Could you please suggest coffee subscription service?
I've got this idea of gifting coffee subscription to relatives of mine. They've got Breville The Barista Express coffee machine. This one has a grinder, so I'm after reasonably freshly roasted beans, delivered regularly. Different types of coffee each delivery to make it interesting. They live in Brisbane, if that matters, but I guess it's all the same if they are posted.
Could you please suggest something ? I'm thinking, say, 0.5kg per month for 6 months? I've found BeanHunters and 3000thieves so far - are they bad/OK/good/great? What would you recommend?
Quite a few of the CoffeeSnobs site sponsors do coffee bean subscriptions. You can look through the sponsor list at the bottom of each web page. I think that Crema Coffee Garage would have the subscription you're after i.e. 0.5kg/month.
Industry beans do the best roast I've found so far, the rose st blend, and offer free shipping (not sure if that's interstate though). They also have changing single origin roasts and seasonal blends.
Bean hunter is great. Different roaster every fortnight. Always good quality, Sometimes fantastic. I've got to know about lots of good roasters that id never have tried through this.
probably too late to be helpful to the OP. sorry bout that.
That's my favorite too - I often head into their Little Collins St. store to pick up a 1kg bag...
