Attention all Coffee Lovers - Puro Brand Fairtrade Coffee

Not all coffee drinkers readers will have probably heard of Puro before as they don't have their own cafes and their products can't be found in supermarkets.  However if you are a coffee drinker, chances are you will have enjoyed Puro Coffee without even realising it. 

Puro Fairtrade Coffee

Every National Trust site uses Puro coffee and restaurants such as Gourmet Burger Kitchen and The Real Greek, large offices such as Innocent Drinks (the smoothie company), opticians like Vision Express, hairdressers such as Headmasters and golf clubs like Wentworth all serve Puro coffee.
More about Puro Coffee:
Through the Puro brand, alongside Fairtrade, we want to communicate the threat to rainforest and the need to preserve it. After oil, coffee is the second most traded commodity in the world, so imagine the amount of coffee consumed every day all over the world.  By putting messages on our cups and sharing our stories and videos with our clients and consumers, we think we can help make a difference.  We also want to show other companies that people and planet are just as important as profit.

Puro is committed to Saving the Rainforest
They are a brand from a company called Miko who was created in 2005 and have been roasting coffee in Belgium for 212 years.

Miko have 9000m2 of solar panels on the roof of their building to generate their own electricity.
In 2007 whilst some of the Puro Fairtrade Coffee team were trekking through the Puro Ecuadorian Rainforest Reserve, some new species of orchid were discovered.  One of these orchids was later named after them.

In 2008, together with Sir David Attenborough, we launched a webcam in the rainforest to the media.

Miko won a business charity award last year for the partnership between Puro Fairtrade Coffee and World Land Trust (we have gone on to help judge the 2013 Business Charity Awards)

Located within Choc√≥, Colombia, the 124 acre Puro Poison Frog Reserve is the only protected location in the world for the critically endangered and close to extinct Golden Poison Frog.  Indigenous tribes still use their poison on their arrows and spears for hunting.

Since I'm not a coffee drinker the tasting was left down to Paul (the husband) to taste the coffees sent to us.  Verdict - he loved them all.
In his opinion there wasn't a clear favorite and everyone was a winner!
Now for my two penneth - the Hot chocolate was truly lovely, just as a hot chocolate drink should be.

Thank you to Tamara and Puro for sending me this lovely range of products to try.
 All opinions and thoughts are my own.  I was not required to write a positive review.  I only ever post reviews on products I like the look of, and therefore would buy myself.
