Hancock and Abberton Fixx Coffee

Hancock and Abberton Fixx CoffeeThis a little poncy number picked up online by one of our rookie judges. The claim being it was award winning. Well, from the packaging it looks like a TK Maxx special - all thick shiny plastic and a sticker proclaiming "Great Taste" on the front. We'll be the judges of that. Packaging aside - this stuff belies its packaging and is genuinely a good tasting brew. It needs a good fine grinding to get the best of it - the first couple we did were way to weak. But once we had got it right it was a really mellow tasting but still powerful brew. Even though we'd really spooned it up to get the biggest hit we could, it was still silky smooth and was glugged down in seconds, with just a nice smooth aftertaste and no hint of the metallic ashtray we're so used to from coffee in these kind of packets. So get some if you can find it. A good 8/10 - maybe lost a point for the faff in getting the strength right.
