Blind Assessment: Evaluated at proportions of 5 grams of instant coffee powder mixed with 8.5 ounces (250 ml) of hot water. Flat, salty, expressionless. Salted graham cracker, a faint vegetal note in aroma and cup. Sweet-salty-acrid in structure. Flat, lifeless mouthfeel. Rounds and sweetens just a bit in the finish.
Notes: This coffee was reviewed in the “supermarket” category in a tasting of soluble or “instant” coffees for Coffee Review’s September 2018 tasting report. Contains coffee of the robusta species. Taster’s Choice is a brand of the Nestlé company. Visit www.nescafeusa.com for more information.
The Bottom Line: Not a pleasant experience.
