New to the UK and need to get acquainted with bean sources.

Recommended Posts

 I'm from Northern California and am now getting settled in Somerset outside of Frome and love it. We just received our pallet of belongings which includes my La Pavoni and Huky roaster. Just pulled the first espresso and while drinkable it needs to be dialed in. I haven't set up my Huky yet as I think there'll be some sourcing issues like exhaust tubing, propane tank connections and, the big thing, green bean sources. I bought a few bags of roasted beans from a small local roaster and am thinking about trying out Foundry Coffee Roasters. Lots to do and learn.

Hey thusband sounds great, I enjoyed my time in San Francisco a few years back. Saint Frank was super good! We have a great Kenyan PB at the roastery currently if you like fruity/complex coffee. How is it roasting on the Huky? I have a Gene Cafe that needs fixing currently. best, m

Yeah we'll miss lots of things from California but not the excessive heat in the summer, wildfires, floods in the winter and national politics.

I love my Huky and will set it up in the garage. I have a laptop running Artisan to track the roasts which have never been bad. I can't wait to get it going. Where do you get your coffee, roasted or green? Thanks for the welcome.

Welcome to the UK. A couple of nice coffee shops to be had in Frome, notably Frama.

Thanks, haven't been to Frama although we're up and down Cheap Street many times. We'll check it out. We've been going to River House.

Do you ever buy green beans here in the UK?

I'm afraid I don't buy green beans. I'm sure there are plenty of recommendations in the Home Roasting and Beans subforums that can be found on the main forums page. 
I've enjoyed the breakfast options at the River House when I've visited friends in Frome, but I think there are better coffee options. I've heard Moo and Two is good too.
