Rombouts Coffee Classics:
There are things which make me feel so nostalgic. Rombouts coffee one cup filters take me right back to my childhood. My mother used to make fresh coffee in a saucepan. She’d lightly heat the coffee grounds, then pour over nearly boiling water and allow the mixture to brew for a minute or two. Next, she’d use a metal spoon drawn across the grounds, which by then had floated to the top, to settle them. Finally, the whole mixture was sieved through a special fine-meshed sieve into a warmed jug. And, that was it.
Sometimes it worked really well, but I don’t think mum ever measured so on many occasions the coffee was far too weak or far too strong.
Then, along came Rombouts. The perfect solution for those bridge parties and dinners that mum, as the doctor’s wife, used to have to cater for. She loved the individual filters – we even had a set of six special cups. We loved them too, mostly because we liked peeking into the filter to see if the coffee was ready, but also because it took the guesswork out of mum’s coffee making. We only used them on special occasions – they were for treats.
Rombouts is a family owned and run coffee company that was founded in Belgium in 1896. And, in addition to the single cup filters, they make and distribute a whole range of coffee related products which you can buy from leading supermarkets and delicatessens, or direct from their website. I’ve been trying out some of the fresh ground coffee as well as the one cup filters and I love both. The original coffee blend is soft and mellow, perfect for drinking in the morning with breakfast but also good for those who like a milder after dinner coffee. All their coffees are Fairtrade and they have a range which includes the Cuban coffee used in their original one cup filters and a selection of other coffee blends and single origin coffees with some top of the range options such as Blue Mountain and Kenyan pure origin. They also produce decaf one cup filters. I particularly love those as I have one or two friends who enjoy fresh coffee but only drink decaf. It also works if you have one friend who wants a strong Italian style coffee while another wants a more mellow cup. You can mix and match the single cups and give everyone their favourite blend.
