Advantages: Lovely aroma, smooth taste
Disadvantages: Leaves quite a bitter aftertaste
I love coffee: I usually drink iced coffee rather than drink it hot. Coffee is a life saver for me when I have late night and need an extra kick the next morning. If I'm in a hurry, I usually make a quick cup of coffee from those instant sachets or use the coffee powder like the Nescafe.
The Nescafe original used to the popular drink with my family; well it's still very popular with my grandparents. It comes in a glass bottle in various sizes. Usually it's retailed as 200 gram bottles but lately, there's a promotion going on where you get 50% free where you get 300 gram bottles for the price of the 200g ones. I believe the price of the promotional 300 gram bottles are around about £ 3.50 - 4.00 depending on where you buy it. The glass bottle is recyclable and also there are 150g refillable plastic packs available for those who like to be green.
I just love the smell of the Nescafe original. It has a strong aromatic scent of coffee beans and makes me yearn for a cup of coffee. However, even though I prefer to drink my coffee cold, in this case I have to make it hot. It's just Nescafe original tastes dull and bitter if I make it cold. Two spoonful of coffee powder is enough to make about 300 ml cup of coffee. I like my coffee with both sugar and milk, and the taste of Nescafe original really complements the sweetness of sugar and the creaminess of milk in my opinion.
However, one complaint I have about this product is that I am not a big fan of the aftertaste. It's leaves quite a strong bitter aftertaste that's hard to get rid off. However, the taste of the product itself is good and acceptable for what you should get from instant coffee powders. The coffee made with the Nescafe powder is very smooth and easy to enjoy.
Overall, I think this is a reasonable product and the quality you get is pretty good for what it is. I mean the taste can't be compared to that of freshly ground coffee beans from Starbucks etc. However, if you're in a hurry and want a quick cup of coffee, this will do a good job.
Thank you for reading. :) x
Summary: Great cup of coffee for those in a hurry
