The Coffee Roasters Ideas Factory

What would you like to see on the site?

I have added a few ideas of my own – let me know what you think.
best regards, Lloyd Burgess, Founder of The Coffee Roasters

My idea or suggestion is ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Referral scheme

    A couple of friends have now subscribed based on my recommendation. It would good to see some kind of referral reward scheme e.g. next month free for both.

  2. Letterbox friendly delivery

    I loved my previous subscription with you, but unfortunately had to cancel when moving flat as there was no place to leave deliveries that didn’t fit through a letterbox, and the weekly trips to the post office were too inconvenient. Packaging that fits through letterboxes would be great. I appreciate that this is tricky given your multi roaster system

  3. A search filter for brew style

    Expert opinion /user voting / feedback to assist in a score system for each coffee / brew style, i.e Cold Brew , Aeropress.
    This would help to find coffee suited to a particular / favorite brew method.

  4. extend the list of flavours in the Advanced Filtering and Searching tool

    I know that you have to stop somewhere with this particular filter list, but would it be a good idea to review the list in the light of current usage of descriptors. I have to admit to a personal interest: Rhubarb is one of my key identifiers of a coffee that I'm going to like (who knew?) but it doesn't appear on the filter list, so I can't quickly find those coffees

  6. Can we promote any Green Beans which people may have available?

    I think a question was asked before, but cannot see if any Green Beans are being sold on here. So wondering if we could?
    Thanks.

  7. Order different types of grind at the same time

    Would be nice to be able to order whole beans at the same time as ground coffee. Currently it defaults to your grind preference which works 95% of the time, but if you want to order a different type you have to do it through separate transactions.

  11. Links to buy recommended equipment?

    Maybe include a page with links to items you recommend, such as good Aero-presses, V60's, hand grinders etc.
    These could just be Amazon links or to other pages, for example, if one of your Roasters is selling something.

  12. Offer explorer / tasting packs of decaf beans

    Finding a good decaf ain't easy. It would be great to be able to buy tasting packs with multiple small sample bags of decaf beans in order to try, try and try again :-)
