Home Ground Coffee (and discount)
“I think we all pray to the first cup of the day. It's a silent prayer,
sung while the mind is still foggy and blue"
~Stewert Lee Allen
I think those words are probably the closest I can come to describing my love of coffee. Nothing ever tastes as good as the first sip of the coffee of the day. The first inhalation of a new packet, pure heaven!
We’re rather picky with our coffee. We have a variety of coffee makers in search of that perfect constant cup but continuously come back to fresh ground coffee. No electronic machine can produce the same effect. So we jumped at the chance to review Home Ground Coffee….
Firstly before we were even sent the coffee I decided to take a look at Alastair’s website. Lovely to see his coffee is sustainable and a fair deal for the farmers who produce it. And bespoke coffee? To quote Alastair “Customers can decide for themselves how they want it. They can choose single-origin coffee or we can discuss with them exactly how they would like it blended," he says. "What we’re offering essentially is bespoke coffee, made the way the customer wants.” And it’s true. Each roast is handled individually to get the best out of that blend. You can choose to have Whole Bean, Stove top, Manual filter, Espresso, Turkish, Machine filter or as we did Cafetiere. Hand roasted!
All I can say is I knew what had arrived before I opened the parcel. That smell that only fresh ground beans can produce had seeped through, even our local postman wanted me to open it up to take the name of it it smelt so good.
As to the taste, I tweeted that night as we tried it, you see the wine tasters on TV talking about hints of chocolate, scents of nutmegs etc and I have known what that meant till I tried Home Ground Coffee. Coffee! With proper caramel under currents. AMAZING!!
Not only does Alastair offer ground coffee or coffee beans he is also now offering coffee subscriptions. A selection of fresh coffee delivered directly to your home. Your choice to have as much coffee delivered to your day each month as you like and bespokely how you like! Not only a rather fabulous as gift to yourself I rather like that you can give this to someone as a present. Fathers Days are now not so gloomy on the present front!
So why not take up this offer of 15% off with the code FUELMYCOFFEE and try a Damn Jimmy Espresso for yourself? I promise you, you won’t regret it!
