General Comments
Kenco Really Smooth Instant Coffee Granules - Those that know me, know I can be a fussy whatnot and like most caffeine addicts out there, I've got to have my fix and whilst I'm watching me figure, so sadly no chocolate eggies for me, but I do like my coffee, one thing I won't give up! I do like the occasional cup of special 'fresh' coffee but that's when I do the host with the most bit with visitors, but for me, I find the ease of Kenco's fine coffee granules the best.

You can make a smashing cuppa in the space of a few minutes, water in kettle, switch kettle on, bob's your uncle and fanny's your aunt, pour into cup! What could be simpler. I like a generous helping of coffee, so I have a good teaspoonfull and it brings me back into reality of a morning! Ahhhhhh Kenco (sorry Bisto for stealing your ad!)

My housemate unfortunately decided to go for a BOGOF last month and purchased Red Mountain, and it was like drinking gnats pee (not that I've had the pleasure ;0) it was vulgar, but we had to use it up, I had one cup and managed to palm the other jar off to a friend and tonight, I made sure that Kenco is bought!

So what is special about Kenco? Well it's got a rich taste and scrummy aroma and it warms the old cockles (well at my age I need something to warm me up!) There is no 'bitter' after-taste and the granules make a great tasting coffee. Swap me Kenco for any other coffee? I should cocoa!

As for the price? For a 100gram jar of the really smooth variety would set you back £2.12 in Tesco but it's worth every penny! After all, you get what you pay for, for coffee lovers from here to Timbuktu you'd be doing yourselves a disservice for not buying Kenco! The really smooth coffee and all from brown granules, magic, great, super, smashing!

You can't miss the jar, lovely bright red top (luverley!) and a red label or the green for decaff (urgh I wouldn't touch this, if you are going to have coffee, what's the point of not having the caffeine in it! D'oh)

And you can recycle the jars too! The jar, like me, is extremely versatile, you can use it as a money jar, mini-flower vase, or for storing sugar, salt you name it! The jars are so sweet and cute (call the doctors quick! Brian's in love with a bleeding jar!)

Personally, I think coffee is much tastier without the milk, and ideal for the dieters who are watching the calories. Although I'm sitting here with milk in mine and sweeteners! Coffee without sugar? Unsweetened coffee? Not on your Van Nelly mate!

Kenco is instant and it's the one for me! They boast a superior flavour, expertly roasted to capture the smooth coffee taste and rich aroma! You can email them too at for coffee advice! (sure it's not the CA line - Caffeine's Anonymous!)

So anyone care for a coffee?

Oh and if you invite me over do make sure it's Kenco, or I'll likely split me shirt and turn into the incredible sulk!

Coffee break over time for work girls and boys ;0)
