Recently I received a jar of Gevalia Millicano instant coffee to review. The review was arranged by Smartson. Call me biased but I must say this is pretty good instant coffee, probably the best I have ever tried. And without any doubt the most unique. Unlike other instant coffees, this one contains powdered coffee beans. As a result there is a noticeable depth of flavor, body and aroma. I don’t know how much powdered beans it contains but enough to make its presence felt.
The powdered beans does not completely dissolve, you notice some sediment at the bottom of the cup, just like with brewed coffee. This instant coffee is somewhere between ‘regular’ instant coffee and brewed coffee. An interesting and unique product.
