Where can I get fresh coffee?
 
I've just received an aero press coffee maker courtesy of shop and ship and am looking for good fresh coffee.

Does anyone know where I can get fresh ground coffee, preferably bloody good coffee? (starbucks does NOT count as a valid answer)
or even fresh beans that I can grind myself.

For those interested and since there was a thread a wee while ago about nespresso machines etc.

aeropress



This thing is awesome, dead simple and very very quick with bugger all clean up and rubbish to dispose of. Oh and its make a stellar cup of coffee.

That may the case, but his roof terrace could do with a lick of paint.

I've got an Aeropress too. I felt quite a sense of achievement when we finally got through the original set of filters.

Sadly the top of the plunger broke a few weeks ago but it still works, ish.

Raw coffee in Dubai Garden Centre. Good stuff if pricey or for a really good price, check out the coffee in M&S. I get most of mine from there and I'm fussy about my coffee,

If you think of the plunger as looking like a letter T, where the top bar of the T is what you push down on, this is the bit that snapped off. It's glued to the main tube of the plunger and eventually it snapped off.

I got some coffee beans from Nofara Cafe in JLT, I gave them away but at least I remembered where I got them. Not a huge coffee drinker either but I am with Meow try MnS. When we had a filter system we used Lavazza.

Why not just drive 2 streets behind there and visit the Raw coffee shop itself?
