Pact El Retiro Coffee Beans

Pact El Retiro Coffee BeansThese beans are just not appetising. They're a pale and dusty brownish colour - something akin to a pile of rabbit droppings that's been lying out in the sun all summer. When we ground them down they were full of a lot of chaff too and looked like a pile of ground Sahara sand. So far, not so good, eh? But on finally pouring it into the cup, it does redeem itself. It then looks good with a nice head – although still is a very light brown colour. The packet claims it tastes of “roast hazelnuts” – which it doesn’t – instead it has a real fruity twist to it – which is a real pleasant surprise when you slurp it. The only real trouble we had was with strength – it needed a long grind to get it fine enough to use and even then we had to heap the spoons high to get any kind of kick out of it. So one point off for fiddly-ness to make, it’s a 7/10

Pact Finca La Joyeria Coffee Beans

Pact Finca La Joyeria Coffee BeansAnother great metaphor from Pact - poached pear they claim in this one. The taste buds of those Pact kids must be so finely tuned that not only can they detect pears in this - but how they have been cooked!  Suffice to say - we couldn't taste them, being just your average coffee plebs. But plebs we may be, we know a good drop when we get it and this is our second packet of Pact to deliver. It's great - it's a heavy, full flavoured coffee, with a nice pale foaming head on it, more akin to a real ale than a coffee. It's smooth as hell and slid down in seconds, despite us spooning it up big time - there was nothing we could do wrong with this one. We don't know how you could get any of this without going on their mail order scheme... but we suggest you try. 8/10
