Freshly roasted coffee beans in Northern Westchester/Putnam?

Does anyone know where you can buy decent fresh roasted beans around Katonah/Goldens Bridge/Purdys/Croton Falls/Somers/etc?

Thank you for any local insight out there.

    You will do MUCH MUCH better getting them in the mai from a place like GimmieCoffee. THey use way better beans than any local place does, and they send it within a week of roasting.

      You could go down to, say, Whole Foods in White Plains and maybe get coffee from Coffee Labs or their Allegro coffee, but in terms of freshness, it can be spotty.

      I, too, would welcome any insight into sources in the area, because in the absence of a credible source nearby, I too have been ordering online from Terroir. Now, a source like Terroir admittedly provides fresh coffees of the highest quality -- coffee roasted Monday morning arrives at your door on Tuesday in this area; still, a local source for freshly roasted high quality coffee would be appreciated.

      The Black Cow, on Maple Street in Croton (shopping center with Zeytinia and the Post Office) roasts all its beans on premises.

      www.blackcow.com

      They feature a few different roasts each day for drinking, but they have an array of more than a dozen different roasts available for sale.

          Susan Lawrence in Chappaqua is good, but pricey and also Turcos in Yorktown is good.
