Anybody know where I can buy in retail, such as Publix, Starbucks, etc.?  Barring retail, where can I order online?  Currently drinking Medaglia D'Oro ESPRESSO Italian Roast Ground Coffee.  Can grind in my Nutri-Bullet if beans is in the answer.

Thanks!

Please let us know how you are preparing your coffee. Is it pour over like Mellita, or an auto drip machine like a "Mr. Coffee" . Is it a stove top Coffee maker like a Bialetti moka pot?

That will start the ball rolling and kind of tell us where you are with your coffee habit.

Skylar, thanks for your reply.  I use a Mr. Coffee, which drips me two cups at a time.  We drink it with hot non-fat milk (about half a cup) but don't steam the milk.

OK.

No one else has had anything to say, apparently.

Your machine, coffee choice and proposed grinder would not be considered worth discussing here except to say that if you are enjoying the product produced, great. Please continue what you are doing and enjoy.

Your question however suggests a different entry into "quality" coffee which would include (and I salute you) regard for this planet we are stuck on.

I am unaware of the stance of the various brands sold by Publix. Certainly you can check with the ubiquitous Starbucks and I would presume they do indeed stock "green" coffees in the sense of respect for the earth.

You presumably may find among their multiple choices, something that you can feel good about.

As this is a site that is for folks who have taken a step toward coffee geekdom (fresh coffee, within 14 days of being roasted, properly ground in a suitable burr grinder, and prepared in a suitable machine or brewing device ) I am sure that the folks here will be all too happy to give you reams of advice.

Skylar, sounds as though the emphasis would be on the reaming.  It's funny, but when I had my consulting business, there weren't any dumb questions, just a determination of the sincerity with which they were asked.  Your second paragraph keeps me from saluting you back.  Barely, since I don't feel stuck here.  When my younger brother did something stupid, I didn't berate him; I attempted to explain why his actions would not be perceived in the vein in which he expected.  While I don't embrace that analogy personally, I would think that youse would understand from the perspective you present.  Our duty to the world we inhabit is to educate if appropriate, not segregate.

And, OK, I'll look elsewhere for enlightenment.  Adios.

All the enlightenment you need is right here, but nobody is going to just hand it to you. There are thousands of posts here, going back over years, discussing exactly what you're asking about. There are also tutorials and articlees on the root level of the website that offer very strong places to start. If you'd bothered to do a little research first, it wouldn't have taken much to discover that almost the exact questions you ask have already been answered several hundred times (if not several thousand).

My experience is that information that is handed to you is never as valued as the information you discover by doing the research yourself. I encourage that approach.

Also, when you had a consulting firm, doubtless people were paying you for your experiise and experience. If you expect information for free, you have to be willing to put up with a little grief to get it. Or, conversely, you could offer money to a coffee expert to show you the ropes. Most local roasters and third-wave coffee shops have classes available.

Personally I think you will be better able to pick up on the subtle nuances of Organic, non-cleared-rain forest coffee in a Technivorm Moccamaster rather than a 2 cup Mr. Coffee maker.  Choosing a better coffee maker would be a good step in the right direction of getting a better cup.
