Green unroasted coffee basically stores indefinitely without even being stored in an oxygen free environment. We just keep it in the burlap sack that it come in, stored in a cool, dark, dry place. Roasting can be accomplished with a frying pan, a baker's whisk and a colander, and takes less than 15 minutes for 1/2 pound. Besides being about a third the price of store-bought beans, freshly roasted coffee tastes far better than anything from Starbucks, Peete's or Tim Horton's.

The Dean's Beans people are a bit cheaper per pound, but they do charge shipping (which can get expensive).
Coffee Bean Direct is free shipping on orders over 25lbs.
They are both great companies to deal with.
No offense Inor, but those dealers are basically $7.50 a pound which is retail rates at the box stores.
Understanding getting green beans is a "lets fill up a 5 gallon pail with coffee" maybe try these places that I have not used but found in about 2 minutes putting "distributor" in the search window:

Liquid bleach - the kind you buy at the store for doing laundry - is between 3 and 5% sodium hypochlorite and that is what you should use to purify and/or store water. Don't get the scented bleach or the color safe bleach and I stay away from the "brand names" and look at the percentage of sodium hypochlorite. I buy the 5% bleaches and use eight to ten drops per gallon of water.
Bleach is also good for treating cuts and scrapes that are not major, cleaning and disinfecting surfaces, needles, surgical tools and even your skin as long as it is used in the appropriate concentrations. Along with liquid dish soap (the kind you use when doing dishes by hand) tou can do any cleaning job you have - including bathing and washing your hair.
