About This Coffee
Our Perfect for Pods No.2 coffee blend is really special to us. This medium-dark roasted blend is full of surprises. It's smooth on the palette with sweet undertones of berry, chocolate and hazelnut. 

This coffee can be enjoyed at any time of the day and is particularly popular as an afternoon or evening 'pick me up' because of it's smooth and mellow flavour.

Perfect for Pods No.2 is a strong, medium-dark roast coffee and rich in flavour. This coffee is great enjoyed as a short single shot, but if you want an even more intense caffeine kick then you can use two pods.

Community Project

PERFECT FOR PODS NO.2 IS A COMMUNITY PROJECT COFFEE 

What's even better, is that by buying our Perfect for Pods No.2 blend, you are giving back to the community in D.R Congo. Every purchase contributes towards the Rebuild Women's Hope (RWH) which is a non-profit organisation based in Bukavu, Democratic Republic of Congo. 

This was set up in 2013 with the aim of empowering Congolese women who are traditionally considered less valuable than a man and merely an instrument of sexual satisfaction or a producer of children. Women in the Congo are considered incapable of contributing to family and community’s needs through dignified work.

An export partner in our coffee chain 'CoffeeLac' alongside SHIFT Social Impact Solutions and others have teamed up with RWH in order to leverage the incredible potential that coffee has in creating economic opportunities for female smallholders on Lake Idjwi. Together, the partners have provided members of RWH with the tools and the know-how to take control of their economic future by integrating them into the coffee value chain. The Coffeelac Rebuild Women’s Hope program has included building two washing stations on Idjwi Island - where our Rebuild Women's Hope coffees are processed - and entrepreneurship and economic empowerment training for RWH’s members. 

Today, RWH has expanded to 1,800 members growing high-quality coffee and the program continues to build a spirit of entrepreneurship among the women on Idjwi Island. The close collaboration has allowed RWH and its members to realise their dream of rebuilding hope and dignity among women coffee farmers in the DRC.

Delicious and perfect for later in the day

I have recently tried Number 2 as a change from my usual fave number 4 and I really like it. I actually use it in my espresso machine rather than pods, but it works just as well! As the description says, its not quite as strong as number 4 which makes it a better option for coffee number 2 or 3 in the day, when I am not quite sure if an extra coffee might send me into a frenzy :)
As always, Pippa has been fantastic at recommending coffees I might like - she's always super helpful and always gets her recommendations just right. Also loving the new packaging and design!

Delicious coffee and brilliant service

Perfect strength for me and delicious with oat milk. Sustainable packaging, sustainable pods and a personal thank you note. Would never go back to using single pods now. I have been using Maverick for over a year now and no plans to switch!

Thanks for the great review Georgie. Great to hear you are fan and are still enjoying our coffee. We really appreciate your support!

Too weak

This was my first sojourn into the world of Evergreen capsules, and I think I need a much stronger roast to compensate for the slightly reduced volume of grounds in the capsule. More experimentation needed!

Thanks for the review Anthony. Yes the results aren't quite as good when using Evergreen Capsules (we only stock SealPod as we've tried and tested them against others and have found they produce a better coffee), however you could try our strongest coffee which is the Perfect for Pods No.4, and see if this is any better for you. You could also try using two pods (double shot) which a lot of our customers do, and this is more similar to a coffee shop style coffee. I hope this helps :)

Maverick coffee No 2

Was very impressed with the packaging and personal message of the company . Love the ideas of Maverick brand , environmental friendly , community project , tree planting etc ... Unfortunately I found the coffee too weak for my nespresso machine , I like a long coffee ( black americano) Should you suggest a different coffee or use 2 pods per cup please ?could you give me an idea of the water quantity per cup for a coffee No2 pod please . Many thanks ... will persevere and try to get it right with your help !!

Thanks for your review Maryannig. The Perfect for Pods No.4 is our strongest pod coffee, so I'd suggest trying this one next to see if it's got a bit more of a kick. We also always recommend 2 shots of coffee if you like a long Americano. Nespresso pods only hold 7g of coffee, and unlike Nespresso brand coffee, we don't add Robusta to our coffee which is what makes it taste so strong. Using 2 pods should make a big difference - let us know how you get on!

So so nice

Normally I go for the Perfect for Pods #1 but thought I’d treat myself this time and it is so nice, even opening it up still gets my mouth watering.

Thanks Darren - the smell is divine, isn't it? :D
