Coffee & Tea 10

Your Favorite Source for Roasted Coffee Beans.

Good morning friends,

I recently returned for a two week trip to the Kona coast on the Island of Hawaii. Aside from escaping the hellish winter we've been enduring here, one of my goals for this trip was to start drinking coffee. In my life, my coffee consumption had totaled maybe 1/2 cup, but I figured there was no better place to start. Nearly every day, we made the short trip to Greenwell Farms (HIGHLY recommended, if you're ever on the Big Island) and I tried out most of their offerings. I ended up taking some beans home, bought myself a hand grinder, a Chemex setup, the whole nine. I'm loving it, but I'm running out of Kona stock.

What I'd like to find is a local spot for freshly roasted beans. I live in Stillwater, but I don't mind making the drive somewhere on the weekend. I've heard good things about Peace Coffee, and I've actually seen their beans at Cub, but I assume those aren't the most freshly roasted. All recommendations are welcome.

For the record, I don't need much in terms of volume. I'm using ~32 grams of beans a day, enough to make one travel mug worth.
