Rating:
Contains Coffee!
Sea Island Coffee is an "exotic coffee merchant" at the pricier end of the market. As the name suggests, their focus is on island coffees with offerings from Jamaica and, as here, Hawaii – however, their full range covers the all of the major coffee producing areas. They also offer a range of Kopi ...

East India Company Galapagos Enchanted Islands

Country: Ecuador
Region: Galapagos
Brand: East India Company
Rating:
Contains Coffee!
The East India Company is a name with 400 years of history, which has been talked about by people far smarter than me. Although immediately associated in my mind with tea, from the very beginning it was involved with importing all manner of goods from the East Indies - primarily from the Indian subcontinent and ...

Cherizena Fairtrade Guatamalan

Brand: Cherizena

Guatemala is one of those countries that challenges my geographical knowledge. In my mind, it sits in the same, vaguely defined "South American" zone occupied by places like Guyana and Nicaragua – although my brain still refuses to believe that Suriname isn't in Asia somewhere. In fact, Guatemala is in the middle of Central ...

When I think of Cuba, several products come to mind. Music. Cigars. Rum. Nuclear missiles. But not, curiously, coffee. Historically, Cuba was a big coffee producer; in the 1950s, exports were exceeding 20,000 tons. Post-revolution nationalisation took it's toll, and these days Cuba actually imports twice as much coffee as it produces – small wonder, ...

Marley Lively Up!

Brand: Marley
Rating:
Contains Coffee!
Marley Coffee was founded by Bob Marley's son, Rohan. All their coffee is organic and, as you might expect, they have their own estate in the Blue Mountains, in Jamaica. However, they also source beans globally from Ethiopia and Central America which makes it unclear precisely what goes into each of their three blends. This ...

Cherizena Banoffee Pie Flavoured

Brand: Cherizena
Rating:
Contains Coffee!
I am not, as a rule, a big fan of flavoured coffee. Actually that isn't strictly true – it's just that I always steer clear of flavoured coffee beans. I'm not entirely sure why this is the case; my drink of choice in Starbucks (yes, I like Starbucks – I accept this may ...

Pact Espresso Blend

Country: Guatemala, Brazil
Brand: Pact
Rating:
Contains Coffee!
It's fair to say that I've found many of Pact's coffees a little underpowered for my taste. The flavours have been pleasant enough, but I like a little more punch to my morning (or evening) mug. If any of their coffees are going to hit the spot, then surely the Espresso Blend will. A ...

Pact Finca San Antonio

Country: Guatemala
Brand: Pact
Rating:
Contains Coffee!
The great aspect of Pact's coffee subscription is the option to have a different coffee arrive every delivery. Although their range only has five coffees at any one time, there's enough turn-over that there always seems to be something new to try. Finca San Antonio is a Guatemalan coffee and as before, there's a wealth ...

Pact Samambaia

Country: Brazil
Brand: Pact
Rating:
Contains Coffee!
I love subscriptions. There's something magical about things arriving just as you need them, without having to do anything. I love that magazines just appear on my Kindle. I love that bin bags appear through my letter box just as I'm noticing that I'm nearly out. Combine the magic of automatically replenishing supplies with ...

Bettys Christmas Coffee

Rating:

As it's now December, I can just about bring myself to start paying attention to all the Christmas themed products that appear earlier and earlier each year. I should probably confess at this point that in my mind, "Christmas coffee" comes in the form of a Gingerbread Latte from Starbucks – with the ...
