    "All beans are individually roasted" - wow. Seriously, though seems very cheap if the coffee is half ok.

      Just put it on a conveyer belt and put it through the roaster Id say… Like you would with pizza… Lol that way technically they are individually roasted on the tray

      With cigarette lighters.

      Have you tried Aldi’s?

        I prefer them - currently many hours from the closest Aldi though so I gotta take what I can get around here

        Aldi's Peru beans are my current favourite!

        •  

          Colombia are awesome too!

        •  

          Anyone tried the Nicaraguan?? My favourite is the Brazilian

    Any idea how fresh roasted they are?

      For something like this I would assume ‘not very’.

      They taste ok and smell good. I've tried those "freshly roasted" from those twice the price and honestly, it doesn't really scream out anything special.

        If you have tried decent freshly roasted coffee and not noticed a difference then I think I envy you. As far as supermarket coffee goes grinders is fine, but there is a very noticeable difference with a decent fresh roasted coffee.

      Update: Package received very fast.
      Coffee packaging is marked "Best Before 01/2023" and "Batch No: 2050 07:38"
      - I am guessing roast date is Jan-Feb 2021.

      Anyhow I will grind some up a touch finer and see how it goes.

        Made some coffee this morning, acceptable result.

    Better than Aldi dark roast? Also interested in how fresh they are. At Aldi can usually get within 1 month.

      Do Aldi’s have dates on them now?

      • +11 votes

        Look at the best before date. There is another number there. Reverse the number. That is the roast date.

        •  

          Cheers 👍🏼

    •  

      These have a mild taste. Perfect for milky coffees with chocolate notes and sweetness. Great as a backup.

    • +1 vote

      I remember reading somewhere the darker roasts go stale quicker than the lighter roasts. So I tend to go for the medium roast.

    •  

      The expiration date printed on the pack is 2 years after the roast date. Sometimes you get lucky and can find some in the supermarket that are less than a month old. These are really good then. Otherwise I wouldn't bother.

      Just for reference I recently saw these on special at coles - 2 for $20.

    These are not for the coffee connoisseur.

    • +6 votes

      By connoisseur, do you mean slightly OCD and more interested in the idea of coffee than personal taste?

      • +5 votes

        The entire coffee scene is predicated on this. According to the experts (aka YouTubers) I need 3 PHDs and shit ton of spare time to make a good coffee.

      •  

        I mean these tasted old/"stale" and lacked interesting flavour and complexity when I tried, aldi beans are better, but still I prefer the freshly roasted exotic stuff which is unfortunately pricey, but not overly so given how much enjoyment it gives my taste buds.

        • +1 vote

          Personal taste perhaps? I roast beans and have quite a few "exotic" varieties. These are an ok substitute when I run out or need to allow a batch to rest a few days. "Old/stale" taste could also be due to not adjusting grind and tamp technique to the beans. Or you may just not like their flavour, which has nothing to do with quality.

        No the grinder loyalty app. Grindr on app store. You won't be disappointed

  •  

    The Crema blend is our go to. Produces an excellent brew.

    Also tried organic and was disappointed.

    •  

      Funny I usually stay away from those organic coffee. It tastes like plain vegetables.

      •  

        I haven't tried any other brand of organic so I can't comment. But the grinders one seemed excessively dry. You could hear the difference when grinding the beans. Flavour wise, it was sharp with bitter. I tried different grind settings but couldn't them the produce a nice coffee.

        Could have been a freshness issue tbf.

    These were really old beans when I got them from Amazon… Guess they've been sitting in their DCs for ages.

    I find Aldi's are pretty fresh or try your local cafe.

    •  

      Aldi’s dark roast has already been fresh for us.. best value bean around.

      • +2 votes

        Aldi's dark roast can be months old, so definitely worth checking the roast date.

      Yeah, I guess with supermarket beans you can at least check the best before date

        Amazon has a fantastic returns policy…

        •  

          Until you get the dreaded email from them…
          "We have noticed multiple returns from your account in the past 12 months"
          "Please reply to this email and let us know why you returned your orders."

          replied "because it is your policy"

            @DisabledUser58080: Wow didn't know this was a thing….. How many returns did you hit as a percentage of buys if you are happy to share?

              @blues11: I cant say a percentage - I had a run of quality/compatibility issues previously. That said, I was simply following their returns policy.

    Thanks, let me know my coffee is back on special. I got the Harris Very Strong, 6 @ $10 per 1kg in the November 2020 sales. Just on my last bag now.

      Bought this, never tried.

        It's good strong coffee.

        I like to think I'm a realist, I drink coffee for the quick fix and to avoid the withdrawals - damn coffee headaches. For years I tried every version of coffee I could find and they all tasted like licking a donkey's ass (so I've heard), now I accept it's not about the taste but the delivery speed of the fix and the time it lasts until my system purges it. The strong Harris coffee ticks my two top boxes, strength and value.

    i know this will sound like a coffe snob comment but these beans are really bad as are most supermarket style long shelf life beans. you can get good quality and freshly roasted beans from somewhere like brown bag coffee for about the same price and the difference will be huge. plus supporting small australian businesses which i guess is a thing too.

    • +1 vote

      Where can you buy freshly roasted beans for $15/kg? $15/250g usually.

      Also unless you are drinking espresso straight up, quality supermarket beans are fine for milk based drinks.

      I used to feel that freshly roasted beans taste way better, but after switching back to supermarket beans, I can hardly tell the difference. Sure the tasting notes are different, but the supermarket beans are not worse.

      It is probably partly due to I am better at brewing coffee from improved techniques and recipes, compare to an year ago.

            @DDTW: and the fact that they conveniently hide shipping costs in their calculator seems rough

        •  

          Their coffee is $38/kg plus shipping. Or $32/kg if you buy 10kg

              @peppermint420: That's a good price if it's freshly roasted coffee. How is it for freshness and taste.

              You didn't mention the company so thought you implied you bought from Coffee Snobs/Bean Bay.

                @42: this is from a roaster called brown bag coffee. comes delivered usually less than one week after roast date. ive tried the old skool & new skool blends, now going for the one called crowd pleaser, very happy with taste etc so far!

      I agree emphatically, supporting Aussie business where I can afford it trumps any small savings I may get from buying other products. I buy AussieMite from the group in Byron Bay, every year I buy 2 pairs of thermal PJ's for my daughter from Merino Country, etc.

      If I could find a group that grows beans in Australia and sells them for a price I could afford, I'd switch in a heartbeat. I'd even be willing to go $25/kg and reduce my coffee intake to support said Aussie growers, currently $45/kg is the best I found last I looked.

        Where have you found Australian grown beans for $45/kg? I roast and the cheapest Australian grown green beans I have seen are closer to $80/kg.
