You *have* to find a place somewhere in your area that roasts their
own. They may or may not have coffee as good as Sweet Marias but
they *will* have green coffee you can get from them. Yeah, it'll
probably cost more / pound, odds are strong it won't be as good as
what Tom offers, but it'll get you by *much* better than the horrible
stuff you resorted to.
Kansas City is big enough I know of four or five without even
searching, a couple of which have pretty good coffee. Heck, we even
have a local coffee company (NOT the Folgers plant I worked across
the street from for over a decade) that produces pretty good coffee -
it's at least not stale and sometimes not even over-roasted.
Not that I have to resort to them - even if funds are a bit tight, my
next order from SM arrives on Monday. Some things you have to plan ahead for.
Glad to hear you're almost out of the bad times.
