had a go at updating this. there are more coffee related deals out there on hotukdeals, but the prices nothing that special or the kit is more entry level (nespresso) if people want to quote and

Hey guys took the chance to organise everything I could find on here into a table, hope I didn't miss anything   Type Deal Where Code

Got this though.

I've always wondered- Christmas blend... What's the deal with that? Ground Santa and reindeer droppings? Elf dust? (probably from my shelf!!)

Just a word of caution (or otherwise if that's your thing!).

 

Some of these beans, whilst not quite 'black' Friday, are pretty dark Friday.

 

like I said, no worries if you like it that way

Whuuuut? Now how am I supposed to do the koffie wechseln thing? Where there is choice, there is misery, I tell ya.

 

im going to freeze a couple of these, maybe. Then see who else offers a Black Friday offer.

Yeah, the Christmas blend is prob nice, but tbh I'm not really a monsoon fan, the finca la joyeria was good by itself, I think I'll prob give this one a miss, but some of their slightly darker roasted Africans are deffo going on the list for the next couple of months

Just out of interest, is freezing them for a month ok?

 

Yes - and longer is fine - seal the valve with tape and leave the tape on while they defrost at room temperature later down the line. There is a thread somewhere about grinding from frozen and the theory that it enhances taste. Never be caught out for beans ever again.

Grind particle uniformity... I'll give the tape trick a go.

Just ordered my little batch of darkness...

 

Now to work on my hobo beard before it arrives!

 

Enjoy:)

 

The Sweet Bourbon is okay in milk, but I had to brush my tongue after trying the H&V. It tastes marginally better than it smells, but that's about all I can say for it.

 

CC are a pleasure to buy from though.

I couldn't agree more; especially on the H&V. Odd considering they make a number of delicious blends, but I simpyl wouldn't partake in the offer because the H&V would go straight in the bin!!

I've tried H&V and although I didn't find it anything special I certainly didn't find it objectional and certainly didn't bin it.

Well the reviews on the H&V are pretty good, so obviously some like it.

 

Then there is this review:

Let's be quite clear about this. This coffee is not for everyone so if you are a third wave p*** who faps over apple and cinammon, leave now. This coffee is not for you. This is a coffee for men.

 

This coffee is not for people who worship at the altar of the Ginger God, those who arrange their sacred Red Bags in their Shrines to show their devotion to Coffees of Mediocre flavour.

 

Don't drink this coffee and expect to recognise any tastes on your poncy coffee 'flavour wheels'. This stuff transcends attempts at description. Why? Because it doesn't need to. It doesn't need to be described in terms of other things because it tastes of what it should taste of. ****ing coffee.

 

Drinking Compass Coffee Hill and Valley is like being kicked hard in the balls, but then being given an immediate soothing massage as you come to, after actually having drunk a coffee that tastes of something. There's something very dirty about this coffee, but in a good way. Like being snogged by your horny grandma after she's had her morning brandy and a couple of Bensons.

 

I'm too scared to try this as espresso. I'll wait until I've grown a beard. And not an effete Hipster chinny one but a proper tramp beard that is the outward manifestation of virility and a refusal to told what to do by people with annoying midlands accents.Try this coffee as a flat white. Its indescribably good. The closest thing that can get to it is sucking on a Hookah pipe with one corner of your mouth, whilst simultaneously using the remaining corner of your mouth to suck in the sweetest and most satisfying of Mummy's breast milk.

 

Try this if you dare, but if you are scared you might actually taste something, be warned and stay away.

 

You might recognise the writing style

 

Tastes of coffee Review by Spazbarista

Don't forget to use the Coffee Compass discount code so the price is actually £18 to us not £20.

It didn't even occur to me that it would be possible to!!!

 

 

I'd already decided I need to try H&V on the basis of SpazBarista's review.

Not sure if I was man enough or not, but it smelled like burning tyres and made my mouth sad.

 

As previously mentioned, CC are a really great roaster to chat to and will definitely find you something that you like.

 

Some people like the darker stuff
