Not All Instant Coffees Are Created Equal
We at EnjoyBetterCoffee.com have many great brands and roasts of coffee, all imported from Europe and made for the European market. In fact, several brands we offer are top sellers, either in their home country or on the world market.
This week, our focus is on top brands of instant coffee. You may know that instant coffee is a third of all the retail brewed coffee drunk around the world. In Western Europe, where high-quality coffee is enjoyed early and often, instant coffee has 25% of the consumer market. Coffee from the European market is darker, stronger and more intense, and you’ll be happy to know that this applies to European brands of instant coffee too. Here’s some of the best instants we offer.
It all starts with Nescafe. Literally the introduction of instant coffee to the mass market can be attributed to the creation of Nescafe by Nestle in the 1930’s. Already producing instant chocolate beverages, Nescafe’s move to instant coffee and instant tea transformed the consumer coffee market, and Nescafe sales took off. We offer several roasts and flavors, including Nescafe Instant Espresso, which consistently is on the top-ten lists of the best instant coffees. Strong, rich and velvety, the pure Arabica beans ensure the best flavor of this coffee.
Nescafe Gold Cappuccino, another top-reviewed instant coffee drink, has premium sugar and milk already added in. The cappuccino tastes rich, with a crema that is silky. We have boxes of 8 individual packets at such a low price when combined with the discount below, you can give them a try for practically nothing.
Nescafe also makes a 3 In 1 Classic instant coffee available as individual sticks. Europeans have already discovered the convenience of instant coffee with cream and sugar added. Nescafe 3 In 1 has a great taste, some sweetness, and earns a near-perfect score in reviews. Like other instants, this is also a good base for a coffee drink or iced coffee.

Chicory Coffee Originated in France
Chicory is a flowering plant that has a tough stem, purple flowers and its leaves are often used fresh in salads. To make chicory coffee, the plants are roasted, ground and then brewed into a coffee. While many people think chicory is similar to coffee in taste, you might find it has a bit of a nutty taste. During the 1800’s, a coffee shortage was addressed by brewing and drinking chicory. Later, it became popular to mix chicory in coffee, no more so than in New Orleans, a city that prides itself on chicory coffee. We carry 2 brands of chicory drinks, and both are eligible for the discount above.
Leroux: We have 2 sizes of instant chicory in jars, and ground chicory, made to be brewed as you would brew coffee, both naturally caffeine-free. It’s delicious alone or mixed in coffee or hot chocolate.
Ricore: This instant drink made with coffee and chicory. When combined with coffee, the roasted chicory creates a unique and delicious taste.
Other Coffee Alternatives With No Caffeine
We have several instant drinks that combine barley, chicory, rye and malted grains to create a flavorful drink that is all natural.
We have Cafix in 2 blends, both are rich and smooth, with no acid or caffeine. Pero Instant is very mild, with low acidity, and can be enjoyed on its own, or mixed with other ingredients to create special drinks.
Jacobs and Douwe Egberts Instant Coffees
Douwe Egberts Pure Gold instant coffee wins many awards for its smooth, balanced flavor, creamy mouthfeel and strong aroma. It blends well for mochas and iced coffee, or just simple chocolate syrup. Douwe Egberts Aroma Rood instant will remind you of Aroma Rood ground: medium roasted, balanced, with a special sweetness. Douwe Egberts Pure Indulgence is a dark roast, slightly more intense, with a rich flavor and soft feel. Be sure to check out the other Douwe Egberts instant roasts.
Jacobs Kronung instant, another brand that is recognized as being at the top of the instant market, has the same flavor, and the same special aroma, as the ground version. Jacobs Cronat Gold is slightly milder, with a smooth flavor. Jacobs Crema instant is made from 100% Arabica beans, finely ground for ultimate mixability. Jacobs Americano instant is also entirely Arabica beans, and also ground fine. Try Jacobs instant Cappuccino, a creamy, aromatic and sweet drink, with a surprisingly solid crema.
Coffee In The News
Swiss Won’t Stockpile Coffee Anymore For This One Reason
After World War I, Switzerland enacted an emergency reserve system for food staples such as sugar, rice, edible oils, animal feed, and raw coffee. Law requires that retailers of these products store some percentage of stock in case of war, natural disaster or epidemics. A new plan, just released by the government, will allow coffee stockpiling to end by 2022. The plan stated that coffee “is not essential for life” since it has no calories, and does not support nutritional needs. There does seem to be some opposition to the plan (we won’t say a conflict is ‘brewing’), in particular from the organization that oversees the food stockpiles. A final decision is expected in November.
As always, enjoy better coffee and thanks from the EnjoyBetterCoffee Team!
