Delights from Albert Menes & Cafedirect

{Product Review}

Something arrived at my door step last month and it happens to be Violet Fig Jam and Matzo Bread from the House of Albert Menes, and Cafedirect Freeze-dried Medium Roast instant coffee.

The House of Albert Ménès was founded in 1921, famous for over 350 French fine artisan foods, made from original classic French recipes

Cafédirect is the UK’s first and largest 100% Fairtrade beverage brand. Cafédirect also has a hot beverage range that includes 100% Fairtrade tea and hot chocolate. The Medium Roast Freeze-Dried instant coffee from Cafédirect is a perfect formula of balancing the sweet and chocolaty Arabica beans from South America, with the all-rounder beans from the highlands of Central America, and the vibrant bold-bodied East African Natural Robusta coffee beans. Carefully selected for roasting to a pleasing medium 3 scale, and freeze-dried to retain its natural goodness

The Matzo Bread is an unleavened bread traditionally eaten by Jews during the week-long Passover holiday.

 The Violet Fig Jam is made from carefully selected whole figs grown in Soilles-Pont in Var, south of France. The figs are peeled and cooked the rustic way by the loving hands of French artisans, in an open copper cauldron, like all other jams from the House of Albert Menes, preserving the natural taste of the whole fruit

I brought the coffee to office, just add hot water and tada~~  a cup of hot coffee for an instant pick-me-up in the office. The coffee has a pleasant aroma but as I'm not much of a coffee person, the coffee is a little too bitter for my liking when taken without sugar & creamer. The colleagues find the coffee very fragrant & smooth

The Matzo Bread has the crispiness of crackers and fragrance of toasted bread. However, it is a little bland on it's own. The jam on the other hand is quite sweet and has chunks of fig flesh in every scoop. Pairing them both makes it a very nice combination. Great fro tea breaks in office =)

Cafédirect Freeze-dried Medium Roast Instant Coffee is priced at $10.90 per 100g jar and is available at major supermarkets like Cold Storage, FairPrice Finest, Giant Hyper, Jasons and Market Place while The Violet Fig Jam ($18) and the Matzo Bread ($9) are sold at Market Place at Paragon, Raffles City and Tanglin Mall, Jasons the Gourmet Grocer @ ION Orchard and Sentosa Quayside as well as Robinsons Orchard

Thanks Mileage Communications for the for sending over the yummy delights!
