Top notch coffee & win a 3 months coffee subscription – Closed

I have always believed in finding happiness in the little things that life can offer you and for me after my family the next big thing is certainly food.

I also get infinite pleasure from my daily espresso. After just one cup I can sing with joy. I feel alive again! Would you call this addiction? No I don’t have that many really. I can also be happy with one a day but it has to be good quality coffee.

I was also singing when I received coffee to review from “Blue Coffee Box”. A “Speciality Quality Coffee” with new flavours and coffees from coffee producing countries from around the world.

At Blue Coffee Box they select the absolute cream from many UK expert roasters who know how to extract the maximum flavour from every bean.

I thought the box, which is shaped conveniently to fit my letter box, was very elegant. I love their blue wrapping and packaging and I thought It would make a nice present for someone.

Blue Coffee Box subscription

Inside there were 3 x 135g coffees with tasting cards explaining the origin and the details of the farmer for every coffee.

Each packet carried the roasting date which was only a couple of days before I received it so it was super fresh. Blue Coffee Box offer subscription coffee boxes too.

You can choose between whole beans or ground coffee for cafetiere, dripper or espresso.

Blue Coffee Box

When I opened the packets there was a gorgeous smell of fresh coffee. Two coffees were single origin coffees with their own distinct flavour. For example the “San Ignacio” coffee from Peru had notes of apple, almonds and chocolate whereas the “Finca Las Nubes” from Argentina had notes of fig and toffee. The espresso version was a blend from 3 countries and had a flavour of butterschotch and cherry.

    It’s a longish answer so sorry to be boring.

    I had been going to a pony trekking centre for a few years on holiday and had fallen madly in love with one of the horses. We often joked that if I could get the money together I would love to have Sunny. In the time between one year and the next I got the chance to help out at our local riding stables every Friday and when they had events on, Didn’t get paid but was treated amazingly and often rode my favourite horse as a result during my normal lessons. So after a few months of this, my parents decided that I could start looking for my own. As they knew the holiday stables often loaned their horses out for the winter, and was ready to book my holiday again, they rang to book and asked if I could take one of the horses home for the winter. They said definitely BUT Sunny had gone out on summer loan. I was a bit childish and said “I wasn’t going, and was going to start the hunt for my own instead”. Mum and Dad persauded me to go. When we got there, the owners of the stables told me to go to the yard and see if there were any of the new horses I quite fancied trying out. Sunny’s head came over the door as soon as he heard my footsteps. Needless to say, when it came to take him home for winter, my parents decided to tell me (1 hour before) that they had bought Sunny and he wasn’t coming home for winter, he was coming home for good! 🙂 Was absolutely amazing. They eventually told me that the main instructor at the stables at home, had already spoken to them and sad that I was ready for my own horse which wouldn’t have done any harm either.

    30 years ago, my husband & I went on a sailing holiday in the Caribbean with 2 friends, one of whom had a captain’s license which meant we rented “bareboat” and sailed the boat ourselves. It was fabulous and we visited lots of different islands, some inhabited, some deserted with no-one there but us.
