Press'd is a new range of pure Arabica concentrated coffee in little squeezable bottles. Made for coffee lovers who are pressed for time, each pocket-sized bottle makes 16 cups of coffee - simply squeeze and add water. I received two Press'd samples to review; Press'd Colombian Arabica Coffee and Press'd Caramel Arabica Coffee.
As expected the coffee is super easy to make. A quick squeeze adds a good amount of the glossy and thick coffee liquid. I added hot water (200ml is recommended, otherwise it will be too watery or need an extra squeeze) and a little almond milk. Even though I was excited to try the Press'd concept I have to admit I was a little sceptical as to how good the coffee would taste. Thankfully, I was pleasantly surprised by just how enjoyable I found both varieties. The coffee has a lovely, smooth flavour that is quite rich and strong. It didn't froth up like my usual coffee does but it still has a satisfying flavour that is similar to a filter coffee.
The Press'd Caramel is made with natural flavouring rather than a sugary syrup, so it's not too cloying or sweet. The caramel flavour is quite subtle at first but builds nicely with each sip. I don't usually enjoy flavoured instant coffees at all but this one was very enjoyable. The added flavour does not overpower the actual coffee itself which is how I prefer it.
Overall, I was impressed by both varieties of Press'd Arabica Coffee. The squeezy bottle is really handy and I can think of about a million scenarios where it would be useful!
