I haven't had and bought this coffee since last year as I don't like it, however I had a cup recently and thought I'd give my review for those who are wondering. In my and some others opinions, it leaves an after taste that's not very nice, it's a classic case of you get what you pay for. When it comes to coffee, it's better to pay that bit extra if you want to really enjoy and saviour it.

Lucky it was cheap!
$4 on special Woolworths. Smells vaguely like musty vegatables no coffee aroma. 3 teaspoons in a regular cup, light coffee flavour with a weird sour finnish, tastes like this isnt 100% coffee beans or mixed with some pretty low quality beans. Gives a decent caffeine hit at least i defiantly felt it. Overall Bleehhhh....

$4 Full-Bodied blah.
Saw this on special at Woolworths and couldn't resist. Cracked it open to discover almost no aroma. Three teaspoons of granules made an insipid vending machine coffee - like dishwater. I upped the concentration to 5 teaspoons and the result was simply a sour cup of yuck. A co-worker often mocks cheap International Roast, which I don't mind, when I find it in motel cupboards, but this is just about the worst coffee I've sampled.

Is this coffee?
I wanted to try other coffee other than what I am used to that is why when I saw the Full bodied RTimms coffee at Woolworth on sale I bought it. To my disappointing first cup that tasted flat and almost with a tinge of sourness don’ t think I’d like a second cup or any after this. I hope Woolworth will accept it back.

Doesn't smell like coffee...
Very unusual smell when in jar. Kind of like soil with some decaying vegetable matter mixed in.
Fortunately it tastes better than it smells once you've actually made a cuppa with it!
It's a decent enough instant coffee, an okay buy at half price.
Now that jar has been opened a few times, the unusual smell has dissipated, leaving the remaining contents smelling pretty much like coffee!
We changed to Coles Robert Timms Full Bodied and Espresso some years ago because Nescafe 43 became too strong for our palette and the ALDI Nescafe was also not attractive in flavour. We have been very satisfied with this product until this past week when our new $8 bottle is truly horrible. The flavour is not full bodied. It tastes cheap. My partner says it tastes as if the mixture has chicory in it. It is my habit to buy two bottles at a time. If the second bottle is this bad, we'll be seeking out another type of instant coffee.
I normally buy Nescafe in the large can but on that particular day Woolies had a can of Robert Timms on special so I thought I'd save myself eight dollars and go with the Robert Timms. I was expecting to be disappointed as I have tried other brands before but always preferred the Nescafe. I can honestly sat that I am now a Robert Timms fan. The coffee is rich and full bodied with a smooth taste, not bitter at all. I wish that I had tried it years ago and am now a true convert.
It's like civet coffee, only instead of roasting the beans they roasted the excrement
After they pick the beans from the faecal matter, I suspect robert timms coffee corp would have to come in and roast that organic matter and put it in their jars. It's the only explanation that I can come up with, why their coffee tastes the way it does. I can't say I've had civet coffee, but I can say with a great deal of confidence that I've had something that resembles the civet excrement namely in the form of robert timms coffee.
just love your coffee
i have always used nescafe until a friend told me to try Robert Timms . and i love it . great flavour .smooth and Rich . Every Jar i buy of Robert Timms is always just as flavoursome not like other brands i will never go back to nescafe now i dont miss the bitterness of nescafe .
Bought this @ woolies as it was on sale. Giving them the benefit of the doubt, maybe it was an old stock. I'm no coffee connoisseur, but I do drink a lot of coffee and i was greatly disappointed as it was not exactly "full-bodied" and has this sour taste. I'm still a big fan of those ones that come in a tea bag though (italian roast)
Bland and disappointing
I purchased this recently and bought it because it was the cheapest at Woolworths. I am sorry about this and will avoid it in future as it tastes bland and has no aroma at all. It was well packaged and I fell for it. Never again, stay away from this if you are a regular coffee drinker.
price and packaging
Of all the economy priced coffees this one is the pick. Unlike many cheaper brands the drink does not appear weak to the tastebuds. The full bodied flavour allows you to taste the richness and smooth blend straight away. Whilst the packaging may not be as fancy as more expensive brands the size quantity makes up for any negatives. The value of larger jars is only complimented further by the premium blend. This is clearly the drink for any coffee lover sticking to a weekly budget.
Very good value for money
Packaging is not as appealing as more expensive brands
