Please share the retailers/websites with which you've had the best experience.
I'm looking for pre-roasted. I live in the northern GTA and normally buy beans from the place in Kensington Market; however, I have a baby on the way and not sure how often I'll be able to make the trek downtown.
My main concerns are: freshness of bean/roast, reasonable shipping price to my office in midtown Toronto, price (in this order).

Matthew Taylor (formerly of Mercury) has started up Manual Labour Coffee and is doing home delivery of quality coffee. Detour and a different feature roaster each month. Currently starting off with Madcap ... http://www.manuallabourcoffee.com/index2.php#!/Coffee_Shop
I believe Roaste is now defunct, but I could be wrong. Check out GoCoffeeGo for a similar site with more high quality options (IMHO), great service, and quick shipping (but you have to contact them about shipping to Canada). Verve has free shipping and incredible options, but again, I'm not sure about shipping to Canada. A couple places to check out.
