This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Quick update. Looks like the other varieties are also slightly discounted, including the lighter roast and dark espresso roast. All under £10/kg.


These beans have good reviews and currently down to £8.84 for 1KG. So much cheaper and nicer than most the stuff in supermarkets.

At the normal price of £10.42 it was already good value!

These will be good in the delonghi bean to cup machine I got a month ago thanks to hotdeals

Found these to have an overly burnt flavour, wouldn't buy again
A good price for a 100% Arabica, however, it’s a fairly poor quality coffee bean and wouldn’t buy irrespective of price.

Expect it to be 6months+ since it was roasted, weak in flavour and a fairly poor espresso shot overall. If your after a good crema, The Spiller and Tait (usually £15/kg) is probably the cheapest you’ll find that’ll produce an ok’ish shot.

Thanks for the feedback.
I've had these before and yes they are dark, but not as burnt as many others I've tried. They are mean to be 3/5 on roast.

Very true about the length of time since roast. Amazon is such a lottery with it. Picked up some Bantam beans on offer in Sainsburys yesterday, half the bags on the shelf were roast in July!

They have literally said what they recommend in a post you have quoted, lol.

No - they referenced the cheapest drinkable coffee in their view, not what they’d actually recommend. If I wanted cheap coffee I’d have bought the one in this post...

I tend to alternate between single origin and house blends, all of the espresso type, medium roast. As long as it’s a fresh roast then I find that the results are usually good. I only every buy 200g at time (although not the cheapest way of buying) as I find the results vary significantly with coffee more than 3 weeks old. Union Revelation (about £6 for 200g plus p&p) is what I’d recommend. I also have a work colleague who flys to Rome most weekends and brings back probably the best (albeit dark roast) from a local roaster for approx €20 per 200g.

No, now please stop embarrassing yourself. Others have kindly offered something useful. It’s people like them that keep me on this site.

Have to agree that Union Revelation is very good quality coffee. I found the roast every so slightly too light for me as I have espressos so can pick up sour notes too easily. Currently liking Starbucks House Blend (sells at Costco for a good price).

On top of what they have already said and you did not realize, that is great for you, good stuff!
If you like Crema coffee then I can reccomend this:

hotukdeals.com/dea…582

Probably my best at the moment. No burnt taste as mentioned on this post with this coffee.
Shame as at a glance it looked good and I was about to order.

Heat to OP for find though

Either get Union coffee, or go into a proper coffee shop or roasters (or order online) and drink some that actually fresh!

£6/7 for 300g really isn't bad and getting something with a roast date instead of best before is a really good idea.

These posts aren't deals at all, being cheap doesn't mean you're getting value for your money, especially with bottom of the barrel coffee.
Has anyone got recommendations for cafetiere/moka pot beans? Currently on pelican rouge barista beans but always looking for more nice beans to try.

These are quite nice, as are most of the beans from this site. £15 a kg isn't too bad either and extra 10% off your first order
