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

What a success story with your first purchase of beans. Old Brown Java can be a love it or hate it coffee as it has a unique taste due to the ageing process. We're thrilled it was a winner for you!
Stay safe and well.

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

Thank you for your review of Jamaica Blue Mountain.
Always consistently good. An amazingly satisfying cup especially roasted and brewed by your own fair hand!

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!

Green Indian 'Tiger Stripes' Blend

After trying several of Coffee Bean Shop's green coffee bean types, roasted at home, I finally settled on this as my favourite. Lovely caramel-like coffee with great crema. Suits me for lattes perfectly, slight hints of chocolate. As stated is very 'chaffy' when roastingRating: [5 of 5 Stars!]By stephen Poole

Our Indian Tiger Stripes does give great crema. With it's small amount of Robusta beans blended with the Arabica beans it also has a nice bit of oomph!
Stay safe and well.

Guatemala El Fogon

I cant imagine ever leaving a poor review for any of the beans bought through this shop. This was a lovely cup. Slightly more bitter than the others I have tried but that's exactly as expected. Again - finished the bag so quickly, it must have been great!Rating: [4 of 5 Stars!]By Rhi Lofthouse

Our Guatemala El Fogon is actually the favourite of our Ollie here. A little stronger in flavour than others but has always proved popular!
Stay safe and well.
Best wishes, the Bean Team
