    I haven't found any that were local to me, I think there is a decent one out towards Boston that is about an hour away from me. I've been sampling various roast-to-order places that ship the same day your order is roasted. Sometimes it can take a week to get here though when they are on the opposite coast.

    The Phoenix, AZ area sucks ASS when it comes to good coffee shops. I know of a local roaster but it's too far.

    Coffee Rush at Gilbert/Baseline is my favorite! Not sure if they roast their own but they make a damn fine cup of joe. Not to mention, you get a free 20oz coffee drink when you buy a pound ($8.99). Now that's a deal!

    Two places in Nashville for roast coffee. Bongo Java Roasting Company and Bean Central. I imagine most roasters will sell green beans.

    There is Alterra Coffee in Milwaukee, WI. Might make a stop there tomorrow as I still need to bite the bullet and buy some green beans to roast

    Hawai'i is famous for some of the world best coffee and a good friend of mine is a roster. Tom Sharkey grows beans here in Hilo, Hawaii and makes a medium and dark roast. He roasts some Kona coffee as well which is smoother imo.
    Not sure of his website.

    HOWEVER the best DARK Espresso roast I have ever had, without a close second is the region of the Big ISland known as KAU. It's called the John Bull roast, after a fella who lived in the Kau district I believe.

    Uncle Jimmy Decallo roasts the meanest dark roast, it's unparalleled in flavor and smoothness. www.kaucoffee.com is their site.

    I am taking the time to write this because these are fellow Farmer Market Vendors whose products are superb.
    I have my own food business/kava kava business.

    LOL, I see I replied back in January. Oh well. Post hohohoing with a little more info this time.

    Nashville, TN

    Bongo Java Roasting Company BJRC It's in the Bongo Java Coffee shop in East End. Nice people. They roast for local consumption as well as both of their shops. They will sell green beans too.

    Bean Central - Just up the road from BJRC. Primarily an local and internet sales site. They have a huge home made style natural gas roaster. It does a fine job and they can do up to 50 lb jobs. They also sell green beans.

    Drew's Brews - Haven't made it to his shop yet. He sells to local shops. I get his roasted beans through my favorite coffee shop, Crema. His Zappia Family Espresso (named after his grandparents) is a six bean blend that my espresso shop uses. Smooth, creamy, sweet. Just fantastic.

    Always! The only way to get serious crema out of your espresso is to use really fresh beans, not the stuff that's been sitting in the grocery store for God knows how long. We had a great small roaster near our old house that made a great espresso roast that was less expensive than retail and they were buy 10 lbs get one free. I just learned there is a small roaster about 45 minutes from our new house which will make for a perfect trip on my bike.
