One for the Starbucks fans

Roasted to a crisp, oils forced to the surface of the bean so there'll be more in your grinder than in your cup, look out for distinctive notes of charcoal, campfire, and and a long finish of burnt rubber. Ideal for serving with half a pint of frothy milk and some kind of vanilla caramel pumpkin chai syrup, but certainly not as a pleasant cup of black coffee.

Love it!

I use it in a bean to cup set up and very pleased with the result.......however coffee taste is such a personal choice that find it hard to take account of reviews...

Rating: 4 star out of 5

decently strong coffee

used in a bean to cup krups espresso machine this makes a strong coffee with no hint of the bitter aftertaste described by other reviewers. Great for lattes etc but lacks the depth of crema required for authentic espresso experience.

Completely agree with Fiona. These beans used to be good quality for supermarket beans however they're now roasted much darker leading to a very bitter, unpleasant cup. I'm not sure why they changed this as people could order the french style beans if they wanted a darker roast.

Disappointed by changes...

I have been buying this product for many years and have noticed in the last few months the packaging has changed along with the strength rating from 4 to 5 on the packaging despite what it says here. The new product is a much more bitter coffee which I dont enjoy at all and am know searching for an alternative. From someone elses comments on the Columbian blend they have a similar issue with a formerly great coffee blend.

Baileys Espressotini

A classy cocktail with a rich smooth flavour, frothy finish and coffee kick. An espresso is simply concentrated coffee. As it's often thicker than coffee it's the perfect consistency for cocktails like this one.
