Advantages: Richly flavoured instant coffee.
Disadvantages: It is a rich instant coffee but not the fullest favour on the market.
I am a self-confessed caffeine addict. I do love a good rich mug of coffee during the afternoon. I am also very keen to get good value for my money.
Kenco Really Rich lets me get all of these features in one glass jar - or refill pouch.
As per the label, this is a richly flavoured instant coffee. The well formed non-powdery granules release a tasty blend of arabica coffee into your tea or mug. Kenco have produced a blend which has a deep coffee taste without the excess acidity or bitterness which can mar cheaper instant coffees. It is undoubtedly a stronger tasting coffee than its main label-mate but it is still a very palatable one for my sensitive stomach.
I use one teaspoon of coffee for my mug and add milk which the granules melt into nicely - meaning I don't usually need to stir my coffee when I add the water. It is a rich tasting coffee but those who prefer stronger tasting brews should use more or try a stronger flavoured blend.
The granules come in a 100g glass jar, which can be recycled. The screw top keeps the granules dry and stop them clumping together. Refills are available in a 150g pouch which enables you to reuse the jar and save on the amount of rubbish and recycling which has to be stored for the all too scarce rubbish collections.
The standard 100g glass jar will set you back £3.63 from Sainsbury's but is available at all the main supermarkets as well as online. Refill pouches are great value at £3.00 also at Sainsbury's and make investment in the jar a good financial call as well as a taste satisfying one.
A staple of my kitchen cupboard, which I can rely on to provide me with a reliably tasty mug of coffee at a reasonable price.
Summary: A good reliable coffee which gives a richly flavoured brew.
