Beep Beep – do excuse me for this non make up related post but I feel like this is a public health warning.
I stumbled across this nice looking jar of coffee last week, called Nescafe Green Blend. The idea of this instant coffee is that its full of Antioxidants and is a mixture of green and roasted coffees.
Healthy coffee? Sounds good to me. I am a coffee fiend, I love the stuff.
First the aroma…smells mild. It looks very mild. I like mild coffee, so this is fine.
Then you take a few gulps and….its tastes like dishwater. There’s no hint of a coffee like flavour. It tastes of nothing, just sort of…dirt.
It. is. disgusting.
It is the MOST disgusting thing I have ever had in my mouth (no jokes, please).
I mean, I’m Chinese and I will finish food and drinks that been given to me no matter what – but I could NOT finish this. I have tried three times (with different quantities to experiment) and I couldn’t do more than three mouthfuls.
I emailed Nescafe (just want my money back, I feel cheated) and they were all like:
“When this product was created samples were tested and consumer research carried out. The positive response we had gave us the confidence to proceed with the distribution and sales.
There are differences in taste within the range of NESCAFÉ products resulting from variations in blend and roasting. NESCAFÉ Green Blend is made like regular instant coffee except that we are using some unroasted green coffee beans ( 35%) as well. This results in a subtly different taste to similar coffee where all the coffee beans have been roasted.
We always try to maintain the highest possible standards for our products and therefore we are very sorry that you dislike this product.
Thank you once again for taking the trouble to contact us. I hope this reply answers your questions and that you enjoy our products in the future.”
Sorry, WHO tested this? Was it a bunch of tea drinkers? Was a group of cats? Was it Amy Winehouse?
Anyway I want my money back, what happened to the – “If you aren’t happy with this product return it for a refund” policy? No mention.
But then again they’re probably still busy dealing with the customers who are returning their coffees that possibly have shards of glass in them.
Actually, what I wanted to ask is if anyone else has tried it and what they thought? Do I have a faulty jar?!
