Ditto to the James's Gourmet and Karimikui - a beautiful coffee, from one of the very best roasters.
It's a lovely idea to try coffee from all the world's great roasters. But, I've heard that flying coffee once it's roasted can do strange things to it (air pressure in cargo holds and all that jazz), and, together with what I imagine must be significant shipping costs, freshness, and transit miles issues, it might be best to try these roasters if ever you happen to be in their home countries... And in the meantime, simply take advantage of so many different, wonderful coffees that have been skillfully roasted more locally in the UK, by those various people mentioned above... :)

You could also try some of the offerings from the newly crowned French roasting champion!

Roasting becames my passions.

(I can't get this joke out of my head, sorry)

You MUST definitely try brand new czech roastery: http://www.doubleshot.cz/?___store=en&___from_store=czDoubleshot

Their coffees are just amazing! Microlots, honey coffees, etc. perfect!

It's slow going - had some James' Gourmet (Karamikui - yes, I agree, very nice - and La Laguna - lovely and fruity) and the four pack from Coffee Collective (I really really liked these, and arrived within a couple of days of roasting, so very impressive :) )

I'm not going to try all of those on the list - for a start, a lot of them don't offer international shipping or don't do mail order at all (assuming my Google translate is working well enough :P ). But I'm looking forward to slowly expanding my experience of international roasters as well as trying lots more UK ones :)

where could one obtain these offerings? saving on international shipping charges every now and then wouldn't be a bad thing really...

In Italy:
Slitti (Tuscany)
Mokaflor (firenze)
Vergnano (Milan)

and what I really love is the Sidamo single origine produced by the second company:

Any updates on this? I know toomuchcoffee is dying out but KingSeven's list has been my essential travel guide for years now and I'd be curious to find out if he has any updates to his list? Let's hope against hope that he still reads toomuchcoffee :-)

Also crossing my fingers for a KingSeven update - but in the meantime, although I don't get to try as many international coffee roasters as he does, (in addition to his list) I've had and would recommend:

Australia:
Brother Espresso

Sweden:
Drop Coffee

U.S.:
Heart Coffee Roasters

Germany:
Roestbar
The Barn
5 Elephants


France:
Belleville


Guatemala:
Paradigma


New Zealand:
Flight
Framework (not actually had anything from them yet, but it's John & Jess previously of Square Mile, so we can take tasty as a given :) )

Japan:
Maruyama Coffee


That's off the top of my head - I'll try and remember to post any more I come across!
