    I generally like to use local suppliers who roast regularly in-house, so I know that the beans are as fresh as possible and don't havre to travel far, then stick with them when I find a favourite. In that respect, I use Poblado Coffi, who are based in Snowdonia: https://pobladocoffi.co.uk/

    Their beans really are top notch and they ship worldwide

    Surely though, there must be some good suppliers local to you in France?

    Marco.
    There are a few local places, but the results are not consistent. I think they do a batch, then wait till it is sold before doing another.
    I am still trying to find a decent one that I can count on. Most of my beans come from Bordeaux, from Maxicoffee.

    Coffee Masters are available on Amazon, at a good price, hence the question.
    They get good reviews from a lot of people, so it may be worth a punt.

    Defo worth a punt. I've used them a few times and have no real complaints, but you can do better elsewhere. If you scroll back through the thread you'll see both Grant and Justin recommending coffee suppliers, all of which I suspect will be a level ahead of Coffee Masters.

    Funny thing is that when I used to work in the centre of Bristol, I used to park next to Wogan Coffee.
    I may grab some next time I am back in Bristol.

    No worries... Some beans I'm due to crack open soon, also available from Amazon, are these: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    In terms of the price, remember it's a 1000g bag!

    Gets great reviews, so as soon as I finish my other 'mixer beans', probably in a couple of days, I'll be trying them
