Quest for the perfect coffee


I’m known for my love of coffee, be it an ingredient in a cake or drinking it, I’m a huge fan. However I’m very fussy when it comes to coffee. For me a perfect coffee as to be so smooth I don’t need sugar to take away the bitterness.

While at Chantry on Saturday, Adrian from Azurieblue was there offering samples of his espresso. Not one to turn down a sample I gave it a go. I have to say it was one of the best coffees I have ever had. It was so smooth. Even Hubby who doesn’t usually drink coffee thought it was good.

The coffee is ground from ethically sourced Brazilian arabica beans (something that is important to me) and I found it rich, without being bitter and overpowering, with a hint of nutty chocolate. Naturally I was so impressed with the sample I bought some for myself, even better that the coffee tin matches my kitchen perfectly…I’m such a girl!

Over the last few days I’ve tried different ways of using the coffee. As an espresso, latte and mocha and each time it was delicious. I don’t think I’ve ever come across a coffee that is so versatile.

Azorieblue are due to have a stand at the Real Food Festival in April and I seriously recommend you visit them to taste their wonderful coffee.
