Nescafe Suraya instant coffee.
This is one of the Nescafe premium range instant coffees and is one of the coffees I drink quite often. The coffee beans they use in this blend are from Sumatra Indonesia and it is a beautiful tasting coffee. I find it much more palatable strong and robust with a spicy flavour to it.
I often wait until it is on special offer at the supermarket and when it is I will buy several jars of it to put in the cupboard ready for when I fancy a change and for something rather tasty to drink. I must admit I do drink rather a lot of coffee and start and end the day with a coffee so I will not compromise my coffee drinking for anyone although I have dabbled in supermarket own brands which quite frankly I find to be quite vile. I don't know why I never learn sometimes I am tempted after reading reviews just to try some of the supermarket coffees and wish I had stuck with my instinct which says OH DON'T GO THERE!!!!
When you first break the seal of the lid the aroma of the coffee smells really nice. I usually have a good old waft just to savour the smell of the coffee its nearly as good as sniffing a good wine. It is certainly one of the nicest smells I can think of.
To make the coffee put two heaped teaspoons in a cup then pour on boiling water or milk and savour the delicious tasting coffee. The taste is strong and robust and yet it is a nice smooth tasting coffee which for me it is very moreish. I love this coffee and can definitely recommend it if you want a decent cup.
As this coffee is in the premium range so expect to pay between £3-£4 for 100gm jar. I normally wait for it to be on special offer where you can buy two for £5 which makes it quite a bargain in my opinion and usually end up buying four or six jars of the coffee.
Would I recommend this coffee? I most certainly would it is delicious as far as instant coffee goes. I would rate this as one of the better tasting instant coffees available off the shelf. If I could give it ten stars I certainly would. A lovely tasting coffee one you won't regret trying.
Not a lot to say. I've been dissatisfied with almost all instant coffees in the past - typically a trade-off between convenience and poor quality. This one is the best I've come across as an alternative to the real (ground) thing.It can't supplant a proper cafetiere brew, but its' a pretty good second when you just want a quick cup.
I love coffee and I'm sure I'm addicted to it! I love trying new, instant coffees I haven't seen before...particulary when they are on offer like this one was in Asda recently (I paid £5.00 for any two jars from this range).
Black and dark green jar that holds 100g of coffee within it. On the front of the jar I am told that it is Nescafe 'Collection' Suraya and there is a small scenery picture on there and I'm told that it is Aromatic 100% Pure Arabica. On the back of the jar other information listed includes being given a nutritional rundown on the coffee and told the ingredients (this only contains coffee and nothing else is added by the way), the size is stated (as I've listed already) and contact details for Nescafe are given. To the top of the jar there is a twist on and off black plastic lid/cap that is easy to open and close and all in all it's a rather nice, classy looking jar.
The Coffee Itself:
Dark brown coffee coloured granules that are rather chunky and of course you add as much or as little of this as you like to make a rich and deep, dark brown coloured coffee that is actually rather glossy looking and not greasy. Add whatever you want to it in the way of milk, cream, sweeteners or sugar or whatever and that's it. It's instant coffee of course so is rather instant to make up lol.
I find the granules to melt in hot water ever so well and all that is left to do is drink it of course!
For me this is a medium roast coffee. It isn't too rich but at the same time it is distinctive as coffee and not too weak. It's nothing all that special though, it has a nice enough roasted flavour but for me it is an everyday coffee rather than being something special that by the appearance of the jar I sort of expected it to be. It's nice enough but really is just a decent instant coffee that isn't too aromatic and is pure Arabica!
