I found Dark Woods Coffee through (of all places) Liberty of London. Liberty has a small groceries section in their store near Carnaby Street and Dark Woods is sold under the Liberty name. As a result I decided to buy directly, picking the Crow Tree I had before and a new choice – Under Milk Wood. As a blend this is a great coffee and does what it promises if you like milk in your drink.
It’s interesting that the UK-based coffee roasters aren’t that obvious to find, even though they invariably do have websites and online shops. The coffee I’ve purchased in the UK is easily as good as anywhere else, so there is plenty of skill around in achieving effective roasting.
I’m always on the lookout for new retailers, so if you know of any good ones, then share the love!
