lyons coffee bagsIt’s been five years since I’ve drunk caffeine, but I still find a pick-me-up at the bottom of a coffee cup. That’s why I was intrigued to try out Lyons coffee bags.

I’d never had coffee in a bag but as a big fan of simplicity, convenience and anything that will keep my work surfaces clean and tidy; these sounded ideal for me! Why is it that coffee granules get EVERYWHERE but in the mug..?

Tending to buy my coffee from a supermarket, unless it is a special occasion, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I noticed the bags were available online from lots of bulk order sites including Amazon.¬†However I buy many things in bulk, like loo roll and toiletries.

I wanted the quality to be just as good and it was even better!

It’s not instant coffee as you need to let it brew for 3-4 minutes. However, it tastes so much fresher than instant coffee. I was surprised when Lyons said they did a decaf coffee in a bag too. Normally decaf anywhere seems like too much of an inconvenience for people. That’s why I often stick to my thrifty cuppas from my flask. NotSoThriftyDad really enjoyed his No.3 Rich and full bodied whilst I kept the decaf to myself.

Being roasted and packed in the UK was a bonus.

I’m going to be working from a different location soon with a slightly longer commute than to my Mac in the kitchen. That means I will be able to use my flask daily en route to work. I’m happy to say that Lyons will make those journeys much more enjoyable as I sip my coffee in peace (once the boys have been dropped at nursery!)

In a new office it can be unclear what the arrangements are with the tea fund. I’ll be making my life much easier (and cheaper, naturally) by having the option of using my Lyons coffee stash from the bottom of my handbag. Safe in the knowledge that a pot of granules hasn’t escaped and ruined the leather!

You even get an added feel good factor.

Every time you buy a box of Lyons coffee, they make a donation to Project Waterfall. This is a charity that provides fresh water and sanitation to coffee growing communities globally. You can find out more about Project Waterfall here.
