  1. Just a heads-up... The Oro blend from Lavazza is on offer in Tesco. I must say that among all the supermarket brands I have tried so far, this is the most superior one.

  6. Hi Everyone! I am new to CFUK and wanted to introduce myself. My wife and I got into coffee around the time we got married in 2010. Before that, I was not that much into tea or coffee. However, I did a small sample roast to try a wedding gift of drip coffee maker. I really enjoyed that coffee and we found ourselves with a small bean to cup DeLonghi. Mochas and lattes were good with it. I continued roasting coffee beans on Sundays and it became a 'thing'. A ritual. Since then I have gone from enjoying Americanos and Cappuccinos to becoming a macchiato and espresso fan. This trend can
