Before I left, when I was in Kilaminjaro airport, I grabbed a can of this. (250gram) and it was the best decision. So imagine my DELIGHT when I saw I could get it here on Amazon! You can't understand how amazing this coffee is. It really tastes so close to a fresh brewed Tanzanian Peaberry coffee, you will hardly see a difference. Also, every time I drink a cup it takes me back to the amazing adventure in TZ! The people, cultures, it was breathtaking. I didn't go to the coast, I was inland at Ngorngoro and then on to Ruaha and the bushland areas. Anyway, if you want a taste of TZ, this is it!!! Coffee stayed fresh for 2 years!!

This coffee is as good as I remembered it from Tanzania back in the 80s. Rich flavor, dissolves easily, better than many drip coffees I've had. I echo the warning of some other commenters that it packs quite a caffeine punch. I use a just slightly rounded picnic spoonful of powder for a 6-oz mug; any more than that and I get a caffeine buzz roughly equivalent to a 16-oz Dunkin' Donuts coffee. But the light mix still gives a good rich cup.

I spend a lot of time in Uganda and got hooked on it there. Of course I was at first skeptical but that was all that was available at the time. I cannot believe how delicious this is. I am a coffee snob and despise instant coffees but this is so different and tastes like fresh brewed. It is smooth, not bitter and I love it.
I like a dummy only brought one can home on my last trip so ended up getting here. I still make brewed coffee but some days i don't feel like messing with it and grab this. Plus it takes me back to the days of sitting in grass huts with my friends,
TRY it you will not be sorry.

the stuff tastes great and is not as expensive as you might think because it takes less spoonfulls to equal the strength of the coffee as it does with other instant coffee
I bought it for the fun of trying a different coffee and discovered it was really better than other instant coffee, in fact probably better than many brewed coffee brands

We drink this all the time, and found that the coffee beans are grown specifically to be formulated for this instant coffee. Most people who drink the gourmet fresh coffee are shocked to find out this is instant when we serve it. We've even had some ask us how to get it since it is usually only sold in Africa, but now the secret is out. Good stuff!

I first tried this coffee when my daughter brought me home a can from Africa. I was a little leery thinking it was instant but it is wonderful and I'm so glad that I found it on Amazon and continue to enjoy it every morning. It's such a smooth rich coffee. Make sure you adjust your measurements to your liking, the stronger it gets the caffeine level also gets pretty high.

The product is authentic, i love this coffee, it is the only instant coffee I can consciously drink. The price however is too high for me. I will make sure to get enough stock to last me a while next time i travel to TZ.

I bought this and nescafe classico to try out and break away from nescafe's taster's choice which my wife always gets. I have to say africafe's taste is the one I prefer of all three.
It also comes in a classic metal tin, which I can think of many uses for.
Example; you can use this to keep random washers and nuts after the coffee is gone.
It would also make a great treasure stash container.
You know they just don't make these tin cans anymore, everything is plastic now, well to be fair classico came in a glass jar( but with a plastic cap)
I think I'll buy this again just for that tin,
(Ok, I may be biased because of the tin so take it for what it's worth.)

Seriously though, it tastes really good, even with no creamer or sugar.

Someone recently gave me a 50g tin of Africafe coffee as a present, and I liked it so much that I decided to order another tin via Amazon. I am no expert on coffee, but this is one of the nicest and smoothest coffees I have come across, and it is so easy to use, being truly instant.

We fell in love with this in Tanzania. It's expensive in the tourist shops but not the local shops. The price online is reasonable. Great taste, lovely container , well packaged when it arrived

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but perhaps an acquired taste

I really enjoy this coffee, and I would say it has a lot more flavour than the brands commonly available in the UK. I would say that it's an acquired taste, and I could almost describe it as pungent; I regard that as a positive feature in coffee, but others might not.

5.0 out of 5 stars Real East African Taste

If you like the genuine East African flavour then you will like this. It is an instant pwder (not granules) so can't match freshly ground but it is one of the nicest instant coffees I have tried. I have only recently discovered this and it has already become my main coffee.

The coffee is a little weak; it's not strong enough for my taste. On the plus side it is easy on the stomach. I would buy it again and blend it with other coffee.
