Nescafe Gold Blend Decaff
Advantages: Tastes the same, no caffeine
Disadvantages: No Caffeine!!
I don't really believe in decaff coffee, I think if you are going to drink coffee and enjoy it and enjoy the benefits of a bit of caffeine whilst you are drinking it why would you even need to bother with decaff. I know people who drink decaff coffee at night time because they say that the caffeine in regular coffee keeps them awake at night but this has never been a problem for me.
However, last year when I was pregnant I knew I needed to buy some decaff coffee as lots of caffeine is not recommended during pregnancy but I knew I could not possibly give up my coffee habit so I had to settle for decaff for nine months. On a shopping trip I tasked my husband with finding me some nice decaff coffee as if I was going to ahve to drink it it might as well be a ncie expensive one!!
He came back with Nescafe Gold Blend Decaff which I have to say was absolutely lovely and to be honest I really could not tell the difference, it tastes exactly the same as regualr coffee, it was not bitter or flavourless and I did not really miss the caffeine. I think the only way in which I missed the caffeine was in my head, I like to know that I am drinking some caffeine so it gives me a bit of a boost so maybe I missed it a little bit if I thought of it like that but not really I have to say. It is made from 100% pure and natural coffee and you can tell as in my opinion these are good quality beans into granuales.
This coffee comes in granuale form and is an instant ready to make coffee so you just need to pour hot water over it to make it. It has a nice rich smell to it and is not a very strong coffee but lovely and creamy if you add lots of milk to it. You can tell it apart on the shelves from regular coffee as this jar has a blue lid on it and also a blue label telling you that it is Nescafe's decaff version. I drank tons of this stuff when I was pregnant and it was satisfying and thankfully did no harm to the baby so I am pleased it was in decaff form. I have a little bit left in a jar in my cupboard, I have not really used it since I was pregnant but I am keeping it there for any pregnant friends that make come to visit as it is such a good coffee.
