Lately I have been getting right into my coffee, I used to be a tea drinker but now I’m a traitor and been converted to coffee. It seems like such a necessity during these colder months, now its super dark when we get up in the morning I struggle to get myself out of bed when I know fine well I have a busy day ahead of me, I’m sure I’m not the only one with this struggle!
So when I was contacted by the lovely Lindsay and given the opportunity to try out some different coffees from Rombouts I couldn’t say no, its interesting to discover so many different coffees out there compared to the Nescafe I usually drink. I had never heard of this company before so to be able to discover a new brand is fantastic. So lets talk a little bit about the company.
Rombouts is a family owned and run coffee business, founded in Belgium back in 1896. They specialise in coffee (obvz) and have been supplying the UK coffee drinkers for over 50 years. In 1958 they actually invented the one cup filter and is their most popular product across the whole of their range of coffees.
Another interesting fact about Rombouts is they are Fair Trade and help build up strong relationships with all their coffee farmers to promote a healthy business. Having a little scroll through their website I also noticed that they are committed to the Global Compact which is a movement based on the 10 universal principles on human rights, working standards and the environment. I’m starting to love this brand already!
So lets talk through some of their products:
Now you may of seen featured in my October favourites one of the coffees and I’m completely obsessed, like seriously OBSESSED. This is the Cuba Single Origin Ground Coffee* and it as to be one of the nicest coffees I’ve ever had in my life! A cup of this sets me up for the whole day. As I also mentioned in my October Favourites one of the things I always need in a good cup of tea or coffee is sugar, like 3/4 spoonfuls of it, but with this I don’t need any at all. Its so smooth to drink and has notes of caramel and cacao. Absolutely divine!
I haven’t given this one a try but I also received the Laos Single Origin Ground Coffee* but I’m super excited to try it, I’ve read somewhere that its stronger than the Cuban one.
To make these ground coffees I was also sent a cafeteria which I thought was a huge bonus as I didn’t actually own one, for a coffee drinker I seriously am letting the team down. Its the perfect size to make 1 cup of coffee as well which is perfect. Another added bonus was the travel mug, I had been looking into getting one of these as they are handy for work so I’m so thankful.
Now moving onto the One Cup Filter Coffee.
I was sent 4 different One Cup Filter Coffees and I’m super excited to give these a try. How these work is you pop them on the top of your cup, making sure its stable and secure and all granules in the pod is separated equally. Then you pour hot (NOT BOILING) water into the pod up to the line then put the lid on top and wait for all the water to filter through. I can clearly understand how these are such a popular product, it makes making filter coffee easier when on the go whether you’re at work or travelling. I am yet to try these as I’m one of those people who only likes 1 thing open at a time. So I’ll go through the different types of One Cup Filters you get
Italian Style One Cup Filters*
Original One Cup Filters*
Colombian One Cup Filters*
Decaffeinated One Cup Filters*
Personally the decaffeinated ones I probably wont try and will donate to someone else because I love a good caffeine boost, but the rest I’m excited to try and see how they work and if they really are as good as everyone says they are.
If you are interested in giving these a try then check them out on the Rombouts website and you can find selected ones in local supermarkets. I’ve also noticed they do different types of tea as well which I need to try! I cannot recommend these enough especially the Cuban filter coffee, its my absolute favourite and will be repurchasing for many months to come!
Have you tried Rombouts before?
Until next time,
*These products were sent to me to test and review but this doesn’t alter my opinion, they are all my own!
