Tesco Value Coffee
Advantages: It is only 50p for 100g
Disadvantages: It is poor quality and a weak coffee
WHAT IS IT?
A very cheap jar of coffee from Tesco's Everyday Value range. A 100g jar costs just 50p and the coffee is in granules instead of powder like most very cheap coffees are.
WHY I BOUGHT IT
I drink fresh coffee mostly and it would never have entered my head to buy such cheap coffee but my daughter was doing a project at school that required her to age some papers and the best way to do this is soak them in a coffee solution and dry quickly over the radiator or in front of the fire. We used about 3/4 of the jar up like this and when we had finished I decided to make my husband and I a cup of this coffee to try it out of curiosity.
This coffee is not as bad as I thought but does not have a very good flavour and left a funny taste in my mouth. It tastes a bit bitter and is not a smooth drink but is not disgusting like Sainsbury's own brand coffee, not their very cheap version I have only drunk theirs from the standard range. It does not have a strong flavour and as soon as I poured a little milk into my cup the flavour went very weak.
WHAT I THINK
I did not like this coffee very much but if you are on a very small budget then I think you could do worse. It reminds me of the coffee my mother used to buy when I was a teenager and instant coffee was not as we'll developed as it is now. The granules stir into the coffee quite well but there were a few small bubbles and black bits floating on the top of the coffee once I had made it.
I always add a half teaspoon of sugar to my coffee to enhance the flavour but with this one it also removes the bitterness and makes it more pleasant to drink. The jar now looks a lot nicer than the one in the photograph, it is called Everyday Value Coffee now and the label shows a cup of coffee with small pictures of coffee cups and kettles printed around it.
3 Dooyoo Stars.
Summary: This is not a coffee I will buy again but it isn't as bad as I feared
