Coffee if you Haven't notice change say no more.I Drank Carte Noire most enjoyable drink as donk like Alcohol.They stopped making it so went back to Nescafe Alta rica with black lid anyway stopped New jar they said Was not all they changed.So Mrs drank the Nescafe the 10 sachet in box changed that to 8 and less coffee more milk in them.They brought back New coffee LOR to take the place of Carte The closest was intense taste crap but better than had yet. I believe they have changed again with taste Horrible unless pour it in.I believe the cause is the price of beans as certain ones are expensive so less put in and less taste.They even brought back Carte Noire but everyone saying Horrible so not trying started back on Kenco but i miss a nice full flavour.People are paying for inferior coffee what is not acceptable and around £5 a jar for 100ml LOR and just angry that the new generations dont care they will lap it up and say nothing am Glad am old as hate to see what they pass off for real coffee in a decade

I don't think any coffee tastes the same now. The old taste buds might be getting a bit frail, but there is hardly any flavour in any of them. The stronger ones are even more expensive but don't necessarily have a nicer flavour .

One thing we did years ago was boil the milk for a coffee, which seemed to make a different flavour. Now we just add cold milk because we're not supposed to drink too much milk. (or lazy)

Maybe a coffee percolator is the answer with some nice roast coffee ?

Hi I drink my coffee with all semi skimmed milk in a microwave use to taste nice. Always tried to get that taste when I was in Spain and they give you a metal flask of coffee and a jug of warm milk .Never could it was there milk and coffee from that region You are right even the cheap crap from 80s would put these expensive coffee to shame The coffee is yuk like artificial flavours what leaves ... at bottom of cup .If found decent coffee would buy box's of it and store as they will keep changing it by putting those special beans in less and less and say those words New Flavour £10 a 100ml jar coming near you and people will pay and keep paying and there keep selling crap

I use Nescafe Gold Barista style. Not cheap but I only buy it when it's on offer!
Also, I use Coffee Mate rather than milk - it will make any coffee drinkable
