If you like your coffee with a conscience then you’ll be in for a treat with this review and giveaway. The folks at Puro sent me lots of their fairtrade ground coffee to try along with some very delicious hot chocolate too. You’ve probably already tried their coffee as Puro supply every National Trust site, all the Royal Parks in London (the Queen actually had to sign off the cup design to allow it in the parks), Le Pain Quotidien, Leon and lots of garden centres and golf clubs. The parent company who make Puro have been roasting coffee in Belgium for 212 years so I guess they know a thing or two after all that time.
Puro use a percentage of their sales to purchase and protect rainforest reserves in the countries that grow their coffee, they’ve even made a little film about it that you can watch here. Now this is all very well and good but what does the coffee taste like? Well out of the three varieties sent to me my favourite was the Puro Organic, from Peru and Honduras. It had a kind of creaminess to it that I tend to only experience in posh coffee shops with very expensive machines. It also faintly reminded me of my fave tea, Lady Grey… but I think that would be the citrus notes, not that this coffee tasted like tea at all. All in all, I would heartily recommend. I have even managed to wean my Dad off his decaf to take home half a bag of Fuerte.
