Recommendations for beans?

After reading some questions and comments about big box/grocery stores selling stale beans, I was wondering if anyone has a recommendation for online vendors of beans, in 8 oz and 16 oz sizes. I like unflavoured dark roasted beans.

This place is local to me and I have yet to be disappointed by any of their coffee offerings:
Go to a store like Whole Foods or Sprouts that has the big barrels of beans with good turn over. I find that to be a whole lot cheaper and more convenient.
I've tried beans from all over and roast myself. I've found one place that is far and away better than any others that I have tried yet - Bean Traders in Durham, NC. They'll ship to you, and have a good variety of various types. I personally love their espresso blend, its the most balanced and rich I've found yet - but I'm an espresso guy so not sure exactly what you're looking for, but worth a check IMHO.

Hope you get to try some of David's coffee drinks, too - he's the most awesome barista I've seen in a long time. Tell him Jeff from Santa Cruz, CA sent you ;)
Will do!
