What has happened?

We regularly eat these beans but recently they have not been coming from Kenya and are anything but fine. They really shouldn't stock them if they can't get FINE beans. These were fat, chewy and very unpleasant. Threw them away.

Despite the preview good reviews...

... these have to be the fattest FINE green beans we have ever seen! Also they were stale and stringy so we ended up having to throw them away in the recycling bin. So no veggies with our dinner and a complete waste of our money, and a waste of the energy it took us to cook them... We won't be buying them again. We will instead stick with the far more reliable FROZEN green beans, which constantly prove to be far nicer too ... thumbs down Waitrose

not good at all

Have had these before and they were fine but in the last few weeks they have been awful. They are tough and in the last packet, they had black patches on them so had to throw away most of it.

Terrible

Really awful green beans. Felt woody when snapping off the ends - literally couldn't snap them off by hand and had to cut off. Tried to cook them as usual and had to cook them for twice as long to get something that was vaguely edible, but was still like chewing on twigs. Really chewy, no flavour - just awful.
