Where do you buy your beans?

I'm looking for a company that provides quality beans (roasted) at decent prices with dependable shipping. I definitely want one that allows us to use our own brand name on retail bags. Who do you guys use? I've seen a lot of suggestions around the forums, but nothing that stands out as the best above and beyond.

IMHO If cost of beans is an 'inhibiting' factor, you're in the wrong business.
The difference between absolute crap at $6.00 per pound and top end coffee at ~ $9.00 or more a pound is $.12 per cup (double shot). Charge .15 to .20 more than you would have, and the value will far exceed the price. Especially if you are wanting to re-brand with your label. If you serve average quality beans, your name will be forever associated with that, on the other hand, if you serve quality/excellent beans, your name will be associated with that. Average or Excellence. It's an important distinction to make before you source.

You could always roast your own. :grin:
