How NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® Coffee Boosted My Day

By Amber B

When it comes to coffee and home brewing I have just about tried them all. Yes folks I am a coffee addict. I love everything about coffee; the taste, the aroma, and of course the boost of energy it gives me throughout my day. I prefer ground but have had some instants that weren’t bad at all.

Recently I was challenged to swap out my favorite coffee with NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® for a week. Of course being the coffee lover that I am I accepted open heartily. I said to myself lets see what the buzz is about this NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® instant coffee.

When I received my NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® mission kit in the mail my first thoughts was how cute. The vendor supplied me with a box of NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® 100% Colombian instant single serve packets (16), a clear branded 7 oz glass mug (wish it was two of them, I love sets lol), a branded spoon, 3 recipe cards, a coupon to purchase a NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® coffee of my choice, and some other material to help me jump-start my challenge. I was ready to go. I decided that I would start my challenge the next day.

As my loyal readers know I am a blogger and business woman who works from home. I have my own home office in which I have set up to make my day run efficiently and smooth. This home office includes a Keurig coffee machine so I don’t have to leave my sanctuary for coffee runs (I drink coffee all day). To accept the NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® challenge I needed to make sure it would not disrupt my day in any kind of way. So that night I decided to swap out my Keurig coffee maker with my electric tea kettle.

Here is my diary of my NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® challenge:

Day 1

I started my day looking forward to drinking my cup of NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® coffee. I filled my tea kettle I left on the kitchen counter and headed back to my home office stuck it on the base and waited for my water to heat. While the water was heating I opened up one of the packets of NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® 100% Colombian coffee I was provided and dumped it into my mug. I was nervous and anxious at the same time, would this cup of coffee give me the boost I needed. As soon as the kettle clicked i poured my water, the aroma was in the air. It smelt like it might be a good day after all. I stirred well, added some sugar and creamer, now it was time to take my first sip of my new coffee. After drinking it I was like yuck, it was weak, it wasn’t what I thought it would be. I thought to myself I did something wrong. I decided to add another packet of the NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® 100% Colombian coffee to my cup. Here we go again sip number two, not bad, different not what I was use to. It would do, after all it’s new to me I just need to learn how to perfect it.

Day 2

 I decided on day two, that I would try a different approach to it, add a flavored creamer to my NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice®I made me a cup using two more packets and added my favorite caramel creamer to the mix. A little more tasty today, this could work. I knew I would have to hit the supermarket later because my box of NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® 100% Colombian single serve packets (16 packs in the box) was running low with me using two packs at a time. I drank three cups of coffee on day one, on day two the box was almost done.
Later that evening when I went to Stop & Shop I glanced at my choices of NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® and decided to go with the house blend. I was excited to see what day 3 would be like.
Day 3
On day three I opted to start my day with my new flavor of NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® House Blend. The directions stated for me to add two teaspoons but I decided to add three since the House Blend was labeled as a light blend coffee. I made my morning cup, added my sugar and caramel creamer and was good to go. Today I had four cups and I actually liked this flavor better, or maybe the NESCAFÉ® was growing on me.
Day 4
Business as usual, drinking my NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® and working. I get a call from my sister, she is stopping by today. When she arrives I offer her a cup of coffee, she looks and says where is your coffee maker. I told her I am trying something new. I held up my jar of NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® House Blend coffee. She laughs and says since when do you drink instant coffee? I smerk and tell her how great it taste. My sister knows me best; she says you must be doing something for your blog, I guess I’ll have a cup. I made her a cup and we laughed and enjoyed our coffee. She said it wasn’t that bad.

Day 5
This morning I had my normal first cup of coffee to start my day. At lunch time I decided I would try something different. Remember my mission kit I received in the mail that included 3 recipe cards, it was time to put one of them to the test. My specialty drink of choice would be the ‘Creamy Caramel Latte’ and I would even use that cute mug that came with my mission kit. After following all the simple directions this turned out to be my favorite drink all week with the NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice®
