  • Advice - Where to buy coffee beans

    Hi all,

    I know it's been covered 100s of times but I'm a newbie to making my own coffee. Just received my new machine and grinder yesterday and have all but gone through the sample pack of beans they gave.

    Too much reading of different strategies and reviews makes it difficult.

    In a nutshell I am looking for a smooth creamy coffee taste. I'm not into the bitter etc. I also understand its how it's made as well however that's the kind of taste and texture I am after.

    If someone can suggest a place in Sydney to go to today or one of our sponsors beans I'm more than happy to give it a whirl.


    Thanks

    Blake

        Why not plan ahead and order from Coffee Snobs BeanBay, you won't do better.

        The sample pack would be a good starting point.

        CoffeeSnobs - BeanBay - Roasted Coffee - Roasted Sample Pack

                Fair enough Caps.

                Realise Blake was looking for retail in Syd, just thought a heads up may be useful for the future, seems a lot of members are unaware Beanbay offers some of the best beans, roasted or green available at very fair prices.

                    True that! But with one edit 'the best beans, roasted or green available at the best prices'. By the way - I am in the middle of a roasting session with some of those greens right now!

                      Hi guys.

                      I'm aware that sponsors on here sell. However I was out and wanted some today so I went to Coffee Alchemy.

                      Whats a smooth blend on here I can order.

                      I've literally gone through a bag of coffee today just trying to get the grinder right. Literally got it almost spot on with the way it came out of the head into the cup.

                      Probably just needed to be a tad coarser as it didn't flow the whole time it was a cross between drops and a flow both sides.

                      I also didn't mind the Jetblack espresso coffee either. The coffee Alchemy one was a bit strong and had a bit if after taste but that's probably because I used the big double shot filter cup as opposed to single shot filter cup in a tumbler glass.

                      All trial and error at the moment

                          Can certainly attest to this being a really wonderful coffee but the best way to find out, is try some for yourself...

                            Why not try the sample pack I linked to in post # 4 this thread Blake 4 different varieties x 250 grams each?

                              I just ordered 1kg espresso wow. We will see how that goes.

                              No doubt I'll stuff up my grinds on 750g of it anyway haha
