    The Medium Roast Classic Decaf by Marks & Spencer Food might just be my favorite decaf option so far. Well-rounded but skewing slightly sweet, this decaf option hits you with a subtle but complex blend of nutty, chocolatey and gingerbread-y spice flavors. The aftertaste is very pleasant as well, slightly bitter but not at all off-putting. Overall, an incredible option - 5/5!

    You may find that, rarely, the thin foil cover may cause a very small amount of coffee grounds to leak into your cup. Not at all a significant problem, but one to take note of. Also, at SGD$1.03 a pod, this is one of the most expensive options I've come across, and while worth every penny, you may want to take this into consideration as well.

    It's been a long time since we looked at a Marks & Spencer pod, so let's remedy this by reviewing their Colombian Espresso pod! What a nice, intense pod! Very fruity and plummy with a slight spiced aroma to it and a velvety finish. This is a primarily acidic coffee with some sweetness, but in spite of this, it is _extremely_ pleasant - 4.5/5, yet another hit from M&S!

    Marketed by the brand as a medium roast with an intensity of 8, expect dark chocolate, hazelnut, and blueberry flavors. M&S pods have always been at a slight premium of SGD$1.03, but I was lucky enough to get these on sale at SGD$0.824 per pod. An absolute steal for an excellent coffee!

    Here's a pod from Marks & Spencer food that is marketed as a ristretto pod, something I love for usually meaning sweeter and stronger coffees. I brewed this "by eye", cutting off the shot to achieve about half of the usual volume.

    I found the coffees made this way to have intense spicy notes, very bitter with a lot of acidity, while not devoid of sweetness. There's a bit of earthiness and nuttiness, and in subsequent tries when I made the cup a little smaller, there's also a somewhat chalky feel to it. Overall - 3/5. I think brewing this as an espresso, against the manufacturer's instructions, might have been a better idea.

    I got these on discount at SGD$0.824 a pod. Not one of my favorite coffees from Marks and Spencer, less so at full price. Having said that, I've tried both their Colombian Espresso and Classic Decaf, both of which I enjoyed far more, so perhaps consider those instead!
