Every day enjoyment
I have been drinking this brand of coffee for a couple of years now. I used two moderately heaped teaspoons and finish off with a good dash of pouring cream. This instant coffee does actually produce a pretty decent crema on top. I would prefer the consistency of this coffee experience than the hit and miss activity of the Melbourne barista scene. (And every few months it drops to half price @$9 so I stock up making it incredible value).
The best instant coffee I've tried!
I love this instant coffee! It's the best I've ever tried. At first I thought it had somewhat of a peculiar taste - it wasn't bad at all, just not the normal 'instant coffee taste' maybe because that's what I was expecting but it tasted more like a coffee you would get from a cafe. Definitely worth a try!
For an instant coffee, it’s a good morning brew!
Sometimes when a bloke wants to treat himself to a “fancy” morning coffee without the big price tag, he just needs to spoil himself right?
That’s what I’ve got with the Crema blend right here!
Now I can boil the billy and read the paper while feeling as if a barista has served my morning fix and warmed my slippers! It’s that good!
The crema title is no lie either, it’s definitely a thicker brew than the old number 5!
Don’t tell the wife that I like it, she might find herself out of business in the mornings I can sneak this bad boy in ;-)

I recognise everyone has different tastes in coffee, so you may not agree with my review. I tried the Moccona Barista Reserve after years of drinking (and liking) the more standard Moccona product when I could not get something made by a barista. As instant coffee goes, the Moccona in the glass jar is the best instant out there IMO. So, based on the advertising, it looked like it could be a step up from the normal stuff. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. It is worse than Blend 43 or some generic coffee- I have tasted better coffee on an airplane- the horrible aftertaste lingered for at least an hour afterwards. Just don't- stick with the normal Moccona.
Substitute Coffee for Nescafé Barista Smooth
Following Nescafé removal of its lovely Barista Smooth, I tried Nescafé Gold Smooth which has an awful taste. I've found the perfect substitute for Nescafé Barista Smooth, it's Moconna Barista Reserve Crema. At $18 for a 175g tin, it's value for money and comes in very close to cafe style coffee, an absolutely beautiful coffee to start the day with.
