NESCAFÉ® CLÁSICO™ and NESCAFÉ® TASTER'S CHOICE® have different coffee blends and are produced with a different technique.

 

CLÁSICO™ coffee beans are extracted and then sprayed into a hot chamber before they are dried into the final coffee granules. TASTER'S CHOICE® coffee beans are extracted and then frozen before being dried into the final coffee granules.
