I was shopping local Aldi in Motherwell today and found priced premium coffee. I think it's Christmass clearance. Hope it's nationwide.

Thanks for posting. Brilliant price considering most beans come in 227g packs so this is double the size!

That's truth. Tesco's cheapest coffee beans 227g are for £2.20

any idea how these taste compared to Taylor's lazy sunday or Costa beans?
bargain at this price!

Are they espresso beans or filter coffee ones?

Yes, they are. But first must put'em in grinder.

Which? Are they for an espresso machine or a cafetière? They shouldn't be for both?

Yes.

If they taste of coffee then that's one step better than those Taylor lazy Sunday beans. Yuk!

They are beans-so you grind them for your use. Coarse for cafatierre and finer for machine.

My question wasn't about the grind, I have a La San Marco SM-90 for that and a two head Gaggia Evolution for the espresso. I have just never really found a decent coffee in England that was worth the money. There are a couple that I thought were really good for £6-7 for 250g but the rest I've tried are no better and often worse than stuff you buy in a supermarket. I've just never shopped in Aldi - the nearest one is 20 miles away - so I've never seen this to try it.

If it doesn't say whether it is for drip coffee or espresso on the pack then it probably won't be worth the drive.

There are many upsides to being married to a woman who owned a coffee shop in the coffee capital of America. The one downside is that she can smell the difference between good and average coffee through the hole in the bag (she's not been wrong yet)...and I'm still shipping beans in from Eugene, Oregon till I find something. It ain't cheap...

good read - and beans from oregon can't be cheap!
we only drink filter coffee and have found Aldi's Ethiopian coffee to be one of the best out there!
one thing that no coffee shops offer though is powdered milk I.e. coffeemate instead of milk. it makes the coffee a wonderful caramel colour and really adds to the coffee ibstead of looking like mud.

we always go for Sainsburys own (in the red box).

You can put any kind of coffee in any kind of coffee maker according to your personal taste - it's the fineness of the grind that determines which coffee maker you use. A fine grind is for a pressurised espresso machine and a coarser grind for a filter or plunger type coffee maker. In general darker roast coffees tend to be used in espresso machines but this is not a definitive must. I bought the Costa Colombian coffee earlier in the year and it was good and I used it in my espresso machine, using a ceramic burr hand grinder (Porlex brand from Japan). The Aldi Colombian is not a very dark roast, if that helps.
