This is what the judges have commented on our Orzo★Coffee:
Very pleasant robust and dark, coffee-like appearance. Very well rounded barley flavour, not too bitter with a nice finish - good with milk. Great for people who like a coffee-style drink with no caffeine
Another amazing review from Lindsay of Lean Bean Nutrition who tried our instant OrzoCoffee. She writes "Substituting coffee containing caffeine to Orzo coffee at lunch time or late at night can help regulate melatonin levels and rescue you from an awful night’s sleep. Keep calm and drink Orzo… that’s what they say" . Read the full review here
A lovely review written by Michael Doherty for Kelly Martin Speaks blog about our ground roasted Orzo Coffee. Martin writes "I was pleasantly surprised by Orzo Coffee, because I have tried other coffee substitutes in the past, and haven’t liked them. Many of them left a very bitter aftertaste which was unpleasant, but not this one". Read the full review here. You can also follow Kelly's updates via Twitter & Facebook .
The super sweet Sam from super blog Mummy Rated has written a lovely review about our Instant OrzoCoffee. Read what she says
" When I make my Orzo Coffee I make it in the same way I make my regular coffee, really milky with honey. The thing I love about Orzo Coffee is that it offers a very similar velvety and comforting feeling when drinking it...". You can read the full review here

Mishu from the popular Vegan blog To Happy Vegan has reviewed our ground roasted OrzoCoffee. Read what she write: "... it has that roasted flavour about it.The thing I really love is that you can get it ground which means I get to use my faithful old cafetiere. I didn’t realise how I had missed my weekend ritual of brewing the coffee and pushing the plunger" . Read the full review here.
Ana from Ana Goes Green a fab green / eco beauty blog has reviewed our orzocoffee for you. Read what she writes:
"My favourite thing about Orzo is that I get none of the problems with it that I get with regular coffee or decaf and it tastes really lovely. If you are looking for a naturally caffeine free alternative I think this is fabulous, some decaffeinated coffee can be treated with a variety of chemicals to extract the caffeine, something I would much rather avoid. I think anyone would enjoy this, but I can see it being a real favourite with pregnant ladies and those who need to cut down their caffeine intake and I would definitely recommend it."

The lovely Angela from www.lovelivingwell.co.uk has written an in-depth review about our ground roasted Orzo Coffee. In her review she explains "I admit I was pleasantly surprised – in fact it was quite a lot like decaff coffee, with a slightly smoky undertaste. My husband Steve really liked it and said he would happily drink it in the evening, when having normal coffee would keep him awake at night. You can read the full review here

Another fantastic review about OrzoCoffee from the Nichola Whitehead (BSc hons, PG Dip, MSc, RD) a specialist dietitian.
In her blog (full of recipes and advices about nutrition) she writes " I was hesitant at trying my first mug of this coffee however I
really didn't need to be! After I'd tasted it I instantly loved
it and poured another cup! This is how I personally like my OrzoCoffee: 1)Mix 2 level teaspoons of Orzo in a mug with 1 tsp of stevia (natural sweetener), 2) Add freshly boiled water, 3) Top with skimmed milk or soya milk and stir well"

What you tell us about OrzoCoffee ...
Here are some reviews written by you! If you have tried Orzo♥Coffee and would like to write a brief comment for our readers on our website, please fill in the contact form below.
I have already told friends about Orzo and look forward to giving them a tasting session very soon. I dislike tea and only drink coffee and have done so for over 40 years and have just realised what damage I could be doing to myself. I thought I would find it very difficult to give up my daily treat but now realise that I can do it with your product. So please that I found out about you. Many
I am extremely pleased with both the instant and ground versions of Orzo and purchased enough to pass on to family members who had expressed an interest in coffee alternatives. My wife cannot drink ordinary coffee, caffeinated or decaffeinated, and we predominantly bought Orzo for her. My wife now is able to enjoy something other than tea and is very pleased with the taste.
I thought it was delicious and it's a great alternative for when I want a coffee or hot drink. I only have 1 coffee a day and don't feel it's healthy to have more than that, so this is a great solution.
I cannot drink coffee due to having a thyroid problem. I bought your Orzo coffee and pot set a while ago. Since I bought the set I am using the orzo coffee in the pot as well as my barista machine. Wow it makes wonderful lattes and cappuccinos, without the want of coffee. Many thanks. Would recommend it to anyone who has a coffee allergy.
I eat a very healthy diet and my one bad habit was coffee! The problem was I saw it as my treat of the day and drinking a herb tea instead felt really unfair! I've been absolutely delighted with orzo coffee I still feel I'm getting my treat and it tastes and feels like the real thing but the bonus is its healthier ! I haven't even craved a normal coffee since drinking it so it's now an obvious choice for me! I love how you can make espresso and cafetieres with it too - brilliant!
Just met you and tried your lovely Orzo coffee at the Winchester Guildhall. Look forward to putting the cafetiere on :) Nice to support local. Just brewing my second cafetiere of the day - gorgeous! Thanks for the recipe link, much appreciated !
Discovered orzo in my local health food store looking for a coffee alternative while I am expecting my second child. It is now become my daily treat. When friends visit and see me with my black coffee brewed in the cafetiere they all start telling me that I shouldn't drink so much coffee... they never guess that it is orzo and naturally caffeine free!
I gave up caffeine, but having been a habitual coffee drinker for twenty five years, I was going to be fussy about any alternative. But I read about this product from Italy, and you know, it is as good as they say! It is a lovely strong, but not overpowering, flavour and yet it isn't just a coffee substitute, it is a good drink in its own right. And don't believe it is like the UK's Barley Cup or other chicory based ersatz coffees, they are nothing like Orzo, and Orzo is far superior. This product deserves a wider audience!
Thanks for the sample. Just drinking a cup now and enjoying it - much better than instant coffee and no doubt healthier too.
AMG has been testing Orzo Coffee and has been very impressed. One member of staff does not drink coffee so for him it’s been a great alternative. We have been brewing it in a cafetiere, not only does it taste and smell like coffee but it has the same mouthfeel which is important to the enjoyment of a drink.

Thank you for the sample, which we have duly drunk.I am an dedicated coffee drinker and to be honest I did not expect any great result from the Orzo.I was absolutely wrong the product is amazing and I would use it to reduce my Caffeine intake. Other Barley substitutes I tried have been weak and tasteless and your product stands out for a number of reasons.
1. I looks great, dark roast and brews brilliantly.
2. Flavour is mild and not a burnt taste.
3. Low in acidity as it did not curdle my Soy Milk.
4. It acts and looks like a coffee, so it is easy to substitute for coffee mentally.
Let me know when you have stock available.
Thank you for the coffee it is really delicious ... My husband and I had some this morning and my daughter and my brother shared 1/2 a cup this afternoon. We all thought it great (My brother has lived in the US for 40 years and is very particular about his coffee) I asked him to taste it and he said it was very nice before he even knew what it was, praise indeed. I liked it more black than white and I don't usually like black coffee. Let me know when I can buy some.
Lovely tweets about us ...
