I really love the taste and smell of fresh ground coffee, especially from Colombia or Costa Rica. There is a richness and distinctive aroma as you open the pack which just sets the taste buds tingling...........Alas, all too often it is simply not practical or best use of time to indulge in real brewed coffee so instant must suffice. Unfortunately in this sector of the beverage market price is often indicative of quality, and premium brand instant coffees almost always taste better than the standard or economy offerings. Having experienced enjoyable cups of Percol Fresh Ground Colombian Coffee I had high expectations from the instant variety: even more so since it was .. Read the complete review

When it comes to the purchase of coffee I have to admit that I'm rather a creature of habit. I love drinking the stuff though I do limit myself cos of all the caffeine not doing me much good as I'm a migraine sufferer but when I do buy a jar of coffee its usually Carte Noir as I just love the quality of it and hate cheap tasting coffee! This Percol one the other week caught my eye as it was on offer in my local Asda store at £2.00 a jar instead of its usual price of about £3.00 a jar. I decided as I'm on a bit of a money saving venture at the moment to give it a try! The Packaging: The jar is made of see-through glass and my jar holds ... Read the complete review

I recently picked this coffee up when it was on special offer for £3, in my local Waitrose, it usually retails for around £3.89 and comes in a 227g jar. The jar is recyclable and has a screw top lid that is easy to use and is secure. The coffee is a Fairtrade instant Arabica coffee, from Columbia, that is made of granules and it has a soft almost Smokey favour that is balanced with toffee and citrus notes. The jar says that the coffee is a '3' in terms of overall strength. The coffee is made of a single source of bean, meaning that it is not blended with other beans from Columbia or elsewhere. To make the coffee all you have to do is add the ... Read the complete review

Trying to find a nice tasting coffee to sit in our work drawer has become some what of a hobby, we have tried luxury French brands, your regulars and even different flavours! However saying that the one that has proven to be the most successful with us is the Percol Fair Trade Coffee. The coffee I am reviewing today is the decaffeinated brand (A slightly healthier option) which is graded at a three (Medium taste in non coffee language), it is full of flavour but light enough that you don't feel you are eating a coffee bean and is made from 100% Arabica beans. The coffee is Fair Trade which means that the tradesmen and women who have grown, picked ... Read the complete review

I am not ashamed to admit that I am totally addicted to coffee. I was bought up on tea however during most of my adult life I buy a jar of coffee every time I do my grocery shopping! I am also a huge fan of Costa and Starbucks love to pop in on a cold winters day to recharge my batteries with caffeine lol. The packaging~ Comes in a rather pleasant looking glass green and jar with pictures of fields. This coffee is freeze dried and is classified as a three rating for strength being that of a medium taste. I am pleased to see that Percol belong to the fair trade group to ensure that all farmers are paid fairly in various parts of the world. ... Read the complete review
