Hello

From experience I can recommend the following online retailers, they all provide very fresh roasted coffee, fast delivery and have a tremendous selection.

http://shop.squaremilecoffee.com
http://www.hasbean.co.uk
http://www.jamesgourmetcoffee.com

What method are you using to make your coffee?

thanks chris

i use a superjolly and a Gaggia classic

the classic is hit and miss a bit but i usually produce something decent

one day I will treat myself to an alex or something that will give me more consistent results

In that case treat yourself to a bag of autumn espresso from Square Mile and a Bold Red Espresso from James's Gourmet. Hasbean have introduced some new blends recently but if I was you I'd give their new Jailbreak blend a try. I tend to buy a couple of bags from one roaster then when they are about to finish I make a totally different order to another one so I always have fresh coffee and get to enjoy a wide variety of flavours.

Hope that helps for a start, if you try different coffees each time then at least you will be able to find a blend or roast style that suits your own personal tastes.

Cheers
Chris
