It's better then the other Maccona but still....
I purchased this today as it is on special at Woollies for $9.
It is actually smoother then the Intense I have been buying but still it lacks the bitterness & coffee flavour I want or use to get from Intense (Nescafe) of old.
I basically have resigned myself that the 2 main players in the Instant coffee market just don't give a toss about the consumer any more. This is good with out being spectacular. I would not purchase at full price, at half price it was worth a go & while as stated it is decent it still lacks that killer hit that you SHOU...LD expect from a premium coffee at a premium price. Still smooth & if only the smoothness of this coffee was mixed with the Intense flavour with out the now dirty after taste then I would be on a winner.. The search continues.

I have purchased this coffee for quite some time but the latest leaves a lot to be desired it basically turns to dust when i add the water definately will not buy again
Purchased in November 2019 at Woolworths for $15.00.
The first two tins were so delicious but today I opened a brand new tin and I tipped the first cup out. Ive tried different amounts of coffee and its undrinkable. For an expensive instant coffee its bloody awful. I guess thats why it was on special. Feeling ripped of and Ill not buy Moccona again. Twice bitten.

Great tasting coffee
Not a Maccona fan but recently trialed Maccona Barista Reserve Rich Espresso and really loved it. Great tasting instant coffee like freshly brewed at coffee shop but in the convenience at home. Found it to be a bit expensive but worth the try
for instant coffee it's good
I used to have the glass jar Moccona, saw this on special at $9 bought from Woolworths, for instant coffee this Barista Reserve Rich Espresso is good tasting no bitter.

If you have to resort to instant coffee...
I only drink instant when pushed, so I am constantly looking for that elusive "almost like brewed coffee" taste. As this was on special for $9 (half price) I thought I'd give it a go. I was amazed by how good it is, starting with the aroma, and then the taste. Although it's termed "Rich Espresso" it's smooth, not bitter and has a full-bodied taste when drunk as a flat white. So much better than other instant brand I've tried.

Better then other Moccona instant coffees
Bought this from Woolworths as it was on special at $13 was a bit hesitant to buy but tried it as an espresso shot and its strong but doesn’t have that bitter and acidic taste like other coffees too
PROS: No bitter or acidic aftertaste & tastes good
CONS: Bloody expensive at $18 a tin
This is very, very good
This is an excellent instant coffee. Much, much better than any other instant I’ve had. Better than the ground coffee in sachets which I can never get beyond ‘too weak’. It’s a pantry staple now, for those lazy days when I can’t be bothered to use the pods and froth the milk. But $18 a can is a bit much, so I stock up when it’s on sale.
The best instant coffee!
We have tried all the Barista Reserve coffees and they are really good - the best instant coffee on the market. I agree the price at $18 plus is so expensive - We buy lots when it is on special for $9. It is really great tasting coffee.
The only legit full bodied instant coffee!
I've tried this on special half price today. You know that bitter, diffused acidic aftertaste with the Moccona Espresso #10? It's nothing like this. This one has that great coffee taste that just goes round and round and is solid all the way down your throat with that mild coffee aroma (yes, mild). This is so way better than the Moccona in those glass jars. This is a must try. But I won't buy it at full price. $18 for a can is just too expensive for me. :D
