Can't hold my tongue about this one. Union Roasted deserves better than to be bought preground and it will NOT last month's. If it's preground it will last minutes and by the time it's on its way out of the roasters it's already stale.

And those stupid supermarket strength numbers mean nothing whatsoever.

Buy fresh from their website or stick to crap like Lavazza.

Not meaning to stir the pot (so to speak) but what are your espresso beans of choice? Sometimes (most of the time) it's down to more than the beans......My favorite coffee is from a small place near Guy's Hospital, I bought the beans they use and could not make a coffee anywhere near as good using them at home so went back to Union Revelation Beans.

Website showed the beans on offer too but oos

I prefer Sainsburys own espresso beans.
Sainsbury's own espresso beans are OK
While we’re in here chatting. I recently bought a kilo of these beans direct from union and I just can’t get the strength and crema out of this coffee with my sage oracle. I’ve been left a bit deflated about my first Union coffee experience. Any other suggestions out there?

Even at £5 a pop, Union coffee is a bit of an indulgence for me so half price is great for my little Aeropress (and saves me a fortune in not buying from coffee shops). I use this website for a reason!

I can’t afford the luxury of a bean to cup machine or buying direct from Union’s website which is £15 minimum order and most of the coffee is £7+.

What's ridiculous about it? Even the most premium Lavazza in a supermarket is a poor quality bean usually burned beyond any flavour. There's nothing special about it.
are the beans on discount too?
Which coffee? I have a barista express might be able to help with the settings!

Because you are taking rubbish, there are loads of decent quality lavazza beans.

No way are they like you're describing , I've had a few bags of the super crema, Tierra and Oro before and they were all absolutely fine, none burned at all...

Trashing a whole brand cuz you've had a few bad beans

I bought a decent grinder and use pour over method, buy my beans off eBay cheap , you can get some bargains
I bought the wilfa svart grinder
Just a note that I saw this offer at the end of last week but it also included Rouge WHOLE BEAN (not Revelation whole bean though) but unforch the shelf had been cleared out and just left with the ground version.
I highly recommend Union's Bobolink and Bright Note beans if you see them in Sainsburys or Waitrose - great with milky coffees.

Er, no. I don't take rubbish. Lavazza is mass produced commodity coffee sometimes presented in fancy packaging. Poor quality, old, poorly roasted. But I wouldn't say it was worth getting so upset about.

Says the person lecturing everyone about coffee beans yeah alright then
Worth paying the extra money & buy sainsburys own brand of sumatra coffee,just my thoughts.

There's always someone who feels lectured while drinking their bad coffee, keeps picking an argument and makes out that it's my problem. That's why I usually hold my tongue, like I said, so I don't have to then deal with the oversensitive types who take it all so very personally.

Yours is one irrelevant HUKD person's opinion Vs literally thousands of people that happily drink Lavazza

If they were as bad as you're suggesting then they wouldn't be trading

Correct, it is indeed. So why so upset?

And by that logic, climate change would have been sorted out decades ago and we wouldn't have had a t*ry government for the last ten years. Please. It's called commodity coffee for a reason. That reason being that people are happy to consume rubbish if it's packaged to appeal to them rather than having to make the effort to educate themselves.
Coffee snobs

Oh dear. I'm perfectly comfortable with where I stand on good coffee versus bad. Benefits me no end. Could I ask you to just mute me and I'll mute you and that'll save us both the bother of your disproportionate emotional dependency on the fallacy of Lavazza quality. Cheerio.
Just picked some up at my local Sainsbury's. Checked the dates on them. One was roasted on 16th Jan 2020 and the one next to it was out of date by 3 months. Always worth checking to ensure freshness
