best place to buy coffee near downtown?

nooodles | Jan 3, 200505:36 PM

I've run out of my precious Hawaiian Kona coffee beans, and I'm not terribly excited at the prospect of having to haul myself to Trieste or Grecco in NB to find half a pound of roasted beans.

Where in the downtown area can I find some decent whole beans? The Ferry Building? Peet's is fine, but I'd like to try something new--it is absolutely vital this this coffee have no bitter aftertaste, at least the first time I use it. If I let it sit in my cabinet and it gets bitter, that's my own darned fault. But the first cup needs to be sheer perfection: dark, rich, and almost sweet before I add sugar or cream.
