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.
Horrible makes me sad such a great product has been destroyed by it own maker and they are still not listening
Been drinking it for close to 30 years and can no longer bear the taste since the changes have moved on to a different brand and will not return to classic medium roast unless Moccona returns it to the original blend
WHY? Would you change a fantastic coffee. It tastes like dish water. Awful awful. I no longer enjoy a coffee in the morning. Your commercial now shouldn't have two lovey dovey models sipping moccona lovingly. Should show them with screwed up horrible looks on their faces because this stuff will wreck any romance.

the original blend was perfect
We first started using Moccona 20 years ago and were disgusted with the changed product (richer aroma) when I phoned the customer service department they told me that they had no intention of changing back as consumer research said it was better!
They offered a sample of the suggested French roast but this never arrived.

Moccona's Taste is back
Last year I wrote a scathing review about this coffee an gave it one star. Today , I am glad to say Moccona has it's taste back. It no longer has that burnt coffee bean flavour. I have been a Moccona coffee drinker for over 20 years and I am grateful, they have brought back the original flavour.
Why change a great product?!
The new blend is flat and metallic. It's so disappointing. We've been drinking the Classic No. 5 for 20 years but have switched brands due to the change. When you call Moccona to give feedback or complain they tell you to try the French blend and that the 'improved' blend was trialed and voted on but I'm assuming it was run in Europe or is just a lie to cover cost cutting...Nobody with a sense of taste would drink the new moccona.
The flavour has changed to something horrible, it does not dissolve and the makers of it don’t listen to consumer feedback. We wrote to them advising of the issues and they said
“Our Coffee Specialists upgraded our brewing processes which means we can capture more flavour and aroma from each coffee bean. What this means is our Moccona Classic No 5 taste has moved from a light-medium roast to a true medium; this is what you are noticing.
We believe there is a coffee for every cup. Moccona has a wide range of products, and if you prefer a mild...

Try Coles or Woolworths home brand instant freeze dried Coffee..
We have been buying the 100g Woolworths Home Brand Classic Freeze Dried.. now for the last 9 months.. Its the closest we could find to the old Moccona No 5 Classic.. Woolworths now get our money, we buy it 12 jars at a time.. Haha but its worth it.. Even if they changed it back.. I'd find it hard to go back to Moccona now.. Just terrible treatment of customers. MOCCONA!! Look what you have done!

This is for the number 10 espresso variety in the same jar
We bought the espresso, number 10 variety of this coffee jar. Got the 400gm large jar as even though we hadn't had this coffee in quite some time, we had always loved it! Well not this time! It tastes like some wild animal has peed all over the coffee beans! I had to keep checking my milk as it tasted that bitter and sour I thought maybe the milk had somehow suddenly gone off, but no matter which brand of milk we use it still tastes like a lama peed on the coffee!! Waste of money!! Don't risk wasting $25 on this crap!

What have you done with the Hazelnut and the Caramel Coffee ? Cause it tastes like crap now
What have you done with the Hazelnut and the Caramel Coffee? Cause it tastes like [Word Removed] now, Are you using some disgusting sweetener or something?

Questions & Answers
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.
