So far out of what I have bought from ICT I have roasted and drank the Burundis, Sidimos, and the Kongas and they were all lovely.

Thanks so much ... had the Sidamo and Konga on my list, just need to work out a few others now. It is a problem when you are spoilt with choice ;-)

It is, so many good ones to try.
Perhaps grab a "mystery bag" too, I did with my last order.

Hi mate, they’re all fresh! Some stand-outs I’ve had have been their Monsooned Robusta and any and all of the Brazilians and the Nicaraguan Santa Rita.

I'm tempted too but I am sitting on a few too many, for me, at the moment plus I just forked put for a new grinder, again, so I am in $$ recovery mode lol.

His prices have gone up a bit too but he is still well priced.

Everyone...thanks for the recommendations. I will be placing an order shortly. Even got a "10% off my first purchase" offer, which is a nice sweetener ;-)

Ok, so I had a hiccup with the discount code but ICT quickly fixed that up and I ended up ordering the following: Yirgacheffe Konga, Sidamo, Columbia Nueva Granada, Peru Organic, Guatemala Soledad, India Monsooned Malabar and Monsooned Robusta. Now that should keep my busy for some time ;-)

Nice selection!! The Peru is a particularly beautiful looking bean and tastes surprisingly good (never been a huge fan of Peruvian in comparison to other regions).

Hi everyone

I'm looking at buying some beans from ICT for the first time. Anyone have any particular beans they have tried and would recommend? I'm looking at trying various ones from Africa, South and Central America, India ... the "works and jerks" as my Dad would say ;-)

Thanks, Dan

I've just polished off 5kg of their Ugandan they had a few months ago. I roasted it with a slowish profile and I got a beautiful low acidity, medium bodied, darkish milk chocolate bomb. I would definately get this one again! That was my first bean from ICT Greenroom and I was impressed with the quality, although I think I'll contact them next time to arrange a different delivery mechanism as I prefer things to go to my PO Box, the local delivery people are a bit hap hazard around here...

Awesome mate! I didn’t get that sort of result with the Ugandan so will give it a go again heeding your advice!

Just put my first order through with ICT!!! Took advantage of the Black Friday free shipping hehe. Alot of beans that I would have wanted were sold out!

Ended up getting:
Mystery bag 4x 200g
3kg Cuba Serrano
3kg Colombia El Mirador
3kg Uganda Bugisu A Grade

I tend to get really bright, fruity, juicy coffees but I really wanted to branch off this time and try some outside-the-usual stuff! I aimed to get something earthy/spicy/herbal, something fruity, and something syrupy and chocolatey.

Can't wait :D

They’re all good! I too have a big order coming and am most excited about the Yirg which sounds awesome! Rai is a great guy to deal with and he has huge knowledge and brilliant product on offer. I hope he’s here for many years to come because I’ve never been happier with my bean supply!

Ah that's really great to hear, says my payment is pending though at the moment and haven't gotten a confirmation email from them, but assuming it must be some PayPal thing hehe.

Ahhh I was sooo very tempted for that Yirg mate... next time! I'll let y'all know how they roast/taste!
