    Best Beans

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi Guys,

    Being someone who is not up for roasting their own, what sources of whole roasted beans and what particular types/blends of beans would you recommend for someone who drinks primarily lattés and cappas?

    Located inner city melb...

    Im new to the subtle nuances of different types of coffee, so any pointers, tips, etc. are welcomed ....
