Pret is launching a range of retail coffee bags on Amazon, meaning you can replicate that well-loved Pret a Manger flavour at home. You can have a look at their online store here.

The range goes live on 18 May and will be available both in stores and online. Initially, Pret is offering three beans: a dark espresso blend, a medium, pre-ground 'classic' blend and a light, single origin Peruvian bean.

The bags are really well priced: the 500g classic blend and single origin Peruvian bags are £9.50 each, making them considerably cheaper than many coffees on the market. The question still remains as to whether this price difference comes down to a matter of quality.

The espresso blend only comes in a 1kg bag, and costs £16.99. Given the large size, I think this one might be best for people in large families or with a large caffeine tolerance. Coffee beans really ought to be used within three weeks of being roasted, so you're going to have to drink a lot to get through this while it's at its best.

Are they a tad late?

In joining the retail beans market, Pret has put itself in competition with a number of other high street coffee shop chains, namely Starbucks and Costa. The move has been made to satiate Pret fans during the lockdown.

Pret's UK managing director Clare Clough said, “We know how much customers are missing [our coffee] from their daily lives at the moment, so we’re delighted to be launching our first retail range with Amazon.

“This marks the first time that our customers can make their favourite Pret coffee at home.”

However, as the lockdown nears its end and Pret stores begin to reopen nationwide, it seems that the chain might be a little late to the party.

It's possible that Pret is anticipating reduced footfall in its outlets, and perhaps even a shift in the public from eating and drinking out to making do at home. The lockdown has brought out the baker, chef, handyman and barista in all of us, and many might feel they don't need to head out for a coffee any more.

What about if you'd rather brave it outdoors?

As mentioned, Pret has recently reopened 70 of its stores after a successful trial. CEO Pan Christou said: “The Pret experience for both our customers and teams will continue to feel very different.

“For example, each shop will be fitted with Perspex screens at the tills, we will restrict the number of customers in our shops, we’ll provide hand sanitiser for customers, and face coverings to our team members who prefer to wear one."

Here's a full list of the open stores. Hopefully your local Pret is on this list...
