Marks and Spencer Christmas Coffee

Marks and Spencer Christmas Coffee

We've cracked - it's only mid November and we've been suckered in to this Christmas Coffee from M&S. In theory, we should love it - it should be totally over the top and over indulgent. Don't waste your time - it  isn't! There's more flavour in a bucket of reindeer's milk. It's just totally lacking uuumph. We immediately spooned it up a notch for the second cup and that made no difference either. This is meant to be a strength 4 - but it's more like a 2. It's not horrible though - it's the kind of just-about-ok-coffee that you might get made when visiting a friend's house. If you don't want to be over powered, if you like mellow, then you may well like this. Otherwise, it's a no no. 5/10

What the Manufacturer's say: 

"Rich and chocolatey, perfectly complements the flavours of Christmas."

Top marks for marks, the packaging truly says christmas and I picked this up even though I wasn't shopping for coffee. It's rich chocolatey and dark and complements christmas. At least it does if you believe the packet. Strength 4 as well. YES you might be thinking. Think again and to the inverse it was pansy poop and left me wanting a cup of coffee. I didn't hate it, not at all but it was wet and weak and creamy and lacking the juice to get me kick started for the day. I gave some to a girl and she liked it. Not for me this one I turned to my fellow judge after one sip and said 'thats crap'. He nodded and we drank in silence. Anticipating this afternoons remix. Time to up the spoonage!

It's the same, that's the thing with good coffee even if you over do it you still get a good coffee. The rule also applies to shit coffee though, you can't just add more and it tastes better.

This is the weakest tasting coffee I've had for some time. I ended up throwing out most of the packet as it was so weedy. My cat's urine probably has more oomph than this. 3/10!
