The Wiltshire Chilli Farm - Coffee Spiked BBQ Sauce

As a reviewer you know when you have a good, tasty sauce. My usual routine when I receive a product to review is to open each sauce and have a quick taste before storing in the fridge to do the review a bit later. Well with this BBQ sauce, I didn’t just stop at the initial tasting, I kept using it on sandwiches, meats etc. It was only when I had less than a third left that I suddenly remembered that I needed some left to write a review! Now that’s a sign of a good sauce.

Anyway, on to the sauce itself. The bottle is the familiar shape of their standard range, giving 140ml of sauce per bottle, the labelling keeps the familiar branding by showing a picture of the Chilli used in the recipe.

My only criticism is that the labelling doesn’t tell me what exact chilli it uses, not exactly a problem for the average customer who thinks a Chilli is a Chilli, but I like to know and don’t always recognise the Chilli from the picture. Other sauces in the range do mention the Chilli variety but this one doesn’t. I’m informed by Jamie that in this case, it’s Naga.

The sauce itself is brown which isn’t a surprise due to the molasses; the sauce has a ketchup thickness to it but has slightly more texture to it, meaning it pours smoothly on to my spoon. Upon opening the bottle, I can smell tomatoes, onion, the sweetness of the molasses, and the cider vinegar. None of these overpower the other, all too often a sauce can be ruined by too much vinegar. I can’t make out the scent of coffee even though I know it’s there.

Putting the spoon in my mouth, I get an immediate sweetness which soon gives way to a savoury flavour, swiftly followed by the Naga burn which is strong but not uncomfortable. Then the subtle coffee comes through and fades leaving a pleasant burn throughout the mouth.

Ingredients: Tomatoes, Onion, Sugar, Red Pepper, Celery, Cider Vinegar, Coffee 6%, Molasses, Chilli, Salt, Spices.

As I mentioned earlier, I have been using this on all sorts of things but when I buy another bottle I will be trying it on chicken or ribs before Barbecuing.

So for £3.75 you get a great, different take on the standard BBQ sauce, it’s not sickly sweet which is a good thing in my opinion, and don’t be put off by the addition of coffee, it’s a background flavour which is subtle enough not to overpower. Go grab a bottle now!
