Moving Beans Coffee : Review

I am a coffee lover, I never take Tea when I go out or at home.

I have a Nespresso machine, with many different types of coffee which I use on a daily basis.

In the past I have tried several other brands of coffee pods, but to be honest the taste was not good or the pod never really popped right and only a drip or two (sometimes nothing) came out….so it was a waste of money.

I recently decided to try Moving Beans, which are compatible with my Nespresso machine. I looked these guys up to see what reviews they got, and to find out more information on the company.

The company started off as a small family business and grew from then, their aim was to reduce waste and the product was enjoyed and the big part the packaging was good for the environment.

I liked this idea, so I gave them a shot.

The Packaging :

As you can see the boxes are coloured different, so you can tell the difference between the coffee. The designs for me were very nice, and on the back of each package it told you a little about the type of bean used e.g.

Kenyan : A milder roast with a deliciously smooth crema, zero bitterness and warm chocolate aromas

The Pods :

They look very similar to Nespresso pods, and the best part they are biodegradable so environmentally friendly.

I was a little hesitant looking at these, as I hoped when I put them in my machine they would pop and I would get a good amount of coffee.

The cost :

For a pack of 10 its normally £3.50, similar to other pods which was good.

This for me was a good price, and if I liked what I tasted I will be ordering more.

Time To Taste…..

I decided to try the Kenyan one first, and popped the pod in and clicked start.

I heard a nice pop followed by a nice amount of coffee pouring out in to my cup….this was a good start.

The coffee looked good, and had a nice head….next I smelled it and yeah very good. It had a nice strong smell, and this was something the other brands I tried didn’t have.

Now I tasted it…..very good!!!!

I was very impressed, the flavours were nice to start with and the after taste was just as nice.

I tried the other 2 types, and just like this one very nice and the flavours were perfect.

Overall :

I am very impressed with this product, all the pods burst perfectly and allowed the coffee to flow nicely in to the cup. The taste from all 3 beans, was just as nice as the Nespresso ones.

My only complaint would, if I was to take the pods out the box and put them in a glass jar for display. I wouldnt be able to tell the difference between the pods, as the colours are all the same. They should maybe consider changing the colour of the top of the pod, to match the boxes e.g Kenyan would have red.

If you have had a bad experience with other available Nespresso alternatives, then please do check these guys out as I was very impressed and will be ordering again from these guys.

I didn’t know what duck dish to try so I asked the waitress, and she recommended this so I went for it.

This was very nice, and with the sauce even nicer.

This is another dish that I could easily have again, but the wings are still my favourite and I am sure will be hard to beat.
