A number of readers responding to my column today have tipped me off to another coffee bean source. One reader (thanks, Nan) wrote:
I wanted to share with you an amazing site to learn about and purchase coffee beans. Sweet Maria’s is located in Oakland, California and does all their business on-line. They sell “green” beans which you can roast at home, and also select roasted beans each week. They roast each Monday and you get the beans in the mail by Thursday—and certain varieties are the best I’ve ever tasted.
