I subscribe to Hasbean’s In My Mug weekly coffee (you get 250g a week for £6.50). Coffee is excellent, you get a different single origin each week and taste varies week on week so some weeks I get one that I really like whilst others I get some that are not to my taste but still quality coffee. 250g usually lasts me a week (2 cups a day during week 3 cups a day w/e) Overall I love it.Posted 3 years agosomafunkSubscriber
I’ve tried most of them but i still return to my Local deli who get a fresh supply of Beans from Brodies in Edinburgh each week, i prefer a dark, chocolaty roast so i go for their Mount Etna variety of beans.
At £1.80 for 100g of nice oily beans it’s a damn site cheaper than paying some of the subscription rates as i usually get through 350-400g of beans a week.Posted 3 years agojaymoidMember
Any other clubs?
(Disclosure) My friends runs this – I’ve had a few bags off them and they were pretty damn lovely, especially if they’re brewing up (my cheapo french press doesn’t really do it justice – or maybe I’m not doing it right?!) Anyway I don’t drink enough coffee to justify a fancy gaggia or a subscription though.Posted 3 years agoChrisSMember
I’m getting my beans from A Fresh Bag Of Coffee at the moment, chap who runs it is very helpful and as I’m in Nottingham delivery is free…. and by bike 😆 Last lot of beans I had was ordered at 2pm, then roast and delivered by the time I got home from work the same day 😯 Hard to get fresher than that!Posted 3 years ago
As an aspiring hipster, coiffured, artisanal douchebag I like the idea of a similarly coiffured, hipsterish douchebag posting artisanal coffee to me every month.
Anyone tried one?
Just had an invite from Naked Wines to join Kopi. Seems a bit pricey. So far I have found:
Kopi: £8.95 per month for 250g
Has Bean: £6.50 per month for 250g
James Gourmet Coffee: £90pa, £7.50pm for 250g or £70 for 6m for 500g (£5.80/250g)
Anyone got a subscription? Any other clubs? Is it worth it? It comes out about twice the price of Morrisons beans which I’d still buy, but enjoy “treat” coffee now and then.Posted 3 years agoemszMember
Stoner, you do know you can get this stuff in supermarkets, right?
Actually you could combine the Manly thread and the prejudice thread by driving to the rainforest in that jeep you built making your own beans and bringing them home while hating people who don’t do the samePosted 3 years agoIHNMember
Is coffee the new HiFi?
I wouldn’t say new; there’ve been coffee ‘afficionados’ on here for years. In fact this very chat forum used to be hidden and used only by those afficionados*.
*generally the same people who prefer to shave with instruments popular in 1873, and ride bikes with only one gear. And generally a fixed one at that. I think we all know the type…Posted 3 years agokevin1911Member
We’ve recently gone down the coffee club route too. So far we’ve only tried Pact. Agree it’s expensive though. Although I definitely notice a difference in taste and quality of fresh whole beans compared to the pre-packed stuff in supermarkets.
Can anyone remember the name of the coffee they used to use in the Hub at Glentress? They used to sell the beans in big bags too, but we weren’t (wannabe) snobs back then. I really miss their coffee!Posted 3 years agogeoffjSubscriber

Go and think about what you’ve just said! 😈Posted 3 years agomrblobbySubscriber
MrBlobby you really need to play outside more
Well if I kept changing my beans I’d never have time to play outside 🙂
Also it can easily take half a bag of beans to get the grind right, probably not a great thing if you are getting lots of different beans in small quantities.Posted 3 years agoIAMember
I got my dad a hasbean sub one year for his birthday, he loved it, but mainly as he likes nice coffee and this took the thinking about it out the question, it just ensured there was always nice coffee in the house and it changed occasionally.
Whatever the coffee of the month is from brian wogan is normally pretty good:Posted 3 years agoAlexSubscriber
Stoner- get yourself down to James Gourmet Coffee in Ross and go speak to the man. He’s a top fella and they do all their roasting on site in a tiny industrial unit. You wander in and it smells as I expect Heaven does 😉
He’ll make you loads of coffee with the different beans they use and then pretty much roast them while you wait. I ring in the morning and have fresh beans in the afternoon. Obviously they’ll grind then but as a man clearly au fair with the hepster’s dictionary (http://www.dinosaurgardens.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/12/hepsters.html – go on have a read, it’s gold) you’ll be hand grinding them on the thighs of a local sheep.
it’s also not £9 a throw 😉Posted 3 years ago
