    Nice, mate... Here's this morning's breakfast, and a lovely-tasting cappuccino made from those Columbian beans I bought recently, from a supplier in Snowdonia:





    If you feel like giving some new beans a go mate, I'd thoroughly recommend these Columbian beans: beautifully rich tasting, almost creamy, and with just the right amount of acidity, and the rich taste lingers for ages on the palate - lovely stuff!

    Lol - I posted that at tea time last night!

    Glad to see you're getting a bit of sleep now, rather than being kept awake in the early hours of the morning. And yes, I'd thoroughly recommend those Columbian beans to you, Justers or anyone else who's into top-notch coffee.

    I'm now convinced that South American beans (light brown in colour) are much more to my taste than African beans, which are darker and more bitter. It's almost like a milk vs. dark chocolate thing, with South American beans akin to Swiss milk chocolate, and African, a Bournville bar...

    These Columbians just produce a smooth, rich and very tasty coffee, with none of the 'astringent' quality that generally exists with the African variety, although I may grind in a small amount of those with the Columbian, just to see what kind of mix that produces.

    However, for the moment, the Columbian beans, from Poblado Coffi, are my favs. Local Welsh company too, which ticks an important box for me, and the roasting date printed on the back was only two days before the date I received them, so the beans were super-fresh (and smelled it too, when the bag was opened), which I know is important to you!

    Right, it's time to make some coffee now, and prepare breakfast!

    Marco.

    Cheers, it has a nice crust, lol! It's Polish bread I get from the local Polish supermarket and deli, and superb for making toast.

    Btw, if you like really nice jam and marmalade, as I do, and don't have time to make your own, then I thoroughly recommend the range from Thursday Cottage, which I order online: https://www.thursday-cottage.com/products/jams/

    Interesting story and video on what they're about and how they started here: https://www.thursday-cottage.com/about-us/

    It's the nearest I've tasted to home-made jam, so thick, rich and really fruity. Highly recommended! The Seville Orange marmalade in particular is simply outstanding

    Well there are avid box swappers in hi-fi. I guess I am a fairly continual coffee swapper.

    After 250g of anything I want to swap, really.

    I have noticed supermarket coffee seems to be dropping in volume as a method of putting up the price. So many are doing 200g in beans where it was once 250g. Happening a lot in Waitrose.

    This should make mail order look like a more attractive option for many. Mind you Waitrose is just expensive full stop.

    Glad you like your beans, dude.

    Pain giving you problems again, mate? Nightmare... With yesterday's 'lie in' until 9am, I thought you were back to getting a decent sleep

    Love the idea of a 'coffee swapper' I'm like that with wine. I never buy cases of all the same type, no matter how much I love the wine - always mixed cases, individual bottles, or very occasionally if a wine is knockout good, half a case, otherwise I'd get bored drinking the same stuff.

    However... It's much easier to find wine that I like, than coffee, possibly because I know much more about it, but also because the variety of different wines available is much larger then that of coffee beans, and personally I couldn't be arsed trying all sorts of different beans, running the risk of wasting bags of them because I don't like the taste.

    Therefore, I like to have a 'go to' safe choice of beans, which I know consistently deliver a flavour I like, then dabble occasionally with other (more artisanal) stuff, such as I did with those from Poblado Coffi, and if I like them, add them to my selection
