Rated 1 out of 5 by from No longer original and certainly not the best! I have drank Nescafe original for over 10 years, it has always been my favourite, nothing beats it, there was no other coffee I would drink. However..... Nescafe have just changed their faultless coffee to be 'double filtered' with the new red lid and it is absolutely disgusting! I cannot drink it! Never one to waste money but actually had to throw a jar away because no one wanted it! Awful move of Nescafe! In my social circle alone I know of four or five families who are now switching brands. Sorry Nescafe.... you've lost me as a customer certainly and I'm sure there will be a few to follow! Bring back your decent Nescafe original!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The most awful coffee I've ever tasted What has happened to my favourite drink. Since Nescafe Original went Red Top it tastes beyond awful. It has completely lost it's rich, full bodied coffee flavour and become tasteless & bitter with a burnt smell and taste. The double filtering has filtered out all the good stuff and left us with something that, to my pallet (& I love a good coffee) is now undrinkable. I had hoped that my 1st Jar was just a bad batch but having tasted a second jar I have today returned it to the place of purchase and got my money back. I've been drinking it for 50 years but I'll not be buying it ever again. Unfortunalty it wouldn't let me give a rating of less than 1 star. Please Please bring back the Brown Top

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Will not buy again I have tasted other coffees, both cheaper and more expensive, but I always returned to Nescafe for decades. It disappeared from my main online supplier then returned to it but more expensive.So, I eventually bought several jars from another one. I wondered what had happened to the taste. I now see it is "New Improved". Well it is half as strong as before and tastes nothing like the original. I might as well buy a cheaper coffee, different brand. I am very annoyed you have changed the coffee to taste just the same as weaker so called "smoother" coffees. They in fact now taste better than Nescafe.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from New and improved original If you improve a coffee it is not original. I have been drinking Nescafé original since the late 50s when it was sold in tins and was a power. A natural choice because my grandfather worked for nestles in Aylesbury for 52 years and bought starff sales. Last week I bought the New improved "original" poured half of a 300gram jar into a coffee container and sniffed. No smell of coffee just a mild nondescript not very pleasant smell. What have you done to my coffee to detract any aroma and taste from it. I thought it was me getting old until my wife tried it and accused me of buying some cheap brown granules from somewhere. Can you please tell me where can I buy some original NOT improved Nescafé that actually tastes like it comes from coffee beans?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as good as before I usually avoid "brands" because I am on a tight budget. The exception has always been Nescafe, which has been my firm favourite for decades. I have tried numerous other coffees but sought out special offers on Nescafe because I preferred the taste. Sadly, I am really disappointed in the latest jar - the label has changed and I gather so have some of the production methods. I need to use much more than before to taste it. Is this a con to push up sales? I hope not. However, after this jar I am going to start trying the round of "own label" ones again. Sorry, Nescafe. I may, or may not, return.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed Why change the perfect coffee I have been drinking strong black coffee for nearly 40 years. I look forward to my Nescafe Original kick-start in the morning. I have had other coffee's but never liked the taste. I do not like filter coffee and never buy it from coffee houses or cafe's when I am out. The burnt aftertaste totally puts me off. I take my Nescafe with me everywhere even on holiday. I am very disappointed with the new product it leaves a nasty taste in your mouth. Why change it? I wont be buying Nescafe again its dreadful.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not an improvement Why change something that is already perfect, the only answer must be cost saving. While the new version isn't awful it certainly is not an improvement in either taste or aroma. I have always drunk Nescafe Original and for the last few years I have drunk it black so I notice the difference even more than someone who has milk. I have always tried to be the first one to break the seal on a new jar because I just loved that burst of aroma that comes with it, now that has been ruined it's just not the same any more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from New Original? Please bring the other back Got this jar as there was not one with a brown lid in the shop, just thought it was a new jar design and didn't realise until I tasted it that the contents had changed also. Luckily I managed to track down a normal jar as I did not like the flavour at all and will not be drinking it. I have drank Nescafe Original for the best part of my coffee drinking life and now I am desperate to find another coffee as that is pretty much all I drink, about 10 cups a day. Why change something that worked and after looking at all of the latest reviews I am obviously not the only one who thinks that way as all are negative. Are you going to bring the other one back? Please do, but in the mean time I have no alternative to change brands and hope to find a decent coffee. If any old original drinkers have found a good alternative please share with me, thanks
