You would be better of getting your coffee out of New Orleans, Seattle or Los Angeles if your on the west Coast.
I wouldn't recommend using any of the large box coffee companies. Deal with a broker directly!

This is one of our brokers, try them http://www.royalcoffee.com/

Hope this helps,
Randall

A friend of mine that used to work for a European coffee importer told me that European espresso has at least 15% robusta. North American blends tends to use only arabica but I am sure you can find some that use robusta if you look hard enough

I'm pretty sure there's a roaster in my area who uses a lot of robusta in their espresso... talk about a kick! ... felt like a shot of straight bourbon haha.

Not a fan though.. I'd prefer a SO shot or maybe a blend to bring out more flavor.. not bite.. i like the taste. But thats just me, to each their own.
