart Roasters -- Stereo Seasonal Blend or Guatemala El Amate -- and Nossa Familia's Full Cycle. After going 2-for-2, I plan to order from Compass later this week.
Both Compass and Nossa Familia offer H-B discounts of 20%. Difficult to pass up if you ask me.
So I remembered a thread about this. Just ordered from them, Vesuvius. Too dark for me, lowered temp to 197 but still has a smoke/ashy taste though not as bad as when I had temp at 204 and it tasted like cigarette smoke lol. I would give their Crema Dolce a chance though as thats pry what I should have ordered.espressoonmymind wrote:I've got a 5lb of the Crema Dolce, will get a bag of Vesuvius next... good pricing, good non-acidic cup.

Talk about cocoa and was the biggest doubles I've seen. Made on a manual Mirage Idrocompresso the woman new how to pull down on that grip.
