Marks and Spencer Cafe Connoisseur Dark Roast Coffee
This is a first - we had this one first thing and now we've had it again in the afternoon. The reason? It's a little beauty. Marks and Spencer have done us proud here with a rich tasting brew that lingers on the tongue as you swallow it down. It packs a meaty punch - it's a proper strength 5 for sure. Why aren't there more strength 5s about? It's not cheap though - I paid about £3.50 for this which puts it in the middle ground. This is coming in with a top score - only dipped down one point because there was no standout single quality to mention. Although the grind is perfect for the caffetiere - no sludge AT ALL left in the cup - that's a first! Judged at 9/10
"A traditional 'French-Style' full-bodied blend to complete a classic continental breakfast. Paris is the capital of style, right down to the darkly roasted coffee served at its many cosmopolitan street cafes. We have captured the intense flavours of a classic French roast to product a bold, chocolaty blend that is just as perfect with a pastry in the morning as it is after a hearty meal enjoyed with friends."
