Nescafe Review

National Coffee Day is coming up on September 29th. Being a daily coffee drinker, I can appreciate the holiday! My husband is a big coffee drinker too and on the weekends we make a big pot of coffee that lasts us all day. But since he leaves the house so early in the morning during the week, and I’m home with just the kiddies all day, it doesn’t always make sense for us to make a big pot of coffee every day. So I rely on teas and instant coffees to get my daily caffeine fix most days. Being a fan of flavored coffees, I was excited to try the new Memento line from Nescafe.

Memento is a crafted line of foaming, single-serve café beverages that are set to hit retail shelves this September. A box of eight packets will have an MSRP of only $4.29 (that’s only 54 cents a cup!). Bonus – each packet is only 100 calories, a lot less than the flavored coffees you get at the big shops.

I was sent a variety of flavors of Memento to try: Cappuccino, Caramel Latte and Mocha. Each packet of coffee is the perfect amount for my morning cup, and you can’t beat the easy prep – just add hot water! My favorite flavor is the Caramel Latte. It’s creamy and smooth, and the caramel flavor is light and buttery. I didn’t feel the need to add any milk or sugar. These packets are perfect for everyday home use and for travel – all you need to make a delicious cup of coffee is access to hot water.

Be sure to check out their website to request free samples and find out more information, including where to find them at retail. You can also keep up with them on Facebook.
