Brooklands Standard Espresso Roast Coffee Review

I love coffee!

I can’t function as a human being without having at least one cup of coffee in the morning.

A fun fact which I may or may not have mentioned: I used to work as a Coffee Barista!

So I know one or two things when it comes to coffee! And having coffee featured on my blog in the past, this couldn’t be more of a great collaboration!

Therefore, I am pleased to be reviewing my first batch of coffee beans from Liquid Culture.

I’ll be reviewing and tasting some great coffee that Liquid Culture provides me and I get to share my thoughts and honest opinions with you!

The first batch of coffee I was gifted was their Brooklands Standard Espresso Roast. My first impressions of this were that it was going to be a strong tasting and intense coffee which would be suitable for my morning coffee.

After trying it in a few different varieties of coffee drinks, I’ve given it my full, honest review especially for you, my readers.

Brooklands Standard Espresso Roast Coffee

The Brooklands Standard Espresso Roast is a traditional Italian roast and is described as creamy and full-bodied. It’s the perfect blend to wake up in the morning with.

I always love the espresso smell that wafts out of the packaging and this certainly had a very grounded and fresh scent coming from it’s perfectly packaged and sealed coffee bag. I was actually surprised how big the bag was, as it measured 26 inches H and 21 inches W, meaning there were lots of coffee beans to be used.

When I first received the coffee beans, it came perfectly packaged in it’s brown, resealable coffee bag. I wanted to try the coffee in different drink formats so I could compare the different tastes and test how the coffee balances in each drink.

For an espresso, the coffee had a strong body about it. Because I got to taste the coffee without the distraction of any milk, I got the full flavour of the coffee beans doing their work. What started as an intense kick of coffee, slowly became smooth and delectable.

A latte, I found the texture very smooth and the coffee and the milk balanced very well together. Not only was the coffee smooth and subtle in a latte, but I felt it produced a dark chocolate aftertaste – something I hadn’t experienced whilst drinking the coffee in an espresso or cappuccino but did notice this time around.

A flat white is my go-to drink so I was excited to make my own with these coffee beans. I found the kick of the coffee to be quite intense at first sip, but once the coffee rested on my palette for a bit, I got a creamy texture with a slight undertone of toast, making this the perfect wake-me-up-right-now coffee!

The effects after drinking one cup of this coffee left me feeling very buzzed and alert. Almost too buzzed! But I can’t deny that it gives off a strong aroma in every drink I tasted.

Overall, I think this coffee is suitable for everyone’s taste, whether you like your coffee strong, or on the weaker side. It’s been my go-to coffee in the morning at work, making me alert for the day ahead.
