What rudeness. Will you all just stop it.   This is What Did The Postie Bring You - he brought beans, in bags. The place to discuss the contents is either under the roasters own thread if they ha

A letter to say I don't have prostate cancer. Priceless.

A Small Batch ... Been interested in trying some Zambian coffee having traveled there some 20+ year's ago. MrsMaB was teaching then and it was part of a school exchange, in its infancy then but still going strong. I went along for a jolly not realising the profound effect it would have on my outlook to life.

That must be a record Norvin! Maybe that's why they call it AerSpeed? It was a grind waiting for my AerGrind, although to be fair I knew that cos I backed it on KickStarter before he was even in production.

I must admit that after reading some posts about about their service on this site, I ordered with some trepidation. I really can't fault their service or product.

Really pleased. Good ole Knock. Nice Knock. I am now a fan. Now Knockin' on heaven's door. My favourite shop is now the Knockin shop.

yeah I'm also very pleased with my aergrind. Love how it fits inside the Aeropress too.

I did have a precision tamper from Peter as well, which was good but also took a while to arrive. I sold that when I treated myself to a Goldfinger.

Pulled the trigger on a bag of these thanks to the discount from Django.

I don't need any more beans, but couldn't resist an interesting one 😊

Never had a bad bag from Django, hope they taste as good as they sound!

I was interested in this so I gave it a quick google, wow... super expensive beans! Are they as impressive as the price tag?  

Tbh no. I have tried tastier Geshas. I have a Slurp rare subscription all roasted by Alexander Ruas. He roast a lot of competition coffees.

Really nice beans.

Biggest problem is that when you have beans on this price range it hurts to dial in. 😂

And you only got 100 grams to play with.

Any beans in particular that you'd recommend trying? Don't think I can comprehend £15/100g though😅

By postie... I drove to the outskirts of York... La Pavoni Europiccola. It's only been what 3 years I've been countering about buying one! Now to get all the bits I need!

UK roasters is a dark spot for me I started trying some and decided to wait until the Brexit and see how things will be sorted out.

My favourite roasters in Europe are The Barn, La Cabra and Gardelli. Check out their websites.

I will be doing more testing next year.

I got a bigger batch coming from Euphoria coffee Johannesburg. Warren is new on international shipping and the shipping price is higher. It will go down when he gets the international orders up. No website at the moment 

ONA which like a lot has made some smart moves during the pandemic and lowered their international shipping. Au$ is low at the moment and that gives advantage for us in Europe.

I made a test order for only one bag to see how the shipping from Australia works and it took 7 days with DHL.

Best Gesha I have tried comes from ONA.
