Best coffee beans you could find in a supermarket

published

So good that I am actually hesitating to let people know about it! I have been buying it for years now, waiting to be on sale for 40-50% off. Brunt taste: from extracting too long. Crema: it is either your machine of the grinding. Do not blame the beans!

Purchased in February 2021 for $19.00.

Burnt taste.

Disappointed, tasted very burnt, and had to mix with other beans to get a drinkable cup of coffee.

Don't listen to idiots. This is 1 of the best.

published

I've been drinking and making espresso coffee most of my life so listen to me, not the other idiots here. This is 1 of the finest coffees on the market. Some people just don't know how to grind or filter it. If you're not getting pressure through your espresso. You need a finer grind or use a duel filter basket. If you can't get crema. You need a duel filter basket. Just unexperience plain and simple. If you're going to write a negative review on 1 of the best coffees. Make sure you know your stuff. This comes just behind Vittoria Oro which is by far the best.

Purchased in December 2021 at Woolworths for $9.50.

No good

published

Very hard to yet a good crema. you need to put your grinder on the the finest setting and still then the shot isn't that good never again would I buy mountain grown Victoria coffee beans

Purchased in September 2021 at Woolworths.

Very poor quality

published

Same problem as everyone else. Can not get enough pressure no matter how fine I grind or how hard I tamo. Definitely shows how important fresh beans are. Buy local.

Excellent coffee if you like a smooth and strong flavour

published

My wife loves this coffee. Of course, you must grind to talc. powder like fineness to get your preferred, perfect pressure profile. Always buy at $15 special with 2-3 week since roast (best before less 12 months).
Mix with Aldi or your own home roast to tone down the intensity, if you like.

Purchased for $15.00.

Vittoria Mountain Grown Nesspresso Compatible Capsules

published

I would NOT recommend anyone purchasing Vittoria Nespresso compatible capsules.

This is the first time I purchased these capsules which are marked Nespresso Compatible but they are definitely not compatible.

The shape of the capsules is different and slightly shorter than Nespresso brand and so they do not work. Like other people have reported the foil seals can not be pierced by the coffee machine and so no water passes through.

When I contacted the company they said that they would be happy to post me a a prepaid mailer to return the capsules not used. After again contacting them they effectively said not our problem return them to the place of purchase.

Purchased in December 2021.

Steer Clear

published

Tried this and another Vittoria product on a new espresso machine we bought just before Christmas. Couldn't get crema and the taste was ordinary. Persevered for a month and then contact the machine manufacturer looking to return it as I thought I had a dud. When I told them what beans I was using, they asked me to get freshly roasted beans as these supermarket mass produced ones have potentially been in storage for over a year and lost the majority of the oil hence no crema/poor flavour. First coffee with freshly roasted beans and what a difference. Will not use Vittoria again.

Purchased in January 2021 at Woolworths for $15.00.

Buyer beware: Forign body in beams

published

I had a forign object in my coffee beans which killed by $500 grinder. Coffee drinkers beware!! Besides tasting like muddy water, these coffee beans broke my grinder beyond repair!! Even worse, I contacted vittoria about this and they advised me that the particle “could not have come from their beans packet’!!
I am 110% sure that the partle did!! following an email correspondence with vittoria coffee, they advised me that there manufacturing process was fauless and they were not doing anything about it to ensure the same issue does not happen to someone else!!
Coffee drinkers, think twice before putting these beans through you expensive grinders!! The coffee is poor quality and the customer service is extremely poor

Stale

published

I have the beans and they produce the worst coffee ever. In my breville oracle there is no crema. Within 10 seconds i nilly have a double shot of coffee. What is produced tastes burnt and bitter. The most exciting part of this coffee is that finally nilly out of it. I am a coffee lover and no longer look forward to my morning coffee. The worst part is these beans are one of the more expensive beans in the supermarket. I will go back to buying cheaper beans that are higher quality.

Taste Burnt

published

For use in my French Press and my Moka pot. Taste pretty burnt to me, tried different grinds and brew times but mostly comes out yuck. Won't be buying again.

Waste of money - capsules don't work - No after sales service

published

Under-extracted every time

published

Same as what everyone else is saying. Doesn't matter how fine I grind, how much I cram into the basket, how hard I tamp.. I get full flow before pre-infusion is finished and a double shot poured in about 10 seconds. Sunbeam grinder/Dual Boiler and that combo has made thousands of good coffees over the years.
Did some research and they're probably just stale: https://coffeesnobs.com.au/brewing-equipment-midrange-500-1500/33010-help-bes900-shot-running-fast-even-finest.html
Ironically the Coles/Woolworths home brand beans are generally ok and cheaper.

Under pressure issue similar to other reports

published

Bought this on special from Woolworths and had under pressure problem similar to other reports. I use a Breville BES870 and I have set the grinder to fine and tamp coffee firmly, but I still can't get enough pressure. Has anyone got any luck in this?

Update, after I set the grind size to finest, and tamp the coffee very firmly, I can get good pressure. The coffee comes out very nicely with lots of crema, and it tastes very good. I will give this a 3.5 stars now.

Disappointed, pressure issue as others have reported

published

Hi bought them on specials so thought I'd give them a go. Thre pressure issue others reported I thought might have been based on basic machinery, with a highly adjustable grinder and decent machine I struggled to get pressure and just decided to ignore what the machine was telling me. No pressure also meant poor crema. Look the flavour was worth 1 extra star, but not great. Have put my ove fave in now and back in business.

Better than basic Vittoria brand

published

I find it is stronger than the otdinary Vittoria coffee. Lasts longer as I don't have to adjust to stronger.

Low pressure issue

published

Could not get enough pressure using these beans in my Breville Barista coffee machine. Tried maximum finest grind and tampering as firmly as I could but to no avail. Thought the machine was faulty until I tried another brand of beans and got a perfect cup of coffee.

Something wrong with the beans?

published

Something wrong with the beans and had to get a refund. Not getting any pressure on the expresso machine and brew come out too quick and watery. Tried other beans and they were perfect.

Great strong coffee with bold flavor

published

It produces great coffee and tastes precisely as described on the cover "strong coffee with slightly spicy after taste". One suggestion try not to use very hot milk as that degrades the taste and makes it more bitter. Otherwise great coffee with strong flavor and nice aroma

Smooth, rich and excellent golden crema

published

We also have a Jura machine, it grinds these beans to perfection. Smooth, never bitter and decadent. Rich full mouth taste, no nasty after taste. Amazing with a dash of cream. Cannot fault this and always my go to.

1 heaped tablespoon per cup (250 mL boiling water). Stir well then plunge.

Hyperion

Yes but i would personally not use it for that...drip or espresso or italian style stove top is better suited for this grind...

Personally if you use a plunger/frenxh press buy the beans and grind yourself.of you have a burr grinder

I have recently purchased the Vitoria mountain grown coffee beans. I sore it in a canister & keep it in the refridgerator.Is this the best way to store the coffee beans or should i keep it in the pantry rather than the fridgerator.

Hope to hear from you.

Hi and many apologies for over looking your question for so long. I personally have found for (despite what some will advise) longer storing in air-tight container the fridge to be the best solution. It maintained a steady cool temperature to avoid the beans from sweating and deteriorating.
