I’ve said it before on a thread about these beans. I bought 2kg for £8 and it’s very clear why they’re so cheap. I’m not that fussy when it comes to coffee but having only managed to finish one bag I’m seriously tempted to chuck the second in the bin. They’re awful and I tend to drink mine as a latte.

On my barista express I also need to grind these at ‘0’ and technically overfill/pack the basket to get anything close to the correct extraction time, all other beans I’ve tried are ground between 4-7 on the dial...this suggests to me these solimo beans are very old, the crema is poor too (comparing to other 100% arabica beans, not robusta blends where you’d expect a better crema anyway).

You can send your 2nd bag to me
I've just got my order for this coffee and everyone drinks it, heat added
I got these for ~£5 a few months ago. I'd describe them as Perfectly fine and unexciting.

I had to add a shot of Syrup to get any taste.

But I paid £5 for 2kg, can't complain!

Won't be buying again however.
Would be interested to hear if anybody can compare this to the Lavazza beans I normally get (these).
Always looking to try out some new beans.

Probably back down again soon around Black Friday - I doubt you'll be buying any more though!

Thanks for the heads up...you’re right though, I don’t get through enough coffee to mean that the £14/kg beans I’m currently enjoying significantly affect my disposable income!

This is around the normal price. I have bought this for just under £7 before. The last batch I bought wasn’t that good, lacked flavour. Previous batches have been good and I have bought lots since release. If you get a good batch it’s similar to Lavazza.
The Lavazza beans are leagues ahead.
This is the normal price (superb price though it is). They're ok, if you get a good bag... worth having in the cupboard for when you forget to buy decent ones.
I still have that barrel full of Jamaican Blue Mountain in the shed.

They're horrible.
Agree taste like fag ash
These beans are acceptable if your brewing an americano or filter style coffe.

They're not gonna knock your socks of, they don't pack a punch but I drink several cups of them a day and find them perfectly acceptable.

Like many things it's personal taste, but if you like em then they're a money saver compared to branded, where you're paying for the brand alongside the product.

I buy the Lavazza Rossa beans and find them perfectly acceptable, unlike these Solimo ones which I thought were vile.

I'd like to try some other brands, but every time I do I'm disappointed and then feel obliged to finish (to save waste) bags of coffee that I don't like. So I just keep buying the Lavazza.
Haha Lavazza are worse dust scrappings than Starbucks. At least I know not to touch these if they are worse!

I'll stick to Pelican Rouge. Better than Lavazza and cheaper. Reviews for these Solimo ones are mixed at best.
I bought some of these a month ago, and you are getting what you pay for. Will never buy again, I used them for expresso in a jura machine at the office, office visitors were not impressed, but it reduced the number of coffee's from around 20 a day to less than 10.and a Magnifica machine at home. The result was the same bitter weak taste and no crema.
I use them in a Delonghi machine to make long blacks/Americanos and they’re fine. No worse than Lavazza to me. Though the packets I’m using are a bit old, so maybe newer batches are worse. But for everyday drinking they’re fine.

If you want proper coffee then go to a local roastery and get freshly roasted beans - anything from a supermarket is going to be crap compared to freshly roasted beans.
