Which coffee bean is best
Coffee taste is based on the aroma first. This aroma has what is known as flavanoids that effect your sense smell differently than anyone else. The best coffee taste may be the one that smells the best. Sniff some beans in a bag to see which one you like best. Better yet, get a grinder and grind only enough for the amount you need. That makes the coffee much fresher tasting.

You will know the taste just by sniffing the roasted bean, yes I do agree with you

Are you a regular coffee drinker? If you are, and like the coffee your drinking, then you are drinking the coffee your sense of smell likes the most.

Green Coffee beans are those that have not been roasted yet. You can buy green coffee beans where they sell coffee beans like Trader Joe's if you have one near you. You will then need a coffee roaster. CoffeeMakersShop.com has an inexpensive one.

Remember, a lot of volatile compounds are lost when grinding. Smelling the coffee can give you a general idea of what the coffee will taste like, but you are going to loose a good portion of those to the air. This is why so many people exclaim that "they love the smell of coffee, but don't drink it." Marco has been talking about developing a "wet grinder" to capture those volatile oils which are normally lost to grinding. I will definitely second the idea of buying a grinder for yourself and promote getting a burr grinder as well. Pre ground coffee has far too much surface exposed to air, and coffee tends to be a self containing unit for only a few hours when ground, no matter the packaging. Un ground coffee is fairly good out to two weeks.
That's correct on the "Green coffee". Coffee is a small, high-moisture, seed before it is roasted. You can roast it yourself with very minimal costs. Sweetmarias.com has the best selection and, more importantly, information on this!

Your statements about the changes in coffee when the beans are ground is correct. It is always best to grind just enough coffee for what you need at each time you grind your coffee. By the way, does anyone know of a wholesale coffee roaster company?

With so many different coffee products available in the markets these days, picking the right beans can be a bit of a hit and miss experience.

Different Coffee products
There are only two types of coffee beans. Arabica (A rib e caa) and Robusta. Arabica beans have less caffeine and make a better aroma and flavor than Robustas. In my opinion, I like the dark roasted Arabica coffee best for its full bodied flavor. Try a few different drinks at a coffee shop like Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts. If they have a good barista there, they can help you narrow down what like or don't like more quickly.
