So I notice there is a espresso blend section, why not a coffee section?

Anyhow, I've been drinking a lot of pour over lately and I have been getting my coffee from Barismo and Terroir.

Any other coffees out there worth mentioning?

i've had excellent, good and just ok coffees from most all the specialty roasters i've tried.  

as for roasted beans, the last few that i've had from intelligentsia, handsome, portola, ritual, blue bottle and some other have all been pretty good.  
for greens, if you want to home roast, ive been primarily getting them from klatch, sweet marias and roastmasters.

maybe go for a type or origin that you've liked or want to try and give them a try.    

there are a ton of specialty roasters out there to choose from.  this list is for espresso roasters but they should know what they're doing with regular drip coffees too.   Click Here (www.home-barista.com)

The high end stuff is getting high end.
I was in Klatch the other day and they had one you could buy as a pour over for 10$! a cup.

I have found that in most areas I go to, quality is looking up. I don't roast my own and I prefer coffee to espresso 90% of the time.

Barefoot does good. We have a old/new place locally that is doing great and saves me shipping quite a bit.

I had fun and could afford a short subscription to Citizen Bean and got to try places I had never knew existed. It's expensive but you get a full pound a month from a 3rd wave roaster along with some kitchie stuff.

Good luck on your search.

 
The world needs more outstanding coffee.

In Mass, if you're around Boston, you can find Stumptown beans at Thinking Cup, Counter Culture beans at Espresso Royale, Pavement, and Render, and Pavement usually has guest beans from folks like Ritual. Plenty of options to test out the bigger names in specialty coffee in the city.
