    um, youve been TOLD by whom and for what reason?

    heres a thread further down the page that mentions that company,

    http://coffeesnobs.com.au/YaBB.pl?num=1269911586

    personally id stick to a company of YOUR choice for the reason that you like the coffee, but you may also have ethical or other considerations.

    Haha I read that thread. But thats the ethical part of things. Im wanting to find out the actual taste/image/quality of Amanti itself.

    I work for a cafe and was told we may potentially switch over to Amanti. And I cringed.

    I dont get it. Are you waiting to hear its dreadful or wonderful? And then what?

    a) Im sure Amanti will offer you a sample so that you can taste it for yourself
    b) If you cringed, then surely you have something to base that on
    c) If the owner is going to switch then learn to love it, because thats youll be drinking!

    Re: AMANTI coffee

    While I was looking for a blend to use cost was very low on the list of things considered. If your boss is considering them on that basis look at your current supplier vs them (or any new one). Take your kg price and divide it by say 80-90 drinks. Cost savings if any will be negligable. At best their may be a $0.03-0.05 per cup difference between most mainstream blends.

    What is more important is how the bean behaves on YOUR equipment and how YOUR clientele will receive it from a flavour point of view. What may be to a personal flavour of owners and staff is to some degree unimportant. So offering a dark italian roast with Robusta for example because you like it will surely turn some off. IMO a blend or single origin needs to be appealing to most palettes and if something else such as a SO or a wilder more out there blend can be made available with another grinder then great.

    What "free" things are being offered at the end of the day is marketing rubbish and whose business is your boss trying to promote his or some one elses? But if thats a consideration then so be it.

    And then there is the ethics or lack of them of some companies and on that alone Amanti will not be getting a look in with me.

    Have to agree wholeheartedly. *No such thing as a free lunch.

    Re: AMANTI coffee

    Howdy,

    my 2 cents worth.

    The best coffee served near my place of work uses Amanti coffee. I have always thought that the reason it is best is that the baristi are well trained, and dont burn the crap out of the milk (I drink black coffee at home, and will happily drink it out, if anyone can tell me a place that can match my home roasted, freshly ground, made using my GS3. No? Thought not.).

    This was before reading the above referenced links.

    Now, I have an interesting dilemma. How do I withdraw my custom from a worthwhile business, who are doing the right thing by training their staff, in a way that will actually make the culprits realise;

    a) that I am,

    b) why?

    I would truly love to make a difference, and would support a business that was thinking of going with another coffee supplier, but just dont think my protest withdrawal of my occasional coffee will make any waves.

    Would love to hear any thoughts.

    Cheers,

    s

    Re: AMANTI coffee

    Dennis, Im not wanting to hear dreadful or wonderful. My point exactly of posting a thread here is to get feedback from snobs re amanti.

    Again I have no say over whether to switch over to amanti or not but imo I dont agree with the switch because there is absolutely nothing wrong with the coffee were using now plus our customers are pretty damn used to what we are using now. I had a taste of amantis blend and felt like as soon as the coffee leaves your mouth, so too does the taste. There isnt an aftertaste, although I gotta say that amantis coffee is more aromatic, but thats about it. Taste wise, its quite crap.

    Re: AMANTI coffee

    Hi CVV

    I have tasted very fresh Amanti coffee made on a good machine and it was acceptable. Nothing unique or special about it - just average coffee made to a price I suspect.

    I also tasted it in Corryong over Easter and it was one of the worst coffees Ive ever had - but I suspect most of this was due to the barrista.

    So if you get it very fresh I dont think youll loose customers, but you certainly wont gain any new customers by switching to Amanti, which is the point I would make to your boss !!

    Good luck
    Mokka.

    The place in Griffith I used to drink at used Amanti, good coffee, however one of the worst coffees I have ever had was amanti so echo the above about the barista having a big effect on the "whats in the cup". That said there are much better options out there for your supply of coffee both in terms of the quality of the coffee and the quality of the company IMHO.
