Green beans keep forever, and fresh roasted isn't difficult, it just takes a little practice. And the Tres Rios La Magnolia, freshly roasted and ground is really great this year.
No. Roasted.....I’m lazy. But I have the coolest antique coffee roaster though....if I had to, I could roast over an open fire.
I go to NH, and in the little village we frequent, they have the funniest little grocery store that sells *outdated* food. I can find whole-bean packs...never the same brand...for $2-3...not too bad a price.
My fam thinks I’m nutz! :)
