    You should solve that problem by roasting your self. It is quite easy to learn and you will always have fresh coffee. You can start for real cheap with a whirleypop popcorn maker (been doing it that way for about a year and a half now). If a coffee shop doesn't know when their own beans were roasted that doesn't sound very comforting to me.

    I've actually started tossing that idea around some. Garage sale season is coming up so I told the wife if she runs across an air popcorn popper to call me and I'd come look at it.

    I've actually asked at least one employee from each of the coffee shops if they knew when the beans were roasted and none of them could tell me.
