    Has anyone tried one of those new instant coffees with ground coffee in it?

    Sorry, long title there!

    I've seen a few new instant coffees around just now that have very finely ground coffee beans in them. Kenco Millicano is one, as is Nescafe Azera.

    Are they any good? Do you end up with a load of ground coffee left in the bottom of your mug?

    We have Millicano, I don't drink coffee and being a nasty mrs have always bought M own brand coffee, but I treated him a few months ago and he absolutely loves it. When friends come round for coffee they often compliment the coffee, so I guess it must be pretty hood, have never been complimented on coffee before!

    I am very pleased for M that you are now buying decent coffee. Drives me nuts that those that don't eat/drink something think that it doesn't matter what they buy when they buy it for others :pet peeve:

    As you were.

    I think Millicano is brill. Have been drinking that since the Nescafe ban in this house.

    We tried Millicano this last week and I have to say the taste is fab! I also find the powder finer than regular instant and so it makes a really smooth half and half which I tend to drink, whereas regular tended to leave gloops.

    I. Don't drink coffee but DH does. He was on kenco blue (either really rich or really smooth?) but carte noire whole bean instant was on special so tried that and he loves it. Have just bought 4 bags while they're half price.

    OH refuses to make me coffee because he doesn't like the smell of it. He's lucky he doesn't get value brand tea bags!

    I recently switched to ground coffee as I prefer the taste generally and have completely gone off instant. Maybe something like this would be good for me...

    I don't like Millicano I don't like strong coffee and found that I had grounds left at the bottom and it was too bitter
