    I don't roast my coffee, but I do grind my own and bloom it prior to brewing.

    Fresh out of my stovetop popper. I'll let it rest until I grind on Saturday. Doesn't get any fresher, and I don't care if you are within walking distance of a place that roasts @richgem :p;)

    My local coffee shop roasts their own using a propane-fired forced air roaster. The advantage of this method is that there is no hot surface to burn the beans - they heat evenly as they circulate in the air. The downside is that it's very noisy, puts off a terrible stench, and can't be used indoors. They do make the best coffee I've ever tasted.
    They don't advertise beans for sale, but they've always sold them to me when I've asked. So, no, i don't roast my own because it wouldn't taste as good.
    Otherwise, Caribou Blend, in kcups, is outstandingly good and what I drink mostly.

    Sunday afternoon I roasted some Guatemalan Antigua for us and some Rwandan Maboro as a gift for some friends.
