Aldi Coffee Reviews

Aldi Coffee ReviewsWe went into Aldi and snapped up everything they had - which isn't a bad selection to be honest. But is Aldi coffee any good? Well - the answer is definitely yes. The budget stores seem to constantly come out on top when they're compared to big name brands in like for like blind tastings - and for a fraction of the price. We tried to do it blind but, after 2 hours trying to find the kettle, gave up and looked at what we were doing. It's so much easier - why don't more people do it like that? Currently these coffees are a good 30% cheaper than anything else out there (that's drinkable). They're all respectable - so throw away your pre-conceptions and get down there!

Aldi Alcafe Rich Roast Ground Coffee

Aldi Alcafe Rich Roast Ground CoffeeYou just cannot knock this stuff. It comes from Aldi - which as we are all now starting to realise, does not mean dodgy budget products but infact means good stuff from Europe that's cheap as chips. This is another one from that stable - we paid £2 or £2.50 for this bigger than normal (250g) bag. OK the packet looks like some French hypermarket cheapy that will taste like ground ash, but trust us, it doesn't. It's a perfectly good brew that comes up as strong as you like it and we would happily drink it all day long and wouldn't be that upset if it was the only coffee known to man. If you're at work with a shared coffee kitty, make this be your donation and no one will ever know you're a tight arse cheapskate. Just hide the bag. 8/10

Aldi Specially Selected Colombian Coffee

Aldi Specially Selected Colombian CoffeeAnother cheap but good-un from Aldi. Its coarsely ground so you can’t really balls it up in your caffetiere – though of course this does mean that we couldn’t spoon it up too high – this one hasd a ceiling that we couldn't really get over. Not that it needs it – it's strong enough more or less however you make it. And it looks really inviting – a lovely pale brown crema on the surface that holds down the side of the cup to the bottom. Another perfectly respectable all day drinker from Aldi that you could serve at your dinbner party without being found out. We're only taking a point off for it not having any quirky flavours. 7/10

Aldi Specially Selected Ethiopian Ground Coffee

Aldi Specially Selected Ethiopian Ground CoffeeBuying anything from one of the discount supermarkets like Aldi always seems like a gamble - even though they seem to consistently come out top in blind taste tests. They had quite a shelf of coffee in Aldi, so we went for them. At £1.99 a pack you can't expect to be blown away - this is ridiculously cheap stuff. But it does the job pretty well - its got that slightly citrus taste that you would expect from anything from the East African highlands and every time we made it in the caffetiere it looked like velvet - with a creamy head that lingered down the cup as we drunk it. In fact, we could drink this stuff all day. Our only gripe is that it's a fairly course grind which meant we could never get it to really deliver on strength, no matter how many spoons went in the pot. Not a hangover cure then, more of a sunny afternoon, refreshing all day glugger. 7/10
