Coffee Beans for Coffee Machine.

OK, so I have this machine now, which grinds from bean. I like my coffee, but I'm none too clued up on bean types. I've tried a few from Sainsburys which have ranged from ok to quite nice.
Are there any coffee aficionados here who can point me in the right direction?

I've googled this so far http://www.amazon.co.uk/Brown-Bear-M...n+coffee+beans

BTW, feel free to take the piss.

Take a wander into Tesco/Asda etc and have a look. Give the pack a squeeze, there's a pinhole vent so you'll be able to smell them. The big supermarkets seem to stock a fair few varieties to start you off.

I'm quite a fan of Percol Black and Beyond.

Erm... prawn references aside <snigger> I think it is. It's rather a high caffeine content

In any case, ignore any guides on 'daytime, evening etc' and go see what you like the smell of. I've been grinding my own and using a gas hob top percolator for years.

If you like

It is actually quite nice looking for decent beans. Taylors of Harrogate Lazy Sunday got opened earlier. Very very nice.

Taylors in the thang at present. Very nice, but I'm giving it two grindings for a decent large strong.

Try the Percol Black then-and don't do more than one grinding. I'll kickstart you nicely.
