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.
