BTW, I HIGHLY recommend you read the manual thoroughly. It will help a lot. Also, Joe updates the website occasionally with tidbits and suggestions.
Make sure you perform the easy cleaning regimen faithfully, and you'll get a LONG life with it.
I'm getting near 500 hundred roasts on one of mine.

SM's are way above reputable, so I'd just write them a letter, or even an email will do.
Neither Tom nor Maria pack bags, that's done by workers.

I can assure you, at least from MY experience that this was not deliberate.
You can order from them with confidence.
Same with dozens of other guys we all purchase from.

Given the amount of coffee that goes in and out of SMs warehouse everyday, I'm fairly certain that they don't sample everything they sell. But if bacteria gets into the fermenting/processing of the green bean, there is absolutely no way to correct it, and someone would have known about it down the line. As you said, they will certainly replace whatever was bad.

If it tastes no good, meaning there is something wrong happen. Not to confuse, be sure to buy the good green coffee beans. Here are some tips to avoid this problem. The green beans should be of nearly equal size, similar in shaped, and have similar color.

If the appearance of the beans is yellowish to brown, often with mottled surface, the cause is due to over fermentation. The odor is somewhat repellent, rotten, and rancid. Thus, you should change your coffee beans because it is bad. Be sure to get a reliable source in order not to make your coffee taste bad again.

 
Did you know...? Dark roast coffees actually have less caffeine than lighter roasts due to the fact that the process of roasting burns off caffeine.

I've bought hundreds of pounds of beans from Sweet Maria's and haven't got any bad ones.  You should let them know.  Tom only buys good beans.  A lot can change, however, between when he cups something and when the shipment arrives at SM's.

As long as you don't grossly over or under roast your beans, it's pretty hard to screw up with a Behmor.  What you described sounds like damaged beans.  You may see aged or monsooned beans that are yellow but those aren't really common.

Raw coffee beans has a bright green, this does not necessarily mean it has a good taste, but it can be proved to be a fresh agricultural product. In addition to the original flavor, but also should pay attention to may pick up other peculiar smell (e.g., fermentation, mildewy, ingredients, earthy taste, etc.).
