Reviewer: (2020) Allan from Bedfordshire   5 Stars

Wonderful coffee for Italian espresso. If you're fed up of endless hipsters selling you supposedly dark, but actually still too lightly roasted beans, that result in an unpleasant sour espresso, then this is the product to buy. Great service and no hipster nonsense telling you what you should be drinking.



Reviewer: (2020) Roger from Cambridgeshire   5 Stars

Consistent Italian espresso flavour. Good value quick delivery. The coffee I always buy for my bean to cup machine.



Reviewer: (2020) Mike from Flintshire   5 Stars

Excellent range of coffee's. Very competitive prices. Fast delivery. That's why I buy 90% of my coffee. From "The Love of Coffee" The other 10%, " Shock, Horror" is ground coffee.



Reviewer: (2020) Toni from UK   5 Stars

The coffees I chose arrived really quickly and while we definitely prefer some more than others, I love these products purely for the fact that it makes it fun trying new coffees and it's a great way to find something you may like!



Reviewer: (2019) Alison from Derbyshire   5 Stars

Perfect coffee for me every time - and delivery is usually quick - no complaints.



Reviewer: (2019) Malgorzata from West Yorkshire   5 Stars

Very quick delivery. I cant tell if they taste well because it is a gift but the smell from package was pleasing. Thank you.



Reviewer: (2019) Andrew from Argyll   5 Stars

Next day delivery, product always as described. A+



Reviewer: (2019) Sandy from Weymouth   5 Stars

Fabulous coffee. Makes the perfect cup. We use the beans which our machine grinds to the exact consistency we love. We were beginning to despair of finding a good quality, strong organic coffee bean until we came across 'The Love of Coffee'. Thank you.



Reviewer: (2018) Roger from Cambridgeshire   5 Stars

Prompt delivery good coffee.



Reviewer: (2018) Sue from Scotland   5 Stars

Super easy to order, very quick delivery and good quality coffee! I don't buy coffee from anywhere else.



Reviewer: (2017) John from West Hampstead   4 Stars

Tried this as part of a sample of four - what an amazing taste. Now my favourite coffee! Really pleased with my order and so good to be able to buy different types of ground. No more powdery coffee from the cafetiere!



Reviewer: (2017) John from Skelmersdale   5 Stars

We have been ordering from tloc for around 6 months now. Excellent quality coffee and quick delivery every time.



Reviewer: (2017) Sally from Somerset   5 Stars

Thank you for prompt service, and the coffee was great.



Reviewer: (2017) Shane from Surrey   5 Stars

Great Coffee and great service.



Reviewer: (2017) Pete from Preston   5 Stars

Good quality coffee, promptly delivered. I have returned numerous times to reorder. Goes well with my espresso coffee machine.



Reviewer: (2016) Duncan from Suffolk   3 Stars

Only a 3* because I had to leave electric ring on for a long time in order to get my percolator to function. The coffee eventually was very nice but each cup turned out to be rather expensive. Think I'll get a dedicated electric powered machine to use.



Reviewer: (2016) Monica from London   5 Stars

My order of 6 coffees arrived, sooner than expected! I've not even opened one yet, as I'm finishing off the beans that I still had, although I'm very tempted to 'break open' one or two anyway! I'm delighted to have found you, although the temptation to try everything is enormous!! So far so great, thanks.



Reviewer: (2016) Christopher from Devon   5 Stars

Great coffee which ever you choose, quick delivery great service and advice, they are also quick to resolve any problems you may have.



Reviewer: (2016) David from Llandudno   5 Stars

Great range, easy purchase, prompt arrival.



Reviewer: (2016) James from Carlisle   5 Stars

The quality of product was excellent and the speed of dispatch was electric. Very good all round.



Reviewer: (2016) Peter from South Wales   5 Stars

Have ordered and tried a variety of beans and found Dark Italian Blend to our taste. Indian Monsoon Malabar extra strong extraordinary. Choice of beans and service excellent.



Reviewer: (2016) Robin from Rugby, Warwickshire   4 Stars

Another excellent blend that is well worth trying and can be savoured at any time of day!



Reviewer: (2016) Frank from Conwy   5 Stars

Excellent service. Fast delivery and great products.



Reviewer: (2016) Michael from Flintshire   5 Stars

After spending £1,500 on a coffee machine I naturally wanted freshly roasted beans to get the best results. Based upon past experience, 'The Love of Coffee' meets my criteria in terms of product range and service.



Reviewer: (2016) John from North Yorkshire   5 Stars

Very quick delivery. Lovely coffee. Will be reordering soon.



Reviewer: (2016) Claire from Salisbury   5 Stars

Coffee beans arrived promptly. This was our first order and we were very impressed. Have recently bought a bean to cup espresso maker and wanted freshly roasted beans, not supermarket ones! Will definitely be purchasing more, and looking forward to trying different flavours!



Reviewer: (2016) Gerald from Norfolk   5 Stars

This was my first purchase in my search for an acceptable cup of coffee at home. The advice I received was invaluable, friendly, knowledgeable and sympathetic. We tried them both and each was excellent. I will certainly return for more.



Reviewer: (2016) Rachel from Hertfordshire   5 Stars

Brilliant coffee and a fast delivery in time for Christmas, would highly recommend and will be ordering again soon!

Reviewer: (2015) Roz from St. Albans   5 Stars

I ordered three unique coffees as part of a birthday present for my brother, a real coffee connoisseur (according to him)! The service was incredibly swift and I was extremely pleased with my purchase.



Reviewer: (2015) Roger from Plymouth   5 Stars

My first order of just Espresso ground did not last as long as I hoped it would. I have too many friends who also like GOOD coffee. My latest order has been funded by them but, we'll probably have more wonderful Good Coffee Appreciation Parties. Who needs ALCOHOL?



Reviewer: (2015) George from Slough   5 Stars

The coffee turned up the next day. I am still working my way through the four different blends which are great so far.



Reviewer: (2015) Peter from Leigh on Sea   5 Stars

I have recently purchases a bean to cup coffee machine and wanted to try different beans hence my order to the love of coffee. I purchased three different kinds of beans which arrived very quickly. I have only tried one as yet but that is proving to be very good. I would definitely order again. So far my dealings with the love of coffee has been excellent.



Reviewer: (2015) Michele from London   5 Stars

A very special thank you for your help and excellent customer service, and also for the very nice coffee that you sell.



Reviewer: (2015) Joe from Cornwall   5 Stars

Had to search around for an organic dark roast that wasn't blended with tangy beans. This was not disappointing very strong smooth tasting coffee works well in the Magnifica and a good price. This is the coffee I will be sticking with for some time. Total satisfaction. Thank You.



Reviewer: (2015) Christine from Berkhamsted   5 Stars

The order arrived promptly and was well packaged. Prompt efficient service. Thank you.



Reviewer: (2015) Francesca from Sandhurst, Berkshire   5 Stars

I ordered 3 different coffee beans and was suitably impressed with the prompt delivery and the great tasting coffee - will be ordering again - thank you!



Reviewer: (2015) Michele from London   5 Stars

Coffee is very nice, the delivery was very fast. All was good! Thank you.



Reviewer: (2014) Jerry from Surrey   5 Stars

Great product, really good flavour, the reason I buy it from 'The Love of Coffee' is the consistency of the product. I get a great coffee every time.



Reviewer: (2014) Maureen Lu from Liverpool   5 Stars

Coffee roasting is very good, gracefully scent.



Reviewer: (2014) Janet from Bramley   5 Stars

Very quick delivery and this is excellent coffee. Haven't tried second one yet but I'm confident it will be great. Will definitely reorder from The Love of Coffee.



Reviewer: (2014) Aaron from Edinburgh   4 Stars

Only just getting into the coffee, so far so good.



Reviewer: (2014) Larry from Gloucester   5 Stars

Great service, product arrived in timely fashion and tastes great.



Reviewer: (2014) George from Belfast   5 Stars

I purchased 4 coffees from you Mocha Java Blend, Mountain Blend, Directors Blend and Dark Italian. The only one that wasn't to our liking was the Mocha Java Blend, the reason being that we only drink Black Coffee. It has taken a while to reply to you, we had Coffees open and they had to be used. I will be buying some more Dark Italian from you when I get back from Holiday, it was great Coffee.



Reviewer: (2013) Dean from Falmouth   5 Stars

I use this coffee in a mocha pot for my morning, full strength, "wake me up" cup of coffee and it is excellent. I like strong coffee, and this is defiantly strong when made in a mocha pot. I couldn't tell you what it's like when made using other methods as I've not tried it.



Reviewer: (2013) Colin from Liverpool   5 Stars

I love this coffee,nice and strong with no hint of bitterness. My regular brew was Illy Dark Roast but from now on I'll be using this Italian blend on a regular basis.
