Best coffee brands to buy in 2022 UK: Espresso, instant, beans and more

The start of October marks International Coffee Day and on average, two cups of coffee are drunk per day by Brits making it the nation’s favourite drink. Not only is it delicious, it also has several health benefits and recent studies have shown that drinking coffee everyday can help you live longer. Last year, over a billion pounds was spent on coffee, showing just how much the beverage is part of our daily lives.

However, with the cost of living crisis happening in the UK, buying coffee outside can be expensive and because most Brits prefer to drink it in the morning, it’s perfect to make at home and saves money in the long run.

There’s nothing more disappointing than a bad cup of coffee and thankfully there’s a wide variety to choose from including flavourful pumpkin spiced lattés, short espressos, black coffees and more. Depending on how you make coffee, there are several different forms available like easy instant coffees, ground espressos and pod machines. If you’re looking for a coffee machine to use, find a round-up of the best ones here.

Here is some information that can help guide you to buying your favourite at-home coffee with all categories covered including budget roasts, decaf, iced, instant and more.

To enjoy a truly fresh roast, buy whole beans. Fresher and packed with more flavour than ground coffee, you can grind the beans at home and then enjoy instantly. You’ll need to get a coffee grinder if you are buying beans and you can find plenty on Amazon here. Buying a grinder can be an investment and take longer so other forms of coffee like pods or ground coffee are also great options to pick from.

Most shoppers will find either Arabica or Robusta. Arabica is typically pricier but have an incredible acidity and sweet flavour with fruity notes that makes for a rich cuppa. Robusta beans taste nuttier and have more caffeine that Arabica.

Research from Blue Box Coffee showed that most coffee stored in supermarkets have a shelf life between seven and 19 months. It’s safe to drink coffee that’s been stocked for a while, but check the roasting dates on the packaging to ensure freshness. Sasha Pavlovich, co-founder and editor of CoffeeHow.co said: “Right after it’s roasted, coffee begins to change, and over time it becomes stale and less flavourful. After eight days, some of the compounds that give coffee its taste and smell will have decreased by up to 70 percent, leading to coffee that tastes stale.”
