Coffee Love and Cru Giveaway

Nespresso coffee


Oh coffee how we both love you so, while I stick to full bodied decaff and John opts for a flat white we both celebrate your wonderful aroma and taste. To much delight we recently picked up a Nespresso machine for a real bargain price thanks to gumtree and it as really well timed as the lovely people at Cru Kafe asked if we would like to review their fresh, organic Flat White blend and of course we said yes.

We are still very new to the whole Pod coffee thing but paired up with our milk frother we have become instant fans it's such a lovely treat to have each morning. What we really like about Cru is that it uses the finest 100% Arabica Coffee but also have some great ethics behind it by using only producers that are organic certified and support cooperatives, plus there coffee is packaged in recyclable pods so you just add them to your normal recycling - good job. The flat white blend itself is very full and flavourful and John made it in a few different ways all with great success.


coffee capsules


Best of all the lovely people at Cru have been kind enough to offer one reader the chance to win either 60 Capsules (worth £24) or 1kg Fresh Coffee Beans (worth £28)
