The guy that roasts my coffee hands roasts every batch. He is a true craftsman. Excellent coffee.You are lucky. I can't say that I am a big coffee snob, but I am pretty picky, and my wife is worse. Especially when it comes to espresso. I would love to have a local roaster, but we have tried a number of espresso beans from local places and most of it has been pretty terrible. It took a while before we found beans that we liked. I have also pretty much given up on finding a good espresso at coffee shops.
I have have heard both good and bad about storing coffee in freezer. Now, most recently, there is some science that says that grinding frozen coffee makes the best coffee because of the mire uniform way in which the beans are crushed.
On a coffee related note, I have been using a Vietnamese phin to brew my normal coffee. It takes a while but IMO it makes a very flavorful cup of coffee.
