  • Grinders premium coffee.. Does anyone actually like it?

    Hi all,

    Due to work, I have large discounts on grinders and I need to know if its worth getting - even if only for backup.

    So, anyone who actually likes it and why?

    If not, why not?

    Why not give it a try to see if YOU like it... your tatse is likely different to others tastes

      It doesnt really matter what others think; if you like it and the price is right, then go for it. But I would also be considering roast date, the minimum quantity you would need to buy and whether you could consume all that in a period of 4 weeks or less.

      In my pre-Snob days, I tried Grinders several times at one Melbourne cafe and it was usually quiet nice. I tried a few times at another Sydney cafe and was fair to good but clearly it was a different barista and equipment.

        flynn_aus, I have to agree completely as I find the coffee very dependent on the skills of the barista. Forget different baristas, but the barista at work everyday makes coffee ranging from bad to ok..

          Ive had coffee direct from the roaster at Griffiths and it was great.

          Try the Grinders stuff and see how you go, what do you have to lose?

            I consider Grinders and their Giancarlo brand a reasonable option when visiting cafes. And then it is down to the barista/equipment from there. And as Flynn mentioned, try get it as fresh as possible.

                Hello lilmeh.....serious question. Is this a trick topic to see who would bite or have I just misunderstood something?

                In any case Im happy to bite. Please explain $5.60.....for what?  200 grams roasted coffee beans?  Because if it is for anything more, then someone is losing money big time to supply to you?

                Dya think someone on the production line can get me a brand new holden commodore for $5,600.00? ;D

                    Its their premium coffee Attilio. At that price with a bit of negotiation, they may throw in free delivery, a 3 group, aprons, t shirts, etc. ;D

                        Not a trick topic, I seriously wanted to know what people liked about it because generally speaking, I NEVER LIKED IT (when cafes use it). ok there, I said it.

                        And 250g for $5.60. Edit: for Giancarlo Arabica
                        I figured if I can make it better at home, then its time to find a new coffee stop/s.

                          so its feasible that this price is for a kilo.

                          *Edit* I see it is $5.60 for 250g. Thats not a PROPER discount!

                          I work for a mob who give me free stuff every now and then that retails for ~$40 per unit, so it is not unheard of.

                            Actually, I have no idea how much it is usually. Im calling it a discount because, um they did?

                              Im just kidding around.
                              Usually the less you buy, the higher the price per kilo, so youd probably be looking at around the $8-10 mark for a 250g bag depending on where and what.
                              Of course, its all for nothing if you dont enjoy it.
