Old Brown Java

Captain Smooth sat back and luxuriated in his old, familiar, worn leather armchair and lit his Ogdens' Nut Gone Flake filled meerschaum pipe.
He quickly disappeared in a sweetly spiced, aromatic cloud and thought to himself...
At which point, Rupert was abruptly awoken from his reverie by his wife, loud hailing 'Don't you DARE spill that coffee on our new rug'
He thought... Old Brown Java, truly a pleasant world away.

A very unique tasting coffee with an earthy, musky flavour due to the ageing process and hints of tabacco.
Stay safe and well.
Best wishes, The Bean Team.

Jamaica Blue Mountain

Beautifully smooth and sweet , The aroma of the ground beans was strong (ordered pre-ground for espresso machine) which led me to expect a strong flavour.... i was mistaken the flavour was mild but full of character and body, hands down one of the best coffee's I have tried. the temptation to brew another cup is high so I cant see it lasting me long. You need to try this.Rating: [5 of 5 Stars!]By Daniel Heritage

Guatemala El Fogon

Definitely one of our favourites and a repeated order. We love it for cafetiere brewing, and the low acidity makes a gentle morning drink.Rating: [5 of 5 Stars!]By Piers Anderson

Old Brown Java

This is the first time I bought beans, and my word what a taste. The delivery came the day after ordering, with a hand signed note wishing me well and a chocolate stick to make hot chocolate with. Will be place my next order very soon, as I can't stop drinking this coffee.Rating: [5 of 5 Stars!]By Steve Abbott

Green Jamaica Blue Mountain

Small but perfectly formed, this rounded bean gives great return for gentle treatment. I’d been hoarding the Jamaica Blue Mountain since a 2017 birthday, but Our Trying Times called for splurging my little bag into the roasting pan. Lichen-green at first, it rewards only a casual stir with uniform umber and a sweet nutty scent. First crack, while quietly spoken, is a treat to watch as the beans burst open, but listen out – second crack begins in more of a murmur. Get it straight into the cooling bowl, where that nuttiness is deceptive; once ground, it’s all amazing fruit and a touch of mown grass, and that delicate acidity really sparkles in a long espresso. Subtle enough to drink black, even though I’d usually go for whole milk. I’d look at you very sternly if you sugared it. This coffee is a real special occasion pleasure – life’s too short not to enjoy it.Rating: [5 of 5 Stars!]By Shakira Christodoulou

Guatemala El Fogon

As usual from the Coffee Bean Shop, another high quality coffee. I would describe it as an "all-day" coffee. At first I thought it was merely 'pleasant', but then it grows on you. I usually mix up my own blend from the CBS (Monsoon, Costa Rican, Colombian and Yirgacheffe) for all day drinking - but now I would consider this as a suitable substitute once in a while. (Actually, this is high praise indeed, as it took me years to find the Monsoon blend.)
The Coffee Bean Shop does it again!
