I was recently asked if I would like to review some of the Beanies The Flavour Co range of new limited edition Christmas flavoured coffees, so on seeing the selection and having a sweet tooth, of course I said yes!
Beanies flavoured instant coffee can be purchased online or in Sainsburys in the UK. No ordinary coffee but "flavoured coffee kings since 2009". I must confess I hadn't heard of Beanies before.
The three jars of premium freeze dried coffee I received to review arrived carefully packaged and came in cute 50g jars.
I asked for the Winter Warmer, Rich Hazelnut and Amaretto Almond flavours. These retail on the website from £2.50 a jar. Each jar has a different bright and colourful label on it as you can see.
Each flavour I tried had a very strong aroma and a little goes a long way! Once the foil seal is broken to enjoy the coffee you can actually smell the different aromas with the lid screwed tightly on the jar.
I gave my Dad a cup of the winter warmer as he likes different coffee and he said it has a strong flavour. The amaretto one was my favourite and the hazelnut the least strong in flavour.
I would say depending a taste, one small teaspoon is all you need to make a perfect cup. Usually I take sugar but as the jars state, there is no need to further sweeten the coffee. If you like strong flavours and want to try a seasonal coffee why not look at the website and try some for yourself.
