I have not used them myself, nor do I know anyone who has but they don't seem to be much different than any one of a dozen other services that does this. You can contact the roasters yourself with a lot more choice but a little more work on your part, here is a place to start.
Me too, so far. Actually, the beans I've been buying for the past 6 months I've been picking up at the grocery store, but they are always within a couple days of roasting. I've mail ordered from Klatch and Redbird as well.
The only reason I mentioned that is because the vendor that calblacksmith mentioned doesn't seem to make any specific promises with regards to freshness.
