I’m a beginner. What should I buy?(r/Coffee)
My simple guide for UK beginners.
Don’t waste your money buying fancy AA single estate small batch beans because you just won’t get the best out of them. You want a reliable and inexpensive blend that doesn’t need a chemistry degree and £300 worth of equipment to achieve good results every time.
I would go as far as to recommend new comers just pick up some decent supermarket branded beans to practice your technique and figure out what type of coffees work for you. The when you become more confident with your method feel free to start exploring more luxury beans.
