    No, they were in last year but were all gone by time I got through to the big one in Livingston. Should be nice enough Really dark roasted can be a bit more bitter but African beans are usually decent

    the chopper type blade in the grinder can also make the coffee a little bitter due to burning it as it chops it, but trial and error is the best way. you could send some to Kevin for him to grind for you

    Cool. I also got some of these as an alternative, which I suspect may be smoother tasting:

    ...just to see what they're like, in terms of 'bean per buck'!

    Lidl's electrical stuff is German made, so usually belies its price tag, punching well above its weight, so let's see what this combo is made of... Hopefully I can bag them tomorrow before the shops sell out...!

    Full report to come on their efficacy, if I can nab them, so stay tuned

    Marco.
    That grinder will be like playing an LP with a rusty nail....
    It will get the job done, but the results will be less than good.

    Don't cheap out on the grinder. It's more important than the machine at budget levels.
