Where can I buy Kona coffee beans in VA?

I live in Loudoun County (near South Riding/Aldie) and would love to surprise my hubby for Valentine's day with some great Kona coffee beans. Any place I should check for these? We're fond of Jamie's General Bean in Centreville but she has them so irregularly I can't be certain they'll be there in the next week.

Thanks!

    I've seen them regularly at Whole Foods, although I must admit it's been a while since I looked, but you might want to give them a call.

    Oddly enough, I've always gotten mine at BJ's. Great prices there, but, again, it's been a while.

      They are still at whole foods- both at the Reston and Clarendon locations- about $22 a lb.

        Trader Joe's has them as well.

          I hope this isn't off topic, but I haven't found a local supply - over the years I've tried Trader Joe's, Gloria Jeans, Barneys, Dean and Deluca, maybe a few others - that can compare with the single-estate coffees from Pele Plantations, online: http://www.peleplantations.com/
