Disclourse: I received a free sample of Nescafe Coffee-mate for the purpose of my review. Opinions are 100% my own.
Some days are just harder than others. They can be so hard you can’t even wait for the coffee pot to brew. I know. I have had those days. I am a huge fan of coffee but I have always preferred brewed to instant.
In fact, I have been known to wrinkle my nose when people say they drink instant. I was a coffee snob!
I received a sample of Nescafe with Coffee-mate instant coffee in Hazelnut flavor. I was pretty excited to try it and prove to myself that instant coffee was lacking something.
I just knew instant coffee could not be as good as drip. I knew it. And I was wrong!
I could not believe how awesome this instant coffee was.
I was so impressed that I ran down the hall and had James try it even though he does not like hazelnut.
James and I were both really surprised by the flavor, texture, and creaminess. It did not taste instant AT ALL. It was so smooth and pleasant.
We both liked how easy Nescafe with Coffee-mate was to use. Simply heat up some water, stir in a couple of tablespoons, and enjoy! I like my coffee really creamy so instead of the two tablespoons the bottle recommended I used three.
Another thing I really liked about Nescafe with Coffee-mate was that it was just coffee and cream. There was not tons of added sugar. It does contain sugar just like most flavored creamers due but it was not overtly sweet. James and I both have been cutting back on sugar in recent months. I have even gotten to the point that I do not add sugar to my coffee just creamer. So Nescafe with Coffee-mate was perfect.
I think Nescafe with Coffee-mate is perfect to use if you only need to make one cup quickly. I also think it would be perfect for office use. You could simply keep the container in your desk drawer, heat up your water, and make your coffee. No more office-mates stealing your creamer or coffee!
Nescafe with Coffee-mate comes in three flavors: Hazelnut, French Vanilla, and Creamy Original. After I realized James did not like hazelnut flavor, I picked up french vanilla for him which he enjoyed. While James and I were discussing the uses of this particular instant coffee I realized I would probably love a mocha or caramel flavor and James would love a peppermint mocha flavor.
I would highly recommend Nescafe with Coffee-mate to any coffee drinker especially if you only make one cup at a time versus a whole pot. As previously mentioned, I think it would be great for office use.
