London news I blind tasted instant coffees to see which was best and results were surprising Uk news
PremierLeague-News.Com - There was one gem hidden among there, and I’d never have seen it coming.
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Okay, I’ll admit it. I’m a complete coffee snob. Buying a coffee from an independent London café is one of my favourite past times, particularly if it’s paired with a good book on a Saturday morning, in a quiet corner. Even at home I have my own machine, bought in lockdown, where I grind my own beans and desperately try to froth my milk to the same standard as a barista. Disclaimer: I’m still a long way off. You’ll know by now that we love a taste test here at MyLondon, so I thought who better to taste test the instant coffees on the market than a self-titled coffee ‘connoisseur’? I wanted to find out two things. One, could I successfully match the coffee with its brand in a blind test, and two, could I be converted to instant coffee? Read on to find out. My coffees lined up, ready to be blind tasted Cup 1 My Guess: Tesco Flavour profile: Very bitter. This tasted cheap to me. Sorry, but it did. Overall rating: 2/10. Never going to convert me. Verdict: It was Aldi. Priced at £1.69.

. I love Aldi, and their £2.29 coffee beans are amazing. But the instant was very bad. Cup 2 My Guess: Aldi Flavour profile: Much nicer. Smoother, and a more subtle smell and taste. Overall rating: 5/10. It was fine. If someone gave it to me at their house I would happily drink it, not just out of politeness. Verdict: Kenco. Priced at 2.50, it was a middle of the road price to match its middle of the road taste. Cup 3 My Guess: Nescafé Flavour profile: Embarrassingly, I claimed to know this one, claiming it to be “very standard, very bland”, but I also thought it was fine enough to be one of the main brands. Overall rating: 6/10, not bad Verdict: It was Tesco! Priced at £1.75, just a fraction more than Aldi’s, but a lot nicer taste.
