Personally I hate african coffee--the ones i've tried were always too bitter: tho I've never ordered them from a roaster.  If you're looking for a good coffee for espresso try Redbird Espresso Co--check them out online.  Jeff Pentel (the roaster) marks the date on each bag so you know it's fresh--it arrives within a few days so the coffee is at perfect drinkability: and it's extremely affordable considering if you buy a 5 pounder.  Plus he throws in chocolates.  Enjoy your set up while you can: as these guys have already pointed out you have some more purchases to make--and as you start pulling shots you will start buying things whether you intend to or not: it's a slippery slope my friend.  I too had never had an espresso: only the "espresso" offered by dunkin donuts or starbucks which tastes like sour compost juice.
