The Delivery

Just holding this packet in my hand I was hit with an amazing smell of coffee, and if it tasted as good as it smelled I couldn’t wait to make myself a cup.

I loved the design of the package, the reds whites on black this really gave it a cool look and really stands out.

I also noticed it said “don’t take more than one shot” so I am guessing it was a strong coffee…I will find out.

The Coffee

I followed the instructions and made a single shot coffee.

The first thing that hits you is how lovely the smell is, its a really nice aroma.

Now to taste.

This wasn’t as strong as I thought it would be going by the tag line “one shot”, but wow yeah it had a really nice flavour.

The next day I actually was a bad boy and didn’t follow the rules, and made myself a double shot of this to see how that was.

Ohh now this was a game changer for me, as it had a smoother and better flavour for my taste palate.

At the time of posting this review, I am now under half way as I have enjoyed this every morning since I got it.

Overall :

Firstly a big thank you to the guys for sending me this coffee to try and review, I love trying new brands and new products.

This is a great coffee and comes in ground beans, whole beans, and you can even setup a subscription so you don’t ever need to worry about not having the coffee in your kitchen waiting for you.

Afternoon Tea at La Bonne Auberge (Glasgow) : Review

V: 14th December 2020


Today I went out with my mum and gran, and we went for a wee afternoon tea at La Bonne Auberge.

I have been here before, and so has my mum and gran. We have always loved the atmosphere, and their afternoon tea’s.

The Food

We booked via 5pm and then booked the time slot that suited us best.

Afternoon tea

I am a big fan of afternoon tea, you have sandwiches, cakes and then sweets and a coffee whats not to like?

The atmosphere in here is always lovely, plus since it was near Christmas they had decorated inside very nice.

Presentation just like the last time was very nice….The afternoon tea was very good, and very tasty.

The sandwiches I mostly ate were salmon which was lovely and fresh, and I always love a scone cream and jam. If i was too be very fussy here….clotted cream is 100% better but it was still a very nice scone cream and jam.

The cakes well you know me I have a sweet tooth, most were gone but I was so full I had to take some home.

Visit Overall :

I cant fault anything today, the staff, service and afternoon tea was really good.

We all had a very relaxing time, and enjoyed every moment and plan on coming back again.

Dads Birthday Afternoon Tea at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel (Edinburgh) : Review

Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh
Princes Street
Edinburgh, EH1 2AB

V: 5th September 2020


Wanted to post this a while ago, but had a few priority things to post so finally here it is.

The past week I have had bad news followed by more bad news, and this same week it was my dads birthday….just all bad timing.

We booked this ages ago, as the last time we were here we loved it and thought my dad would like it to….and we couldn’t wait to go back.

The afternoon tea was served in “Peacock Alley” which has a great atmosphere for Afternoon Tea, catchups or even private meetings.

Menu

To save me typing it up, here is the pic

How good does this sound? just reading it made my mouth water.

The Afternoon Tea

As you saw from the above photo, it sounded amazing! and we all couldnt wait till it came out.

As you can see the presentation was really good.

The food from start to finish was perfect! it was the perfect amount and everything was very very tasty.

The best part which I really love is they gave clotted cream with the scones, this is the only way scones jam and cream should be served……top marks here!!!!
