Found 5th Mar
Nice coffee beans for your coffee machine I really love the flavour on offer at £2.75 at the moment down from £3.50. You can find cheaper beans but the bonus with this is once you empty out your bag just take it to your local Starbucks who will then give you a FREE tall latte. So essentially your getting free beans for the price of a drink in the shop happy days

Just bought my very first bean to cup machine, mainly to make latte with.Would these beans be good for that or should I go for a different type?also, how long will these stay fresh once put in the machine. And shelf life in general if I was to stock up?Read so much online about how to store beans and what to do / not to do. Any advice would be appreciated, thank you


The key is that they are suitable for espresso so they're just fine for latte which is based on an espresso. Generally speaking, the fresher the beans the better as they will gradually degrade over time - nothing bad happens, they just loose some flavour & develop a stale taste. The bags are sealed and, if you look you'll see a small exit valve - this is to allow the escape of CO2 that accompanies this. The upshot is that the coffee within the unopened bag will remain good until at least the expiry on the bag..plus a bit. Once opened, air & moisture gets at the beans and this degradation is accelerated. IMO, beans begin to taste stale within a couple of weeks after opening and especially if emptying contents into machine but this is personal taste and depends on where you keep the machine hence the opened coffee. Keep any excess in a sealed tin to stop too much exposure to air and damp (- one of the only reasons for buying illy is to get a tin imo). I don't like to keep coffee in the fridge where its damp. This is why these little bags are perfect for the newbie. Don't stock up on anything much atm - buy different bags and experiment - see how you go - that's the fun of it. It's easy to go through a 250g -ish bag well within it's optimum life. I personally prefer freshly roasted coffee - usually considerably more expensive but I'm fussy enough after many years using coffee to be willing to pay the difference now and again, although I'm sustained mainly by supermarket beans. Don't be blinkered by brand names either - Try own brand beans as well and include Lidl and Aldi in your search. Good luck - have fun experimenting!

Same price in Asda when I picked some up on Saturday
we all like free so for that reason im hot great find
Usually £2.00 when on offer @Waitrose. Same promo package.
Can you find which stores accept the free drink?
Also on coffee grounds or just beans?

Edit - just checked, coffee grounds also showing same promotional sticker on pack and usually same price too.

I've rectified that for you.

Don't do it again!
it was 2 for £5.50 in Tesco in January, which worked out £2.75 per pack. at least you don't have to buy 2 packs

coffee beans are expensive so any offer is worth sharing

OOps..Maths
Good deal, heat, but not all Starbucks will accept the voucher. I found have found this out many times in different shops. "Oh sorry, we're a franchise." Brilliant.
They’ve been running this offer for years. I can’t remember the last time I paid for a bucks thanks to these vouchers. I’ve never had an issue with shops taking them and they normally don’t have an issue with having a cappuccino instead of the latte as they’re the same price. Worth keeping an eye out as they’re regularly cheaper than this. Amazon sell them in boxes for really cheap occasionally too.

I had read that many Starbucks don't accept these, so I contacted them and received the following reply -
"Thank you for contacting Starbucks Coffee Company.
Our franchised stores to accept these as well as select licencees. The only licencees in your area that won't accept these are Welcome Break and Village Hotels.
The closest store to you to accept these are Bradford - Centenary Square,Bradford Rooley Road, Rochdale- Manchester New Rd, Mirfield A62 Leeds Rd, Cleckheaton Whitehall Road A58, Leeds Broadway, Birstall Business Pk Bankwood Way, Leeds - White Rose Drive Thru.
If there is anything we can do to further assist, don't hesitate to let us know."
Usually ask if I can pay the difference and go for a large coffee, works most times and they don't charge you.
Aldi are doing excellent coffee beans (Italian blend is my favourite of the three variants) for £1.89/200g I guess if you get a free coffee with the Starbucks deal that's OK, but otherwise it's cold for me.

Ta for that!.... rest assured my finger has had a good telling off!
Thanks OP! I HOPE this coffee will give me an alternative to Lavazza... everything else I've tried has fallen short.

It must depend on your area and whether the franchised stores decide to take part.

Reply from Starbucks' Twitter account:
Hi M, the stores in Kent that will honour this are Chatham The Quay, Sittingbourne High Street, Deal High Street, Sainsbury's Canterbury.
We don't have a list to hand at this time.
Unfortunately, a lot of the stores in your area are owned by a franchisee named Cobra, who have chosen not to take part in this offer.
These almost put me off using my grinder again when I first bought it. Over roasted and very oily, not to mention months old. Buying freshly roasted beans made a world of difference, a bit dearer but well worth it if you're going to the effort of grinding your own coffee.
inflation kicks in. The deal for this used to be 2.50 for a couple of years

Just bought my first bean to cup and signed up for freshly roasted beans with thecoffeefactory, seams the price for a lot of these freshly roasted beans delivered to your door is around £7 per 250g, you found a place that sells freshly roasted for much less ? I’ll be experimenting myself with ALDI, Illy, lavazza beans etc and seeing if the price difference is with it compared to freshly roasted.

Really, I've never seen it in my waitrose (or anywhere else) below £2.50.....

Starbucks will give you Soy (if you're not a cow juice sort of person) FOC as well.

This is quite a dark roast, ideal for espresso. I actually mix it with the darker Union but as with most things, it's all down to personal taste.

Also a good crema is a good indication of fresh quality .
They've had that offer on the bags since 2016. Do you people stumble around in a trance?

£7 is about right though we do have some local roasters where I can call in and get it a little cheaper. I personally think it's worth it but not all the time as I will use supermarket brands as well for the sake of economy - we go through a lot of coffee.

I highly recommend Coffee Compass for fresh roasted beans. Most beans are £9 per 500g or you can choose three 500g bags from their espresso range for £23 (£7.66 per bag) plus postage. The websites a bit slow but postage is really quick with the beans roasted on or very near the date of purchase. Every coffee I've tried from there have been great!.. Store bought beans have nothing on fresh roasted.

Really useful info and interested in where’s best to keep coffee (beans and ground). I thought sealed in a bag in the freezer was best followed by fridge (both are very dry in an absolute humidity measurement as 100% rh at 4°C is less than 40% rh at 20°C). What’s the general consensus?
