    Last Saturday over 30 Coffee Forums UK members visited Bella Barista for an assault on the senses and the chance to get hands on with high-end coffee machines of both pump and lever varieties. Machines on their own are nice to look at but you need beans to really let them shine. 4 UK coffee...

    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...

    This week I had the pleasure of being one of the first people in the world to see and touch the LONDINIUM I spring lever espresso machine. Taking a trip to Londinium Espresso's roastery with camera in hand I wasn't sure what to expect. I had been following the Londinium Espresso Blog with...

    What are you all planning on starting 2012 with? Mine is going to be the El Salvador Finca San Jose Red Bourbon, it is my favourite bean so seems right to start the new year with it

    Hey everyone, I'm new here I'm a 5th year medical student in London, I work long shifts and spend a fortune on decent coffee. I've been reading all the very informative posts on this forum, and it seems that the process of making good coffee at home is more complex than I imagined. And more...

    For anyone who's seen my other thread on what grinder to get, you will know come Dec 25th I will be the proud owner of a shiny new grinder of some shape or description (Still undecided, lol!) Anyway, I've discovered my wife has already purchased me some beans to go with it. I saw a tin of Illy...

    It's not often that you hear of a 100% Robusta Single Origin being fit to drink as an espresso. Robusta (Coffea canephora) beans are usually added to Arabica (Coffea arabica) beans to form a blend, raising the caffeine content and in some cases keeping the price of the blend low (as Robusta...

  16. Introductions
    Hi, just joined the forum. I'm new to brewing "proper" coffee but have been doing some research over the last few days. I have ordered an MC2 auto grinder. I'm looking for a nearly new Gaggia classic from ebay to start with. I would love a Rancilio Silvia but £300 is my limit for a machine-...

    I'd just like to introduce myself as is customary... I'm 29, married and always loved my coffee and been labelled a snob by many of my friends and family! Have been using a french press for many years before finally shelling out for an espresso machine and grinder. I use both and now it's...

    I've been fortunate to play with this coffee on both a commercial machine and through 2 different types of home espresso machines and have managed to achieve similar results each time. A whiff of almonds on the nose and touch of caramel as the shot makes its way across the tongue - think nutty...

    From recommendations on this site and Home Barista amongst others I got interested in Londinium Espresso for their beans and also because I found out that Reiss ("Mr Londinium") is a lever machine fan and - no less important - has now become the UK distributor for Olympia Cremina lever machines...

    Does anyone know of a roaster anywhere in the West Midlands? Or failing that someone who'll supply mail order 1kg of beans without charging an arm and a leg?
