If you enjoy gourmet instant coffee, you shouldn't miss Q-Café. Q-Café instant coffee is remarkably creamy and rich, with its own unique buttery mouthfeel. In taste-tests, it's tied with G7 Original as a customer favorite.
Q-Café instant coffee comes in two blends, the Good Morning and the Strong Taste:
Strong Taste (Ngon): This blend has been adjusted slightly and has new packaging to match. It has an extra-bold flavor profile and a slight bitter edge, and is comparable to G7 in its sweetness. Strong Taste also has a distinctly chocolatey aroma with caramel flavor tones. The chocolatey aroma is what's new in this shipment, and we in the office really enjoy the new blend - even if you have tried Strong Taste in the past, you should give it another shot.
Good Morning: This cheerful blend is sweeter (but not too sweet) and creamier, extra-buttery in feel and aroma, a rich and mellow cup. New Englanders will recognize the profile as "coffee regulah," a morning traditon of smooth coffee with plenty of cream and sugar.
Fans of blended variety coffees, such as Trung Nguyen's Creative 2 or Indochine Dark, may enjoy mixing G7 and Q-Café to get a big mug of exceptionally well-rounded instant coffee.
Q Cafe has made only bags of 50 sachets available recently (this shipment also gives 2 bonus sachets per bag, for a total of 52). We also will no longer be carrying the Good Morning version, as our customers seem to prefer the Strong Taste about 4:1 over the Good Morning.
Q-Cafe; a very pleasing coffee
I had originally tried this company's 2 coffees, and liked them both.
However, I find that now that we have only one available, I very much miss the "good Morning" blend.
It was richer, not as up-front with its coffee flavour, and it spared the coffee drinker the coffee breath afterwards.
At present, there is only the "strong Taste" blend, and it is well-named.
I will say that this blend has a noticeable chocolatey presence whereas the G-7 does not.
However, I still miss the richer, creamier blend I so enjoyed.
So, the bottom line--
Strong Taste is good, I give it 4 stars, but I will hold out for their Good Morning blend and hope it returns.
If you drink this blend alongside anything sweet, you will surely notice the pronounced coffee edge.
