Excellent coffee, easily ordered from the website incorporating a wide variety of beans from across the globe and offered either whole or ground to your requirements. Haven’t bought coffee any other way since stumbling upon the website.

First time customer of The Love Of Coffee. I ordered a sample selection of several coffees and am trying them to see what, if any, suits. Although I can't review any of the selection as yet, I can give 4 stars for the service. Many thanks.

Thanks TLOC. Received my 4 bag selection plus a Decaf after roasting and i have now tried the Old Java and Kenyan Elephant Ears. Really enjoyed trying different coffee’s and settings. Looking forward to trying the others. I will be back for more.

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!

I purchased a variety of Coffee beans as a birthday gift for my hard to buy for elder son. Extremely fast delivery with reasonable charge. He is more than delighted with them. I get regular photos of the different beans and a review...so far he has enjoyed all of them!
