The Whale Coffee

The Whale CoffeeThe guys at Whale Coffee have a small number of niche coffees with the number one intention of being morally and ethically sound. Everything they do is with the intent of raising some cash to donate to whale protection organisations. 

What a nice idea.

The Whale Coffee Killer Coffee Beans

Whale Coffee Killer coffee beansHere's a different concept for you - a coffee which is designed to actually be something other than just coffee. It’s coffee like any other hipster Hackney roaster might offer – but it’s very reason for being is that it’s to raise money for a good cause. In this case, whales. By which they mean humpbacks and the like, not the good folk of Abergavenny. So we've taken a break from our recent diet of own brand cheapies to have a go of this.  So, first attempt, it came out the perfect strength for us. It's a meaty full-bodied brew that does not disappoint. From their own blurb, we were expecting it to be a no nonsense heavy hitter; but no. OK it’s a strong 'un – but it also manages to deliver a whole heap of flavour. We didn’t get any of the chocolate or marzipan Whale claim they’ve stuffed in the packet. Instead we got a much more citrussy taste – like the marriage of an Italian and Kenyan. What a great combo – we loved it. Fancy it? Well – you better really want to do some whale luvin' as this stuff will set you back twelve quid a pack. But then that’s why you are buying it – to do something good and not just satisfy your own selfish needs for another caffeine hit?  So, despite the price – we’d say buy it as a gift for someone. That way they, you and the whale will all be happy. It's a 9/10 from us - only losing a point for the eye watering price.
