Mountain Brewed Robusta Instant Coffee – Detailed Review
This instant coffee comes in a flat-bottomed resealable pouch pack. A 100 gram pack costs Rs. 199 and has a 24-month shelf life.
Thumbs up for the premium and well-designed packaging. The storage of this coffee is quite hassle-free, thanks to the flat-bottom pack design.
The main ingredient here is pure robusta coffee powder.
This coffee is a fine powder like most instant coffees available in the market. It is dark in color.
We liked that it doesn’t contain chicory, which is common in many commercially available instant coffees.
How did we test this instant coffee?
We tested the coffee in the following three common ways :
- Cold coffee (with regular milk).
- Hot coffee (with milk).
- Americano (black coffee with water and no sugar).
Team Mishry’s Take
When we first opened the pack, the aroma was quite strong. However, it eventually began to decrease when kept in the ziplock bag. As a result, we highly recommend storing the coffee in an airtight container.
When we had this as black coffee, the flavor of coffee was quite strong, accompanied by subtle woody notes. On having this as a regular coffee (with milk and sugar), the intensity of flavor and aroma toned down a bit.
All in all, the coffee is not bitter and is non-acidic.
What is coffee acidity? Acidity is one of the major characteristics used to describe the taste of a coffee. It is primarily a coffee flavor sensation that sends a pleasing sharpness to the front of the mouth. It instantly lights up your palate when you take the first sip of coffee.
The coffee mixes seamlessly with both water and milk.
A quick mention on the pricing. This coffee was relatively cheaper as compared to some of the leading coffee brands including Nescafe which costs Rs. 170 (for 45 gms) and Bru priced at Rs. 220 (for 100 gms). This on the other hand is priced at Rs 199 for 100 grams.
- Non-acidic and not bitter.
- Mixes seamlessly.
- Premium packaging.
- Easy to store.
- Moderate pricing compared to other popular instant coffee brands.
- The aroma tends to diminish upon opening the pack.
