If you know me, I'm an avid coffee drinker; be it in the form of a classic espresso, French press or traditional filtered-style. It can be daunting at times when you wake up in the morning and realize that you've ran out of coffee. You then have to make your way out of the house just to get your fix from your local coffee bar.
However, I think I have found a solution to this. Introducing Perk!
Perk is a specialty coffee brand founded by 2 coffee lovers, Paul and Serena. Having met and lived in Africa, they started their coffee journey in Kenya by developing an appreciation of its delicious and fruity coffee grown in the beautiful highland plantations in the country.
They are a fully online-based coffee provider that offers its customers a choice to purchase their coffee in the form of wholebean, ground, drip bags and coffee pods.
What makes them unique is that they have an excellent and intuitive website for customers to subscribe and get their coffee delivered right to their doorstop.
You can choose the type of coffee you want and how often you want them to be delivered. Plus, with a subscription, you get an additional discount for all purchases and there is zero delivery charges! Perk will even remind you on your next delivery before you run out of coffee; perfect for busy city-dwellers who don't have the time to think about replenishing their stock.
It's an awesome way to ensure you that you never run out of coffee ever! And the best part is that the subscription can be cancelled at anytime with no extra fees; in case you want to take a break or are travelling for a while.
They have 6 different kinds of coffee to choose from, roasted on a weekly basis and sent out to customers within 48 hours of roasting, ensuring that you get the freshest coffee possible.
I sampled 3 of their coffee offerings above; namely the Intrepid, Urbanite and Sidamo. Each has a different profile that suit different coffee drinkers. Allow me to explain.
Starting out with the Sidamo, its a delicious roast with lavender, peach and wild berry flavours. Perfect those who like their coffee to be on the fruity side. It's also less 'intimidating' for new coffee drinkers as the fruity taste makes it easy and pleasant to drink.
On the other end of the spectrum lies the Intrepid, a bold and earthy coffee roast with hints of dark chocolate and big / heavy mouthfeel. This is for coffee drinkers who appreciate a strong blend that will guarantee to keep you awake for hours.
My personal favourite is the Urbanite, a sweet and creamy blend that sits in between the fruity Sidamo and bold Intrepid. This is a good middle ground roast for someone who is looking for a familiar yet delicious blend that you can drink all day.
Ground Drip Bags
If you don't like the idea of grinding your own beans, they also offer their delicious coffee in the form of drip bags. All you need is a mug and hot water and you're good to go. Its small form factor will allow you to bring this to work or to your favourite vacation spot and ensure you get the same taste profile everywhere you go.
Or if you have a pod coffee machine at home, they've also got you covered. You can purchase their coffee in cute little coffee pods that are also Nespresso-compatible. Perfect to spice things up at home.
