When I decided to get off my high horse, after years of wasting half pots of unconsumed expensive coffee, I went to what I remembered from my childhood...my mom's choice of coffee, Nescafe Instant. My husband was delighted, as he's never been a coffee snob.
Here are the reasons why I love this product:
1. It taste fantastic...very smooth.
2. It is portable. All you need is a cup of hot water...and no special machines needed.
3. It is not expensive.
4. It has a good shelf life.
5. It comes in a glass jar, which I prefer over other materials as it is non-porous and see-through.
So, if you, too, are a coffee snob, consider the trend "higher end" coffee companies now offer instant coffee. I've tried their coffee, and while good, they haven't mastered the process. Stick to Nescafe...they know what they are doing!
