this is my very first green unroasted purchase from Rhoads Roast family of beans, as I've always bought there already roasted in house variety of beans, and have been super happy and totally satisfied with the high fresh quality always, as well as the awesome customer service with care and professional ideas and suggestions that come with the Rhoads Roast purchase! Diane and the RR staff simply want to ensure that you the customer gets the best quality beans as well as having the best price point combined with super fast s/h to go along with excellent quality beans themselves. I have roasted my Peru beans to the start of the 2nd crack process, and the result was totally killer, with a nutty and earthy flavor that tastes totally different as I use several types of processing and brewing the beans, from the stainless steel pour over cone, to my french press and finally to my Bunn coffee machine that is my long garden work day choice. I have a tough time when it comes to selecting the location and origin of my next green bean purchase, but the Peru is excellent, super balanced tasted and delicious flavor, I use a small dash of half n half, and find that I'm always having another cup in the middle of a hot summer day, which is something that I never did until my finding of Rhoads Roast coffee experts. try RR and you will find out just what premium coffee bean experience is all about. My only suggestion to RR would be to consider offering 1/2lb bean options so a person like myself, living alone on a tiny $$ monthly budget, would be able to order 2-3 lbs in 1/2lb increments to be allowed to have a chance to try more varieties of beans and not end up with a full lb of beans that truly aren't your favorite taste or flavor, had to suggest this only because I"m alone and a lb of whole beans is a lot and costs are important too me with such little source of income.
