    Finding a Good Cup Of Coffee

    I don't know if you boys enjoy a nice cup of coffee in the morning or even throughout the day ? I stopped visiting those High Street
    Places a long time back as I felt it was just overpriced rubbish I was drinking , I invested in a proper stove top coffee pot where you
    put the ground coffee in the top and the water in a separate chamber underneath , I stick it on top of the boat stove or on the gas
    hob and in five minutes its job done .
    The biggest problem after that was finding a really nice strong coffee , honestly there is so much utter rubbish out there and all costing
    up to £6.50 and beyond for 250g . Slowly but surely over the years I have tried them all and in my opinion ILLY is probably the one that
    ticks all the boxes , in fact I think its head and shoulders above all of the others and at £6.50 for a 250g tin at Waitrose you just shrug
    your shoulders and think " well at least I know What I am getting for the money and the others don't bear thinking about . "
    Well this was the wisdom until last night when a girlfriend dragged me into IKEA of all places to look at fitted kitchens , for years I have
    managed largely through being single with no kids to avoid these places , what man wouldn't exchange places with me in an instant ,
    it just bores me speechless . Anyway I digress slightly because I wandered over to the food section , can you believe it a food section
    in IKEA , why hasn't someone down the pub mentioned this fact to me ? In the corner I spot the Coffee Section , I then spot that the
    strong one is in the yellow packaging and is £2.25 for 250g or three packs for the price of two . I instantly thought about all the money
    I have wasted over the years attempting to source my ideal coffee , from William Martyn in Muswell Hill to some fancy place near the
    Derngate in Northampton , from Glasgow to Milton Keynes , in fact the canal must be littered with almost full packs of coffee I have
    hurled at passing Swans in a fit of temper that I have been mugged again .
    Well I picked one up paid for it and departed IKEA , I got home last night couldn't wait to try it and I have to tell you it was simply
    stunningly good , in fact I couldn't tell the difference from the ILLY at £6.50 , it was beautiful beyond words .
    So much so that today I went back to IKEA and bought six packs for a shade over £9.00 taking advantage of their three for two offer ,
    I love it when the working man can make a saving without compromising on quality , both are 100% Arabica , but who would have thought
    it ? Coffee bought from IKEA , £4.25 cheaper than ILLY and every bit as good , strange times
