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!

This is smooth, luxurious, aromatic coffee, not bitter and with a chocolatey flavour. One of the best coffees I have enjoyed.
