Having purchased our bean to cup coffee machine over two years ago we have tried many brands of coffee beans including some of the expensive well known brands with various results. We decided to give this brand a try after reading the reviews. Each KG pack contained four 250 gm packs which means that we are only opening one pack to fill our hopper each time with the rest of the packs remaining sealed and fresh. The packs also have a date on which the beans were roasted which is a nice touch. When the coffee first appeared in the glass it was clear that this coffee was something special in the way that the coffee blended in the glass and the smoothness of the crema of my latte.. The taste was smooth with no bitter after taste. A first class coffee at a competitive price that we will be purchasing again.
Let me start off by saying I love the taste of the coffee. It's great as you get 4 sealed packs to keep your coffee fresh. As a coffee drinker I would say its one of the best tasting coffee I've tested. Will definitely buy again and recommend it to my friends.
I bought these beans to use in my new bean to cup machine. I have never had a machine before, had made french press coffee but never that impressed with it as the ground stuff went stale fairly fast and the washing up was a pain. So choosing this coffee was a case of checking the reviews carefully and picking something that wasn't ludicrously expensive. I'm very pleased with the coffee - it's got a good depth of flavour without being too bitter. Everyone who has tried it has enjoyed it, from serious coffee addicts to casual drinkers. Will buy again. Added to say, have bought a second batch, it's still excellent and now can add the window cleaner to the list of people who love it....
These coffee beans appeared much darker than previous beans I used, although the specification were similar.
It's great that these come in 4 individual bags as it would be very difficult to store 1kg of coffee without losing the flavour.
The roasted date is on the brown paper bag that the coffee arrived in and it was nice to see that the beans were roasted only a couple of weeks before arrival.
The coffee has a nice smooth finish and you get a decent kick from the caffeine content. I have tried using with aero press paper filters and aero press inverted with metal mesh filter. The best results have been with the latter as I didn't find it strong enough with the paper, the mesh allowed the oils through which really brings the coffee alive (I'd imagine you'd get similar results with a cafetiere) I have found I seem to use quite a lot of these beans for a cup. I calculate that the 1 250g bag will last me 10 days when making 2 generous strong cups per day, So 1kg will last about a month and a half, but this still only equates to about 0.15p a cup - I'd happily pay £3 for a more inferior coffee at a service station so it's still very good value.
Originaly purchased it to try. Liked it, so took it to work to see if my coleagues will feel the same way and they do! It makes you feel so clear and refreshed and it lasts for hours. The very first time I tasted the Dellafe it was such a vast difference in the taste.
Different flavour. Quite smooth gentle roast. Not quite my favourate full rich roast for top espresso result that I always aim for. Have tried different grind sizes with no improvement - shame cos price is excellent.
My coffee only took one day after I ordered it to arrive, which was fantastic. Iv'e already had a few cups as I love my morning coffee and i'm really pleased with the taste. It was really smooth which you don't always get, and tasted as good as a cup you'd get off the high street, but at a quarter of the price. Overall, great taste, great price and fast delivery. Glad I purchased!
I am no coffee expert so just treat this as an average Joe review. The price is right, the 250g bags are convenient and above all the taste suites me. I use in a bean to cup machine - maybe not the best method but there it is, I am lazy. I will buy again.
