Contrary to most comments I was really disappointed with this. I can’t grind it fine enough in my barista express to get correct extraction (dial set to 0 whereas every other coffee I’ve tried will effectively block at anything below 4 and normally grind to around 6-8 to get a 30s shot time. Whether it’s the incorrect extraction or just doesn’t suit our tastes but neither of us liked this at all, very bitter. Granted it’s really cheap but, given my hatred of waste, I couldn’t bring myself to bin it and it became a chore to get through the remainder. I wouldn’t buy more.
Literally bought some of this last week, to me it's vile, tastes like watered down grass. However it is down to taste, not for me, my wife didn't like it either. Still if you like it 2kg for £8.92 is a bargain. Maybe could mix it if you don't like it?
desparate times, I guess.....but I found this to be pretty rubbish stuff - I've had nicer instant
I thought it was really rather unpleasant when I tried it. Each to their own though.

Anyone tried it?
Brilliant,

Thanks for this @devinn I had only just set an alert up for this having bought some previously around Black Friday.
I think it’s amazing value this stuff, it seems to work really well in our Delonnghi Bean to Cup machine.

We still occasionally treat ourselves to something different from one of the local Bean Roasting companies but this is very much our preferred day to day bean now.

It clumps up in to pellets well in the machine which tends to be a good sign as well as tasting good obviously

Thanks!

Yeah we use this, I like a strong coffee, no complaints personally. Use it in my bean to cup machine
Been drinking it for about a month now, it's decent bean. I'm happy with it. There is better out there for sure but not at that price. I had subscribed to it monthly through Amazon in March and this deal is a quid cheaper

Got it last week and it's perfectly drinkable. Beans are a bit inconsistently roasted and oily but it's so cheap, what do you expect. Their Happy Belly Colombian was better but it's also twice the price. Remarkable value if you aren't picky.

Yeah we got it last time, its okay actually we normally make lattes and flat whites from it and it has a decent strong flavour

These beans are very similar to lavazza. Very nice.
Heat added
Need to get some more now I'm down to my last few kilos of this

Whilst the coffee heads are in the place! Anyone found an similar alternative to 'Hot lava Java' beans?
Vile vile vile
I bought this a month ago as we're working from home and getting through coffee beans like they're going out of fashion.
For the price, I can't complain at all - still better than instant or the 'barista' style instants like azero and Millicano in my opinion.
Not as good as other beans.

I can't remember what I bought specifically but it was 6kg from eBay for about £40 and they were really really good!
Just found them - "Rio Oro Grande" at 6kg for £38 delivered
I’m not the biggest fan of this coffee but this is a great price for an average bean
Wish I could get decaf at this price. Since I moved to decaf I'm drinking coffee at all times of day instead of just in the morning, and we're getting through 4kg of beans a month. At around £15 a kilo that's an expensive habit. Cheapest I've found are Pelicon Rouge from Amazon at about £11, but it's not great. Swiss water decaf is typically £18 or more.
Had this several times. Not the best but certainly acceptable. The price becomes more of a factor when you drink as much coffee as I do.
All I can say is these are absolutely rank!
Great find op.. I usually buy Lavazza Tierra beans from Amazon which we love. But 2kg of decently reviewed beans at this price is a no brainer.
I've found this perfectly acceptable especially for the price, use it in my bean to cup. Lavazza is definitely better but it's good for the money and availability.

Have to agree on the Lavazza Tierra - far more cash than these, but they are my new favorite for sure. Amazon price fluctuates almost daily. Nearly £15 yesterday, but £13,78 today. So just check your browsing history once a day to catch the best prices.

I congratulate you on your hate of waste, it's the sort of thing I would do but starting to realize life is too short and there is always the food recycling bin!
Thanks for saving me some money.

Grind it all up and use as rich fertiliser for the plants

Anyone know of a good reasonably priced coffee machine to go with these?

I’ve has this 3 times before when it’s been around the £4/kg mark, using in an ESAM 4200. I’m not a coffee Connoisseur but happy with this as a daily morning brew. Beats instant hands down.
Everybody seems to be assuming this coffee is consistent in its blend and character.

Major brands and blends will be - it’s crucial for them. I very much doubt that this will be, and that probably accounts for the differing opinions. The blend will probably change with every batch, according to the prices of the beans
Awful coffee, however, the do make an pretty acceptable cold-brew. I actually buy it just for that purpose.

Absolutely this spot on! Probably the only beans I’ve literally thrown in the bin as they were that bad. Apparently not as bad though if kept for making cold brew in the summer, but that would probably taste borderline gross too with these. Seriously, so far I’ve always found you get what you pay for with coffee beans. Spend a bit more people and stay away from oily beans like others have mentioned. Terrible for extraction.

These beans are very similar to lavazza. Very nice.


I bought a kilo of Lavazza Rossa from Amazon a few weeks back - and I don't like it much, it seems to make really weak espresso.

What type of machine do you have? On mine you can turn the strength up.

It's Magimix - although it's never been a good machine, seems to get blocked all the time. But it doesn't like this coffee. There is no way to alter strength apart from putting more coffee in.

Morrisons Molten Magma.
I nearly opted for these beans but reviews didn't appear good. I'm now currently using these through my Delonghi Magnifica and so far quite impressed....amazon.co.uk/gp/…c=1
