Nescafe Green Blend (Waitrose)
I understand the concept that green tea is filled with antioxidants, but I have to say this is the first time I have seen green coffee available as a drink, marketed as having similar health benefits. In actual fact there are a mix of regular roasted and green beans in this drink, it isn't entirely made up of green beans.
When the drink is mixed up I have to say it looks and smells exactly as you would expect Nescafe instant to be, the drink isn’t green in colour or anything else strange (thankfully). I added a little milk exactly as I normally would when making coffee too.
I thoroughly enjoyed the flavour, but again I couldn't pick up on any tremendous differences from regular instant coffee. The drink had a pleasant rich but fresh flavour which I would happily buy again. It made a good cup of instant coffee and any extra antioxidants can’t be a bad thing!
