  • Reviews to help me choose which Brown beans?

    Hi - Im  new here and came with the aim to purchase beans from the store however I must be doing something wrong as I cannot find any reviews or discussions to help me determine which beans to buy - could someone please point me in the right direction? Just looking for brown beans, not green. Thanks!

      go into the product descriptions and youll find a succinct and informative description of style, flavour, body etc; have a browse and give something ago that appeals, any of them will be good, it is CoffeeSnobs after-all.

      if they dont hit the money (id be surprised) try something else! read the descriptions while drinking the coffee and youll get a feeling for what the words are trying to express. then you can base your further purchases on better understanding of the descriptors.

      if you just cant decide, a roasted sample pack is fun so you can try a few origins, even try your hand at blending...

      if you like espresso, wow is pretty good  

      be sure to grind fresh with a good grinder to get best results

        fair enough, guess I just expected reviews. I was introduced to this site by one of the moderators I bumped into in her cafe when travelling and ended uptaking home a bag of WOW as a gift so I have just finished that. We have a Delonghi PrimaDonna Avant, its about our 3rd fully automated machine and about our 5th coffee machine having worked our way through various ones. Ive tried so many different beans, and as I prefer a short espresso the taste is important to me but so is $$ as we provide the machine and coffee to our staff in our office also so we go through about 40 cups a day (kept the wow to ourselves though) and gave the staff the Lavazza from the supermarket!! Just out to experiment on taste/value for money

              At your 40 a day your up round 2-3kg a week or a bit better so most roasters will happily supply you at that rate and dont inflict stale stoupor market beans on your staff

              As well as buying WOW which will suit espresso or long blacks really well there are some other sponsors of this site who are roasters too (have a look at the list on the left). Have a try of 3 or 4 different lots over the next month and see what your staff think they like the best.

              Lots to choose from and at say 3kg/week you should be buying better for the same price or less than supermarket junk

                Hey there eocom...how did you enjoy the Wow?

                Also, if you go up to the cupping room, youll find some discussion on various beans which may help to give you some more idea on what to choose.

                      I highly recommend the Roasted Sample Pack.  Its very good value at $30 and gives you the opportunity to try 4 different single origins or blends.  Theyre always freshly roasted. As someone mentioned below, you can also try blending, which can have some interesting results.

                      All the best
