Product Description

Product Description

Rave Coffee only uses top quality coffee from the worlds best farms. Here in our roastery at the heart of the Cotswolds we batch roast our fresh coffee daily and extensively cup for quality assurance. We like to support the farmers that we work with and pay sustainable prices for our beans meaning our coffee is sourced with an ethical approach. Raves take on the 'Continental Blend'. We Roast this blend just a hint darker than our usual style and added a splash of high quality Robusta. The result is a coffee that punches through milk and delivers a welcomed kick of caffeine! As Cappuccino this coffee punches through milk - Dark chocolate and cocoa. Rich, full bodied and satisfying.

I bought these coffee beans on the strength of the other reviews here and elsewhere. (and because I've heard good things about Rave Coffee)

The blend itself is very good and the beans were roasted not so long ago. The ones I received however were not quite as fresh as I would have liked, having been roasted 3 weeks prior to me receiving them. Most people would agree that beans are at their peak somewhere between 5 and 20 days after roasting. This means that while my first shot was very good, by the time I get anywhere near finishing this enormous bag, they will long have gone stale... The delivery was very quick so this can't have been the issue. Perhaps I should have made enquiries as to the best time to order beforehand. They are still much better than anything you would find in a supermarket. (and sadly, many cafés)

That's the objective part over, now on to the more personal bit:

If you are the kind of person who enjoys drinking coffee in Starbucks, then these beans are for you. Don't hesitate to buy! You will not be disappointed! With the right care and attention, (or some good coffee making equipment) these beans will transport you right there. If, however, you prefer the coffee in Costa, or in Café Nero, or even in a nice Italian restaurant somewhere, then you may want to think twice before ordering these beans. I personally found the title a bit misleading as to me these beans just don't taste like what I expect from an 'Italian' blend.

The crema these beans produce is excellent, but this comes at a cost, because one of the reasons for this is the use of Robusta beans in the blend, which also give the shot more bitter tones due to the higher caffeine content.

5.0 out of 5 stars savour the flavour 18 July 2013
Verified Purchase
One of these days, my doctor's going to work out how coffee I drink.

Don't buy these beans. They're full of flavour, giving a cracking coffee taste with no bitterness - so I'm now officially a coffee addict.

Use in my bean to cup machine and even on the 4th cup of the morning you have to pause to savour the flavour.

Good price, painless delivery and I think you can taste that they've been roasted recently rather than being stuck in a warehouse for months.

Very nice coffee, doesn't grind into nothing and you get your money's worth from the bag. I'm an espresso drinker and found this coffee worth a second purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars A raving success 6 May 2014
By Flyboy
Verified Purchase
If you like a dark roast and a good punchy flavour, with no bitterness, you need look no further.

On the practical front, these are very well behaved beans. They grind cleanly, in my burr grinder, without coating everything in range with clingy dust. The ground coffee doesn't stick, electrostatically, to the grinder hopper so it pours without mess in to the portafilter. Finally, after extraction it knocks out from the portafilter fairly easily.

After the usual trial and error with grind fineness, grind time and tamping pressure that is required when you try a new bean I have found this coffee to be nice and consistent. It has a good crema and, as others have noted, the rich flavour does not get lost in the milk of a cappuccino. For the price I think this coffee is very hard to beat - it punches well above its weight.

If I had one little wish it would be for the beans to come in 4 x 250 gram packs to keep it in optimal condition. However, the rate that I'm drinking it at probably makes that a frill too far and would almost certainly put the price up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Star----s 10 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase
Liked the sound of this UK roasting business and have to say that the coffee is full of flavour and will even retain its rich complexity after a second or third addition of hot water. Real coffee taste is hard to come by so carry on the good work Rave and do not try anything new!

The beans were slightly oily and tasted "old". Made a good milk based coffee such as cappuccino or latte however.
