Does this keep for a year?

Does this keep for a year?


in my experience they usually have at least a best before of 12 months
How is this being voted cold?

227g bags are £3.75 in Morrisons (2 for £6), so that works out at £12 for just under a Kg. Buying 3Kg from Morrisons would mean buying 13 227g bags (2.95Kg), working out at at least £39.75!

If anyone drinks as much coffee as my other half, 3Kg isn't that much!

Because it’s a silly amount of coffee and it’s better to buy smaller amounts more frequently, freshly roasted.
How does Taylors coffee strength work?
Most other makes have a scale of 1 to 5 but Taylor's goes into double figures and I'm not sure what is a weak coffee and what is a more espresso type with theirs ?

It's 3 x 1Kg bags, not a 3Kg bag (I agree that would be a silly amount), a 1Kg bag is fine to use if you have a household who regularly drink freshly ground coffee. We seal our opened bags either with a clip or in a tupperware box (and trapping the open end of the bag in the lid).

We've never had an issue with freshness.

I agree that if you don't drink a lot of coffee or have a small household, smaller bags may be a good idea, but this is still a better deal.

If a 1Kg bag was a "silly amount", why do so many company sell 1Kg bags?

We get through about 100g a day so this would last me about a month.
We get through 1kg every 2 weeks, 6 -10 espressos a day

Fair comment, it depends on your household I guess. It’s a good price for the amount of beans so hot if you like them and will get through them quick enough.

I personally prefer freshly roasted, you really can tell the difference but you pay for it.
Good price, really decent coffee.

Switched to this sometime ago, stocked up in case of issues importing otherwise I'd have bought a couple of boxes.

Loads cheaper than pods of any description, expensive machine to buy (delonghi bean to cup) but overall these beans & a decent machine makes a good start to the day.

Pop them in the freezer if you've got space.

We get through a kg+ per month, small price to pay for decent coffee.

They'd have a fit at how much personal stock of this I carry...think I'm good till November possibly beyond.
I have never seen this red bag espresso variety of Taylor's beans in any of the supermarkets beside their other product lines. Also they are not on Taylors website. So I would not order this much unless I had more information. Nothing worse than being stuck with a sack load of horrible bitter beans.

This is a lot of old, burnt, bad quality beans for the money.

Prefer to spend more on fresh, well roasted, good quality beans.

These are in the supermarkets, usually in smaller packs.

These arent bitter, in my opinion.

Grinding coffee beans changes how the flavor compounds dissolve, which means that if it's too coarsely ground you risk under-extraction, and in turn a flat or perhaps a sour tasting coffee. But if they're too finely ground, you risk an over-extracted, bitter coffee so try adjusting the grind to a more coarse grind on your machine to reduce/eliminate the bitterness

Experience of telling a good coffee bean from a bad one. This is supermarket level commodity coffee at the end of the day. Taylors coffee is nothing special and anyone prepared to spend so much on coffee in one go surely wants something better? There are alarm bells that coffee like this always rings; origin info of the blend is vague, so quality of beans won't be good, whether they say it's 100% Arabica or not. It's got a number 5 level; that is utterly meaningless. It's described as dark and powerful under that; again utterly meaningless. It's marketing talk made to make you think that when you taste the overpowering bitter taste of beans that have been so far burned to hide how bad they really taste, you will equate that with power and a higher caffeine level. It's complete rubbish and it's how they sell terrible coffee marketed as 'strong' coffee (usually dirt cheap Robusta variety). Beans like this are good for one thing in my opinion - seasoning grinders, run one bag through a new grinder and then put the grinds straight in the compost.

From my experience, this is one of the best coffee beans on the market, having tried plenty of others.

But I accept that my opinion, like my taste buds are mine.

I tried this coffee with an open mind, & liked it. I'm not dismissing something without having tried it.

You are entitled to your opinion, but to be dismissive of a product without having tried it reminds me of a petulant child who has tried very little in life.

Have a fabulous day.

You're entitled to your opinion also. You're comparing an overly processed, commodity product with fresh, small batch speciality product from the same source crop. Whatever your experience with this particular coffee, it's simply not as good as a half decent fresh, well considered roast.

Really no need to take these things so personally.

Quick one since you seem to know a bit. I bought some beans from Amazon (Prime delivery next day) about two/three weeks ago. Will they be fine as fresh as not opened the bag at all?
