These roast up plump with very little chaff. Excellent bean
These are my go to green coffee beans which I roast at home as and when I need a small batch in my electric coffee roaster. Still perfecting the roast but the beans are very forgiving! Redber always dispatch quickly and beans arrive in good time and well packaged. I don't shop anywhere else.
Great thank you .........
Being a novice to roasting coffee, I have found that this is a forgiving bean and results of my capability have been nicely rewarded with an amazing flavour.
Ordered 10kg of these, delivery speed and packaging great however every sample roast I have done with these beans have been really inconsistent in shape, size, colour and quality.
