I am of coarse reading these replies. I feel like I have learned quite a bit from this community. I have found out that a good friend of mine roasts his own coffee and he is willing to share his beans with me. I also looked at some local grocery stores and found (like mentioned above) Whole Foods labels their bins with the roast date and some locations have a small roaster next to the beans (http://www.javamasters.com) so I am hoping that one comes into my local location. All of these cheaper options do not taste as good as the professional roasters that charge $17 for 12oz but they are still better than stale. In the last month I have been trying a lot of things and I can really see that stale beans are not the best (but work ok for Toddy). Eventually I will refine my methods but until then it is quite an adventure.

plenty of roasters sell 1lb bags for generally cheaper the roasters selling 12oz bags. Whole Foods roasted beans aren't very good, one by me roast. I never buy 12oz bags anymore.
