Coffee Detail

Bold Pods

Our aim for the Bold was to recreate the versatility of a Roman espresso shot. Enjoyable taken as black. But powerful and able to punch through milk perfect for a wide variety of different drinks. Add a little milk to lighten the shot for a perfect flat white. Or Use the Lungo button with a dash of warm frothed milk for a perfect latte. This punchy all-rounder extracts well from 40ml to 110ml.

Exotic Pods

The Exotic range is always about discovery – finding new flavours . This wonderful light and complex Peruvian is best served at 40ml without milk. It’s light and tremendously complex - peachy, creamy and refreshing. The Exotic range is always about discovery – finding new flavours .

Rare Pods

These farms are the oldest coffee plantations in the Brazilian Cerrado region and remain amongst the best coffee producing areas in the country. High altitude terroirs provide unique flavours and aroma profiles.This farm is packed with historical accolades, including: Brazil's most sustainable farm & a Cup of Excellence Finalist.

Cortado Pods

A mainstay of café culture in Spain and Portugal. A Cortado uses less milk than a flat white and a fraction of the milk used in a latte. This powerful shot bridges the gap between black coffee and milk-based drinks. Pour the short button twice for 80ml then add warm milk to taste. This coffee has the most caffeine in our range, so provides the perfect morning kick.

Excellent introduction

The starter pack of coffee pods is an excellent introduction to what is obviously a very good range of high quality coffees.

Starter pack of coffee pods

Good quality coffee

Great starter pack - will be back!

It was great to have a range of beans to try and much better value (and greener) than buying take away espresso. I found a couple of flavours I really enjoyed so will be back for more once the starter pack runs out. Packaged in an eco-friendly way, which is important to me. Arrived quickly, good communication on delivery expectations. Works absolutely fine in my Nespresso machine.

Pretty Good

Great to be able to try the different varieties. Easy to use and good coffee so far - not yet tried all. Would repurchase. Can't comment on compostability as too early, and that is the main reason for purchase.

Great little pods

Great coffee. A nice touch being biodegradeable so can pop them in the food waste bin knowing it won’t end up in landfill.

A small gripe is the strength/taste of the coffee is very diluted if you use an espresso pod on lungo setting. Most other espresso pods I’ve used still taste fine in lungo setting but the Roar Gill espresso pods taste very diluted if you don’t use is under espresso setting on your machine. I won’t take stars off for that reason as espresso pods are espresso not lungo but worth noting.
