Australia's favourite coffee*… the perfect blend of bold and smooth

NESCAFÉ BLEND 43...Australia’s favourite coffee*

The team at NESCAFÉ BLEND 43 understands that the perfect cup of coffee is one that is both BOLD & SMOOTH at the same time. To achieve this we take care & craft in the roasting process, applying a little less heat to the sweet Arabica coffee bean & a little more to the bold Robusta coffee bean.​

We have used specially selected beans that are 100% sustainably sourced, with 4C certification.​

Australia’s favourite coffee*, roasted & blended right here in Australia, for over 80 years.

*Based on soluble coffee sales in National Grocery Chain. 12 month period ending 02/02/20 (by value & volume)

New look
Submitted by Dean Berwick on Tue, 06/02/2020 - 03:39
Blend 43 is the only instant coffee I drink, I can walk into any supermarket and just crab the RED tin or jar, now I have to stop and look for my favourite coffee. Not a fan of the new look, I should have grabbed a RED mug when I had a chance

Hi Dean, great to hear that you are a fan of our coffee, we would love to get in touch with you. Can you please call us on 1800 025 361. Nescafé Team

How many different labels do you need to use? I have 3 different tins of what is labelled Blend 43.

Hi Steven, our labels do change from time to time and at the moment we have a limited edition sustainability tin in market. We would love to chat further please call us on 1800 025 361. Nescafé Team
Not just a new look.

Hi, I regret to inform you that the quality of the coffee has changed too. I miss the original, you used to be able to smell the coffee as soon as you opened the jar/tin. Now you have to stick your nose in the jar/tin to be able to smell it. The taste too, is also a let down, being weaker than original. Please change it back.

Hi Jenni, please give our team a call on 1800 025 361, we would love to chat to you more about this. Nescafé Team
Nescaffe Blend 43 Taste Changed?
Submitted by Tony Warne on Tue, 06/09/2020 - 07:39
I have been drinking Blend 43 since as long as I can remember. I'm 59 now and go through 500g Tin every fortnight. Being on a pension, that is a considerable amount for us to pay, but given I enjoy it so much, we keep buying it.

I am very dissapointed to say that over the last 6-8 weeks labels, comments have change - "Made for Australian Taste", now we have "Bold & Smooth", but the problem is hat the last 3 tins have both tasted and smelt burnt.

Today when buying a new tin I honestly was changing brands.....but I decided to try one last tin and if it is not the usual taste, then I will be changing the coffee that I buy.

It looks like you have change the taste and that is very much what I and many others enjoyed. Look on the net..........it is a common topic and a complaint from your loyal customers.

Thank you.

Hi Tony, we're sorry to hear you haven’t been enjoying your coffee over these past weeks and you’re thinking about changing your much loved coffee of many years.
We’ve given our packaging a fresh new look but we haven’t changed the blend of beans that go into our Nescafé Blend 43 range. We’ve made a subtle change to the way we roast our Arabica and Robusta beans so we can deliver a perfectly balanced cup every time, while enhancing the existing bold and smooth taste.
We have a number of coffees in our range and would love to match you with your perfect blend. Please reach out to our friendly team on 1800 025 361.

Hi John, our labels are updated from time to time and we'd love to chat to you about our coffee. Please call us on 1800 025 361.

Label has changed and taste has too
Submitted by Ajay Shenoy on Fri, 06/12/2020 - 11:02
Have been drinking Blend 43 for a while now. I recently bought the bold and smooth because I could not find my regular blend 43. Its only after getting here I have realised that its suposed to be the same but only the label has changed, but I beg to differ. There is so much difference in taste, does not smell or taste like before, seems more like a over roasted to almost burnt kind of taste. Can you please bring back the old "Made for Australian Taste" blend 43 please?

Hi Ajay, we're sorry you have not been enjoying your coffee. We'd love to chat to you further about our range of coffees to find a perfect match for you. We hope you'll be able to get in touch with us on 1800 025 361.

New packaging new taste ?
Submitted by Karen on Mon, 06/22/2020 - 11:22
I have bought Nescafé blend 43 for years now the packaging has changed so has the flavour it’s stronger and not as good
I didn’t notice anything written to advise of a different taste now I have to find a new coffee as it’s stronger and slightly bitter not smooth

Hi Karen,
We’ve given our packaging a fresh new look but we haven’t changed the blend of beans that go into our Nescafé Blend 43 range. We’ve made a subtle change to the way we roast our Arabica and Robusta beans so we can deliver a perfectly balanced cup every time, while enhancing the existing bold and smooth taste.

YOU: 'Bold and Smooth' ME: 'Insipid, coloured water'
Submitted by Lynn Adams on Wed, 07/08/2020 - 03:08
Nescafe Blend 43 has been my coffee of choice for years and always buy the 500g tin. When I needed to renew this week, I was faced with 3 different labels, none of which seemed what I was looking for. However, I decided to purchase the 'Bold and Smooth', thinking the Black may have been too strong and bitter.
I will now have to look for another brand because I can no longer trust Nescafe to suit my taste.
Why can't you simply keep a good thing alone?
Your loss!

Hi Lynn,
We're sorry to hear you haven't enjoyed your recent purchase of Nescafé Blend 43. We have given our packaging a fresh new look but have not changed the blend of beans. We'd love the opportunity to speak to you about our coffee. Please reach out to our team on 1800 025 361.

Changed Label Great. Changed Flavour Horrible.
Submitted by Vicky Pettit on Tue, 07/07/2020 - 07:27
Have been drinking Nescafe Blend 43 for decades. Love the new label and can understand the need to do that. But why, why change the way you roast the beans? The old flavour tasted great! Why change something that works, now all you've achieved is the loss of so many loyal customers.

Hi Vicki,
We’re sorry to hear you are no longer enjoying Nescafé Blend 43. We now roast our Arabica and Robusta beans a little differently to enhance their bold, smooth taste. We have a number of coffees in our range and you may like to try our Nescafe Blend 43 Smooth & Creamy. It would be great to chat to you further, our team can be contacted on 1800 025 361.

Nescafe 43 blend
Submitted by Cathy on Tue, 07/14/2020 - 23:19
I am also a Nescafé blend 43 lover. Labels change that’s no drama but when the taste and smell changes I am disappointed especially if you say only the label has changed. If you want to mess with the taste give samples and get feedback as now I don’t trust I will get my great coffee back.

Hi Cathy, thanks for the feedback, we appreciate it. We'd love the opportunity to speak with you further. Our team can be contacted on 1800 025 361.

Tastes hollow like dishwater
Submitted by Karen Edwards on Sun, 08/02/2020 - 23:10
We have been loyal Nescafe 43 coffee drinkers for years like everyone else here.
I can understand updated packaging but the taste has gone down the gurglar ! Tried the bold and smooth only to find even less flavour, certainly not bold!
Like so many others we are seriously considering changing brands!
So disappointed

Hi Karen, we're sorry to learn you are no longer enjoying your coffee. We now roast our Arabica and Robusta beans a little differently to enhance their bold, smooth taste. We have a number of coffees in our range and you may like to try our Nescafe Espresso for a richer, more intense flavour. It would be great to chat to you further, our team can be contacted on 1800 025 361.
