Do you have any recommendations of an outlet for Italian roast espresso beans in Los Angeles ??? I'm looking for dark, oily, and fragrant - old school.

Is there any reason you would not buy Kimbo, Saka, or any of the other Neopolitan espresso roasters online?

No, I'm just used to buying locally. I'd like to find a local provider that I can return to regularly when I'm in LA visiting the grandkid. But thanks for the suggestions. I'll take a look at them. What are some other Neopolitan roasters online ???

The Ongoing HB Thread has a lot of info. I'm no expert, so I only know the famous ones. Beyond Saka and Kimbo, Passalaqua's Mexico is iconic. They are all available on line, from various vendors, including Amazon.
