  • Instant Espresso Coffee

Roast: NA Review Date: March 2011
Origin: Not disclosed. Almost certainly contains coffee of the Robusta species. Price: $3.79/2 oz. instant

Blind Assessment: Sweet with some fruit in the aroma, which is otherwise dominated by a wet burned board sensation. Negligible acidity; lightly syrupy, perhaps lightly soapy, mouthfeel. Aggressively flat in the cup; salt, soap, wet board. Salty sweet finish.

Notes: An instant coffee evaluated as mixed in proportions of 2.5 grams to 150 ml or 5 ounces of hot water. Assuming a larger cup size and a more generous 3 grams per serving, this product costs approximately 20 cents per serving. Visit for more information. Visit for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Perhaps dissolving a couple of teaspoons in hot milk with lots of sugar could produce a decent beverage for old-fashioned coffee-with-hot-milk drinkers.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
