A low flat whitener fo you coffee.
We think this is the ideal companion to coffee, it does not cool the coffee like milk does and you can add as little or as much as you want to. We have run out an d now heat our milk but it’s not the same It’s all a matter of taste of course.
Great... if you like your coffee black.
As usual, the makers can't leave well-enough alone. Before, 2 heaped spoonfuls gave you a pleasant enough white coffee. Now however, you need a minimum of 4-5 heaped spoonfuls to get anywhere near a white(ish) coffee. Kind of defeats the whole 'light' thing when you end up shovelling 5 heaped spoonfuls into your drink...
Won't be buying it again
Instructions on the packaging still say to add two heaped teaspoons, but it would take a great many more to achieve the same degree of creaminess as before. Nestle have definitely messed with the ingredients to the total spoiling of a once good product. I won't be buying it again.
Unpleasant taste with new recipe
I have used coffee mate for years and years However Nestle have recently changed the recipe and it is not good. The taste is very different and not pleasant I will no longer be able to drink coffee with this Would not recommend
I have been using this for the last 3 years. It used to taste great but since Nestle changed the ingredients it tastes awful. I phoned Nestle and told them so. The picture on the website is out of date, showing the old tin. The specifications are also out of date. So a one star effort by Nestle and a one star effort by Tesco.
Have changed the ingredients.
Was the best low fat whitener you could buy, until they changed the ingredients. Not as creamy as it used to be, coffee loses its crema quicker, and as already mentioned you now need a lot more to lighten the coffee. Avoid.
A Change for the Worse
Until recently I would have given this at least 4 stars, but Nestlé have recently changed the recipe / ingredients (the same time as the new design). It now needs much more of the powder to achieve the same level of whiteness to the coffee. I can only assume this is a ploy with the aim of selling more. However, I will now be switching to another brand.
