Blue Coffee Box Subscription Club - Review and Reader Discount

Blue Coffee Box is a UK subscription club for speciality coffee lovers. Each month, they send a letterbox-friendly blue (unsurprisingly) box containing three bags of freshly roasted coffee with tasting notes and information of the origin and farm where it is produced.

Three new roasters are introduced every month from the top of the UK’s 300 or so craft roasters to hand-roast the beans. These are fresh roasted every week and members can select how they are prepared; whole beans or ground for cafetiere, dripper or espresso.

I love that the boxes are letterbox-friendly meaning you don't have to be home to receive your box.

I'm not a coffee drinker but Paul (the husband) tells me this is really good coffee. He says the coffee tastes fresh and that's because it is; all Blue Coffee Box coffees are freshly roasted each week. I also think the price isn't too bad at all when you consider how expensive big brands of roasted coffee is in the supermarket and let's face it they are probably roasted and packages weeks if not months ago!

Membership:
Costs £17.99 per month (or less for 3, 6 or 12-month advanced payment). Members can cancel, pause, skip or upgrade any time.

Truffle Risotto Recipe and Le Petit Ballon Wine Club Review

Le Petit Ballon is an online wine club that delivers two bottles of wine straight to your door every month. The wine arrives perfectly packaged so the wine is well protected and ensures it reaches you without any breakages.

Each month you'll receive two bottles of wine carefully selected Former Sommelier Chef at The Ritz.
Tasting advice and super tips. You'll also receive a copy of The Gazette; the magazine that tells you everything there is to know about wine and how to taste the wines in your box.

I don't want to sound like an advert but I really do believe Le Petit Ballon is excellent. I think it's great that you can cancel at any time if you want to; there's nothing worse than feeling you can't back out of something so that's good to know.

The wines in the November box which I received pair perfectly with dishes made with Truffles such as Truffle Risotto.


You wont find the wines from Le Petit Ballon in any supermarket and I love that you can buy a gift card for however many months subscription you want to buy (3/6 or 12 months) and send as a gift; perfect with Christmas coming up. Or of course you can subscribe to a monthly wine box for yourself 😊 The wines in the November box are Mas du Soleilla and Domaine Bérénas.

Le Petit Ballon have an offer on at the moment which is 15% off all gift cards until 19th November just use the code WINEGIFT15 at the checkout.

Or readers of this blog can get £10 off first month subscription by entering GLUG10 at checkout.
Offer is valid until 30th November 2017

New - GU Mousse Fusions Review

NEW to the GU puds range are Mousse Fusions. Now regular readers of this blog will know I'm not a one for desserts but Paul (the husband) loves desserts.

Of course I did have a taste since it's me writing about them and I have to say the Chocolate and Toffee Mousse Fusions are really rather nice indeed and could even convert me to eating chocolate; now they must be good!

Chocolate and Toffee GU Mousse Fusions
Seriously chocolatey, rich and creamy topping but with a chocolate and toffee mousse underneath.

As they are new to the market I had a bit of trouble actually getting them since our Tesco is quite small. Waitrose did but only had two of the three varieties as they'd sold out of the Mango and Passionfruit so I can't comment on those. By the fact that they'd sold out I'd say they must be popular; I have to say they do sound good.
