Press’d is the first 100% pure coffee concentrate offering a genuine coffee experience without the hassle of brewing it yourself. Press’d coffee is brewed using a low temperature method which helps preserve both the flavour and the aroma of the coffee beans. All you need is hot water and Press’d! That’s it, the coffee is ready for your enjoyment!
Currently Press’d comes in three flavours:
All three of them contain 100% Arabica beans. The flavoured Press’d have an addition of a natural flavouring but that is all… nothing else was squeezed into the Press’d!
For someone who loves coffee, I found these little bottles very intriguing. With a healthy dose of scepticism I asked for some samples to be shipped to me… I truly wanted to give them a go but I wasn’t holding my breath or even having any great expectations. Well, it turns out I was wrong!
Press’d offers a truly enjoyable experience. I would even go so far as stating that I prefer it to my everyday instant coffee and I would put it in line with my more special filtered coffee. The difference is… to make my filtered coffee I need my coffee machine… I need a coffee pod (which actually costs more per cup than a Press’d) and I need more time as the water in my machine heats up much slower than it would take me to boil a kettle… so on balance Press’d wins!
Each 48ml pot holds enough coffee for 16 servings in a 200ml cup and it has a RRP of £2.99. At present you can find it via Wholefoods and Ocado but soon it will be available across the UK.
In addition to using it just as a coffee I believe it would be very useful in baking… no more fake coffee flavourings or spending precious time reducing coffee to make its flavour more concentrated… now I can simple add some Press’d. I have a few ideas floating around my head for some coffee based cakes so I am sure sooner or later mysteriously, a new coffee flavour cake recipe will be appearing on the blog.
I usually don’t share food reviews but I think that Press’d deserved it. It offers a lovely rich flavour, it’s super convenient and I just love the whole idea of it. Now, next time we travel home to Poland and find we have stopped on a German autobahn during the middle of the night when all the good coffee places are shut, instead of spending a small fortune on a cup of black liquid hardly resembling coffee, we can simply get some hot water and use Press’d creating a proper brew on the go! Not an everyday occurrence agreed but in principle the same thing could be true when driving to Chigwell, less the autobahn obviously.
Hmm thirsty, think I might just make myself a cup!
