Aldi Freeze Dried Decaff Coffee - £1.39/100g..

Found 10th Jul 2014
I'm long known that Aldi is the best place to buy decently drinkable instant, freeze-dried coffee. Their 200g 'Gold' refill packs work out at 99.5p per 100g which is uber-cheap. However it's always bugged me that decaffeinated is so much more expensive when all they do is soak the beans is warm water to extract the caffeine.
So I was rather pleased this morning when I saw my local Aldi (Blackwater) had reduced their 100g jars of Gold freeze-dried decaff from £1.69 to £1.39. I don't know if this is national but I suspect it is. I bought six jars and will probably buy another six next time I'm there. After all, instant coffee keeps very well in air-tight conditions.
PS - Tesco's own-brand decaff is £1.90/100g for comparison.

This is cheap however most people buy coffee to enjoy and the extra few quid for a better tasting coffee is worth it. If this is anything like the rest of the Aldi alternatives that i keep seeing advertised on the tele every 2 minutes it will probably end up stuck in the cupboard or bin.

Not true. The vast majority of Aldi
products are indistinguishable from
the brands. I gather that you don't
like Aldi.
I too get narked at decaf often costing
much more than ordinary so this is to
be applauded. Hot and thanks for the
post.

I like Aldi but the coffee is gash.

I am a regular Aldi shopper and ardent defender, however, I am also realistic. Some stuff is good, some stuff is mediocre & plenty of stuff is cheap tat. e.g lots of sugar or bulking etc.

Coffee is one I steer clear of

Actually, coffee's the one thing you would expect the German discounters to do well (that and sausages). We get the same stuff they sell in Deutschland and Helmut und Marta sind immer sehr pingelig about the Kaffee they drink. Personally, I rather like the taste of Aldi coffee (both sorts). For me, it's as least as good as the stuff you get from Tesco & Sainsburys.

I have tried this and its dreadful.I like my coffee and prefer Black Gold or Carte Noire.Some people think Aldi products are all good but they are not.Cold.

Err..'viol' is the French word for rape. You may not like Aldi coffee but this is taking things a bit too far...
