My breakfast will never be complete without brewed coffee. However, when I am running late for work, I will end up not having coffee at all since brewing it takes time. I do not have instant coffee at home, but lately I am contemplating on stocking some for instances like that. But there are a lot of instant coffee in the market and I wonder what is the best tasting of all? Nescafe brand is the most popular but is it the best when it comes to taste? I have seen also different flavors like hazelnut, choco fudge, and banoffee (banana-coffee). But I still cannot make up my mind on what instant coffee to buy.

We tried this Nestle 5 in 1 coffee, it smells and tastes great, besides the coffee mate in it which I love on my coffee, it also contains agericus blazei mushrooms and Korean ginseng, I suggest you try it

Nestle is different from Nescafe, am I right? And it is 5 in 1 coffee? All I heard of were 3 in 1 mixes, now there is 5 in 1 already? Makes me wonder what those 5 contents are. Thanks for the suggestion, dear! Have a good day!

Nestle is a company that owns a lot of brands like coffeemate, carnation milk, Milo, yes including Nescafe, for the complete list look here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Nestl%C3%A9_brands . Perhaps it's 5 in one because besides the coffee, sugar and cofeemate, it contains agericus blazei mushrooms http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agaricus_subrufescens which has anticancer properties and strengthens the immune system and Korean ginseng http://www.phytochemicals.info/plants/korean-ginseng.php yes try it and you might just like it, have a nice day while we sip our coffee

Oh, okay. It used to be just 3 in 1...now they are adding A LOT to our coffee, which makes me wonder if I am missing out much when it comes to the new versions of coffee LOL. I just content myself with brewed, and now I want to explore all these different flavors of coffee in the market today. We sure can enjoy different kinds of coffee in the comforts of our homes without going to Starbucks. Thanks for the post!

Hi there ellovire.i never thought you're a Filipina but now I know you are. Am I right..?lol.. I love the smell of coffee especially in the morning. But I'm not a coffee addict. None of our family member use to drink coffee daily it's just occasional. I start loving coffee when I worked in a fastfood chain who served instant nescafe coffee over a coffee dispenser. But I stop drinking coffee when I was converted to another religion because we're not allowed to drink coffee because of it's caffeine substance. But there are times that I am tempted to drink coffee especially when someone in the office is drinking and I smells the coffee.

Hi mackenzie, what made you think I am not a Filipino? Now I learned something new today again---there is a religion that does not allow drinking coffee because of its caffeine content. Now Im curious as to what religion is that, hmmm? You are right! The aroma of the coffee is so tempting! Good thing you have a strong will to fight coffee temptation. Kudos to you!

Nescafe would be a good choice. I am addicted to Nescafe 3-in-1 especially the black one. If I were you, You should try all of the instant coffee available in the market. then decide what you like best. I have tried several including the san miguel coffee, Kopiko and great taste nothing still beats nescafe thou.

My mother loves nescafe too!! That's what she's been telling me, get samples of each brand and choose from there. Thanks for the response!

I guess that depends on your taste. I also like brewed coffee,but the labor takes time and I also need to have separated thermos for that to avoid brewing all the time. You can try some instant coffee,those 3 in 1,and choose your taste. There's a lot to choose ,I like the taste of kopiko the one in brown sachet.

Thanks for the suggestion. Instant coffee will be of great help especially if I am already late, right? All I need is a mug and my hot water.

When it comes to instant coffee, I like Nescafe or Maxwell coffee. There are a lot of variations of Nescafe Coffee. I like the sweet and mild ones. I don't like dark or bitter coffees.

I have never cared for instant coffee so can't be of any help to u w/it. I use to have a friend that used Taster's Choice but i really don't know if they even still make it, that has been a long time ago.
