So when the lovely people at Beanies contacted me and asked if I would like to review their coffee, the answer was an enormous yes!!!
Beanies are a company that produce flavoured coffee. The company has been going since 2009 and they claim that the secret is in the blend and remember it is all about the flavour but not improving the coffee flavour, no adding a bit of variety and va va voom.
Using the finest raw materials, their coffee brings you a twist on the normal cup of coffee and to my delight, it is low in calories too.
Producing both instant and premium roast coffee, there is something for everyone in their range. I was sent a couple of jars of their instant coffee for my taste buds to tackle.
I received a jar of the french vanilla flavour and a jar of the rich hazelnut flavour. If these don't appeal to you, you can also get : amaretto almond, caramel, cinnamon & hazelnut, double chocolate and irish cream.
I love the packaging, the bright colours draw you in and the fun bean design makes you really look and start reading what is inside of the jar.
Now this was a review that Daddy Hazelden was more than happy to help with, he too loves his cup of coffee in the morning. We differ on how we take our coffee though, he will drink his with milk and two sugars, I however will drink my black with one sugar, what is it they say, opposites attract!!
Upon opening the jar, you are instantly met with a heavenly smell, this was the same for both the vanilla and hazelnut. You only need one teaspoonful per cup, so the small jar will last you quite a while, depending on how many cups of coffee you have in a day.
It is extremely easy to make, just add boiled water and then sugar and milk if this is something you like. I can see you all looking at my picture and thinking that coffee looks really appealing right about now.
The flavour was just as good as the smell. What I really loved was that the flavourings weren't overpowering, you got the taste of coffee first and then the taste of vanilla/hazelnut as more of an after taste. Also the flavourings weren't overly sweet. It definitely helped make the start of my days positive.
Daddy Hazelden and I both agreed that the french vanilla was the better flavour out of the two however I wouldn't hesistate to recommend the pair of them.
With prices starting from just £2.50, you can purchase the coffee online or you can buy their wonderful coffee from Sainsburys, who stock an exclusive range of Beanies. Next on my list to try is irish cream and amaretto almond mmmmmm, what flavour will you be tasting first??
