Surprised they were not on there already, did Assembly not feature on LSOL a year or so back? If I am not mistaken it was a gud un/
Volcano is my go-to if I run out of beans too. Mainly because a decent coffee shop on the way home from work stocks them & I like the liquorice notes of their house offering.

Nice one:-) What's the coffee shop? 

I think the LSOL Coffee was the Santa Theresa Panama Natural .It was when we were roasting on Giesen's before moving to Loring actually.  Should probably do it over again soon or maybe a code for the community or something.at least.

Ahh yep  John With the KVW Mirage. Lovely spot! Send him our best from the roastery! You're quite close to our roastery then by the sounds of it. Drop me a message if you'd like to visit some time

now that you've brought it up, what was the reason for you to switch from Giesen to Loring? if I may ask

1. Emissions - effectively 0 emissions which is both a responsibility thing and  crucial for us given that we're roasting on what is basically a high street in Brixton. 

2. Versatility. We profile and source differently for Volcano and Assembly. Plus  we're a little more exploratory with Av which the Loring lends itself to. 

3. Shelf Life - in our experience Loring roasts hold up better over time. 

4. Efficiency - pound for pound they roast more coffee, more consistently and faster. 

We still have a Giesen sample (15kg and a 35kg Loring) which we love though 🙂

I think the UK Roasters list needs an overhaul and the criteria or adding new roasters need to be made clear in the initial post.

I'm too lazy to read through 21 pages but just in case nobody else has mentioned them I've had good experiences with Coffee Direct. They give a roasting date and it has always been very recent. (A day before despatch usually.) Smokey Joe is lovely if you like dark roasts. A good alternative to my usual Coffee Compass. One point to note, they sell in imperial measures so a big bag is 908g and so on.

Speak to Richard Jansz at coffee compass, you’ll be looking at between £11-£15 a kilo depending on quantity. For something cheaper Keith at treviso coffee has some decent blends.

Volcano Coffee Works is also worth considering or you could maybe see if there are any local Hertfordshire based roasters.

I don't know if Monmouth has been mentioned? I only drink decaf, but my son has been buying from them in Covent Garden and reports that they are super helpful and the coffee is absolutely top tier.

They’re pretty mysterious, no contact details on their website save for an email address, no physical address, and the ‘about’ page is about as meaningless as it could be.

If regular members copy me in with a recommendation for a [suitable] roaster I can add them to the list.
