Subject: Fresh Mail order Coffee in the UK
OK, so once I get my new machine, I'm going to need some good coffee to
put into it. Seems folks here reckon freshly roasted makes a difference
(so far I've put up with freshly ground).

Can anyone recommend a good mail-order source of fresh roast coffee in
the UK? I've used Red Monkey in the past, and they seemed fine, but it
doesn't specify on their site if it's fresh roast (though they do sell
green beans and a roaster, there's a baby on the way and my financial
priorities will be there...)

First, fresh roasted then freshly ground is a MUST for good coffee.

You can't go far wrong with HasBean, Steve Leighton's passion for what he
does is an inspiration to us all. Also, consider joining
toomuchcoffee.com, it's an invaluable resource for us European
coffee/espresso geeks.

Steven.

P.S. let us know what machine and grinder you're waiting on... :oD

Kind regards

Two. Monmouth is a very good roaster, although they might have a higher
shipping cost than you want; I wound up stopping by. Hill & Valley, up
in Aylesbury, have a couple of good coffees, although I found Charlie's
taste to run to darker roasts than I generally prefer. They're at
<http://www.hillandvalleycoffee.co.uk/ >, and are very nice people. I
was working near London, and generally got it the day after it was
roasted.

Best,
David

I have used Hill and Valley for a couple of years and am very happy with
them. The Bourbon Espresso is the one I like.
