    Rave have never really done it for me, but their prices are competitive and lots of others on this forum seem to like them.

    H R Higgins have a good range spanning old fashioned, very dark roasted blends, all the way to third wave style single estates and all points inbetween. They're based in Mayfair though so can't come close to beating others on price.

    What method is it for? I've never had a Kenyan that is overly sweet as pour over (sweeping generalisation) but they tend not to be great as espresso.

    I use Rave signature as a bit of a reference point when using a new machine, so I know what im heading for with adjusting the machine, its a very consistent blend that they use in their own cafe, their single origin are always pretty good but I move on from them to other roasters.

    I have got some of the Nicaragua / Buenos Aires currently and they are fantastic. Got them knock down price from the warehouse sale.
