These any good?
Poor relation to Millicano and the Cafe Noir offerings imho. Also only a 60g tin, whilst the others are 100g.
I like this better than it's milicano and cafe noir rivals... Although still prefer my dolce gusto
Tried this and didn't like it.
Kenco Millicano much better
Need to use a lot more than standard quantity for instant coffee but guessing the rest are too.... Seems about the right price for it, wouldn't pay the rrp.
If this stuff is a 'poor relation to Millicano' then it must be really really crap IMHO!

That Millicano is one of the worst coffees I have ever tasted - when it was launched a few months ago - absolute rubbish coffee!
Tried all these as they've come out, Millicano is absolute crap, Carte Noire Instinct is fairly good and Azera is the best, holds the 'crema' well even after milk is added and is nearly as good as proper filter coffee with 99% less hassle, hot at this price!

"nearly as good as proper filter coffee" ...... what's "proper" about coffee with all the essential oils removed? If it's nearly as good as that it must be rubbish.
There's a lot of c#@p spoken about coffee - the way it is made and attention to detail is far more important than the raw materials - that's why expresso coffee in the UK is bitter while the same brand made with the same machine in Portugal isn't. They know coffee, here it's just a commodity. They know how to make it, here "barista" is just a fancy title imported from the good ol' US of A. Coffee stateside is generally dire, so we've nothing much to learn there (apart from marketing).

The worst coffee I have ever had anywhere was Italy. Acidic yet bitter and even more undrinkable than Starburnts. I would just avoid anything espresso derived or made from those wretched machines. Raw materials do count. There is a reason that Arabica beans are highlighted in favour of the Robusta variety.

I found this to be much more flavoursome with a smoother mouth-feel than the other brands mentioned. I'll be stocking up.

Yep, you said it yourself, you've spoken a hell of a lot of crap about it!

I avoided mentioning Italy..... I've had the same experience and it is due to poorly maintained equipment, incorrect heat/pressure and generally a lack of care. The same coffee and the same machine elsewhere can give you a totally different experience. However, Italians seem to like it that way......8)
I agree that there are gross differences Arabica/Robusta etc., but handing is far more important - I've had some really bad 100% Arabica. The finished product is what counts.....
