Has anyone purchased roasted beans from Marlton Coffee (Marlton), Crescent Moon (Mulica Hill), or Revolution (Collingswood) roasters?  If so how are their roasts and are their roasts really oily?

Thanks.

I've been wondering about Marlton Coffee, I almost bought a belmor 300 from them with the 9 pounds of free beans. I'm curious about them....There are some great roasters in philly right across the bridge including Rival Bros, ReAnimator, Chestnut Hill, La Colombe. There is also Ultimo's and Elixar who carry Counter Culture and One Shot who carries Stumptown.

Usually Darker roasts seem to release more oils

I originally tried Talk N Coffee in Deptford, but the coffees seemed darker than they should - for instance I purchased Mexican Altura which was pretty much black and had an oil sheen.  Mexican coffee beans should be a brown color and should not be oily.  I also got some columbian decaf, which was even darker and very oily - Columbian should be a little dark, but this was very dark.  The taste of both coffees was not very good.  

A while back I tried Coffee Works in Voorhees, and the coffee was very good from there.  I tried the Mexican and Sumatra decaf.

A couple of days i purchased ETHIOPIA Yirgacheffe and decaf Brazil from Harvwest Coffee in Medford, and they are excellent.  The ETHIOPIA Yirgacheffe is the best coffee I have ever had.  I definately need to try more Ethiopian coffees :).

My next roaster to try is Revolution in Collingswood.  I have talked to them on the phone and they are very informative and friendly.  Unfortunately their store front for the time being is only open Saturday from 9 - 1, but they are working with the zoning board to try to get zoned for more hours.

In talking to Revolution and Harvest, I know Whole Foods is trying to work with them to get their beans in their stores.  I know Revolution is sold in multiple places, including Farm and Fisherman Tavern and Market in Cherry Hill.  I noticed that Whole Fields carries some of the beans from different Philly roasters and some of them are dated.

I will update once I try Revolution.

If anyone is interested, I tried the Kama Sumatra - Sumatra Wahana Natural and the Columbian Royal Select Decaf from Revolution Coffee Roasters in Collingswood NJ (revolutioncoffeeroasters.com), which were good bold coffees.
