Best budget setup for good coffee ? Normally just drink espresso instant - got a French press too but don't use it that often. Always fancied a decent machine that would grind & filter but never got around to picking one up, price usually deters me tbh.

I brought some real nice coffee from the maxx a couple months back but forgot the name, was in a blue colourful bag with a humming bird or something on the front. Think it was Jamaican. Anyone know

A few of us used to put a few quid in at my old work and get a subscription from these people

New blends each week, plenty of really decent ones, good way to try stuff other than what's available in the usual supermarkets.

Malik, get yourself a Bialetti moka stove top espresso pot and a ceramic burr coffee grinder. Gotta be ceramic - makes for oh-so-smooth coffee that is perfect for that lazy Sunday morning vibe.

Try Twoday in Bristol - quality roasts and some nice single origin beans and usually have a Cup of Excellence Coffee.

+1. Use a moka pot at home and a cafetiere mug at work.

Square Mile are my favourite roasters
