I found them on Instagram, after a recommendation from a friend. I followed the link and after reading some reviews and checking out their social media, I bought some Coffee.
Easy and simple.
I placed the order at 21:14. I got a Facebook message from them a few minutes later confirming the order. At 07:45 the following morning, I get another Facebook message notifying me that my order has been shipped!
I’m not a fan of instant Coffee at all. In fact, I’ll go out of my way to avoid it. However, there are occasions when freshly brewed coffee just isn’t an option, it’s not always practical. What else can you do?
I believe I’ve found the answer. Coffee bags. Like tea bags, but with.. Coffee. That makes them Coffee bags right? I bought 40 from the Contact Coffee Company. They came via Royal Mail in a plastic wrapped parcel. Each Coffee bag is individually wrapped.
As soon as you open one of these foil sealed bags, the smell of fresh Coffee hits your nostrils at 100mph.
It’s the sort of smell that makes you involuntarily take in a deep breath through your nose and close your eyes.
The instructions say to add the bag to hot water and leave for three minutes, stirring occasionally. I’ll be honest here, I wasn’t impressed with my first cup. I immediately made a second cup, this time leaving it for five minutes.
The taste was INCREDIBLE. This is like freshly brewed Coffee, from a bag.
Is this my instant Coffee alternative? I think so.
I’ve now got a box full of them at work to take out to crime scenes where we’ll be there for an extended period of time, up until today, it’s had cheap maxpac cups of tea, Coffee and chocolate. No more.
Battle Prep is my new go-to quick Coffee.
