I’m not generally one for coffee – I’m more of a ‘builder’s cup of tea’ lass, myself – but when Beanies got in touch and asked us to review their flavoured coffee range, I thought this was an opportunity not to be missed. On occasion, I’ve been known to enjoy a mocha and a slice of some sort of cake in a coffee shop on the high street so I hedged my bets that I’d like flavoured coffee if I chose wisely…
I chose three flavours of Beanies coffee to try – Double Chocolate, Cinder Toffee and a decaffeinated Amaretto Almond. I have a particularly sweet tooth, that you can probably tell by my choice in flavours, and usually add a teaspoon of sugar to a cup of tea. Upon trying these coffees, I found I needed to add a sugar to each of the flavours too as I thought they were a little bitter. However, that’s just my taste – my husband drinks coffee on a daily basis and found the coffees to be tasty without adding sugar, so I’d say it’s down to personal taste.
I particularly like the Cinder Toffee and Double Chocolate flavours. The Amaretto Almond flavour tastes a lot like marzipan, which isn’t a favourite of mine to be honest, but hubs enjoys it. The Double Chocolate tastes just like a mocha from the coffee shop – just without all the added calories!
Beanies provide a good range of flavoured coffee in jars storing a reasonable 50g of instant coffee granules. Each cup at just 2 calories a cup – you can treat yourself whenever you like, even if you’re following a diet. They’re much better for you than one of those full-fat, syrupy coffees from the coffee shop!
