“Awful new taste”

Written on: 31/07/2015

What have you done to gold blend. I have always bought gold blend but the newly labelled jars taste truly awful. Even the smell is bad. It has a bitter after taste and a burnt flavour. Bring back the old one. Lots of customers have complained. I have searched for old stock as I always bought gold blend but now there is none to be found. I will be switching brands. Please listen to your customers… Read Full Review

“Weak and uninteresting”

Written on: 30/07/2015 by Collins333 (1 review written)

I don't drink coffee very much but do work in an office where I have to make a round of 10 coffee's for my workmates. We used to use regular Nescafe but then the management kindly allowed us to upgrade to Gold Blend. The main thing I noticed in the first instance was how weak the 'new' coffee is!! Where a heaped teaspoon in a small mug was ample to make a good strength cup I am having to use one heaped plus a level half otherwise it is much too weak. This is resulting in us using far too much… Read Full Review

“Bitter NOT better!”

Written on: 18/07/2015 by Willoughby247 (1 review written)

I have relied on Nescafe Gold Blend for as long as I can remember but I can no longer do so. I have found the new allegedly improved blend is horrible and unpalatable, even disgusting! It has no right to be compared to gold, not even to cardboard! On the positive side it does smell nice. Taste is subjective but in my opinion, this is undrinkable and even much cheaper brands are easily and vastly superior. The best I could say in favor of it is to put it on a par with some of the supermarkets'… Read Full Review

Always enjoyed a cup of coffee with my dad after a workout at gym. We both said it was disgusting, so made another cup just in case but still horrible. Won't be buying even better taste again… Read Full Review

“Nescafe - what have you done!!!”

Written on: 01/07/2015 by Isaias17 (1 review written)

Bought jar of latest "improved taste" jar. Initial reaction was that it tasted so bad it must be me or it must be a bad batch. |Bears no relation to the previous taste and is now bitter with a long lasting nasty after taste. If this is your idea of an improvement then you have just lost a very loyal customer. … Read Full Review

Absolutely agree with this review. Whatever happened to Swiss quality? Horrible taste. Nescafe know for sure that it is not an improved taste and it is now clearly cheaper to make.

Nescafe Gold is sold all over the world with slight variations in taste but this is the worst I have ever tasted.

Change the flavour back or you will lose all your British customers Nestle !

“Horrific change”

Written on: 29/06/2015 by 41Ashworth (1 review written)

After around 20 years I am never buying another jar of Gold Blend. It was the only instant coffee that tasted decent and now, presumably due to cost cutting, it tastes burnt and bitter with a foul after taste. Absolutely disgusting treatment of customers… Read Full Review

“Gold Blend is now awful”

Written on: 24/06/2015 by Bowman1973 (1 review written)

I used to enjoy gold blend but they have done something to it. It is now awfully bitter and tastes burnt. I won't be buying it again. Fortunately I find that Aldi's Gold coffee is very good and I am now switching to that. I have thrown away a new jar of Gold Blend after two cups… Read Full Review

“NESCAFE GOLD BLEND EVEN BETTER TASTE???????????????”

Written on: 06/05/2015

Whoever came up with the bright idea to alter the previously great taste of Nescafe Gold Blend, should think about looking for another job! Have just had another cup of it and it's truly appalling! All I've been left with is a nasty bitter aftertaste and now the epic quest to find another brand comparable to the original Nescafe Gold Blend! Why, why, why do companies feel the need to 'improve' on great products only to completely wreck them? Unless the original coffee is reinstated I (along… Read Full Review

A good review I fell into the trap of buying two jars, when I opened the bags I noticed that the label had changed in colours. I thought nothing of it until I tasted the coffee, I completely agree with the findings, what a waste of time. Our local supermarkets are reducing the price on gold blend, I can only assume this is to shift this product.

“Iv' Bought my last jar of Nescafé Gold blend.”

Written on: 28/04/2015 by Piperzw306 (1 review written)

I've always drunk Gold Blend but of late I have needed a couple of teaspoonfuls to make it taste anything like coffee. I'm on the hunt for a replacement brand now. It has a cheap flavour now and is fairly unpleasant. I'm sure, for the price I can find a much better coffee!… Read Full Review

“Goodbye Nescafe”

Written on: 23/04/2015 by CourtneyAdair231 (1 review written)

Dedicated buyers for decades whatever the price. Has been a home essential. Latest makeover the last straw and "Even Better Taste" as stated on the jar is an insult. Taste is not "Smooth" and it has zero "Rich Aroma". What a waste of money. Someone at Nescafe should be " Reassigned" and the product reinstated as per it's trade description or withdrawn. Companies who perpetrate cons like this on loyal customers have lost their way. Verdict: do not buy this or any other product and sell… Read Full Review

“nescafe gold blend the worst of the worst”

Written on: 25/03/2015 by MaverickO'Brien328 (1 review written)

I thought my tastes buds were off. I have been a gold blend fan for over 20yrs since round about may/june last year I noticed the aweful change in flavour and thought I was unlucky. I complained at the store I bought it from and was told no its the same. well well I hate coffee in the mornings now because we cannot get it right. now I know what the problem is the jars are getting binned I can see an assortment of 8 200g jars and 2 100g jars. will avoid nescafe from now on. you trust a brand as… Read Full Review

“Nescafe Gold Blend”

Written on: 24/01/2015 by Tenpasenta (1 review written)

I recently bought a jar of my regular Gold Blend, I noticed that the accent over the e was red but thought nothing of it. On tasting it it was just awful, on closer inspection of the jar I noticed it was made in Poland, this may just be a difference in quality between countries, I hope so. I shall be double checking the next jar I buy, but if this is the future of Gold Blend it will no longer be on my shopping list… Read Full Review

“The Taste Has Changed!!”

Written on: 08/01/2015 by Bentonbr430 (1 review written)

Nescafe Gold Blend has been my favourite coffee for the last few years. It is expensive but it was worth it to have such good coffee. However, I've just bought a new jar and thought there must be something wrong with my taste buds as the taste has completely changed! It no longer has that lovely, smooth flavour but now tastes like the cheapest supermarket own brand which I have always disliked! That's why I did a search and I see that others have noticed too. I assume some hotshot… Read Full Review

Thank you for confirming I haven't gone mad. It tastes completely different and I agree with you entirely. I will be looking for a new coffee and if I find anything I will be sure to sing its praises here!

Ex-Drinker's Comment

Written on: 03/03/2015

Nescafe Gold Blend was THE coffee of our family in the 1980s. Until everyone started to notice the abrupt change in its taste. On closer scrutiny we noticed Nescafe did not label '100% Arabica Beans' anymore on its bottle as it used to do. We concluded that Gold Blend was no more the one it used to be - '100% Arabica Beans'. More than a decade has passed since we stopped using Nescafe Gold Blend.

“Gold blend no more”

Written on: 13/12/2014 by Darwind157 (1 review written)

Will not be buying gold blend again.... Switched to another well known brand when a cup of coffee tastes like coffee... Unlike gold blend which is an absolute shadow of its former self. Nescafé should hang there head in shame .... Get it sorted Nescafé or I will not buy any Nescafé products again as they don't even taste like coffee any more… Read Full Review

“What has happened to the great taste of Gold Blend?”

Written on: 10/11/2014 by ctHopper211 (1 review written)

I used to be happy paying over the odds for Gold Blend as it had such a good flavour. Now you have to add at least 2 spoonfuls for it to taste remotely like coffee. It is truly disgusting and worse than even the cheapest supermarket blends. I shall not be buying anymore. It's about time that Nescafe came clean and tell us what is going on!… Read Full Review

Just bought a tin of this for £3.44 on special offer. At this price level its a good coffee. Lets face it, instant can never taste the same as freshly brewed but its ok. The packaging is awesome, the best I've seen for any coffee and looks great on the kitchen counter. I think it hits the spot for an instant and am pleased with the purchase… Read Full Review

“Shame on Nescafe”

Written on: 21/06/2014 by Bailey369 (1 review written)

After drinking Nescafe Gold Blend for many years as a consistent, full flavour coffee, I will now throw in the towel. Have to put at least 2 generous teaspoons to get a terrible cup of coffee, has gone down, does not even taste of coffee anymore. Thought it was my taste-buds but friends have had same problem. In desperation have even tried the Dark Gold, but that is no better. Nescafe should be ashamed, you will never get your reputation back… Read Full Review
