Kopi Coffee Club – A Review

Uncategorized | March 9, 2013 | By

Kopi Coffee Club delivers the world’s best coffees direct to you fresh each month.  Food related ‘clubs’ seem to be very popular at the moment.  There are all kinds of monthly schemes for chocolate, meat, vegetables, gourmet foods and now for coffee. 

I was sent a sample of the January coffee, Java Jampit Estate UTZ Certified Arabica.  This coffee is sustainably sourced and the blurb suggests that it is a perfect blend of the flavours of dark chocolate, lavender and liquorice.
We love our coffee and probably drink far too much of it at the weekends, it was clear that the Java Jampit Estate was high quality coffee and, while I could taste tones of chocolate, I couldn’t detect lavender or liquorice.  It was a very drinkable coffee and like the idea of a sending a three or six month subscription as a gift, however, I do think that £25.35 for three bags of coffee is excessive.  A 250g pre-ground bag of coffee sells at £9.95 whereas my usual coffee is under £5.00.
I was sent a bag of Kopi coffee to review, I was not paid for this review and all opinions are my own.

    Agree it is quite pricey, we get a huge bag of coffee beans from a seller in London, lasts us quite a bit. Just had a look, it's called AE Stanton and costs about a tenner for a kilo. Saying that, if someone sent me some of Kopi coffee as a gift, I'd be happy to try it.

    Hi there.

    Thanks for taking the time to review this. With regards to the cost, it's worth noting a couple of things that actually make it great value:

    1: It's premium and unique coffee – you'll struggle to find them anywhere yourself and they are premium beans from premium farms and growers
    2: Our experts (35 years experience each) taste over 35 coffees each month and pick the very best available, based on seasonality to put in our members boxes. A different one every month!
    3: Freshly roasted – for the ultimate flavour and aroma
    4: Free delivery – all included and posted through your letterbox (small packets cost over £2 to send)
    5: You become part of the Kopi club – a range of upcoming benefits such as massive discounts on coffee equipment, tasting workshops, and educational guides.

    Hope that helps a bit and thanks again.

    Thanks for your comment Pip, I appreciate that this is a premium product and value is subjective. I do however have to review as I find.
