“French coffee makersdisgrace ”

Written on: 26/07/2015 by kafka100 (1 review written)

I cannot recall any product degenerating as drastically as Carte Noire. It is a disgrace for French coffee makers and generally French public. You must be very talented to manage to turn the best coffee into the worst one. Where is its marvellous aroma? Where has its irresistible flavour gone? Obviously into the pockets of some greedy and dishonest "people". The original producers are also to blame. Decent businessmen should not sell their brand to some Scoundrels… Read Full Review

“I feel let down by this sneaky change.”

Written on: 15/11/2014

We always drank Carte Noire decaf instant. It was the nearest thing to fresh ground coffee we'd ever found. I bought a jar recently and noticed the different label so I did a taste test on my husband between the dregs of the old jar and the newly opened one. The dregs won hands down. I won't buy this product again in the UK but I will have a look in France to see if they still sell the real thing… Read Full Review

“Not 100% Arabica Anymore”

Written on: 12/06/2014 by Elizabeth Stone (16 reviews written)

We have been drinking the 100% Arabica Carte Noire Instant Coffee for a few years now, but it is not 100% Arabica anymore. The company dealing with this product in the UK has also changed but using the same address. They charge the same price but it is definitely not the same coffee. 

Before, we could smell the coffee every time we opened the jar and it was a good coffee smell just like freshly ground beans, but not anymore. What have they done to it? And why? The taste was exquisite and we

Najoola's Response to Elizabeth Stone's Review

I just phoned Mondelez UK to ask them whether arabica rich meant that it was 100% pure arabica and not a blend. I was told that only the packaging had changed not the contents, which were the same as before. When pressed they said that it was pure arabica. I had a feeling that there was some uncertainty.

I think that arabica rich probably means the same as cotton rich when you buy socks. If a product is 100% pure, would you not want to put that on your labelling. Conversely, why remove the statement if it remains true.

Good old Kraft / Mondelez messing up a good product as usual is my feeling.
