Honest Coffees Firefly

Honest Coffees FireflyOnce we read the side of the packet of this one we were sucked straight in. Not since that rather ill judged biriyani for elevensees we had last summer have we suffered from a "cardamom finish". Unfortunately though, the cardamoms never materialised - which to be honest is a good thing - as they have no place whatsoever in a cup of coffee. We didn't pick up on te honey or blackcurrant either, Basically, the whole blurb on the side was clearly written by someone who'd just taken some cold remedies the night after a big curry and was still suffering from the after effects. Similes aside - this coffee didn't really do much for us. It tastes fine but it could be just about anything - it was shallow in flavour and just didn't deliver. maybe we didn't make it strong enough? 6/10

Honest Coffees Up And At 'Em

Honest Coffees Up And At 'EmThis is probably the first coffee we have ever had that claims to taste of peanuts. So from the outset let's clear this up - it doesn't. And a good thing too as there's nothing more likely to ruin a good cup of coffee that a sprinkling of KP's finest all over it. What next - Chicory??  Hazelnuts? 'nuff said. The first cup we have from this was a real washout - weak as hell even when made at our normal strength of 5 desert spoons for two cups. But on closer inspection when we ground the beans for the second cup we realised why - these beans are as hard as the Kray Twins and practically took the blades off our puny little grinder. We had to put them through again before they submitted and we finally got to taste what this coffee's really like. We couldn't really pick up any berry fruits in there as they claim - it's pretty much a standard coffee without any whistles and bells. Nice enough - but neither super strong nor super fruity it kind of falls into no-mans land. 7/10
