  2. Coffee Beans
    Just been down to Kent to sell an air pistol and made a short weekend of it. We decided to have a wander down the road to Ramsgate from Broadstairs where the buyer happened to live. Beyond hope I was looking for a decent coffee place and noticed the shop front.. Had some really nice fish &...
  3. Coffee Beans
    After many disappointing light roasts from various roasters I tried a few bags from Cartwheel recently and am happy to say they're fantastic. Light roast, dark roast it doesn't really matter to anyone really just so long as the brews are tasty and these are. Had two small bags of single origins...

  5. Find a Coffeeshop
    I visited here yesterday as I'd heard that it was owned by Stewart's of trent bridge and I wanted to pick a bag of their coffee up so I thought I would kill to birds with one stone. It was a lovely coffee shop serving a fantastic coffee (I had a flat white) plenty of seating too. It's located...
  6. Coffee Beans
    Hi, Does anyone know if it's possible to buy Matthew Algie coffee from anywhere? I've been fortunate enough to have been given a couple of bags of a blend/roast I quite enjoy (Craft Little Number x). As far as I know officially you can't buy it as a domestic user from them, only wholesale...
  7. Coffee Beans
    The number of nearly finished bags seems to have been steadily growing on my desk. Largely thanks to the Brazen - 4 brews and I am left with about 25-30g from a 250g bag. I keep forgetting to take them home for weekend Aeropress so decided that I would try mixing a couple together. Currently...

    Has anybody any suggestion for what type of roast to use to get an espresso similar to the one found in the italian bars? Is it better a dark or a medium roast? I know Arabica tents to be the one used, sometimes mixed with Robusta, but the choice is so wide that I'm feeling a bit lost. What...
  9. Coffee Beans
    Have been working in Poppleton, York so emailed York Coffee Emporium which happens to be round the corner to see if they had any beans (you're supposed to order online then pick up from them or one of a few shops that sells them). Nice chap called Lurence said sure, we're busy but we'll have...

    I've been thinking lately: if I'm using a blend of 3 beans, and assuming the three types are equally represented in the overall roasting batch, what are the chances of getting two identical shots? Everything else being as equal as I can get it - temperature, grind, tamp pressure, shot time...
  11. Coffee Beans
    Lovely bright sunny day up here in the North-East, and I'm starting off with an espresso from Hasbean's 2010 Premium Blend. I roasted these on Thursday, going a little bit darker than I normally would, and it seems to have suited the blend well. A subtle sweetness to the aftertaste. What's...
  12. Coffee Beans
    I've just blogged about eightpointnine whose coffee I have been enjoying so much today that I'm already onto my third one. There are a number of companies entering the market and eightpointnine caught my eye, with their easy to use, intuitive site which takes the guesswork out of coffee...
  13. Coffee Lounge
    Ah the best thing about my week is when i get to abuse my machine at home as i only usually get to use it once after dinner on weeknights. So the Saturday morning 'wake up' coffee is key to the start to a great weekend. This morning i started my weekend with a double hit of Guatamala SHB...
  14. Coffee Beans
    Hi, Does anyone have tips for blends containing just a little robusta from any UK based roasters (who sell online, or are based in London)? I know about the HappyDonkey Classic Italian blend. To me, this has come to taste a little too harsh. Are there any others blends someone could point me to?
  15. Coffee Beans
    Hey everyone My flatmate was going near a drive through Starbucks (only 1 in Europe i think) so I hitched a lift as I wanted to try their Christmas blend as it was only £1 so I thought I would give it a go. The coffee had a lovely spice to it which was quite enjoyable but sadly there was a...

    Hi, Does anyone know of beans available in the uk that come close to Starbucks Komodo Dragon blend? I absolutely love that coffee but unfortunately its not available in the uk, everytime i go to the states i usually end up bringing about 10lb of it back It's a blend of Asia Pacific beans...
  17. Coffee Business Owner Support Forum
    As an indepenedent cafe owner you have probably been fortunate enough to develop / choose your blend, which is a luxury some cafe managers have not had. I recently visited a Costa Coffee in Manchester and was greeted by an enthusiastic barista who really took pride in his job. He made a decent...
  18. Find a Coffeeshop
    I am sitting in Blend in Wandsworth Common, in a familiar cafe with new owners. The current layout and ethos has not changed but this must be the 3rd or 4th lot of cafe owners in the past 2 years since we moved from the area. The cafe is accompanied by a great deli selection and a well stocked...

    I was fortunate to win a 6 month supply of coffee from CoffeeBeanShop.co.uk, run by RoasterDean, a member of the forum. You can enter this weekly competition here My package arrived on 07 October, having been roasted the day before. The beans were allowed to settle for a few days whilst I...
