Where can one get espresso beans roasted on premises in Boston area?


My impression is that "Italian roasts" done in the US are not at all
like what is used in Italy. Comments, anyone ?


Thanks

Many Whole Foods kets (including the one on Washington street in
Newton) roast their own beans. Also check out Armeno in Northboro.

Yes, Terroir Coffee
There Daterra, North Italian Style Espresso is highly recommended.
It's $13 a bag, and there bags are only 12 oz.
But I have the best luck with that blend at home.

Only thing about purchasing from there office is that it's only open
9-5 on weekdays. Closed on weekends.
They can tell you the closest local store that sell there coffee. All
there bags are dated so you know how old they are.

Its in Acton, ma and is run George Howell. Some of the best coffees
in the world.(kinda expensive though) Worth checking out though,
especially their open houses.
Also mail ordering from places is always an option too, or roasting
your own.

I made the pilgrimage there last week and picked up 8 pounds of green.
Although pricey, it was worth it - some of the best I've ever had!
The frustrating thing, however, is knowing that my home roast probably
doesn't come close to his roast. BTW, his roasted beans can be found
in some of the Whole Foods and other smaller kets - probably still
pretty fresh.
