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 www.medagliadoro.com for more information. Visit
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.
