What is the NESCAFÉ GOLD BLEND Roastery Collection?
NESCAFÉ GOLD BLEND Roastery Collection is a range of two new premium instant coffees for people looking for a refined, high quality coffee at home. Each of the new blends have been crafted by the NESCAFÉ GOLD BLEND master roasters and gives you the opportunity to experience the refined taste of expertly roasted coffee from the comfort of your own home.
The new range is available in two blends: ‘Dark Roast’ with notes of rich dark chocolate and roasted nut for those that love an intense tasting coffee and 'Light Roast' with notes of caramelised honey and toasted biscuit for those that love a smoother profile. Each blend is rich in Arabica and roasted in two batches for a new unrivalled flavour and rich aroma.
What is light roast coffee?
A lightly roasted coffee describes how long and at what temperature the coffee beans have been roasted. Light roasted coffees are characterised by their light brown colour which means the coffee is has a milder taste, the body is also light and there’s plenty of acidity. Light roasted coffees have a smoother and delicate flavour and often have notes of toasted biscuit.
What is dark roast coffee?
A dark roasted coffee describes how long and at what temperature the coffee beans have been roasted. Dark roasted coffees are characterised by their dark brown colour which means a dark roast is the most intense tasting coffee and is far less acidic than light roasts. Dark roasted coffees have a bold and rich flavour and often have notes of dark chocolate.
What does it mean by 'expertly roasted'?
Each blend in the NESCAFÉ GOLD BLEND Roastery Collection is made of two unique batches of specially roasted coffees. Each batch is individually roasted at a different temperature to bring out the very best flavours of both beans, and only then are they blended together to create one unique instant coffee. Our master roasters call this ‘split roasting’ and have a patent to protect the NESCAFÉ GOLD BLEND expertise in this roasting process.
What is a Roastery?
A roastery is the place where our coffee beans are roasted in coffee roasting machines and where our master roasters bring to life the taste of expertly roasted coffee. Coffee roasting refers to the process where green coffee beans are heated in order to produce the final roasted beans used to create instant coffee.
What does 'rich in Arabica' mean?
Both of our new NESCAFÉ GOLD BLEND Roastery Collection coffees are rich in Arabica, which means the coffee blend is made from majority high quality Arabica coffee beans.

What does ‘tasting notes’ mean?
Coffee tasting notes describe the natural flavours that can be found in each of the coffee blends, like you can see on a bottle of wine. This does not mean any ‘flavours’ have been added, these flavours exist naturally in the coffee beans.
Expert coffee tasters use something called the ‘Sensory Lexicon’ to help them judge the subtle differences between coffees to determine these ‘notes’. These natural differences can come from the way the coffee was grown, milled and roasted and even the type of soil the tree was planted in can make a difference.

What does the intensity number on the front of the tin mean?
The number on the front of the tin represents the coffee’s score in terms of flavour intensity. The scale is 1 to 10, 1 being very low, very weak flavoured coffee and 10 being a very intense, strong flavour of coffee. The scale does not represent the amount of caffeine content – you can find information on caffeine in coffee here.
NESCAFÉ GOLD BLEND Roastery Collection Dark Roast is an 8 out of 10 – which means it has a high flavour intensity and delivers a bold and intense flavour.
NESCAFÉ GOLD BLEND Roastery Collection Light Roast is a 5 out of 10 – which means it has a milder flavour intensity and delivers a smooth and delicate flavour.
Should I try the light or dark roast?
If you like the sound of bold and intense coffee with notes of rich dark chocolate, then the Dark Roast is the one for you. Or if you prefer the sound of smooth and delicate coffee with notes of caramelised honey and toasted biscuit, then the Light Roast is the one for you.
