At least to my knowledge these complaints against Slate remain unresolved. https://sprudge.com/citing-a-toxic-work ... 46039.html

Have you tried Caffé d'Arte? They use traditional Italian-style roasting methods. Dark, but not as charred as Starbucks, and the resulting brews are not as acidic/sour as the currently-popular "third wave" espressos.

I think most of their product is sold to the restaurant trade. But they have a cafe in Pioneer Square (Seattle), where you can buy whole beans. Some of the Seattle-area QFC grocery stores carry their coffee, under the "Capri" branding. But who knows how long it's been sitting on the shelf.
