    Certainly I've never struggled to find it, unless you've been in a store straight after me as I sometimes clear the display

    They used to have 2 x bags for 5.00 offers, then I did clear the shelves, but not seen that in awhile. It scored very well in a Which report a few years ago.

    Tim, They are good and fairly quick, but with me anyway I got no email confirmation which annoyed me a bit.. I mean surely that can be the easiest of things to set up. Anyway their prices are good for great coffee and big boxes too. 400 gm gold packets inside big cardboard boxes. Very impressed

    Do you mean no confirmation of your order - or any sort of invoice?

    I paid via paypal so got conformation of transaction from them but not from Tank. no idea why.. Climpson send me emails. Still, not complaining too much as its good value and very nice. At least with paypal, if anything goes wrong you get your money back

    Interesting and unusual in these days of automated technology.

    I've been poking around the site and see they only roast African beans, I'm more a South American arabica lover, Colombia, Peru and Brazil especially. Funnily enough I'm seeing one of my favourite artists tonight (Emily Barker) and she's a coffee lover, so much so she's commissioned a roast for her UK tour. Her latest album is called 'Sweet Kind of Blue' and she has bags of 'Sweet Kind of Brew' for sale from Monsoon Estates, pretty neat. She's done it before on her Dear River tour and sold out after 3 shows!

    Em's a Yirgacheffe girl, so you'd get on. A cool idea, buying freshly roasted beans at a gig - if you like good coffee that is



    Anything in particular you would recommend from Tank Coffee?

    Yeah, I'm an Africa lover.. love their beans lightly roasted. They do a taster pack of 4* 80gm. Im impressed so far with africa espresso and the kickstart espresso. bot can be used in other ways well too. Try climpsons coffee in london they are good although expensive. do some nice S American ones
