Also known as the best coffee I have ever had. And I'm not even exaggerating one tiny bit.
"At Pact we are on a mission to get the UK drinking better coffee by making incredible, freshly roasted coffee accessible to everyone. Our world-class beans are bought from dedicated farmers, hand-roasted in London and shipped within 7 days. Our coffee isn’t ground until the last possible moment before being sent straight to you to enjoy."
Says it all really doesn't it??
Let me set the scene for you....Saturday morning. 11am. The flat is freshly cleaned (Friday night cleaning for the win), I’ve spent a few hours reading my book (the only perk of my body not letting me have a lay in), Goblin is in super snuggle mode and because I'm an awesome girlfriend I decided to make Ben's favourite lemon and poppy seed pancakes for breakfast.
I know right, my wife points are sky high at the moment.
Whilst John Mayer kept me company with his dreamy voice, I boiled the kettle, cooked the last few pancakes, busted out the cafetiere and set the table.
Multi-tasking is my jam.
Breakfast dished up, we brew the coffee. We chose the 'Finca San Antonio' blend for our first time on the recommendation of a friend but honestly though, who would say no to this....'Well layered chocolate nut and berry notes, with a sweet, earthy undertone of caramel, light acidity and a chocolatey smooth aftertaste'??
Yeah, didn't think so.
A few aaaaahs and mmmmmmhhhh's later we dig in and slurp away.
Freaking hell people. Words on this page don't convey how delicious that coffee was. I even had it just by itself....and that's super rare for my 'lets milk up this coffee to the max' usual coffee preferences.
So because I love to share I've teamed with Pact to offer you the chance to get your hands on a 250g bag of their coffee for just a pound!!!
Not even joking. £1.
All you have to do is go to www.pactcoffee.com and enter BALHAMLIFE to get the deal.
Pop in your details, choose your coffee, set your preferences and in no time at all it will be shipped to you (usually the next day). You can cancel any time, change your delivery frequency, skip a bag, order extra bags and even take a coffee break if you’re going away or feel like a month off the caffeine...it's really flexible and totally worth trying out.
Our next batch arriving just in time for December will be the 'Zamorana' blend. 'Toasted marshmallows, dark chocolate, earthy, buttery popcorn, maple syrup'.
Bring it on.
And this picture is making it's way into this post because it's utterly adorable.
