    • 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.

            • 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 :-)

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                            Would it be a good idea to share good practice on novel / effective methods for waste reduction, recycling and other process innovations in coffee roasting?

                            • 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
