Where to buy green coffee beans near NC ?

Hi guys. I see that many of us home-roast coffee; and that's something I'd love to get in to. I'm keeping an eye out at thrift stores for an air popper. In the meantime, I'd like to order green beans. Most places, like Maria's, are far away so shipping costs/times are higher. I've seen some places on the web in Texas and NewOrleans. Does anyone know where to order beans that's close to NC? Thanks for any advice.

Lets go for a ride over to the "I'll Drink to That" forum.

I ordered from Coffee Bean Corral, best beans out there, or so I'm told by Ferdelance, the Master Coffee Roaster.

What Tommy said! I get 90+% of my beans from Coffee Bean Corral. Their warehouse is in Mississippi, which isn't too far from NC. And in any case, you're still going to pay a hell of a lot less for green coffee - even including shipping - than you do for pre-roasted coffee. CBC's customer vervice is first-rate (as is Sweet Maria's ), and it usually takes my coffee about 3-4 days to get to me.

Welcome to the world of home-roasting! You're gonna love it!

Gotta sorta keep this at the top.
He's not a member of the room yet, so we need to make it easy for him to see it when Jon unlocks the door for him.

do not buy green beans from NOLA, although it is the largest coffee port in tne US, all the coffee is that comes through here is of commercial grade and some resturant grade, there is no gourmet shipped here, SF, gets the bulk of gourmet level coffee in green beans, when i was roasting for the company here we had our coffee trucked in from SF, sometimes, Tampa gets some, but you are better going with CBC or SM's they carry only Gourmet coffees, that i have found to be consistent always and always getting in some awesome lots, and that is CBC, yeah i still get my Cuban coffees from outside the US, but knowing that Russ(the Owner of CBC) has similar taste buds as i do, i trust what he gets to be great, not just good, and eventhough, you may see the same coffee ast another site, it could be from a differnt lot on the finca or from a lesser quality from the finca, each year you will find the coffee to be different from the previous years, due to weather, and other such things, so just because it is good this year and maybe midcrop, does not mean it will always be the same. thatis why you may find a great coffee one uear at a company and the next year it does not seem to be so good. Just an FYI
