Lincoln & York's 'Bags of Flavour'
Lincoln & York has expanded its coffee offering with the launch of ‘Bags of Flavour’, three coffee bag options available in a blend, single origin and a decaff.
‘Bags of Flavour’ bring a fresh and convenient solution to enjoying premium coffee on-the-go without hassle, said the company in its latest Blog announcing the move.
“Capturing the nostalgia of a tea bag, with all the characteristics such as speed and convenience, and opening up avenues for premium offerings in a variety of flavours, should create a trend worth trialling,” it said.
And in answer to the question, what makes Lincoln & York’s coffee bags better than instant, it responded: “Our beans are roasted, ground, packed and sealed, to lock in premium freshness and flavour. This results in our coffee bags being able to offer quality coffee in a convenient way – maximising the taste whilst minimising the hassle usually associated with a barista style coffee, ground coffee or coffee pods.”
The house blend collates the best of Brazil, India and Sumatra, for a full bodied, rich, dark chocolate taste with a moreish finish, it continued. “On top of that, we have our specialist single origin, Colombian blend providing a more fruitier and nutty taste. Finally, we have a decaffeinated blend which champions a silky smooth body with milk chocolate sweetness.”
The coffee bag can be personalised to include a company logo and are available in a selection of colours and finishes. All of the coffee bags are 7.5g and ordering options are flexible and include being able to bag up your own blend.

Baci Perugina intensely ruby
Baci Perugina is the latest sweet treat to be wrapped in ruby chocolate, following the introduction of KitKat Ruby earlier this year.
The pink Baci Perugina Limited Edition is made with chocolate derived from ruby cocoa beans, which has an intense berry-fruitiness taste without the addition of any flavour or colour.
The traditional recipe with its soft gianduia filling and a crispy hazelnut in its centre now comes in a pink chocolate coating, creating a product with a unique taste.
The new Baci Perugina Limited Edition is part of Nestlé’s drive to set trends and use innovation to bring new, exciting products to consumers everywhere.
The Baci Perugina Limited Edition is already available in Italy and it will be soon on sale in the United Kingdom.
Ruby chocolate was created by Swiss chocolatier Barry Callebaut, which spent over a decade developing this innovative flavour. Nestlé was the first launch this fourth type of chocolate - after dark, milk and white - to consumers worldwide through KitKat.
