Keto coffee – Beanies flavour coffee products review
I love coffee and drink it almost every day! Normally I will spend the time and make it using an AeroPress or Cafetiere (check out the best coffee preparation methods). However, sometimes I’m in a rush or at an office so use instant coffee in a pinch. One of the brands I’ve been trialling recently is Beanies Flavour Co, they sell a range of flavoured instant coffee that I’ve been working my way through. This article will be me giving my honest review of the flavours available in the Beanies instant coffee range.
Beanies Flavour Co sale a range of products, including:
Instant coffee – small 50g jars of instant coffee available in a wide range of flavours. Each jar makes around 25 cups of coffee.
Beanies + – flavoured instant coffee fortified with Vitamin D
Sticks – individual sachets of their flavoured instant coffee, great for taste testing all the flavours before committing to a jar.
All in 1 – sachets that contain coffee, flavour and creamer – all in one.
Thick Shakes – flavoured milk powder that can be added to milk to create a shake.
Gifts – a range of products like mugs, travel cups, starter packs and bundles.
Are they keto-friendly?
You’re on a site about keto, so you probably want to know if any of their products are keto-friendly, right? Let’s take a closer look.
Instant coffee – their main product is safe for keto and contains no added sugar. The coffee granules are ‘infused’ with flavour instead of the more common method of coating them. They also don’t contain any of the usual additives like dextrose, fructose, syrups or even artificial sweeteners. In addition, it’s nice to see that they are gluten-free, suitable for people with nut intolerances as well as vegetarians & vegans.
Beanies + – keto-friendly, the only difference between them and their main range is that they are not suitable for vegans.
Sticks – keto-friendly, they are just smaller quantities of their main instant coffee range.
All in 1, Thick Shakes – not suitable for keto, as they contain sugar and other carbohydrates like milk powder.
Beanies coffee flavours review
I have yet to try the complete range of Beanies instant flavoured coffee but here is my review list (so far). Of course, everyone has different tastes so you may like what I can’t stand! Give them try and see.
Rating – each rating is scored out of 5. Higher is better and more likely to buy again. I’ve divided my reviews into three sections (love, ok, dislike).
Review: Hands down absolute favourite. A sweet honeycomb taste and lovely toffee aroma.
Review: Reminds me of the gingerbread flavour but with an added nutty taste. Combines two great flavours into one!
Review: Strong hazelnut aroma and nutty taste.
Review: Nice level of spice and warming flavour. Not too overpowering.
Sticky Toffee Pudding
Review: Pleasant smell and taste but quite weak flavour.
Review: Lovely smell and flavour.
Review: Lovely aroma of chocolate and smooth taste.
Review: Similar to double chocolate but with a sweeter taste.
These flavours are OK and while not perfect, are drinkable.
Review: Strong vanilla taste and aroma that I find a bit too overpowering in a drink.
Review: Reminiscent of biscotti but I find that it has a slight chemical artificial aftertaste that somewhat spoils it.
Review: OK taste but a bit too minty to have as a coffee that often. Also has a somewhat chemical smell.
I would not buy these flavours again, see the individual review for the reason.
Review: Way too pungent and sweet as a coffee.
Review: I normally like coconut flavoured products but it just doesn’t work in a coffee (for me).
White Chocolate & Raspberry
Review: The raspberry aroma is a bit overpowering and the white chocolate taste leaves an odd aftertaste.
Review: I’ve found that whilst on keto, any orange flavoured products taste terrible. I get an overpowering chemical taste that spoils the drink completely.
