When coffee is fresh, it tastes better. A lot better. That’s why we’ve teamed up with Pact Coffee, to enable you to taste what seriously-fresh coffee tastes like, for just £1.
40 days of thumb-twiddling
The more time that goes by after roasting, the less good the coffee tastes. Just to put that into perspective, supermarket coffee spends about 40 days sitting around, twiddling its thumbs before it gets to you.
Pact Coffee is sent to you within a week of being roasted, which makes all the difference.
Time to take a trip
When signing up for Pact Coffee deliveries, you can activate what is referred to as ‘The Randomiser’, which selects a new coffee for you for each delivery.

Andy Bates, otherwise known as the ‘Pie Man’, is famous in the street food industry as he creates hearty dishes for people on the go. After travelling throughout the UK and America in search of the best street delicacies, he now finds himself in Brazil!
Recognised as one of the most vibrant and colourful countries in South America, Brazil is a nation who embrace food and especially the street food community.
Andy’s new adventure has taken him from the stunning beaches of Brazil to the bustling cities like Rio de Janeiro. Throughout his travels he has experienced some incredible places and people. He threw himself into the diverse culture of the country, but we wanted to find out more! We caught up with one of our favourite chefs about his amazing experience:
I don't like the term "guilt" being associated with food. However, I know a lot of people struggle with food anxiety (especially in the New Year) and I'm also not immune to eating certain things and feeling regret! Pasta, for me, is the biggest area where it's easy to overeat and immediately feel regret.
Whether you’re celebrating this year, or not, the Chinese New Year holiday is the perfect excuse to immerse yourself with Chinese delicacies. But, before you start dreaming about how many dishes you’d like from your local take-away restaurant, why not get yourself involved in the cooking?!
Another food trend set for this year is the theory of ‘healthy cooking at home’ – and what better way than to start this weekend?
It’s official – crisp manufacturers have gone all-out bonkers. With these perfect snacky morsels being a staple in pretty much every household across the world, the competition to produce the most insane flavours has become something that’s addictive as the crisps themselves. From Blueberry flavour from Japan, to Maple Moose flavour courtesy of our Canadian friends, and our very own British Hog Roast, it seems that no stone has been left unturned in the international plight for new combinations. I scoured Pinterest for some of the craziest and here’s what I found.
With restaurants ever changing and more extravagant ingredients used at every turn, food crazes are having a huge influence- whether you are a budding chef or simply love eating out. Our food experiences are changing and it’s time to embrace it.
Last year saw the gourmet burger and pulled pork thrown into the foody spotlight so what’s next for 2014… it’s the experimental sandwich of course!
Gone are the days when serving food on sticks was strictly reserved for fondue, kebabs and cheese and pineapple. Almost overnight, a 70s revival has taken place and now, serving sweet treats like cake, cheesecake, cookies and pies on sticks has become utterly normal, with international chains like Starbucks serving them up to suckers for miniature desserts. Smothered in chocolate, hundreds and thousands, icing or glitter, these bite-sized creations are the epitome of ‘cute’ and have the ability to very quickly bring back memories of doing arts and crafts at school. However, putting together Cookie Monster Cake Pops is far more enjoyable than making naff paper chains, PVA-ing your fingers together and being forced to use left-handed scissors when you’re actually right handed.
We rounded up the ultimate sweet treats on a stick from our favourite food blogs because you totally deserve it. All you need to do is grab some lolly sticks and whip up one of these amazing DIY desserts for when you’re feeling creative.
