Nescafe Cappuccino crowns caffeine king

I’m not big on coffee, but I am impressed!

For me coffee is spelled “quality time with friends”. I like coffee best at a restaurant or coffee shop and I usually order cappuccino; I enjoy the smooth, creamy taste. I’m not really one for potent bursts of flavor on my palate. You won’t find me ordering espresso.

The only other aspect that I l-o-v-e is the smell of freshly brewed coffee first thing in the morning. It makes me dream of exotic locations, luxurious hotel beds, buffet breakfasts and the crispness of a new day filled with promise and opportunity. But even in my fantasy I don’t drink the coffee, I only smell it.

In my home I usually buy coffee for those times when a friend pops in unannounced. I usually have coffee with them as a hospitable gesture and enjoying the fellowship of good friends, but you will seldom find me having a cuppa all by myself.

Recently I have discovered Nescafe Cappuccino, coffee that brings restaurant coffee home to you. Now that can work for me. Granted, it is considerably pricey compared to other coffee on the supermarket shelf, but for someone who doesn’t drink coffee often I am quite prepared to cough up at the till.

Each box contains 10 servings of the creamiest, foamiest ...most delicious treats and all you have to do is to add boiling water. I do prefer adding a teaspoon of sugar and a dash of milk. Anything extra depends on your personal preference. Practice makes perfect but with the ingredients of each sachet being the same every cup can now simply be perfect.

Nescafe also offers Decaf Cappuccino, Cafe White Chocolate and Latte in South Africa. Even wider varieties are available in other parts of the world, e.g. Unsweetened, Vanilla and Skinny. No longer do you need expensive coffee machines to have a decent cuppa in the morning. Even your average Joe can now feel like a caffeine king.

Besides maybe adding a swirl of whipped cream and a dash of cinnamon as a finishing touch, homemade coffee doesn’t easily get any better than this!


  1. It is a nice product, but I like my little coffee plunger and freshly ground coffee, have 4 cups a day :)

  2. Ah, I like it too! But I have almost 10 cups of coffee a day, so can't afford it.

    My mom, on the other hand, drank this stuff multiple times a day for about three weeks and gained 5kgs instantly! Scary, nê?

  3. Growing up my parents use to always ask me to make them coffee and due to that I vowed that I would never drink coffee. Only at the age of 24 did I start drinking coffee and still only drink one cup a day. I started off with Ricoffee but then discovered Nescafe which has a much stronger taste and aroma so I switched. But since discovering Nescafe Cappuccino about 2 years ago I haven't looked back, it's delicious!

  4. CINDY, what I like about the plunger - even if not the percolated coffee so much - is that it is easy to make a quick 1 - 4 cups depending on the size of your plunger. Still more affordable than a fancy machine, quick and efficient. Over time you develop a feel for the perfect spoon measure and timing to get it just the way you like it! Do you buy a specific flavor of coffee or do you choose from a variety depending on your mood?

  5. Hi FESTA! Something in your coffee is working - you paint beautifully! haha The saying "too much of a good thing" rings true, doesn't it? Did your mom reduce her coffee intake or did she switch to another kind of coffee instead?

  6. IMMORTAL, I've never been fond of making coffee either - not my forte. The only thing you now look back on is the last perfect cup of Nescafe Cappuccino! :)

  7. Never heard of that product before - will have to give it a try. I don't usually like drinks that come in "packets," but maybe this one will be different. Love the design of your site - the colors are way cool.

  8. Thank you kindly, Tracy; I'm glad you like it :) Maybe if you've tried the coffee you will remember to let me know what you thought of it. Feel free to visit again :)
