Makes a decent cup of coffee and great value. I've just had my second batch of 6 delivered.

Should add that if you buy direct from Gimoka, orders over £19.99 are delivered free - in my experience fast and by courier.

Good price.

Was trying to find the blend makeup - it seems to be 80% Robusta, 20% Arabica
How does this compare with lavazza? Got 20x 1kg bags to get through.....
Looks like Lavazza imitation. Will go stale before use in that quantity.

Depends which Lavazza bean/blend? I assume you are talking about the Qualita Rossa (the Ocado missprice?). In terms of blend - that's 40% Arabica (20% for this) and (normally! ) more expensive as a result!

Nice find
Bit of an update if you are slightly into the details of coffee - As I understand there are basically 2 varieties, Robusta and Arabica where, as a rule, Arabica is the more expensive but slightly lower in caffeine. Robusta is more commonly used for Instant coffee. Most consider 100% Arabica the best "blend", and I was not aware of there being a 100% Robusta "blend" until seeing Gimoka! - Lidl's BellaRoma is 100% Arabica, and I personally prefer that even to Lavazza (plus amazingly it's much lower in cost)!

I Checked out the gimoka site, and they have a range of blends from mixes of Robusta/Arabica to 80% Arabica (more expensive than Lidl's 100% Arabica), and they indicate the different strengths of taste - the best prices I have found anywhere for the higher % Robusta blends

All that said, the bottom line is that there are many factors as to what the taste of any coffee is like. Depends what your preferences are, I guess.

I was a bit cheeky, and emailed Gimoka to find out if I could twist their arm for a small "freebie sample" - hey, why not!? Some companies will do that haha. The guy replied quickly but wasn't playing ball. They will only sell online - no plans to sell to stores. Although they sell to anyone, the "impression" I got was that they prefer to sell to businesses - can't blame them for wanting to sell in quantity!

For free delivery you have to spend £19 - seems fair to me. So if you want to take a punt, and you use a lot of coffee (beans), plus aren't a dedicated 100% Arabica blend drinker, I'd suggest you buy 4 different types from them, and so get free delivery.
