Got a voucher code with a delivery from probikekit the other day - just wondered if the coffee fans on here had tried it?
pactcoffee.com - anyone tried them?
Not tried it myself but know a bit about them (I know a few people in the coffee trade and the designer of their website) they used to just bulk buy from a roaster (that I can't really name) and repackage but they are now roasting their own. The beans will come from the usual wholesalers like mercanta and will be fresh roasted. Got to be worth a try.
They don't do over-roasted 'old brown Java' and overpriced blue mountain. I tend to avoid roasters who offer stuff like that as things have moved on after a few years of antipodean and American influence on how to roast coffee.
Cheers - initial pack for £1 sounds worth a try then!
Sister had a pack and didn't like it... gave it to me, and I had to agree.
For a quid it is worth a try, but we were pretty disappointed. Especially given their usual prices!
I like it well enough. Use code 'secret' to give it a try.
What else is recommended then?
If you don't want to offend anyone by being a coffee snob try Nescafé. Failing that try:
Tate (yes the gallery)
Climpson and Sons
Tried them all recently, all good and not expensive
Especially fond of James's Gourmet Coffee.
I'm just working my way through my £1 pack. It's good, but not sure it's good enough to warrant continuing at full price though.
