Product Description

Bold, boisterous, with a full body and sustained balance of flavours, it keeps a certain caramelly charm and shows a slightly spiced edge. Classic Blend does not fade or grow bitter on the finish nor does it short-change the tongue: pick it, always for perfect drinking pleasure.

Coffee beans of the highest quality are grown in the rich soils of Latin America, Africa and the Caribbean, at altitudes of up to 6000ft (1830m). They are then medium roasted and blended by experts to give you the highest quality coffee taste.

This 500g tub is ideal for offices or workplaces, or if you just can't get enough of it!

I like that I can order a large 500g tub of Fairtrade coffee, although a bit conflicted as the tub is not easily recyclable.

Great value for money and very drinkable for instant. The empty tin will be handy too.

Great tasting instant. I buy it for home use and for the school staffroom. Just wish the container could be easily recycled.

Q: RE the above, does this product contain nuts. Description on tin says hint of nutty caramel. We need this information for people with nut allergies.

A: Hi, there are no nuts in this coffee, "nutty caramel" is a term to describe the flavour only. Robyn.

Q: Is the container recyclable?

A: Hi there, Thanks for your query. This is the information I have had from Cafe Direct recently regarding their 500g tubs. 'In response to your question, the lid, bottom of the tub and the seal are all recyclable in their current form. The tub itself is not, however if the lining is torn out then the two separate components are recyclable as they are paper and cardboard. At Cafédirect we are currently in the process of reviewing our packaging across to ensure that it is as environmentally friendly as possible.' I hope this helps, Kind regards.
