Coffee Taste Test: Nescafe Memento
Make frothy specialty coffee drinks with Nescafe Memento and you’ll be the envy of baristas everywhere!
-Lucia Peters and PJ Gach
We here at BettyConfidential are coffee addicts. Not only do we grab a cup in the morning, we are constantly getting re-fueled throughout the day. It’s an expensive habit. If you’re lucky, you can find a good cup of coffee for around $2. If you want to indulge yourself with a frothy cappuccino or any other specialty drink, you can spend $4 on up. That daily treat can add up quickly. The next thing you know, you’re blowing over $20 a week just on hot beverages!
There is an alternative and it is tasty! Nescafe Memento is a trio of smooth, rich and low calorie coffee drinks. Pick cappuccino, caramel latte, or the mocha flavor to kick start your day in style. Each box is $2.49 (SRP) and can be found in supermarkets nationwide. They’re instant beverages that REALLY do froth, just as if they were piped from an expensive machine. The taste is delish!
I, PJ, tried the cappuccino. I heated up a cup of water in the microwave. Poured it into a cup that I had dumped a cappuccino packet in. The water hit the coffee, it frothed instantly (this is fun to watch!) tasted it and was hooked.
This is what Lucia said about her experiences. “I tried both the Mocha and the Caramel Latte flavors, and honestly, I was surprised at how tasty they were. My expectations aren’t high when it comes to instant coffee—I mean, it IS instant coffee, after all—but it’s safe to say that the Nescafe Memento coffees exceeded them.
Mocha is definitely my favorite of the two; it has a great balance of coffee and chocolate, and it’s perfect for when you want something a little more high-test than your standard hot cocoa. The Caramel, on the other hand, is a little on the sweet side, which can be a bit much earlier in the morning. It is, however, perfect for a post-dinner combination coffee and dessert. Bonus: Regardless of flavor, the best part about Nescafe Memento drinks is watching them foam up when you add in the hot water. It’s the coffee equivalent of hearing your Rice Krispies snap, crackle, and pop.”
