Tastes very average
I didn't think this tasted particularly good, will not buy again.

Best Instant Coffee out there
If you have to drink instant coffee this is the one to reach for. Great fine consistency and strong flavour. It is the most pricy instant coffee but worth the price. When it goes on sale for 7$ or $9 I always buy 2. I have been drinking this coffee for years.
Purchased at Coles for $11.00.
The best instant coffee yet.
This instant coffee is the closest in flavour to brewed coffee. It is expensive so I stock up when its on special. It could possibly be made more cost effective by it being sold in larger jars, or possibly foil packaging rather than glass jars. Or maybe Nescafe could accept returns, wash, sterilise, and re-use.

Perfect Instant Coffee
I tried this coffee around 8 years ago at a friends house and loved it. I was hooked and have bought it ever since. Can't enjoy any other instant coffee now so I usually keep stocked up. Would be good if they did it in a larger jar because all my family drink it now and we go through a few and it's not cheap! Regardless of price I still wouldnt change and tend to stock up if it goes on special at Coles or Woolies. Definitely recommend.
Purchased in September 2019 at Woolworths for $11.00.
Smell, taste, Ahhhhhh..... No better instant coffee out there. 100% conversion rate of all family and mates that have tried it. My only disappointment is that I cant find a bigger jar.

an incredible instant coffee which has the strength and flavor that is similar to a barista made coffee. I have a heaped teaspoon with some sugar, add water and a little milk, the crem sticks to the mug as i drink. honestly, i have found this coffee to be more delicious and with enough oomf then half the barista made coffee i buy although it doesn't compete with a good barista made coffee. Since i discovered nescafe short black, i buy less coffees. It is a bit expensive but i can't resist. very impressed.
Absolutely divine - My life now has meaning again
I was once a lost soul... in search of my better second half. I sipped on Moccona blends which would just leave flakes upon the roof of my teeth.
I picked up the Nescafe short blend at the local supermarket and a whoosh of life came rushing through my pure empty soul. I knew it was my time.
I paid the checkout lady, with a great big grin. She knew what was happening to me. She seen this before. She said to me as i was walking "Enjoy your cuppa of liquid Gold, friend."
My life is now complete. I have found my better second half.
Thank you Nescafe
Bless your almighty soul.
Heaven on earth - Nobody can explain the pleasure I feel
I was delighted with a new found lust for life when a colleague mentioned to try this Nescafe Gold.
Little did I know that it would change my life.
I wake up and it is the first thing on my mind, when my cuppa is empty I get that sinking depressed feeling again but alas I live for the next cuppa of Nescafe Gold.
If I didn't have this product in my life I think my lifeless body would be in a ditch on main north road.
Thank you Nescafe.
a very good coffee
I nearly died when Nescafe Short Black became unavailable, but then it reappeared in new Gold packaging. It was a happy time. Same great taste but much better, and the lid is so much easier for arthritic hands to deal with. I have found that a heaped teaspoon gives me the perfect cup of heartstarter in the morning and smiling pleasure for morning and afternoon tea.
Mornings with coffee is the only way to go. Good heart starter, and I should know I drink a lot of coffee. Awesome stuff. Get some beans into ya. lol
They've finally done it - A drinkable instant coffee!
I have never liked any instant coffee, but this stuff is really good. As a short black, it tastes better than a lot of barista-made short blacks I've had. There's no terrible espresso aftertaste either. I also recommend making iced coffee with this (very refreshing in summer). Would definitely buy again.
Very good almost excellent
Very rich deep coffee taste and aroma. I find 1 heaped teaspoon is a good amount. Very happy and will probably purchase again
Astonishing! A drinkable instant!
This is the best instant coffee I have ever tasted and I've drunk a lot of muck advertising itself as such since the 1960s. While not really tasting like a real short black, it doesn't taste of tar or treacle, which is a plus in my book. Moreover, it's eminently quaffable.
Remarkably good for instant.
No real kick, but hey it's instant.
The best instant coffee I have ever tasted
This is the best instant coffee I have ever tasted. It combines a lovely taste of good coffee with the time advantage of being instant.
The jar is too small, not available if buying online from Coles or WW last time I checked
A delicious coffee. So superior that it's hard to believe it's 'instant'. This product transports the drinker to a better place.
A delicious 'crema' appears upon the surface of this coffee. If served in an espresso cup it will have even true connoisseurs believing it's the product of a professional coffee machine. As well, served with milk it's equally a treat.
Difficult to find in Australia.
Questions & Answers
Why is woolworths not stocking this best instant coffee anymore!!!!!!!! We tried the black roast one they had in its place and its like mud its awful. Please Please bring back the short black its the only coffee i buy
I can’t speak for Woolworths so I have no idea, I hope not. There was an out of stock sign at my local Woolies this week. Coles had it on special for $7 Up to 21/7/20, but it had sold out, I got a raincheck, so hopefully they will also get it in stock soon. I only have one and a half jars left. Argh!
It hasnt been in stock at our woolies for at least 5 weeks. There is no ticket or space for it anymore either. But there is a new new nescafe coffee in its plce called black roast. But its awful!!!
Why can’t I buy Nescaf short black in the United States?
I live in coventry, England , uk. Where can I buy short black in the uk?
I don't know, but I believe the product has a different name in the UK (Nescafe expresso), see this link http://www.nescafe.co.uk/products_flash_en_co_uk.axcms#/?content=detail&imageid=49
Hello, Further to the above, the larger formatted Tesco and Sainsbury supermarkets sell jars of Nescafe Espresso which is the same product. Best wishes.
