Does anyone have any recent experiences with purchasing greens from this store? The pricing looks good but I want to make sure the quality is good. I am just getting into roasting using a heat gun. Any other recommendations outside of Sweet Marias? Trying to get several different options.

I have some beans from them - Colombian, and an espresso blend. Both were OK, but coincided with my getting into roasting the US with a popper and then a Gene-Cafe, so I wouldn't want to comment to much on the quality.
I also currently have green beans from roastmasters.com - I like both their Firenze and Milano espresso blends, and their mocha. Not so sure about the SO I have from them - haven't roasted enough recently (been too hot in my apartment).

i've never ordered from dean, but i've seen a car with their bumper sticker on it, so they must be a legit company. you really can't go wrong with green beans from happy mug coffee (happymugcoffee.com) or if you're not as concerned about organic, try mr. green beans (diycoffeeroasting.com)
