I'm working my way through the entire range of Whittard coffees, slowly but surely. Christmas always offers some good excuses to stock up and put these on your wish list. I love the packaging - great deep colours in a triangular tube-like box (think toblerone). It is very cunning in it's design as the packs all slot together to form shapes. Quite a naughty way of making you buy them in multiples! Plus they are always doing a buy one for this price or buy three and save blah blah ammount. Well, shall I review it then, or carry on pansying around with asthetics? Righty ho then. I love the fact that this coffee is suitable for my faithful caffetiere but is granular so really doesn't come through that mesh plunger thing. I can drink right to the bottom of my cup without gagging on caffiene silt! I'm not always in the mood for a flavoured coffee at breakfast, as generally, stomachs can only deal with simple food, first thing. Instead, I first tried this as a relaxing pick me up in the evening. It's a cheeky little beverage as it tastes so smooth that it couldn't possibly do anything more than lull you into a snuggly coma. BUT WAIT! WHAT's THIS!? HELLO EVERYONE - WAKEY WAKEY! And we're up! After several nights wide awake and starey eyed, I've gradually adapted to a late morning schedule of coffee drinking to time in for a drop in wakey wakey feeling by early evening. Apart from the price, I genuinely think I would drink this every day. I love the hazelhut version but, I have to say that having tried a few flavours they all taste very similar - slightly nutty and very very smooth, without being too sweet. The recommendation is to transfer the coffee into a jar once opened - but I prefer to keep it clothes-pegged together in the fridge and drink it quickly rather than saving it for 'best' when undoubtably it will have past it's
best! Why have fab packaging if you can't use it?! All in all, I suggest trying one to see if you like flavoured coffee first. If you do, it is probably safe to say, you'll like all of them - so next time, you can just go straight in for the kill and stock up on their three for blah blah offer!
Mouth-watering, warming and crisp enough to give a lovely flavour to this coffee. All purpose ground for any machine.
