A few weeks ago I got chatting with this lovely guy and he tells me he works for a coffee company. An Aussie coffee company YAY. As I let the envy subside, I told him I was a blogger…..movie reviews but I review other stuff as well. He said I should look them up ….
So I did…..
After a few facebook inboxes and an email or two, the most divinely aromatic package arrived on my doorstep. Now I love coffee. I mean I LOOOOOOOOOOVE coffee. Ohhhhh yes, this was going to be a real treat.
But first a little bit about the company…..from their website:

This is my coffee machine. As you can see, it’s not top of the range but it’s far from a cheap, rubbishy one either. One of the questions the team at Hennessey asked was how I wanted my coffee…..whole beans, ground etc. ground beans please.
I was assured my beans were ground by pixies who only eat honey, flowers and the colours of the rainbow…..when they sing as they work, angels weep 😉
Enough of the formalities…..let’s taste some coffee yumm yumm yumm.
I tried 3 coffees in all……
The Platinum Blend ….. The smooth flavour, reminiscent of rich, creamy caramel, is derived from a blend of Costa Rican, New Guinean and Indian coffee beans.
The Mojo Blend …… Medium strength coffee with a beautiful, smooth taste containing a hint of chocolate.
The Venetzia Blend …… A medium roast perfectly infused with floral notes and an underlying rich, earthy vein.
All 3 coffees were absolutely delicious but my favourite was the Premium Blend. With all the blends, there were no over-powering flavours. If you want a shot of caramel or chocolate, buy a syrup ( oh and Hennessey sell syrups too). The hints of and infused with were exactly that…..just perfect.
The most noticeable thing about each coffee was the lack of a bitter aftertaste. It happens in most cheaper coffee blends and in many of the more expensive brands as well. It’s the main reason I steer clear of so many brands and am somewhat of a coffee snob.
Oh and yes I do drink instant coffee and yes I do use the coffee machine at work when I want a quick moccachino….. but when I choose my blends, I am a fussy snob.
Hennessey Coffees get a two thumbs up from me. I will be getting more in…..very soon from the looks of my half empty coffee packs. And they are an Aussie company which you all know thrills me no end.
So visit them if you want some coffee for your personal use of if you wish to become one of their select stockists. The links are below and as always…..tell them Flick sent you. And as always, it probably won’t get you anything but I do like saying it 😉
