“ Brand: Tesco / Product Type: Coffee Jar „
As well as a new Sugar jar we also invested in a complete set and bought the Tea and Coffee jars as well. Just like the Sugar one the originals had gotten lost in our moving about over the last couple of years and given the very reasonable price tag and the fact had we found the old ones they wouldn't match anyway we completed the set with the cream Tesco Heritage range. At only £2.50 each the three piece set was a bit of a bargain and having already reviewed the Sugar pot I thought what better than to follow it up with the Coffee pot.
The Important Aspect
Unlike with the Sugar neither Jen nor I take Coffee and that results in the contents of this pot being exclusively for any visitors we may have. With our old set we had to keep the Coffee granules in the pot they came in within the designated Coffee container. So the first key aspect for us in a Coffee pot, just like the Sugar was a way of keeping the Coffee fresh, without having to keep it in its original jar. Obviously keeping the aesthetic point of view in the Kitchen was also key but as we were buying a set of Tea, Coffee and Sugar this was already a given.
Fresher Instant Coffee
The Ceramic Heritage Coffee jar has a capacity of 850ml which makes it a decent size for any family and meant it had more than enough capacity for our requirements. As we only have Coffee for visitors we do like to keep some in the house and this offers a stylish, yet practical alternative to having a glass jar of Coffee in the cupboard. The air tight seal on the container keeps the Coffee fresh inside, which ticks all the boxes we required.
Once the Coffee was inside we had plenty of spare capacity and with the sealed lid in place it looks a very decent product. Since we bought the jars in April we haven't even used one full, small jar of Coffee, but I am assured that 5 months on it still tastes more than fresh enough to drink.
Like the Sugar Jar, the Heritage Coffee jar is also dishwasher safe, which will make washing it out when we do finish a jar nice and easy. The beige colouring of the product makes it blend in easily to our Kitchen, especially alongside the Tea and Sugar jars and despite having a 850ml capacity it, just like the Sugar jar and the Tea jar is only 10cm wide, meaning they take up minimal space.
As I've already mentioned that for me was the key feature we were looking for and the Tesco Heritage Coffee jar, just like the previously reviewed Sugar Jar delivered exactly what we had hoped. Not being a Coffee drinker I don't really know what makes good Coffee, but with the sealed lid the Heritage collection keeps the Coffee fresh and doesn't dry it out, making it a perfect addition to our Kitchen.
For the price and the style of the Heritage jars you really can't go wrong. It is a solid product that has been made with quality in mind and really serves its purpose well. As part of a set it looks good in our Kitchen and really is inkeeping with the overall aesthetics of the room, which for £2.50 is a steal. As a range I can honestly say that the Heritage collection is a winner and one we would be glad to recommend to anyone, especially at only £2.50 per jar.
