I love coffee.
where I get my coffee from
One of the most important things about enjoying and appreciating good coffee without disturbance, is making sure that you have a ready supply of the bean. Here are the places where I get my coffee from.
Although admittedly I’ve not ordered from their website yet, I did get some of their Organic Columbia Cafe Equidad from Whole Foods Market, Cheltenham just after Christmas 2012, and really enjoyed it. A good, coffee-drinking, friend of mine bought me the Organic Mini Tin Gift Set as a present a while back, and that’s what got me into Grumpy Mule in the first place. These guys are only up the road from us, in West Yorkshire… so I think a tour may be on the cards soon!
I’ve not actually tried any of their coffees yet, but I will be ordering their Espresso Starter Pack soon, and I will report back here. Has Bean is based in Stafford, and is the brainchild of Stephen Leighton who also created the Coffee 101 website that I have just this second signed up to.
More Than Coffee
I bought a veritable bucket-load of coffee from this page back in 2012. I can’t remember exactly what I bought as they have no order history option on their website… but I think it was Abyssinian, Kenya Peaberry, Monsoon Malabar, Mysore, and one other. This was a real eye-opener for me as all of the coffees had such a wide and varied flavour, texture, and after-taste. I highly recommend these guys as they roast on demand for delivery. They’re based in Fleet, Hampshire… very close to where I lived the most formative years of my life.
Taylors of Harrogate
Ahh, the staple of my coffee-drinking life. Safety, in sealed bags. When I’m not treating myself to something special, I always end up back at Taylors. Available at most supermarkets here in the UK. My favourites from their range are Lazy Sunday and Rich Italian. Oh, and the wife likes their Decaffeinated Breakfast Tea! They are also the guys behind the only tea that I will drink. I am, of course, referring to Yorkshire Tea! Taylors of Harrogate are based in – shock horror – Harrogate in North Yorkshire.
