In this best instant coffee review i will be focusing on the Kenco Millicano whole bean coffee. It can be really difficult trying to find a decent tasting instant coffee, especially if you are used to coffee from a cafeteria or use a coffee machine to make your cup of brew. For people that only drink instant coffee on a daily basis the process is a lot more simpler, their taste buds are used to the instant flavour so they can usually just pretty much drink any brand of instant coffee without having to worry about it.
But that does not work for people who only drink the best coffee either from single serve coffee machines or from filter machines or cafeterias. Our taste buds have become so used to the great taste afforded by these methods of drinking whole bean roast coffee’s, that when we are forced to have to drink a cup of instant we immediately feel like throwing up!
But thankfully the makers of these instant coffees have been raising their game as of late and there are now a few instant coffee brands available that are not only drinkable but actually do not taste too bad either! One of these coffee brands is Kenco Millicano.
Kenco Millicano is made from a combination of instant and whole bean coffee. The whole bean is ground down to a fine powder and then added to the instant granules so that you get a full flavor from the drink. I would say from my first taste of this coffee that it is quite smooth and velvety, but also has a nice strong whole bean taste to it that goes down really well.
The packaging that is used for this brand of instant coffee is really quite smart also, you can tell just from the time that you are buying something that is better than the other makes of instant coffee. Obviously the price is a little bit more than your average jar of coffee, but in my opinion it is well worth the extra expense, because it will reward you with a nice full bodied flavor.
The Kenco tagline for this coffee is “Discover Kenco Millicano, the closest thing to a ‘proper’ coffee in an instant”. I have to say at the moment i cannot argue with that sentiment.
Of course there is always room for improvement and i will be purchasing other high quality brands of instant coffees so that i can compare them. I just hope that these companies will continue improving the flavor so that one day we can drink a cup of instant coffee without feeling that it is nowhere near as good as a real cup of coffee.
