The housework is done, its raining and I can't go and do any gardening or take my two year old for a walk, so its review time. I love Camp Coffee and had ran out but whilst walking round my local Tesco I spotted the Douwe Egberts Cafe Switch and thought they look nice so i'd give them a try. Douwe Egberts, I would say are excellent coffee makers so I new they would be fairly decent. Douwe Egberts - The Company Egbert Douwes and his wife originally started up in Joure, Holland in 1753 by selling Tea, Coffee and Tobacco to local residents. Their son Douwe Egberts entered the company in 1780 and started supplying other shops around the ... Read the complete review

I always thought that in order for a food product to successfully get onto the market, it would have to face a multitude of tests and tastings. Something clearly went wrong with Douwe Egberts' taste panel, because somehow Café Switch made it to the shelves. I got a free voucher for a box of Café Switch (which normally retails for around £2 per box of 6 pods). Douwe Egberts coffee is normally nice, so I thought I'd try it. It sounded like a nice product - frothy coffee without having to use a machine. This appealed because I like to have coffee before I go to work, but I don't have time to set up and clean the machine. The variety of Café Switch ... Read the complete review

I saw the advert for the Douwe Egberts Cafe Switch products and decided to give them a try. I decided that creamy pleasure sounded nicest as I prefer latte type coffee with loads of milk in it. I need to take my own coffee to work, but having no access to a fridge for milk I normally take the sachets of cappuccino and thought this product would make a nice change. At around £2 for six coffee pods, these are marketed as being a luxury product, so I was expecting something really good. I was about to be disapointed. I followed the instructions and pumped up the contents of the adjoining pods with my thumbs to aereate the product and create the froth. ... Read the complete review

Café Switch is the latest in a long line of attempts to bring instant coffee with a difference to the mass market. Like previous experiments in this area, I think it is doomed to failure and I’ll be surprised if it’s still on the shelves in six months time. The idea behind Café Switch is that it produces a frothy cup of coffee which is “indulgent and dreamy” and a “creamy pleasure”. That’s what it says on the packet, anyway. Frankly, the only pleasure you’re likely to get from this is when you tip it away and make yourself a proper cup of coffee. Preparation --------------- Actually, that’s not fair. There is a certain degree of fun to be ... Read the complete review

Have you ever seen an ad for a new product, thought “that looks interesting” and then tried the product only to be disappointed? Well, for me, that is how I found myself feeling after trying a free sample of the new Douwe Egberts Café Switch range. I am a bit of a coffee snob, and this is something that should perhaps be born in mind when reading, but I do rate Douwe Egberts as a coffee brand (even if it is owned by the horrendous Sara Lee!) and so I was more than a little surprised at the drink that greeted me. Café Switch is one of the ever-increasing new types of “make it yourself frothy coffee”. Coffee shop culture having well and truly ... Read the complete review
