There are a number of factors that go into a great coffee bean that produces maximum flavour but one of the most important criteria is how freshly roasted the beans are.
The beans themselves can come from all over the world but it is important that they are not roasted in the country of origin because there is a time limitation to getting the best flavour from a roasted coffee bean.
To get the very best from your purchase, aim to drink coffee that has been roasted no more than a month from the actual roasting date.
This is much easier said than done because we have become accustomed to looking at the use by date whenever we buy anything food or drink related.
When it comes to coffee beans you need to completely ignore the use by date and look for the roasting date. If you don’t know the roasting date then you should consider not even buying them.
Spiller and Tait Signature blend coffee beans are roasted in the UK in small batches on a regular basis so you know that you are getting the beans fresh. They commit to sending you beans that have been roasted in the last 7 days. That is not something that you will find in the high street coffee shops and reflects their commitment to providing you with a high quality product every time.
Finding the right coffee to suit your palette is very much an individual thing and is different for everyone but it helps to be able to start with a coffee blend like this that is a proven winner over years.
This blend is a two time winner of awards in specialist coffee competitions and has therefore been rubber stamped as a high quality coffee compared to other comparable products.
The company is owned by two Englishmen that have worked in the coffee industry for decades with the point being that they understand the British palette, what works and what doesn’t.
The huge rise in the ownership of home coffee machines means that drinking great coffee at home is no longer reserved for special occasions, it can be an everyday experience. Instant coffee sales are reducing and people now understand that if you pay just a little bit more and you brew it in the right way you can create a coffee experience rather than just make something you drink when you wake up in the morning.
Avoiding bitterness is a key component of all of Spiller & Taite’s coffee blends as they seek to provide a smooth coffee drinking experience that tones down the bitter element that is all too common in so many coffee’s.
Lavazza coffee beans are probably the world’s best known brand and they do some great tasting coffee but you can’t be sure of the roasting date like you are with Spiller & Tate.
This is a medium roast bean that is blended from beans that have been sourced from 5 countries making this a truly international coffee concoction.
Beans from India, Ethiopia, Kenya, Brazil and Columbia have been expertly combined in varying percentages to create a truly excellent coffee that punches above it weight.
Super smooth and very easy drinking with no bitterness and has chocolate notes coming through.
This coffee is rated a 3 on the strength indicator on a scale of 1-5 making it perfect to drink at any time of the day.
Whatever method you choose to brew your coffee as long as you choose to buy the beans and grind them for your own individual requirements you will not be disappointed. For a bean to cup coffee machine make sure the grind is set to very fine, for a filter coffee machine a little more coarse and if a cafetiere is your preference then coarser still to ensure the coffee releases all of its flavour.
This coffee is highly recommended. If you give it a try it is very likely you will be back for more time and time again.
