I am always on the hunt for the perfect cup of coffee. My family say I am a coffee snob as I scoff at instant and insist on a real cup every morning in life. It is my little luxury and I make my own to my own specific requirements. To be fair this is born out of necessity since the nearest Costa or Starbucks is an hour’s drive from Coombe Mill! Our local town and villages have some lovely independent coffee shops ideally situated for watching the world go by which are perfect for our holiday makers. However while I am here working I still like to allow myself a 15 minute break each morning to make and enjoy my own perfect coffee here at Coombe Mill.
Introducing CRU Kafe
I came across CRU Kafe on twitter and after chatting happily agreed to indulge my coffee love and review some of their premium 100% Organic and Fair Trade Arabica coffee. It comes in handy bags with a reseal closure in pure bean form or in recyclable capsules if you have a Nespresso machine. You can order your supplies direct from the CRU website to your door each month in quantities to suit your needs.
As a coffee purest I put the beans to the test grinding them in my special gadget for the purpose to make the fine grains needed for my coffee machine. I can tell you now the smell is divine from the freshly ground beans.
Usually I like to add frothy milk to make a cappuccino but the coffee was so smooth and rich looking as it filtered into my cup I couldn’t resist a sip of the hot black liquid straight away. It was so smooth and mellow I drank the first cup black barely stopping to take a picture! For my second cup I made my regular bespoke cappuccino with frothy hot milk. With the milk added it is a milder coffee than my usual but with the entire wake up kick of a quality cup and very drinkable indeed.
I would have no hesitation in recommending CRU Kafe beans and can only imagine the capsules are of the same high standard described as “Finer Coffee in a Kinder Capsule” by the makers and voted “Best coffee in a pod” by the Sunday Times.
