Current Favorite (of the month)

Terroir's South Italian Roast Style Espresso - A bit darker, sweeter, and nuttier than the Northern. Plus it's easier to pull at home.

Stumptown's Natural Sidamo - Incredible as a SO shot, even more incredible as a cappa (need to pull at slighly lower temp to really bring out the strawberry).

Vivace Dolce (Vita also has an excellent rep...I've had it in a cappa but never as a straight shot)

Espresso Classico and Nuevo from Paradise Roasters

Also, Jon, have you ever tried Kid-O? I really like it.

Kudos also to Metropolis Redline and Fresco Ambrosia. Spice Island from Metropolis is great in milk drinks, too! (or as a straight shot)

My all time favorite is Nizza from La Colombe. It is freshly roasted and excellent.

One of the ones I've tried recently that I really enjoyed was Doma Coffee Ruby's Organic Espresso Blend.  It was especially good as a cappa or a macchiato, since the milk cuts it just nicely... balancing out the flavours a little.

Question:  how do any of you deal with trying a variety of coffees from various places and using them up in appropriate timeframes?  As in, it's just ME, and I can't drink enough lattes to go through more than 1/2 pound of coffee beans in a week, but I don't want beans to get old before I get to them.  Any suggestions?  It seems that freezing beans is much frowned upon.  I DO  have Flying Goat coffee close by, but I'd very much like to try some of the espresso blends that have been mentioned in this thread.
