Hello and welcome back to another Coffee Adventure post. This weeks post is a little different in the sense that I will be sharing with you some coffee that I have recently received, rather than a coffee shop. It’s still an adventure though!
I have followed Hessian Coffee Company for a while on Instagram and they’ve been a company that I’ve wanted to work with for some time. I’m very excited to have received these sample packs for me to try!
Okay, lets jump straight in!
Out of the three I definitely preferred the Bourbon Select and the Espresso Reserve. I feel that they were a bit sweeter. I have a very sweet tooth and the espresso No.1 was just a little too bitter for me.
I brewed the coffee for about 4-5 minutes.
I added a drop of caramel. Because why not?
Foamed a bit of milk and I was ready to indulge.
It made the perfect morning coffee to kick start my day!
I love that the Bourbon Select already had that hint of caramel, it was certainly enjoyable. Although, I do have to admit that the Espresso Reserve would easily become my everyday coffee.
I also used this coffee to make cold brews too and it was delicious.
It you are feeling super adventurous and want to make your own cold brew a little more creamy and luxurious, try this!
- Brew your coffee as normal.
- Get your blender ready.
- Scoop a serving of vanilla ice cream in into the blender. (use milk as a lower calorie alternative) soya milk also works great!
- Add a couple of ice cubes.
- A drop of syrup.
- Add your desired amount of coffee to the blender.
- And. MIX!
And that’s it! It’s kind of like a homemade Frappuccino.
Give it a go, and if you do, be sure to tag me in your pictures over on my Instagram. @paint_me_a_smile_
I got a few questions last week asking why am I trying different types of coffee and traveling so much to different coffee shops?
Firstly, I love coffee! Like so so so much. And, I love coffee shops! I’ve always done this amount of coffee drinking and coffee shop going it’s just, I’ve never talked about it as much. (I don’t think…)
Secondly, it’s probably no secret to the people around me but in the next year or so, I will hopefully opening my own coffee and cake shop. It’s a project I have been working on for so long and I want to get it right. That means, the best coffee, the best location and I am in the best place possible to do it right.
Thirdly, I’ve wanted to do a coffee shop adventure type series on this blog for a while. I just decided now was the best time to do it.
I hope that you enjoyed this post and if you have any question coffee related or not feel free to drop me a message.
Are you a coffee shop owner or manager or does your company make coffee, I would love to work with you!
A massive thank you to Neil over at Hessian Coffee Company for kindly sending me these samples (I still have the tea bags, I will review them over on my Instagram very soon)
Stay tuned for next weeks Coffee Adventure post.
Here’s a hint about next weeks post: …Margate!
Much love and happy coffee drinking,
