<<<<<MUST try Andys beans over yonder and the product produced by our many sponsor roasters. They really care about quality and freshness.
MUST avoid. Anything sitting on a supermarket shelf, in an open bucket/bin going stale or sitting in a grimy wall mounted hopper in a place that has no idea what it is or when it was roasted. Im pretty suss on unintelligible roasting codes on packaging as well.
Beware anything with a best before date well into the future. Brown beans do not "mature like a fine wine" or "age gracefully"..
Enjoy your sampling ;)
