  • In summary, I would not recommend Co-operative Fairtrade Rich Roast Instant Granules, but I would point out that there are other coffees in the Co-operative Fairtrade range that are much nicer

      This brand of instant coffee is not only completely ethical, but it is extremely cheap at just 84p for 100g. The Co-operative is a network of businesses that pride themselves on being socially responsible. This coffee sold in Co-operative convenience stores is therefore a Fairtrade approved product which, as the label says, “Guarantees a better deal for Third World Countries”.

      So far so


      good, but the taste of this coffee is absolutely horrible. I would say that it seems to be of medium strength, with absolutely no body to it at all, and a revolting aftertaste that makes me grimace. It says on the label that each serving contains 60mg of caffeine, which is a little on the low side so it may be that ...

      • it is lacking in caffeine. It is lacking something anyway. I would not say that this was a coffee of decent quality.

        I drink a lot of coffee, but I am not a snob when it comes to labels, so I will quite happily buy one of the cheap brands as long as they taste OK. But, this was just a little

        too cheap so I did not have high hopes that it would be drinkable.

        In summary, I would not recommend Co-operative Fairtrade Rich Roast Instant Granules, but I would point out that there are other coffees in the Co-operative Fairtrade range that are much nicer. I would recommend you try another coffee in their range if you want an ethical, inexpensive coffee that tastes good too!
