The idea behind Tata Cold Coffee Liquid Concentrate was impressive. Sadly, the performance was not up to mark.

Cold coffee. For some, this is simply a beverage. For others, it’s nothing short of an emotion. It’s an essential for some, a non-negotiable me-time factor for some. 

That said, there are certain mornings where you can’t really make time to brew, or you’d rather save that cup of caffeine for when the midday slump hits. A decoction or concentrate is ideal for such scenarios. After a few commendable experiences with liquid coffee concentrates, we tested another brand in our Tata Cold Coffee Liquid Concentrate review.

Our Review Factors

To review Tata Cold Coffee, we gauged it across parameters like flavor, consistency, convenience, and if or not this was a value for money product. 

A brief explanation of these parameters has been explained in the following section. 

1. Flavor

We wished to gauge the strength and depth of the coffee flavor, whether it was more nutty or cocoa-like. Was the characteristic bitterness in place or underwhelming?

As it already contains sugar, we checked for balance and if or not there is room for adjustment.

The instructions are mentioned on the carton. We added the concentrate into a cup and followed it with 200 ml of chilled milk, and half a teaspoon of sugar. After mixing, we topped it with two cubes of ice and served.

The concentrate had a deep hue.

Aroma + Appearance

This is a rich, deep brown-hued concentrate that was a syrup-like consistency. Not too watery, not too thick either. As for aroma, it was nutty, like that of well-roasted coffee beans.

Taste + Consistency

Straight off the bat, the consistency was smooth and uniform. When milk was added, this mixed in seamlessly and an even beverage was prepared.

As for flavor, it was pretty average. Sure, the classic coffee bitterness was present, but we have tasted much richer and smoother-tasting coffees. To better explain, this was not a bad coffee. It’s just that, cost considered, there are better alternatives to this.
