I was in Whore Foods the other day and noticed that they now sell a few varieties of Swing's packaged coffee at rational prices (no exorbitant shipping charges for mail order). I looked at a couple of packages and didn't see a roasting date. Is anyone buying it there? Is it reasonably fresh? I don't crave it badly enough to go to the downtown DC store and I don't think they sell out of the Alexandria roasting plant - but I'd go there if they do.
I think I've seen it at Balducci's, too, but they're usually even more expensive than WF.
