Kenco 100% Colombian instant coffee changed taste
Kenco Instant Coffee
I’ve been enjoying Kenco 100% Arabica coffee for years now and the beautiful taste and aroma is to die for!
Not now! As soon as you open a fresh jar there is a pungent sulphur smell. It’s so strong and I can’t face the coffee
Would it be harmful to drink? (If I could drink it that is! 😁)
I have four jars and they’re all the same....exp 2022...
Any advice would be gratefully received!
Very best wishes
My apologies for the delay in getting back to you. : )
It’s tough to answer your question exactly, because Kenco creates several different instant coffees!
That said, you’re not alone in noticing a decline in the quality of your favorite coffee.
This seems to be happening across the board, including coffees from Maxwell House, Folgers, McDonalds, Dunkin Donuts, Yuban and others.
It seems companies are cutting back on the quality of the beans they use in their coffees.
This strikes me as a really bad idea, as it upsets their biggest fans and best customers.
I hear stories of people who have loved a particular brand of coffee for 20 years or more, and have now switched because the taste has become so bad.
I’d recommend you try some different brands.
And if you’re not using whole beans, give that a try. If you don’t have a coffee grinder, you can start with a simple blade grinder at a very reasonable price.
If the coffee you once loved is no longer hitting the spot, try one of our Coffee Detective gourmet coffees.
