  1. [UPDATE 11 March] I'm also keen to discuss selling the brand separately if anyone's interested. What I mean by brand is: - Brand story and strategy for growing - this is fairly personal, but can be tweaked towards the new owner, with which I can offer my help (I'm a professional graphic designer) - Design assets (logo, professional illustrations, colors, typefaces etc) - Custom packaging labels and instructions where and how to produce (suitable for the coffee bags I have in stock and part of the package above... part of the eco-friendly promise as a brand we use com
  2. Hi Graham, I need to make it as easy and quick as possible for myself hence the bulk offer, single transaction, less headache :)
  3. Hey everyone, Due to a growing family and moving abroad I have made a heart-breaking decision to sell my micro-roastery located in Park Royal industrial estate in London. I have been running it as a side hustle and hobby for a couple of years, selling online and to friends and family. We have designed a unique brand under which we have established a small group of online following and a few regular customers, but I wouldn’t call it a full on business. Therefore the sale is of equipment and space fit-out, not of a business. The roastery is located in beautiful Excelsior Studios - a ne
  4. Hello, I have recently made a move to mountainous countryside in southern Poland and I'm really enjoying the environment... but I do miss the coffee variety London had to offer. I have been using Proper Coffee from Bielsko-Biala, which are great so far, but just as I've explored coffees in the UK I am now keen on checking whats up in Central Europe Any recommendations?

    Hi all, I have just returned to the forum after some time and I'm glad to see it's keeping super active. I hope everybody's well and looking forward to read through.
  6. Hi there! I've been experimenting with super slow pouring over V60 recently and been wondering whether other people been trying something new with their pourovers like shaking the dripper throughout the process or stuff like that.
  7. Hello, I am a big Darjeeling tea enthusiast, but without much knowledge of what to look for in this type of tea. There are quite a few options to choose from, so I've been thinking what should I focus on ie. specific estates to get the best flavour?
  8. Hey I was just wondering if anyone tried turning home roasting into selling and had any luck with it?
  9. Is this still for sale?


  10. Hey all, Would anyone here be interested in a perfect condition Faema E61 Legend machine with digital group head thermometers (from Eric Svendson of Home Barista forums)? I bought the machine second hand, but almost unused and freshly serviced a few years ago, planning I'd open a coffee shop one day. This idea never came to fruition, so the machine was parked in my roastery ever since. I am setting up a pop-up/mobile coffee stand, so I'm looking into a single group Profitec 700 (less weight and less wattage than Faema), hence the need to sell. I am asking for £2000 or nearest o
  11. Ah yes, sorry Jon. No reply so far anyway Still interested though
  12. Hi there, PM me please if still available. I'm in West London, happy to collect, thanks!

    Hello hotmetal, glad to hear we share same addictions! Thanks for letting me know about DSOL and LSOL, never heard about it, sounds very interesting. I may take part as what I would like to develop most right now is my coffee palate, which is tricky as I tend to enjoy a lot of flavors in foods and find it super hard to distinguish peculiarities... but having a few good quality coffees per day must lead me somewhere! All the best with latte art, I can see you managed to build a pretty decent collection of tools as well! I've been reading some good recommendations of the Ceado E37S
  14. Hi All, I've been scratching my head about that for a while, Googling around but no answers yet. Looking to buy a Faema e61 Legend (2 group version) I've found majority of the machines with a standard e61 Legend badge/plate by the groupheads and with 5 yellow stars on the front, highlighted panel. A few of them however had a numbered plate (ie. e61 Legend no.0912) and word 'Legend' instead of the yellow stars on the panel. Does anybody know what the difference might be? Maybe produced in a particular country or for particular market? Or maybe produced after specific date etc. I can

    Hello everyone, I am a serious coffee addict with relatively new obsession with specialty coffee, espresso machines, technology and science behind coffee, reverse osmosis, micro roasting, farming and all the other things related to the coffee bean. I think I got totally hooked up on the subject since reading 'Coffee: A Comprehensive Guide to the Bean, the Beverage, and the Industry', which I totally recommend to all the newbies like me. Full time graphic designer on a journey to find new sense of life in micro coffee roasting This is my second post, the first one being 'Look
