I love my caffeine and can easily sit in all day drinking it. My body has now started to only function after 3 coffees in a morning, I will say this is not good for me and I must cut down but it is now an addiction. I have drunk coffees when I have been out and about but nothing beats the ones that I make at home. I only ever drink black coffee which medical studies show at least one a day is good for you and can also help you break down fat within the body if drank in a morning so it can not be all that bad. I only ever buy Nescafe and there are two reasons for this one is that it is strong but smooth in taste with a hot cup and that it mixes the best when making an ice coffee.
This is granules that are made from the best coffee beans from my opinion. It is made by a known brand that makes different types of coffee such as decafe, cappachino, late and much more. I do purchase the cappuccino boxes which are also very nice and quick to make. This coffee comes in different sizes I normally buy the 300g jar because of how much I drink but you can buy them in 200g.100g and 25g jars so if I do need to just top up these can be convenient. They also do big tubs which are normally purchased for café's. When my local supermarket has a deal on it can only cost £5 for the large jar which is good otherwise it can be quite expensive but worth it. This coffee is naturally rich in antioxidants which are good for you and great to remember if you are a coffee lover like myself.
The first taste I will tell you about is the hot cup. This has a strong taste depending on how much coffee is used. I tend to use a level tea spoonful and two heaped sugars because I have a sweet tooth. Although I use a lot of sugar the flavour of the coffee can still be tasted. I think it has a smooth taste which is very pleasant and has a lot of flavour to give me the best experience especially first thing in a morning. I find it very warming and comforting on a cold day. The best thing about this is the coffee aroma with this coffee. When I have made it and I am waiting for it to cool I find the aroma very settling.
The next taste is the cold taste there is some added extras in this drink which makes it satisfying but the reason that I use Nescafe is because it is the only coffee that I have found that dissolves with cold water. The taste of the coffee is their and this is more of a milky coffee if you are a coffee lover you will love this. I have never bought an Ice coffee but a friend of mine has shown me how to make one. The reason that this is good is because in the hot weather it is very refreshing and has the caffeine content for my body. The coffee taste is made very smooth yet refreshing which is different but good for a coffee, I have stated below how to make it.
These jars can be quite expensive and for the amount that I consume then it will work out costly. Different supermarkets have different deals on which is always good to look out for and the large jar for £5 will last me around a month which is not bad value for money. I find this a very versatile coffee so it is good value in that aspect too.

Chocolate scoop ice cream
Vanilla scoop ice cream
A large glass
How to make
Take the large glass and just over half fill with cold water. I use my fridge water dispenser but tap water will be sufficient. Add one large tea spoonful of coffee to the water and mix until dissolved this will only take a matter of seconds. Add sugar if you like to this is optional I have two and mix again. Once mixed add ice cubes depending on size 3 should be sufficient. Add one generous scoop of each flavour ice cream and add a straw. It is as simple as that.
This is a relaxing drink that has a lovely aroma and smooth but rich taste. It is good value for money and very versatile. It is as nice hot as it is cold and is great for a get together with friends.
Summary: try it you never know what might happen
