    I often wonder if the farmer knows their product sells for €300 per kilo. I wonder what they would say.

    Real quality speciality coffees sell for high prices for the green bean. Good farms tend to get rewarded in quality circles of production.

    This is why a lot of people in the specialty coffee business get frustrated with the likes of 'Fairtrade' and other branded terms. Good roasters have direct relationships with farmers and they get paid fairly for the quality of produce.

    agree with the above, that Geisha stuff is grown and processed to be a "competition" coffee, the farmer knows what he's doing, and knows the value of it.

    so i just bought my first bean to coffee machine but have probably got ahead of myself as i know nothing about coffee beans!.... Im an americano drinker when im out and about

    had a nespresso and this was my tipple
    https://www.nespresso.com/ie/en/order/capsules/original/fortissio-lungo-coffee-capsule

    what type of beans should i be looking at?


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,458 ✭✭✭ Hodors Appletart


    get some supermarket beans to dial in your settings

    then buy some real beans

    A shout out to West Cork Coffee - I had an issue with delivery and customer service was spot on getting it sorted and generously refunding the order due to the delay (courier issue, no fault of WCC).

    I ordered from them for the first time about 3 weeks ago - super happy - threw in a 50g sample of another bean too which was a really nice touch - wish more places would do sample sizes tbh. Great way to try a new bean!

    What did you order. Coming to the end of my 3fe beans, which I have to say were fantastic as I got 25% off at the time before lock down.

    The Brazil - Fazenda Sertão (my favourite - would absolutely reorder on a regular basis!) and the Colombia - Finca El Nivel - also excellent. I like a nice rich, chocolately coffee mind you, not one for the citrusy ones!

    Got a sample of the Peru and it was very nice too - slightly preferred the two I ordered though.

    I'm going to try these guys out. Seems to be a good bit of word for them. How long did delivery take take?

    Assume they roast to order, or once a week?

    Every time I've ordered from WCC it's been at most 2-3 days after. He roasts on a regular basis earlier on in the week.

    Although currently the postal system is a mess, it might be a bit longer, but that's the same with basically anything at the moment.

    Just got 3 bags, delighted with them.

    I may have just got lucky but ordered the 23rd, the roast date was the 24th March and arrived on the 25th! I imagine there may be courier delays at the moment that are worse than when I ordered, but even with a few extra days it would be fresh.

    @Caviardreams,

    Ordered .

    Thanks

    Just wondering if anyone has tried the ariosa coffee subscription?
    One 500g bag per month for 6 months is 90 quid.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,943 ✭✭✭ mad m


    Got delivery today from WCC. They threw in a handmade bar of dark chocolate. Roast date was yesterday. Ordered Sunday evening. Very quick delivery.


  • Registered Users Posts: 20,677 ✭✭✭✭ Squidgy Black


    I see Indigo and Cloth have a Lychee Process coffee from Nomad on their website. Very tempted but I've way too much in the freezer at the moment and €32 for 200g is a bit pricey for an anaerobic.

    To add to this. If you buy Coffee Angel, you're by extension supporting Bailies who roast their beans or so I've been told by 3 of their baristas at different times.

    Yep few different places doing their own labelling on roasters stuff, Bear Market do the same with Silverskin I think.

    Soma is another one I left off the list, forgot they roast their own too.

    Wow. That's brilliant. Thanks so much, it's great to see so many on the list. Let's hope they all get a share.

    Thanks.
