When I was offered the chance to review CRU Kafe coffee pods, I literally jumped at the chance. The Husband loves coffee, loves it! His parents bought him a lovely Krups coffee machine for his birthday a few years back, and it’s possibly the best, certainly most used, gift he’s ever had! He needs that morning coffee, especially on those mornings after a night of broken sleep with the little ones. He was rather pleased to be trying CRU Kafe coffee out for me, so here’s what he thought and some more information about them…
Their website tells us a little about CRU Kafe…
We only use 100% high altitude Arabica coffee, meaning CRU’s beans boast complex flavours that result from the extremes of sunny hot days and cool, brisk nights. The outcome is a coffee unlike any other. You wont see cheap Robusta beans in our coffee either – which many commercial roasters use to bulk out cheaper blends.
CRU is partnered with some of the most specialised producers in areas recognised for growing the world’s best coffee, including an Ethiopian collective, a Peruvian cooperative, and a community estate in India. All of our partners employ traditional and certified organic farming methods, which means no nasty chemicals or fertilizers, no aggressive farming practices, and only 100% natural ingredients.
And so the lovely people at CRU Kafe sent us this…
They fit in the Krups machine perfectly. They are also recyclable pods, and the team at CRU Kafe are currently looking for ways to make them biodegradable.
And the taste? Hurrah, it’s good! It has a nice frothy top on it and it can be an espresso or a lungo. It tastes smooth, with a fruity undertone, and is a lovely way to start his day.
You can choose various subscription packages, with the right to cancel at any time, starting from 24 pods per month, for £10 including P&P.
