Ethical Product Review: Cafedirect Machu Picchu Fresh Ground Coffee – 227g

Nutty, mellow, chocolatey – many words have tried to capture the essence of this delicious Machu Picchu coffee. It contains only hand-picked Arabica beans, expertly roasted to yield their fulsome flavour. As well as meeting the exacting Fairtrade standards, this coffee is also certified by the UK Soil Association showing that it meets the European standards for Organic Coffee. It is certified free from the use of fertilisers and pesticides.

‘Great coffee is a combination of many things – the land, the customs we inherit, the climate and the market. Fair prices have transformed not only my community but our coffee too. Try it – I’m sure you’ll agree. ‘ Guillermo Aguilar, Coffee grower, COCLA, Peru.

The coffee is a slightly dark roast with a delicious aroma and taste that has hints of nut and caramel. A classy coffee brew in anybody’s cup.

Cafedirect Machu Picchu Fresh Ground Coffee Review:

Machu Picchu is a decent all rounder that is never too harsh yet is always flavoursome. Roasted dark enough to be robust, it’s a coffee I’d recommend to both novices and experts. If you want something with a little more kick, try Cafedirect’s robusta beans.

The low price of this coffee is very attractive. Fairtrade accredited, organic and certified free from the use of pesticides, Cafedirect’s Machu Picchu is also created by a co-operative of hundreds of small producers. Don’t be put off by the ‘Centre of the Galaxy’ slogan – the coffee is actually grown in Peru.

There are stronger and smoother roasts available, but for me the medium roast of this coffee is just right – with a wonderful sweet aroma and a slightly nutty taste, it’s perfect in the morning with a dash of milk.

Machupicchu Coffee Review:

The coffee has progressed since I first had it. It has a milder flavor not so overwhelming and a richer taste. You can try it if you didn’t like it before.

The main positive for this organic coffee is that it is also shade grown and does not need to be reforested. As a result, it is cheaper for the producer – hence we can have this award-winning quality coffee at the price we do. You could say it is organic AND fairtrade – a rare combination.

It is also 100% Rainforest Alliance certified as well as Fairtrade, so that you can feel good about drinking it. Problem is that not all of Cafedirect’s products are certified Fairtrade so check for them in the Fairtrade section when you’re choosing.

Machu Picchu is a uniform medium roast with a slightly sweet, nutty vanilla taste. The smell is natural with no added essences or flavours. Machu Picchu is also nice and fresh as the packaging is in a foil-lined bag to keep the coffee as fresh as possible. This coffee grinds and brews rather well.

Cafedirect Machu Picchu Fresh Ground Coffee Review:

Machu Picchu coffee is a light roast coffee with about half the caffeine of a typical Italian espresso, and is an award winning blend. This is a nice medium roast coffee, certified organic and fair trade coffee that can be drunk black or with a dash of milk.

Cafedirect’s Machu Picchu beans grown in the Peru’s Coffee Coast region from beans of two varieties of long-billed Arabica. This is a lighter, more aromatic coffee than what is normally found in the usual bag of ground coffee.

Cafedirect’s Machu Picchu coffee is an award winning blend of coffee grown in the Peru’s Coffee Coast region from beans of two varieties of long-billed Arabica. This is a lighter, more aromatic coffee than what is used in your standard bag of ground. As a result, the flavour is milder, smooth, and you can still taste the flavours of the coffee.

The only problem is that if you want a packet of this coffee, you will need to shell out the £10.49 it costs at the time of this writing. Still, if you drink coffee regularly, this is an excellent value and is Fair Trade and Organic certified as well.

Overall, I am very pleased with the taste of the Machu Picchu coffee and for the price, I feel it is well worth it. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a well-rounded coffee that is not too harsh, even for people who don’t drink coffee often as this is an excellent coffee to try.

The flavour of the coffee s very mellow. It’s a kinda vanilla creme coffee but without the richness of a creme coffee. Bit of a challenge to brew as it’s very fine which means making a good cup can be a bit hit and miss, unless you have a way of controlling the grind size more precisely. If you need a decent daily cup of coffee I’d advise trying quite a lot of different makes and then settle for a brand – rather than buying a random mix of brands.

Better than Starbucks.
