OUR COFFEE IS GREAT, AND HERE’S WHY…

 

At the Coffee House and Deli, we only use Vascobelo coffee; Belgium’s finest blend of organic Arabica beans. Here’s a little more info for coffee connoisseurs.

TASTE

This coffee has an unprecedented mildness. A sensual delight, created with a fine balance of subtle aromas. The rich body displays a taste pallet of fruit, caramel, nuts, chocolate, a tinge of almond and honey. It all mixes together perfectly into a full-bodied and silky blend

 

STORY

Our Le Roi has been carefully composed of the very best coffee beans from coffee-producing countries such as Brazil, Costa Rica, Zambia, Java and Rwanda. Vascobelo have developed this prizewinning blend in co-operation with Belgium’s most critical coffee tasters.

This coffee blend is 100% Arabica, organic, fair trade and Rainforest Alliance certified. The latter is a quality mark which guarantees that the coffee beans are grown with respect for environment, people and animals.

DON’T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT….

We had never even heard of Vascobelo coffee – until the guys at morethanjustcoffee.com got in touch with us and asked us if we would like to review a few packs. Errrrr.. YES we said – send it over NOW and stop wasting our time with pointless questions. And they did – shed loads of it – bags, pods and even a machine. These guys really know how to treat an impartial coffee reviewer. As they handed the stuff over we did tell them – if it’s crap, we’ll say so. So here’s the first one – and it’s a lush 1kg bag. Bags this big always give us a warm fuzzy feeling and kind of always lead to good reviews. Not because we’re easily bought – but because when you use the same coffee over and over again for a few weeks, you get to know exactly how to make it. This stuff was a universal crowd pleaser in our office – never have so many people suddenly become coffee drinkers – they’ve been glugging it down like it’s the last beans on earth and the beans themselves were a lovely, uniform look that almost looked like sweets. We never had a bad cup from this bag – when we made it strong it was good, and when we made a weaker one (God forbid) it was still top class. There’s no weird and fancy flavours in here – no lemons, nuts or chocolate – it’s just proper coffee. I don’t know how you get this stuff as a consumer, but we would advise you try. I’m struggling for a reason to not give this one a 10 out of 10.  So it’s a 10 out of 10.
