So today’s item is everyone favourite – coffee. As I am sure some that may read this website know but I did use to be a massive coffee drinker and it got to the point where I always had a cup of coffee in my hand.
While nowadays I do not drink much coffee – I still do drink it at times and while I was in farm foods I found an instant coffee and you can see the packing to the right (although I do admit the photo is not the best, taken it with my mobile) and it claims to be a 3 in 1.
In terms of how many cups of coffee you get, you get around roughly 10 small size cups (you will see what I mean in a few minutes).
Now to be honest I would go back and check the wrapper and tell you how healthy it is but I am unable to locate it any more but I am sure you can guess it is as healthy as coffee “normally” is.
On the right you are able to see how it is made. First all you got to do is open a cup and add warm water and not boiling water. While I am quite sure some people will comment saying they prefer theirs nice and hot I can tell you right now that the heat of the hot water will be felt by your hand – very quickly.
Once you have added the water you then just leave it a minute or two and then mix it about a bit. Now while I think it comes with sugar and milk (thinking about it, that’s likely what the 3 in 1 thing means) add anything else you want right now.
Below are three photos showing what the cup looks like, what the inside looks like and what the final product taste like.
Now who cares about what it looks like – it is what it TASTE like we care about and well …. it lacks in that department. The coffee itself taste quite plain and even eating the powder itself tasted plain. I tried it a few times with a different amount of water and was disappointed in it and taste the generic coffee everywhere in eduction seem to serve.
However for the cost of it (I recall a few quid max) was quite cheap and you did get quite a bit and for the taste that it was, I suppose it is worth the cost. If you are thinking about getting cheap coffee – this is a good way to go although I do get a feeling this was on a special offer.
