    Very good coffee at a very good price. It's a shame they don't make this in the 1kg that is already grounded.

      A lot of supermarkets used to have grinders mounted in the aisle though can't say I've seen one of these in a while..

      I would like to see some feedback too. I am no Coffee Snob, but freshness of the beans really matter. If you want cheap coffee beans that taste Ok, Aldi is a good option at $12/Kg

        agree Aldi beans taste good and extract well for me on em7000. Keen to see how these beans go.

        Forgetting about the coffee snobs, just thinking about the average home coffee drinker.

        This coffee has a long shelf life, best before date on what I've got on the shelf at the moment is 24th February 2019, and I bought it on 17th January.

        I grind enough each morning for my coffee for the day, about 50g. The ground coffee is kept in an airtight box in a dark cupboard. The diminishing 1kg bag is resealed and kept in an airtight box in a dark cupboard, and - obviously - lasts about 20 days. There is some difference in freshness at the end of the 20 days, but not enough to bother me.

        These Robert Tims beans are very strong flavour. As a real fine grind in an extracion I don't like it, it's basically too much/ too dark. As a coarser grind it isn't too bad, and also not too bad in a plunger. As for a decent crema look elsewhere.

        I find the coles brand fair trade at $12/kg better value. I will have to try the Aldi beans once I'm through these Robert Timms beans.

    Going to go full snob here. I used to buy beans from a roaster and man is the quality WAY WAY above any supermarket swill. I have an almost 10-year Sunbeam Cafe EM6XXX (whatever it's called). Grinding the freshly roasted beans and running thru the machine you get a golden brown pour. I'm yet to get that in any of the supermarket beans. But at $15 for 250 Grams (I'd only buy in small batches), it's just too expensive, so + vote for cheap supermarket beans.

      It's kinda priceless. I mentioned the same thing in my previous comments.

      But in OZB, everything has a price :D

      Lovely!

        Yep that it is. There is a HUGE difference. I simply can't get that consistency from supermarket beans. I always try and get the freshest beans from the shelf (by checking the longest best by date), but it simply doesn't compare.

        Actually, find the $11 Aldi beans quite nice for the price.

    I live close by to a huge Merlo store, (they say it's the headquarters) and they sell fresh roasted beans and such (and on the side menu is coffee lol!) but how would their beans go? Should I go down and try them? I'm interested in tasting fresh but don't want to go far and spend too much.

    Think asking them to buy a sample pack would be wise/not silly?

      once you tasted the fresh beans it will be bit harder to go back to supermarket stuff. Just like most other premium stuff such Cattle Class vs Business Class
