Here's a recent interview with the Owner of Modern Standard coffee: http://londonsbestcoffee.com/news/coffee-and-interview-with-modern-standard-s-lynsey-harley Whilst I'm not particularly interested in a roaster positioning itself somewhere between commercial and specialty I did think it was interesting they are retailing through Sainsbury's, it's surely a better alternative than the other coffee available in Supermarkets (except maybe those stocking Union) if you need some emergency beans.
The Bella Barista beans that came with my machine are very good for a drink with milk in, but both of us here at Biggles Towers found it to be a bit explosive when used purely for espresso. Even when thinned down to Americano..... >So I was quite pleasantly surprised to find that Sainsbury's are doing some nice single origin coffees now, among a range of very selective small roasteries. I got this one (pic) to try out. £4.50, 227gms. A nice description, but I particularly liked that the roasting date was shown. It's a nice drink too. Not as big a hitter as the sledgehammer BB beans, but makes a nice, smooth silky cappuccino with a good taste profile that lingers in the mouth. As an espresso it's even better. Worth checking out in case of emergency needs for supplies! ? I also notice that I am drinking less coffee now. I was always throwing a bean to cup coffee down my neck, several every day; but I find that a really decent coffee satisfies me so much more, and lingers so much longer, that just 2 shots a day is keeping me happy. Quality vs quantity I guess.
