If you’re anything like us, a daily coffee is more necessity than luxury, but there’s no reason it can’t be both – as we’ve discovered with this round-up of the very best pre-ground coffees on the market.
While we’re not the biggest fans of instant coffee granules, we’d argue that ground coffee has all the great flavour of a shop-bought brew but without any of the effort involved in grinding your own beans. Hurrah!
It’s worth noting that when coffee is ground, the particles are exposed to air which over time will cause it to lose aroma and hence flavour. For this reason, many people choose to grind their own fresh beans each day. However, if you don’t have the equipment (or time) to do so, these bags of pre-ground coffee will be far superior to instant, and are particularly helpful if you’re making a big pot. Just keep it in an airtight container and drink as quickly as possible.
