Santos in the UK

Postby Danomar » Fri Dec 20, 2013 3:43 pm

And not Santas, mind you!

I am searching for a reliable source of Brazilian Santos beans in the UK. HasBean are wonderful folks but their stock varies considerably and often they do not sell things as mundane as regular old Santos.

I got some Santos beans from Algerian Coffe Stores which were treated appallingly.

Any other suggestions for sources in the UK?

TIA

A quick google turns up some possible suppliers in the UK but I do not know any of them.

Oddly enough Amazon list them & there are a lot of offers on ebay.

The only Company I know that I believe stock them are "pumphreys-coffee.co.uk".

No idea re quality on Amazon & Ebay but Pumphries have an excellent reputation

Thanks, Ron! I'll give Pumphries a try then.

Hi, I think this coffee is sold in UK too:
Mod's edit: Yes you do because your company sells it. Link deleted. Please read the FAQ and respect our no advertising rules, thank you.
I tasted and I found it very good (caramel and milk chocolate cookies hints) but I do not know if they are still selling it in UK...
