Product Details: Brown Bear New Latin Ground Coffee  c/o


WHY Did I like IT?

First up it’s a dark roast, the darker the better in my opinion and it has so much kick and flavour! I normally swear by my Italian blends when it comes to freshly ground coffee but trying the Brazilian blends has definitely opened my mind to different depths of flavour. New Italian is actually a mix from Brazil, Colombia and Honduras, so you can see my excitement when it comes to a good mixture of flavours here from these countries. It has a very smooth consistency and the depth of flavour is nice and rich but still light on the palette.

It makes the perfect afternoon coffee, but I personally prefer this first thing in the morning for that strong kick to get me through the day; with that being said I only have one cup of coffee a day so the stronger the better in my opinion. It’s very dark so if you prefer a lighter coffee, opt away from this! I normally mix mine with cream or jersey milk for full flavour and a beautiful creamy finish but you can use regular almond/oat/cow milk off course. What I love about this is the stand out flavours and the almost chocolatey aroma that soon disperses to a distinct nutty flavour, with a natural hint of sweetness.

It’s just the perfect blend that changes in terms of flavour and aroma and even uplifts you for the day, before taking your first sip. I actually can’t wait to try more from Brown Bear as I was utterly blown away as to how great the blend was and how much ground coffee you receive in the packet. I was always a huge fan of Taylor’s coffee and always will be, but Brown Baer has definitely taken pride of place in my coffee cupboard, and it’s always great to mix things up as you can always freeze ground coffee to use at a later date, thus keeping it fresh. I have been somewhat expanding my coffee horizons and always enjoy trying new blends and brands but still staying loyal to the ones I love, I always enjoy the Whittard Java coffee, but it can come up slightly expensive when used daily.



I love it!



I would normally use one tablespoon of ground coffee and add it to my four cup cafetière, and let it steep for around 3-5 minutes. You can add up to four tablespoons if your serving up for four people so basically just add one tablespoon per person. After brewing, I will then strain the coffee and add it straight to my coffee cup with three teaspoons of brown sugar and cream or jersey milk.

  • Brown bear, how cute!!! I wouldn’t buy this because of the package, it doesn’t look appealing to me, sort of too girly and childish for my taste. But cute, nothing to add:)
