During my pregnancy I went through an assortment of cravings ranging from anchovies with pickled onion crisps to Cappucino's. Obviously during a pregnancy you are bombarded with warnings about how everything including the air you breath is dangerous and I was a little wary about consuming to much caffeine so went in search of a decaffeinated cappucino that was not too expensive that I could make at work so I came across this product in my local Sainsburys.
Packaging: A Brown box with an image of a lovely cup of cappucino with steam rising from the foam with the writing Nescafe Cappuccino decaffeinated above. The box contains 10 x 16g sachets suitable for 10 mug sized servings and a 7g bottle of sweetened cocoa topping. The sachets are easy to tear open and I would definately not recommend that you carry them loose in your bag with keys.
Product and use: I poured the contents of the sachet into my work mug and then poured freshly boiled water (NOT BOILING) upto 3/4 of the way up the cup ontop of the powder and then stir firmly and quickly for about 30-40 seconds until the powder has dissolved. Optional - Once the foam has thickened and risen sprinkle some of the cocoa topping on top of the foam and voila one Decaff Cappuccino. The cappuccino tasted much better than I imagined and definately helped with my craving and was a lovely blend of chocolate with milky white coffee without a hint of burning which I find a common problem with decaff coffees. The only problem with the regular decaff version of this coffee is that it contains quite alot of sugar per serving 8.4g of sugar without the sprinkles but thankfully they released an unsweetened version with a lower 4.5g of sugar.
Conclusion: Even though I am no longer pregnant I still drink decaffeinated coffee and always have these sachets in just incase I run out of milk at home. They can be costly (£2.55 per pack) when not on offer but generally I get these on BOGOF at either Sainsburys or Morrisons - Then again if you're buying a coffee every day from a coffee shop at say £2 it works out at £10/week and that can really pack a dent in your wallet.
Nescafe is one of the best selling brands of instant coffee that is made by Nestle. Beginning 1867 Henri Nestlé started his company Farine Lactee in Vevey. He produced a baby food product developed by him, based on milk and cereals. Nestlé has now grown into a large company.
I can say I'm a big coffee drinker and love cappuccino. The first thing I do when I'm up in the morning is making coffee and I drink coffee during the whole day. I really like coffee and I'm a bad grump in the morning without it. I actually like the taste of coffee and I'm just not much of a tea person. Because I drink so much coffee I felt sometimes restless, especially when it comes to sleeping at night so I decided to drink more decaf coffee and I found Nescafe Cappuccino Decaf.
This instant coffee is available in sachets and is perfect since I'm the only one who drinks this coffee. Therefore the sachets are convenient for me for making coffee for one person. This instant coffee has a taste with a full cappuccino froth layer. When I drink this coffee, I don't miss the caffeine and can't really tell the difference with the normal version so I can still enjoy my coffee.
The Nescafé Cappuccino decaf has a light coffee scent present and has a delicious creamy taste when you drink it. The decaf version for me is the same as the normal version and it has a good thick layer of foam on the top with the powder which is white with little brown bits in it.

The Nescafe Cappuccino Decaf comes in a brown cardboard box. The box contains 10 sachets 10. On the front of the box clearly states the brand name "Nescafe" and below cappuccino. On the side of the box you will find the nutrition, ingredients and product information. For a pack of 10 sachets you pay around 1.99 pounds.
Because I drink lots of coffee, Decaf coffee is a good change for me. This way I can enjoy a cup of coffee without too much caffeine.
Nescafe Cappuccino is great for any coffee lover - with the benefit of being decaf. I don't tend to drink instant coffee as a prefer tea, but I tried Nescafe Cappunccino and fell in love with it. It tastes like real coffee.
It is easy to make, it comes in a box with 10 sachets in, and the box is cardboard and recyclable. Each sachet contains a powder mixture of milk and coffee. You empty this in to a mug and simply add hot water. You must stir it with a teaspoon the moment you add the water ad continue to do so for a few minutes or else it will go lumpy.
I personally buy this item from Asda but it is available in all supermarkets ands costs approximately £2.50 per box.
I like the taste of this and I often have a cappuccino whilst out but this tastes just as good. It has a good blend of milk and coffee and isn't too strong, I would say this is suitable for those who like weak coffee and aren't big coffee drinkers, although I think coffee drinkers will like it too.
The quantity does make a large mug full, so it doesn't loose flavour the more water you add.
The coffee stays fresh due to the packaging being sealed sachets and this makes it last longer for those of you with it sitting in the cupboard like me.
