Tried this. Don't like it at all! Too bitter and no aroma at all. I usually buy Tchibo coffee beans, which are 100% arabica and cost less than £7 for kilo when on offer. Also Darboven Mövenpick Espresso, which is £11 for kilo, but really nice tasting coffee.

I've no experience of these, but get some great reviews for a £9 kg bag. I know its not 100% Arabica, but wont be for that price. Any real world reviews gratefully receieved.

These are the more Starbucks/Costa type of strong, dark, slightly bitter coffee. If that's what you like you'll like these.

They also do a decaf which is very good and I drank for a year or so. I saw pelican rouge as the brand that often gets put in vending machines in offices etc and I was a but dubious about them but was quite happy with their decaf beans.

Thanks Rimi. Could you post a link to the Tchibo variant you mention. That way I can leave it in my browsing history to watch for the price to drop. Cheers
Looks reasonable but I believe it's always this price - so hardly a "deal".

Think you may need to buy direct from Tchibo. Here's their current line up of beans:
shop.tchibo-coffee.co.uk/col…fee

Can also vouch for Pelican's Decaf - I only drink decaf and it's very tasty indeed and my general go to unless there's an amazing price drop on Lavazza's decaf..
I'd like the Tchibo link as well. I've been on their site but they have quite a few different types, and wonder which one is it that you're keen on. Thanks.
i thought it was charcoal
Cheers for posting. Always see these on Amazon so I’ve bought a pack. Oh and lightening cables and 4 other loads of garbage that I didn’t really need from Amazon!! Cheers for posting OP

Love these beans , now they have short expiry date, but usually you can get them for same £39 on bank holidays. Just subscribe to newsletter and they will send you email, when price is down.
Café Crème is perfect too, especially for those, who love stronger taste.

Don't know, just my personal experience. Bought on Black Friday 6kg for £29.99 too.
Edited by: "Rimi" 23rd Apr
Agree with others, these are over roasted, very bitter, and we aren't very picky. Drinkable but I wouldn't buy again.
Amazon's Happy Belly Colombian were the same price but less aggressive in roast and are better in our judgment.

These beans are bitter because they are predominantly Robusta beans. Robusta are known for bitterness and higher caffeine content. Not a fault of the brand per say.

what type of bean would you recommend to someone who suffers with acid reflex as some beans do affect me.
I prefer the Pelican Rouge Barista, Not quite as bitter but strong. Good value though.

All beans are inherently acidic, avoid robusta entirely, stick to 100% Arabica. Personally having bought it several times, I'd recommend Java Planet for a genuinely smooth non acidic taste
I'm also about to open these Amazon Lavazza Arabica to see if a philistein like me can appreciate the 100% Arabica
I always cheer up when I go to a place with a Pelican Rouge vending machine, simply because their vending machine coffee is so much nicer than the standard Klix offerring that most places have for visitors.
Hi. I’m into coffee and I have nespresso for a long time but decided to have proper espresso. What machine and grinder that is good priced is out there? Don’t want anything too expensive. Thank you
This is the normal price, no?

Everything about this description is wrong. Robusta is used in cheap consumer coffees where's it's over-roasted so no one has to put up with the horrible, bitter taste. Even cheap espresso blends usually have mostly Arabica and less Robusta.

And strength 5/5 is meaningless. Any numbered rating on a coffee is utter nonsense.

This is horrible stuff.

Everyone will have a different opinion on this, including me! I have owned a few grinders and espresso machines in the past and the two that I would recommend are:

Sage Bambino Plus (Less than £200 on offer) This is a little expensive for a "starter" espresso machine but honestly it just does everything right with little hassle. You still get to feel like a barista but it helps you out a bit, especially with milk. The coffee it makes is top notch and honestly I would stretch for this if you can, it's solid!

Krups Expert Burr Grinder (Less that £40 on offer) I would not say this is the best grinder in the world but it is pretty good for the money and has plenty of settings allowing you to dial in just the right grind for your espresso machine. Just make sure you get a burr grinder over a bladed kind, burr grinders will ensure a much more even grind and they will not spoil the coffee before you've even brewed it!

Bonus! Aeropress (Less than £30 on offer) If you are only making coffee for yourself and you don't mind not having a milk frother than honestly you cannot get a better tasting, cheaper way of making coffee than with an Aeropress. In fact even if you buy another coffee machine you should get one of these just for how portable they are. I've got one at work just so I don't have to drink the standard black treacle made from the filter coffee machine.

This is my first post and I hope my small bit of experience helps you!

I agree with this. Vending machine coffe is awful and I usually just grab a 25p PG tips cuppa, but when I see a Pelican Rouge vender I get a coffee. Very smooth.

If you want to do espresso properly, even on the cheap, don't spend that much less on your grinder than you do on your espresso machine. If possible, spend more. The grinder is far more important.

Well if you take the recommendation above from DarkSkies for the Sage Bambino, which is a very good recommendation (you won't beat that machine when you can find it for £200, it's an utter bargain), you'd do well to match it with a Sage grinder, like the Smart Grinder Pro which is around £175.

You could, if you were so inclined once coffee becomes an obsession, choose to upgrade. These days, going to a grinder like the Niche Zero would be an incredible upgrade to the above pairing, even matched to the same espresso machine that costs twice less than it does.

But you will need to find fresh, well selected, well roasted coffee beans from a company that knows what they're doing to get the best from your kit. That's even more important.

And no, no sugar in espresso. Well foamed milk will add enough sweetness if you're making a milk based drink.

Depends what you want. For the money, the Sage Bambino can't be beaten. If you want a 'proper' espresso machine, you'd have to spend much more. The Sage Barista Express or Barista Pro, while more expensive, have integrated grinders. They're less flexible for upgrading but exceptional domestic machines. I've had a Barista Pro over a year now, having downgraded from a more expensive, more powerful setup, and I do not regret it. It makes exceptional espresso. Sounds like I'm obsessed with Sage, but unless you want to spend thousands, there aren't many other options. And the thermojet technology on the Barista Pro is incredible.

One of those few options, and a purer one, might be the Rancilio Silvia. It's been around for years, regularly updated and upgraded, well engineered and in the right hands makes a great drink. But being an old fashioned single boiler model, you need to know how to use it and it needs to be well matched to a grinder.

Think it's probably equivalent to their dose control grinder. It's a great machine, anyway. Search for it here and you'll see there are deals on it that come along very regularly.

As for roasters, there are hundreds to be found online, of various quality. Companies like Pact, Union Roasted, Extract and Rave would be good places to start. Rave and Union I often go back to. Rave is great value for 1KG amounts. But at the moment I'm a fan of Neighbourhood Coffee Roasters in Liverpool and Coffelink, also very well priced, as well as Adams & Russell. Don't buy from Amazon, you don't know how fresh it is, and forget supermarkets entirely.
