Ive been sipping coffee all my life; the ones you buy in your normal high street shops. I want a change now. I want to see if there are other coffee/coffee beans out there that has a better taste etc etc



All advices and recommendations would be great from you esteemed coffee snobs/connoisseurs in here!!



As well as what coffee grinding machines do you use?



Thanks again

The most eye-opening coffee experience for me was my introduction to Ethiopian coffees. I've since added some Kenyan and Tanzanian varieties to my mix.

A couple that shouldn't be too hard to find:
Ethiopia: Yirgacheffe Konga
Tanzania: Kilimanjaro

These coffees have fruity and floral notes that are surprising at first. I brew them V60 style, but I'm told they also make wonderful espresso.

Whatever your preference for adding milk and sugar to your coffee, hold off until you've tasted them. Likewise, don't drink them scalding hot -- the flavours are more apparent after they've cooled off a bit.

Listen to @Musicphan he knows what he’s doing and trust me his beans are insanely deliciously. One I still want because of the insane flavor profile I got was the Antigua and I mean damn that was a good bean with a nice fruity flavor profile. I have never experienced that with a Guatemalan bean. Mike is your guy and so is @topher topher’s beans where Insanely delicious too. His Burundi had to be my fav that he sent me and the bloom was just nice to see and very fresh coffee too!
