I thought I was buying out of date coffee!


I have bought Moccona for many, many years and really enjoyed it. The last two jars of differing types tasted burnt and bitter with an aftertaste like off milk mixed with bitumen. I thought something must have gone wrong with the packaging in transit but having read what others have written, I must agree with the general consensus that the manufacturer has lost the plot. This coffee is expensive. It feeds a common addiction many have for caffeine and the truly exquisite taste of high quality coffee. Your blindness and arrogance have ensured you have ruined any chance I would buy your coffee again, along with others by the look of it. Congratulations on your top level barista, business and customer skills.

Moccona poor service


I agree with other contributors- Moccona Rich No 9 has apparently changed their formula, the coffee is undrinkable but the 1800 phone number (Andrea) refuses to reimburse or replace. Extremely poor customer service, actually non existence customer service

Rich 9 coffee is now disgusting


We have been buying Rich 9 for years. I keep buying more jars costing me a fortune everytime, just hoping the next one will be the same as normal. I even rang the company and left my number, they couldn’t even return my call.
I hope they go back to the original flavour, but as of now they have lost a customer. Very sad. Very disappointed

Moccona Rich No. 0


Cannot believe what they have done to our coffee. Totally agree with All previous reviews. We have been buying, and loving Rich 9 for years, and thought we had bought a dodgy jar, so we bought another ! HUGE mistake, it tastes disgusting, just like the other jar! Premium price for this terrible tasting coffee. Another previously great product down the drain...
Who ever made this Clanger decision should be sacked !!!

What have you done Moccona?


A loyal Moccona Rich Blend for years. I have just brought my next 3 jars and have just thrown it out. I don’t know what Moccona have done but obviously they have changed the recipe. It is now the worst tasting coffee I have ever tasted, it tastes burnt and leaves a foul aftertaste in your mouth. I tried to give Moccona a chance by letting them know first BUT obviously they don’t care as I haven’t had a response. I’m guessing they will start caring when their sales fall dramatically. From a line from the movie “Pretty Woman” “Big Mistake, HUGE”! Tetley extra strong tea for me now.

Purchased in February 2020 at Woolworths.



I have been drinking Moccona rich for years and now it appears they have changed the product. It is absolutely disgusting the worst coffee I have ever had! Why change something that was so good.
Lost me as a customer, if I could rate it zero stars I would

Moccona Rich Coffee flavour change


I’ve been drinking Moccona Coffee for years now. Started with Indulgence and moved to Rich. Always found it to be the best instant coffee but recently they have changed the product and it’s now utterly disgusting...I’m devo!! Judging by other reviews it sounds as though they’re changing all recipes....I’m gone

I drank this for years and raved about it but the new blend is horrible. I changed to the Rich Moconna and now they have done the same to it. I don't know what to drink now.

Still crap.


I drank mocconna no5 for all my coffee drinking days. For years. I loved it. Then it changed to dirt. So I bought a coffee machine and bought every other brand of coffee. I since had to buy instant coffee and though I would give mocconna another try. sorry everyone ! Still tastes like absoulete crap. Black and gold tastes better so Ive heard. Turn away or you will be disappointed !

Purchased in November 2019 at IGA for A$6.00.

Dreadful. Would refund.


Sydney, Australia. Moccona classsic 5 coffee tastes so bad I assumed the milk had gone off or the lid had been kept off. Will avoid at all costs. It tastes bitter and hard to keep down without milk and sugar. Created this account just to neg the coffee.

Vile. Buy Nescafe blend 43


We had Mocconna supplied to us years ago. Staff brought their own as they were displeased with the offerings. It's now nov 2019 and now dumped with 2 tins of " moccona smooth". Just simply horrible.

Our purchasing dept has just bought nescafe blend 43 at my request.

Everyone couldn't be happier.

Moccona, what a joke. 5 - one kilo tins about to go to waste.

Has Moccona forgotten their 1980/90's TV Commercial ?


I would laugh if another coffee company did a send-up of Moccona's TV advert from the 1980/90's to show what people think of Moccona these days. If you have forgotten, people in the Moccona TV advert would run out of a home vomiting because they were served something other than Moccona. Seems Moccona has forgotten their own TVC given their latest offerings are best suited to drain cleaning.
As far as coffee goes these days, Moccona Classic should be taken off the shelves.

Vile, burnt, bitter and it leaves a horrible aftertaste. I don't believe for an instant Moccona carried out consumer testing. They decided to fatten their bottom line by going cheap on their ingredients. If they're smart they'll change it back, but after they scammed loyal customers by removing the "new richer aroma" label, while keeping the new inferior gross tasting flavour, I don't trust them at all now. Bye bye, Moccona.

Jars not able to be opened by older people


Since my husband passed away, I am unable to buy a jar of Moccona because I can’t get the lid off! There is just no way to grip it. I have reverted to another brand sadly

Gary P.asked

Is Moccona Classic 5 Medium roast Caffeinated? It is advertised on Google therefore answer on Google.

1 answer

I don’t actually drink the Classic 5 but it is definitely caffeinated. Moccona does do a decaf though which I think Coles and Woolworths stock



What's the point of asking a question? It falls on deaf ears. You simply don't care. All about the money. The stuff is crap and you know it STOP lying to us all. Destroyed an icon. Bugger your french flavour. Angry furious over how we consumers have been jilted. Just another BIG company doing what they please. Disgraceful Moccona.

Consider Moccona a drain cleaner these days !.
Best instant coffee's are: Natures Cuppa, 100% Arabica Freeze Dried Organic Coffee 100g $8 at Woolworths, Coles own brand Freeze Dried Organic 100g $4.50 or best of all, Aldi's Colombian Freeze Dried coffee 100g for $3.25 (when available). Nescafe has added a "Colombian" jar ($11 for 100g) to their range which is 100% Arabica and tastes great. The good thing is Nescafé does not make this coffee, its from the same people that made Carte Noire instant coffee. Hope this helps. bye


Wow, I am lucky that I don't drink Moccona enough to tell the difference between the old blend and the new, but I do notice that there is a distict aftertaste that reminds me of tobacco. That cannot be good. I don't understand the arrogance of the company to change what was working, to something that makes so many consumers unhappy. Moccona.....you stupid fools!!
