As you may have guessed from my birthday present from Mr Dave, I am a bit of a coffee fan! I drink it multiple times every day and I like “proper” coffee, either in a cafetiere or my lovely coffee machine, I also have a drip coffee machine.
So when I was offered the chance to review Kopi Coffee I jumped at the chance!
Kopi offer a subscription based service, from their site:
Every month we’ll send you a different hand-picked gourmet coffee chosen by our Kopi experts from around the world.
They have 3 different subscription levels
- Monthly – £9 gets you 250g of coffee delivered once a month and you can stop and start as you see fit
- 6-monthly – £8 a month (£48 every 6 months) for 250g of coffee delivered for 6 months
- Annual – £7 a month (£84 every 12 months) for 250g of coffee every month for a year
I got to try 100g of their January coffee:
Malawi Geisha AB Msese District
Which I have to say is out of this world! The coffee comes with a tasting notes document, so you can understand exactly what it is that you are drinking, where it is from and what you should be experiencing. I’m beginning to see that tasting coffee is a bit like tasting wine, but for me the best way I can describe this coffee is it is perfectly mellow, rich and delicious, no bitterness at all. It smells amazing and makes an awesome latte (yes, I realise this is a bit heathen!).
I really love the concept of the Kopi offering. A monthly subscription is a really lovely idea, what a treat to get a new coffee to try once a month? But here comes the rub, I understand that Kopi pay their farmers a fair price and this is reflected in the cost, but for me, the amount of coffee I drink, even £7 for 250g is just a bit prohibitive.
I do however, think that it is something I would buy as a gift for someone else, for a special birthday, or possibly a wedding gift for a coffee loving couple – the cost as a treat to myself though is a bit beyond my means.
I’d like to thank Kopi coffee for allowing me a chance to review their coffee in exchange for this review. I was sent the sample free of charge. The review is my genuine belief and I would not give a positive review unless I truly meant it.
