If you know my Mummy at all, you will know that she loves her coffee! So how excited was she to be asked to take a coffee taste test challenge by Greggs. This is the perfect dream job for Mummy. What did she find?…..
Last weekend we visited some great coffee shops to put their coffee to the test. We visited Cafe Nero, Costa and Greggs.
Mummy ordered her favourite coffee – latte. Now Mummy has a latte every day, so knows a thing or two about coffee and how it should taste. She has scored them between 1 – 5, 1 being poor, 5 being superb!
In Cafe Nero it was £2.50 for a regular cup. It normally has two shots of coffee, but Mummy asked for one. She said it was delicious, but two shots would have been too strong. It smelt good and looked good. Mummy’s Score 5.
In Costa, it was £2.15 for a small latte. It was a good size though, a tall glass cup with one shot. This latte was a little too milky for Mummy. It smelt good but looks quite pale. Mummy’s Score 3.
In Greggs it was £1.80 – there only seemed to be one size. Mummy doesn’t know how many shots of coffee there were in it. She said it had good taste and was great value for money. It smelt and looked good. Mummy’s Score 4
The only place that states on the menu board that the coffee is Fair Trade is Greggs. Mummy looked for signs in the other coffee shops, but couldn’t see any. Greggs is a key partner of Fairtrade Fortnight which runs from Monday 27 February to Sunday 12 March. Over the last 10 years, Greggs have donated over £1 million through coffee sales alone. All Greggs hot drinks are Fairtrade certified. New for 2017 are Vanilla Syrup, Peppermint and Green Tea.
Greggs have only very recently introduced a seated cafe area into our local stores, and we sat in the one we visited. It was very popular and busy, but there were no rubbish bins for anyone to use, and the floor and tables were absolutely filthy which was a shame. To be completely honest the experience was a nicer one in the other two coffee shops.
Do you like coffee? Which is your favourite one?
