Are you using a different chemical??
Tastes earthy and dirty, But Worst is now making me jittery, agitated, and makes my heart race!! Feels like an anxiety attack, but it is the freaking coffee.
WHaT has been added to this?! Or what is new in the production??
I am not the only one I know affected like this. This is AWfUL.
I have to change brands :(
I love my Coffee, but I certainly don't love this chemical induced reaction.
I was so concerned I googled to see what was going on, and was led here.
Big thumbs down Moccona.
This isn't even about taste any more, it is firstly and foremost a decision based around my health.
Whatever you have done is awful!!!
Only ever feel like this off cheap nasty coffee....so...
Well done, another long term customer walks away.
Goodness me! What have they done to the new number 5? It tastes burnt. Absolutely disgusting! Have changed to coles organic fairtrade and it tastes like the old moccona. Amazes me how Moccona are still in business. They shouldnt be allowed to pass that off as coffee. It's dirty rusty water
Moccona Heft NO Meer Mmmmmm
Every morning stumbling into work I used to look forward to a nice cup of Moccona. That has changed since this new crap has taken it's place. The difference is so noticeable it's bitter and bland as soon as we had our first cup out of the new jar we all screwed up our faces wondering what the heck had gone wrong. If only I new the last jar in our office was that of the old brew I would have stooped to the level of a child and hid it lol.
Good to bad to worse
Moccona Coffee Classic No. 5 bring back the old flavour. Stop trying to improve it as it's not working. We just can't drink it anymore, We are now drinking Robert Timms huge improvement over Moccona, we have purchased our last jar ever being batch no: L16094 16.02 use by Dec 2020
Time for a change
Hi, as I get older the worse my arthritis gets in my fingers. I love the Moccona range but find it difficult to open the lids on the dried instant coffee range. It's true that I can buy this coffee in a different vessel but it also cost a lot more to do so. Any chance you can design some type of pop-up lid?
Bring back the old formula!
I have been drinking Moccona daily for 10 years and this new formula is quite disappointing. Why change something that was good??? It really has been ruined.
Our medium roast formula now tastes burnt like Nescafé when having it black (85-90deg water). As a latte with my lactose free milk, it is a bit metallic with a hazelnut flavour. My morning indulgence is ruined. Only skulling down this new batch out of habit and for the need for caffeine -not enjoyable at all. This may be a good time to quit instant coffee altogether.
My favourite indulgance RUINED!
My morning coffee ruined - please put the Classic No. 5 back to how it was. I cannot live without my morning coffee. I have been drinking this for 25 years. I always carry a small container with me and when i go to friends houses and they offer me a coffee i pull out my Moccona Classic Medium Roast. They laugh but expect it from me. Even if i go to restaurants i take my own coffee. I pay them for the cost of the coffee but they use my coffee as I cannot drink any other coffee. For the past month or so I wondered why my coffee was so bitter and ...I tipped it out a lot and have not enjoyed it. The simple things in life are the best things and I wish you would change back to the original coffee please please please. It tastes like bitter Nescafe that I used to drink 30 years ago until i got onto your coffee. Please bring it back as it is costing me money trying to find other coffee brands that taste similar to yours and I'd rather not. FYI i love the caramel flavour as a special afternoon treat and have got my family onto it too but i really NEED you to listen to the public on this one. Thank you for listening Debbie
Rubbish coffee - period !
Was the best freeze dried coffee going around, was the best tasting coffee going around, but somehow all that changed until some delicate genius in the company thought to save money they would approach another coffee bean grower to save on costs, but what they didn't realise that they would lose customers because of a foul smell and taste.
But they probably have convinced themselves that we would grow to love the taste - ignorant and petulant children running the company.
Deceived by labeling - Its still tastes burnt...
After stopping buying the Classic Medium Roast for months because of the terrible taste of the "New improved flavour" I found all the large jars on the shelf no longer had the new label. I thought Moccona had finally come to its senses and were listening to its customers about what they want. I was very sadly mistaken. Not only did it cost me $14.00, it is the same horrible burnt flavour with the old label attached.... Shame on you Moccona. I did notice that you do not back up your own product by saying on the label - If you are not 100% satisfied with this product return it for a full refund. Because you would be bombarded with returns.
Bring the old stuff back PLEASEEEE
Don't understand why they would have changed this formula, it used to be so good!
When I realised what they did I bought 5jars of the old stuff (only coz that's what was left, im sure a lot of people tried to stock up) and now its finished and I am heartbroken! Please please Moccona bring it back! Listen to the people! Don't you realise the current stock isn't selling!
Bring back the old batch..
I to have found the new number5 classic moccona has changed to the new richer aroma and tastes disgusting. Hubby managed to find a few bags of the old blend so for the last couple of months I’ve been able to still enjoy a coffee but I’m back to the new stuff today and honestly can’t get rid of the foul taste in my mouth. Bring back the old formula would you!!
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.
