Most will agree, not many people can match what George Howell puts out. If you really want to treat yourself to something amazing, you'll need to lurk around his site a bit and get in on a limited offering roast. His stuff is fantastic.
Another idea is to see if any big names are roasting that Ethiopian Yirg Konga, because it's beyond anything else I've tried lately. It's a bargain relatively, for it's bang for the buck ratio too. If it stays this good as my first attempt ( and likely will get better with practice) then I'd rather have 20lbs of it instead of only 10!
I am glad you really liked that Brown Coffee, unforunately the bag that I brought to the meet up really paled in comparison to the first time I had it. Had I known it was going to fall off so much in two months I would've order some more then instead of waiting. Like you said it was still really good, just not as good. (As an aside, Brown sells greens)
Thanks for other recommendations I will take them to heart over the next couple months while placing my orders.
