  1. All, I've noticed a resurgence in popularity on the forums for James Gourmet recently, so I thought they would be a good choice for the final LSOL of the current run. We are lucky enough to be getting an LSOL exclusive bean, weeks ahead of it's public release. It has been recommended by Peter James himself and is expected to work well as both filter and espresso. Guests are 500g @ £13, add your names below: 1. fluffles
  2. May's installment of the DSOL brings you a bespoke roast by Peter James of James Gourmet. This is the first time I have organised a roast with Peter but believe some of the original members of DSOL have had the pleasure before. This will however, be a different roast from before. Highly regarded and one of the roasters for Colonna & Small's, James Gourmet hail from Ross-on-Wye in Herefordshire and were established in 1999. Get your taste buds ready...
  3. I've become a bit set in my ways with my coffee use. So I would like some advice. Currently I use James Gourmet, Monmouth, Hasbean and sometimes Square Mile. I've also taken out subscriptions with blankbox and pact blankbox in a hope that they can get me started with new roasters. I have also used Union, Extract, Pumphreys, Ousburn Coffee Company, Grumpy Mule. I am aware I need to give Rave a shot and Londinium. Who else?
  4. Evening all, I have two 250g bags of this taking up space in my freezer that I'd really like to swap for some other coffee Its was frozen on same day of receipt so long before it had de-gassed so will still need a few days rest before ready to use. I'd like to swap for something like java jampit or any other single estate or even a blend as long as its something with low acidity and rich dark flavours. Suggestions welcome If anyone has a bag of londinium Bolivia, Marcelino Katari i'll swap both bags for one of that
  5. Due to my ever increasing stockpile of beans I've got a 250g bag of last months DSOL James Gourmet beans going spare if anyone wants them. (I'll post them free as I'm feeling unusually generous!?) Let me know if your interested - if I get more than 1 reply by 7pm Sunday then I'll ask my 4 year old daughter to choose the name she likes most.
  6. Hi everyone, this is my first post on here and may appear a little strange on a forum for coffee lovers. Please be gentle with me.... I've owned a Gaggia Classic for about a year and love the coffee that it produces. My wife thought it would be a white elephant. She said that she would never drink coffee from it because the high street stuff would be far superior. She tried it once and is almost as hooked as I am. Our choice of coffee has always been illy ground espresso. We haven't seen a need to try anything else on account of the fact that we like it. Anyway, for Christmas, and having seen what we have, my sister in law bought be a bag of coffee beans. Clearly, she didn't appreciate that I don't have a grinder. I could plant those beans and see if a bean stalk grows or I could do nothing with them or I could buy a grinder.... So, I started looking and quickly realised that anything less than a burr grinder wasn't going to be any good for espresso. Even with that in mind, I would be looking at a cost of between 100 and 150 pounds for something of a reasonable baseline - Iberital MC2 or similar. My (our) coffee habits are typically a double shot each per day - seldom espresso alone and often turned into a cappuccino for each of us. The taste is far nicer than the high street and, having practised a lot, I think I can do them pretty well, even on a Gaggia with a single boiler. So, do you think that there is a world out there which will justify the outlay of a decent enough grinder? I have to be sensitive to price within reason and it would be nice to think that, over a time, I may recover some of my outlay through cheaper but as good or better quality coffee than illy ground. How does illy ground compare with beans bought from the places that you normally frequent? At the rate that we get through coffee, will the beans loose their freshness unless I buy very small quantities at a time and pretend not to notice the cost of postage? Any other thoughts, suggestions, pointers, etc. would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Ian

    Decaf beans

    Have been using decaf beans from one of the favoured suppliers of this forum and the results are very iffy. Not sure if it's my technique (or lack of), but I've seen other threads where users have not talked kindly about decaf. What are the main issues with decaf?
  8. Just like the title says, do any of you know of any similar type beans from James Gormet that are not acidic and quite fruity but also forgiving? Is Fazenda Samambaia any good?
