Carte Noire Instinct
Instant Wholebean Coffee
Reviewed by David Savage
I recently had the opportunity to try the new Carte Noire Instinct wholebean instant coffee and it is probably the best instant coffee I have ever tasted.
It came in a 100g tin (makes approx. 55 cups) and is a very fine-milled instant coffee and roast & ground coffee. I added 1 teaspoon of coffee to a cup, added boiling water and smelt the very rich aroma coming from the cup. It has a very smooth flavour with no bitter aftertaste, tasted as good as it smelt and went down a treat.
It is 100% Arabica coffee. A blend of instant coffee and roast and ground coffee and is the first Wholebean instant coffee from Carte Noire.
Overall this is a truly excellent quality instant coffee, one I recommend you should definitely try. At £4.99 it is a bit on the expensive side but it is a luxurious coffee and you can taste the difference between this and regular instant coffee so is definitely worth paying that bit extra. You can buy an 80g Eco Refill in a resealable pack (makes about 44 cups and has 82% less packaging than the tin) for about £3.49.
Available at all good supermarkets and retailers.
