Since Noah came on the scene my coffee intake has increased about 100%. He doesn't sleep through the night and he wakes up really early. I have to admit that I don't start my day with coffee I always have to have a cup of tea first thing to try and put a smile on my face but by mid morning I'm usually on the coffee to perk me up a bit. When Noah first arrived I was sent some Kenco Instant coffee with no obligation to write a review, it was just an act of kindness on the PR's part (thank you for understanding the tiredness us mums feel!) and I did appreciate it and actually ever since I've been a Kenco convert. We always buy it now.
Kenco Millicano is Kenco’s first ‘Wholebean Instant coffee’, a clever combination of instant coffee and finely-milled beans that is quite simply the closest thing to ‘proper’ coffee in an instant. It offers the convenience of instant with the quality and taste reminiscent of roast and ground coffee.
Recently Kenco have brought out the Kenco Millicano stick packs; individual handbag sized packs so coffee lovers can enjoy delicious Kenco Millicano wherever and whenever they want.
Small in size and individually wrapped, they are the perfect addition to any coffee lover’s handbag – just pop one in your handbag to enjoy your favourite Kenco Millicano coffee on the go; perfect for all the busy women out there who need a quick boost!
I tried the Kenco Millicano at home first as to be honest I didn't really have any opportunities to use it out of the home, as my regular haunts with Noah have delicious coffee anyway. Then on my return to work last week I did take it as I'm not a fan of the coffee brand we have there and we also have a filter coffee machine that makes pretty bad tasting coffee (we actually call it MUD in the office). All I need to say is that it's really good cup of instant coffee! It tastes like proper ground coffee. I can see that this would be a good thing to carry around say if you travelled a lot. My only complaint is that in my bag full of random adult, toddler and baby items is that the box gets a bit crushed! I'm not sure of the solution to this, a small tin would keep the individual packets clean, dry and impossible to tear but then this isn't really environmentally friendly, perhaps a plastic packet with a resealable zip? Anyhow, this is a small detail and in no way detracts from the product.
Kenco Millicano is £3.99 for the 100g tin and £2.99 for the 85g refill pack. Kenco Millicano stick packs available from February 2012 with an RRP of £1.99 per box of ten. For more information on Kenco Millicano visit www.facebook.com/kencomillicano.
