Griffiths Coffee - Product Review and Giveaway

Since having my own coffee machine at home I have really come to appreciate the taste of good coffee. I grind my own beans so they are fresh and fragrant, fill the coffee maker up by hand, press the button and patiently wait for the coffee to come trickling out of the machine and into my cup.

So when Griffiths Coffee sent me some coffee to try as well as offering a Giveaway pack for my coffee loving readers I was counting down the days for my taste testing to begin!

 
 
Griffiths Coffee was established in 1879 in Melbourne and impressively still remains an 100% Australian owned coffee roaster business. The coffee is sourced and imported from South America, Asia and Africa and the coffee beans are shipped back to Melbourne where they are roasted, blended and packaged for sale to coffee lovers all over Australia. 
 
Griffiths Coffee produce Just Fair Coffee and is the only Fair Trade organic coffee on the market that comes in a reusable and fully recyclable tin. The tins are really cool and would make great holders for everything from pens to flowers. The coffee keeps so much fresher in a tin too and I don't have coffee grains scattered all over my kitchen like I seem to with packet coffee! 
 
 
Another clever idea is for anyone who wants to know where in the world your coffee comes from you can find out on the Just Fair Coffee website by tracing the source of the beans.

All you do is type in the used by code on the tin and it will show you where the beans came from and what initiatives are supported with the purchase of that coffee. It's good to know you are supporting the countries the coffee is grown in and the farmers received a fair price and treatment for their product.
  
While I usually grind my own beans, my coffee grinder is currently broken so I opted to try the ground coffee. Now, let's get this taste test happening shall we!


I'm mostly an espresso girl or as us Aussie's refer to it a short black. That little shot of coffee goodness gets me up and going first thing in the morning and I don't even have sugar in mine as I find it takes away from the flavour and intensity of the coffee taste. I tried the Just Fair Organic Espresso which smelt amazing and had a strong roasted flavour and a lovely layer of crema on top which is the sign of a damn good coffee!

 

On the weekends when I'm home renovating and DIY-ing I usually need a coffee pick me up late afternoon to get me through to the evening. For this I had a double shot of the Just Fair Organic Decaffeinated which again came out with a lovely crema on top and when stirred went nice and dark. This blend had a more subtle roasted flavour, a smooth taste and was easy to drink.
 
 
 
Now for the fun part, thanks to Griffiths Coffee I have 5 x 250g tins of Just Fair Coffee valued at $65 to giveaway to one lucky reader.
