Justin,
 
I bought beans from Churchill's for a while and that actually drove me
to buying bagged beans from Sam's; until, of course, I discovered SM's.
The roasts were inconsistent, often stale and, as you remarked, mostly
roast beyond identification.  Kaldi's is alright, but at this point I've
become pretty hard to please.

Larry, I think Crooked Tree would be easy for me to try since I will be
staying in St. Charles anyway, I'll drop by some morning just for grins
(well, hopefully I'll be grinning). 
I have heard mixed reviews from friends about Kaldi's in Springfield.
The most knowledgeable of them said it is inconsistent at best, but when
the choice is that or charbucks, I think it is worth a try. 
I have heard of a roaster in Springfield called Churchill's coffee. I
know from seeing the beans my friend bought there, that they burn the
crap out of most of their beans, but they do offer some lighter roasts
(light for them though is probably FC+). Anyway, I think they have a
couple coffee houses there. I might check them out. Springfield is an
easy drive from here. I might regret it, but at least I would be able to
speak from experience.

I think Churchill's was okay for brewed coffee at some point in the 
past.. I remember having a nice cup of Yirg there a long, long time 
ago.  Of course, that was pre-homeroast, so I was a lot less picky at 
that time.  I sure didn't like the idea of roasted beans getting all 
stale in those open bags they used in the old store (the one with the 
giant fork in the yard).  Anyway, that's been a long time.  Broadway in 
KC is good, and any of the places mentioned in the St. Louis area are 
probably good.  If you're ever in Jeff City, I'll throw some homeroast 
your way.
