  1. A great little roastery in Shrewsbury, Shropshire - Iron & Fire Coffee Roastery I went to a coffee tasting evening when we were camping in Shropshire (I'm not from Shropshire myself) but it was great! It was only meant to be a little holiday activity but it's what lead me to get into coffee a bit more and join on here! I don't know all the technical terms yet, but I know good coffee when I taste it!
  2. Hi all, so a little background to me joining here and apologies for such a long post - feel free to ignore it. I've lurked for a few months now and finally felt it was time to pull the trigger and join. I've been a long time (good) coffee lover and it seems each day I get taken further down the rabbit hole and now it's snowballing! There's so much to learn and its really got me excited. The more I read and learn the more I realise how little I know! I recently did a home barista course at Extract Coffee in Bristol which I would absolutely recommend if you're pretty new to all this - thou
  3. Okes folks. ..., on with my journey of stepping out of the box. A bit. Over time. When I started home roasting some years ago, it didn't even feel like it was such an infectious thing. Obviously, I began for a reason, namely for the sake of decent espresso. Intrigued by all the different taste notes there were to discover, I dug deeper and deeper into the topic - reading, roasting, talking to roasters, buying greens from around the world, reading cupping notes where available, helping out in cupping sessions of Quality Management and Product Development at a coffee company
  4. Girlfriend is headed over to New York at the end of the week for a fortnight and has offered to bring back a few things from the US with her - anyone have any roasters they'd recommend? She'd be happy to pick up anything in NY but can get something delivered from anywhere in the US in that time so despite a very poor knowledge of roasters over there I'm still taken a back by choice! I'm generally a fan of fruity, light roasts but am open to anything to be honest - mainly drinking espresso at the moment but regularly brew as well. Also if there's any coffee gear over there that's n
  5. Hi All I was wondering if anyone has coffee pouches (with valves) that I could possibly buy off you. I dont carry a large supply myself and was due to order some real soon, but with lockdown I cant seem to get any from my usual supplier. At the same time online orders are rolling in ... Any help would be appreciated. Not looking for huge quantities, probably 50 bags would be sufficient at the moment. Oh - and as for size ... 250gm. Thansk in advance
  6. Hey all! So...Finally making the jump and we receive our 5kg roaster mid September, In the meantime I'm getting all surrounding equipment in place and I've hit a wall with something. The plan is to open a coffee Shop separately in 12-18 months time, but we want an espresso machine to keep at the Roastery for our own drinks, letting clients taste our coffee at the roastery etc, Can't have a roastary without an espresso machine! So here's the thing, we have in our Budget enough to purchase a La Marzocco Linea mini - but before I pull the trigger on that, I wanted to
  7. HI My namie is Dominik and I would like to start my small coffee roasting business in the UK. I have got my 1kg machine and i want to buy some coffee beans now . My question is where can I buy good qualiyty beans .Should I buy this from local importers or directly from farmers. Thanks for any help.
  8. After some sound advice from forum members and from Marko at Bella Barista, I picked up what I hope will be my last big coffee purchase yesterday. Paired with the EK I picked up from @EricC a few weeks ago, I'm hoping this combo will last me a very long time. Technically it's not quite my first setup, but it's the first "proper" espresso setup I've owned, which definitely qualifies as jumping in at the deep end I think. The whole buying experience from BB was great, Marko threw in a whole bunch of extras above and beyond the bundle they already offer with new machines, including a k
  9. Does anyone know of a good place to buy good quality coffee beans in Geneva please? I will be staying there for a few days next week (at the Palpexpo conference centre)& would be interested in sampling a local roastery if one is recommended. Also, any recommendations for nice cafes? thanks very much!
  10. I've recently been to New York City where I found the "third-wave" coffee shop espresso blends were more chocolate & nuts than the fruits & florals I find in London shops. I brought back a bag of Joe Waverly blend http://joecoffeeshop.myshopify.com/collections/coffee/products/the-waverly-joe-espresso but now that's gone I'm wondering if I can find a similar blend from a UK roaster. Suggestions would be appreciated. Matt
  11. If you'd be traveling tonight and wanna bring some fresh local beans on a budget to a friend that really likes espressos and ristrettos which roaster would you recommend? I know there are tons of threads on the topic, but wanna read some updated and variated feedback ...
  12. On a short visit to Berlin with my wife we stayed at a hotel on Uhlandstrasse and quite by chance walked past this coffeeshop and roastery. My wife is on a low-caffeine regime for medical reasons (I know, I know... I'll miss her) so I only managed one quick visit before we left. It's a very multi-talented cafe - they roast their own beans on site so you have the option of buying something you like the taste of. There's an extensive menu of nearly 40 coffess with single origin and various blends. They also do a wide range of tea and other drinks as well, plus chocolates and cakes (Oma
  13. Used Bunn grinder for sale, reliable and efficient. Does 250gr in about 12 seconds on filter setting. Suit micro roaster for pre ground orders. £150
  14. Popped into Edgecumbes new roastary open day on the way to a party. A gleaming new Giesen roaster. An interesting addition to the West Sussex coffee scene although they have been at it for many years. This was an open day to celebrate the new premises and well organised. A good selection of coffees, teas and equipment. The technique could use a bit of work but the flat whites we had were better than OK.
  15. A friend who works in Birmingham has just suggested I might enjoy a trip to Quarter Horse Coffee next time I'm in Brum. Looks good, and it looks like they're also planning to start roasting in Birmingham in March, which is quite exciting.
  16. The team at Extract Coffee Roasters have offered up a raffle prize of a barista training / roasting day (at their roastery in Bristol) for one lucky forum member and a partner (or +1) with all proceeds going to the forum. Entry is £2 per ticket - limited to 50 tickets There is also a chance to win a bag of beans from Extract. A second chance draw will take place and the winner will receive a 250g bag of beans of their choice from the Extract Coffee Roasters webshop (http://shop.extractcoffee.co.uk/) The draw will take place once the 50 tickets have been fully sold.
  17. Apologies if this has been asked a million times before. Going to take my love of coffee up a notch from my trusty moka pot to a Gaggia Classic and burr grinder. I currently get Italian roast from Cardews in Oxford and have signed up for an introductory offer with Pact coffee. I like a bitter taste with chocolate and nut notes, but would definitely like to expand my tastes to something different. Any recommendations for for beans and/or where to buy from?
  18. We are a new cafe/roastery outside Vancouver. We are excited about joining this online community. More...
  19. Hello, I've been in and out of the forum for the past year, and pursuing better espresso the entire time. As the one year mark is approaching, I'm extracting espresso far superior to that of any high street chain (he says) and I'm now taking the financial plunge into rounding off the experience with a IberItal MC2. The question is...Is it worth looking into coffee bean subscriptions or are these a way of roasterys shifting slow moving beans (maybe I'm a great big sceptic) Has anyone had experience with sub's in the past. My gf does work a few seconds walk from the Nude
  20. Merdeka Coffee began small in Indonesia and are now doing the same (beginning small!) in Auckland , NZ. While licensed to provide a range of food, the roastery is initially focusing on doing what is its core business- roasting Indonesian coffee for wholesale and retail demand- whilst also supplying the standard Flatwhites, shortblacks and Cap's over the counter through one of the Wega or Astoria machines on display.

  21. Like the circus that never leaves town, 2% Jazz is coffee mayhem throughout the week and entices a weekend visit by offering FREE espresso shots on the weekends. The 2% Roastery location is confidential. And if I said Langford you wouldn't dare think about going anyways. More...
  22. When I know I'm going somewhere I always do a little coffee shop research before arrival. My girlfriend thinks I'm an anal nerd but hey, I love good coffee and I want to be able to enjoy good coffee wherever I am. Come to think of it, I never see her complaining when she's sipping back a tasty long black! Anyway, we were in London last weekend and travelled into Euston so I knew I wanted to go somewhere nice around that area. We wanted some decent food to complement our coffee too so opted for Caravan Restaurant and Coffee Roasters which is just behind Kings Cross/St Pancras stations in
