Hi everyone, Can you possibly help me? I am a Visual artist associated with Salford University and will shortly be holding an exhibition there. My problem is that I need several kilos of roast coffee beans for visual effect amongst some of my sculptures. They are not for consumption so
" ruined" beans would be ok. Obviously, I need to keep cost to a minimum. Where can I get suitable beans? Can you help? or advise me
regards Lee machell

Hi Lee - why don't you try contacting some of the roasters on the UK page of the "resources" tab on the home page (Roberts are near to you for instance). Most roasters have a fair amount of old beans lying around.
