“Disgusting..why change the recipe”

Written on: 22/11/2017 by Chance141 (1 review written)

Our family have been great fans of Nescafe Gold Blend but since you decided to change the recipe to something awful, that does not taste nice and leaves an awful residue in the bottom of the mug we too are now looking for a replacement. 4 customers lost and many more by these reviews from fellow unhappy fans of what used to he the greatest brand of coffee… Read Full Review

“The new cheap coffee”

Written on: 22/11/2017 by 349Howe (1 review written)

Our family have always drank Gold Blend since it first came out. We considered it to be the best instant coffee on the market. However since Nestle have decided to make it as cheap as possible we end up with the dregs that taste like something they swept up off the floor. Another customer lost… Read Full Review

“What have Nescafe done?!”

Written on: 19/11/2017 by KarmaDean (1 review written)

Nescafe have spoiled Gold blend for us. It doesn't taste good and the powdery residue at the bottom of the cup is disgusting. We have drunk gold blend for years, but time for a Change. You've lost a lot of customers Nescafe after reading these other reviews! It's a shame… Read Full Review

“Nescafe Gold Blend”

Written on: 17/11/2017 by lynfleet (1 review written)

Why on earth have they changed the recipe? This latest version has little or no aroma and it's tasteless. It leaves a gritty residue at the bottom of the cup. I would sum it up as nasty. I have been a Gold Blend fan for years but not anymore. I am now on the hunt for a replacement. … Read Full Review

“Nasty, Dusty, Bitter!!!”

Written on: 12/11/2017 by Notanumberonefananymore (1 review written)

Disgusting in a word, nasty, dusty, bitter, not like the old recipe, not like good ground coffee either. Spent ages in tesco last shopping day pondering over what to buy, bought nestle's Alta Rica, because it was on special. Won't buy it when it goes back up in price. Would have preferred blend 37, too expensive. Better still the old recipe Gold Blend. Why fix something that isn't broken, this can only be a ploy to make us a) pay more for something that has a fairly fixed price. b) to except… Read Full Review

Been drinking this coffee for years and has always been great. What have they done to it! Awful and so much powdery residue in the cup, you’ve lost me Nescafé. Why change something that’s perfectly good......no doubt it’s cheaper and it shows. Think you’ve scored an own goal with this… Read Full Review

“What a shame!!!”

Written on: 11/11/2017 by Martinez336 (1 review written)

According to Nestle the change to Gold Blend is to make it like fresh ground coffee. To do this the beans have been ground to a finer powder which is left in cup ... taste does not compare other to fresh ground coffee or the original good taste that we WERE used to. Shame and time for a move to another less expensive brand… Read Full Review

“Not the same!”

Written on: 10/11/2017 by Kayleseelleur (1 review written)

I was surprised to see "wet powder" at the bottom of my mug. Since they have introduced the new jar the taste has changed - it is rather bitter and I have been leaving half. I thought it was just me at first or perhaps the sweetener I use had changed so I decide to "Google" and find out what's going on and there are many people out there who don't like the "new" taste. I am going to chuck my jar out and try a different make. If Nescafe want to try a new recipe why don't they do a trial with a… Read Full Review

“New recipe horrible”

Written on: 09/11/2017 by tkPugh367 (1 review written)

The new gold blend tastes bitter, doesn’t dissolve properly - turns to sludge at bottom of the cup. Have been drinking gold blend for over 20 years but can’t enjoy this new recipe and will have to look for alternative brand. Very disappointing - no point in making the jar pretty but the contents awful!… Read Full Review

Sheila28's Comment

Written on: 10/11/2017

I agreed wholeheartedly, I, too, have been drinking Gold Blend for many, many years, best instant coffee available !!!
Now they’ve changed it, YUK !!!! Hate the fine grains at the bottom of the cup and the bitter taste. If it ain’t broken, don’t try to fix it !!!!! I, too, will consider looking for another brand/blend if they don’t go back to the old Gold Blend, which was perfect

“Tastes like mud”

Written on: 07/11/2017 by AthenaShoemaker (1 review written)

What on earth have they done to the superb coffee I have drunk for decades. I was willing to pay a premium price for a premium brand, but this new formula has forced me to look elsewhere. Hopefully, Nescafe will be forced to revert back to the original formula by disgruntled customers (remember Coca Cola)… Read Full Review

“Changed recipe.”

Written on: 07/11/2017 by KeithStan (2 reviews written)

Well my family is absolutely furious about the changes to Gold Blend - it used to be the worlds best instant coffee with excellent aroma and great taste.The new coffee tastes like liquid mud and a residue is left in the cup.I contacted Nestle and they said the new recipe had been tested on general public prior to the change and no-one complained.Well I haven't heard 1 person to say it is better than the original. Please, please, please return to the original recipe. A very disgruntled… Read Full Review

“Gold Blend yuk”

Written on: 06/11/2017 by Reid448 (1 review written)

Bad move Nescafe. Nice jar shape but the contents are aweful. Bitter aftertaste, no pleasant aroma and sludge in the cup if you actually get to the end. Seriously disappointed as are most of my work colleagues who drink nothing other than Gold Blend and Gold Blend Decaf at our company and at home as well. We are all looking for a better product and if their is none we will half our coffee costs by choosing a much cheaper, similar product… Read Full Review

“Change for change's sake”

Written on: 06/11/2017 by FxlSteve (1 review written)

Nescafe have changed their Gold Blend. Gone is the aroma when you open the new shape jar for the first time. Now, as an added bonus, we get grit lying in the bottom of the cup. Nescafe say that they are grinding the beans more to obtain a better flavour and the jar shape is so all their jars are the same with different labels. We shall certainly not be buying any more, most disappointed… Read Full Review

“BIG MISTaKE”

Written on: 04/11/2017 by JanExEmployee (1 review written)

Never thought that Nestle would tamper with this best selling coffee!! Worked for Nestle 27 years always produced top notch products and although they weren’t the cheapest the quality was always there and it was a word we used frequently. But what have you done to Gold Blend? Got 2 jars to drink (ifI can) then will be trying other brands for the first time in 40 years R.I.P Gold Blend original… Read Full Review
