GIVEAWAY - New Limited Edition NESCAFÉ Gold Single Origin Colombian Blend plus more

ENTRIES NOW CLOSED. Winners announced on 30/10/2012.

WIN a pack of limited edition NESCAFÉ Gold Single Colombian blend plus a Lilly's Life Gift Pack with a selection of some of my favourite beauty indulgences (Total value $165). Four runners up will each win a pack of limited edition NESCAFÉ Gold coffee ($10 each). Entry details below.
 
                              ________________________________________

Did you know that Coffee is the second most valuable commodity in the World next to petroleum?

I guess its hardly surprising when you look at the City I live and its strong cafe culture. Coffee is integral to most people's socialising.  The choice of great coffee abounds and it inspires passion and addiction in many of us.

Regardless of how you like your coffee and the ritual that may surround it, there is something to be said for its slow savouring - alone or sharing it in the company of others. Our individual coffee experiences are unique and personal.

When I was offered the opportunity to try the new Limited Edition NESCAFÉ Gold Single Origin Colombian Blend soluble coffee I jumped at the chance.
 
For one reason only.
 
This coffee is made from 100% Colombian Arabica coffee beans and there are only 5,000 packs exclusively available online in Australia.

It is pretty special. My daughter recently went to South America and had her own unique Colombian coffee experience on a farm in Salento. I have been interested in Colombian coffee since.

The area is beautiful. Just look at the jaw dropping scenery.

Colombia is the biggest producer of Arabica coffee which is known to be the best of the coffee beans. It has lots of flavour and has low caffeine and acidity levels. The coffee is grown at high altitudes where the temperature and soil are perfect for coffee beans to develop and mature. Most of it is grown in small family owned plantations where the farmers pick the coffee by hand, one cherry at a time. They take great care harvesting their coffee crops.
 


Trying this NESCAFE coffee is probably the closest I will ever get to Colombia and the authentic Colombian coffee experience. Some coffee lovers, it seems, are far more adventurous than others....

So 15,000 kilometres away from these coffee farms, I was ready to have my own Colombian coffee experience.  When I received the NESCAFÉ Gold coffee and an inspirational hamper, I decided to have a get together with friends and family to do a group tasting. As well as tasting the coffee they also tested my 'coffee creations'.

I made a Walnut Coffee Cake, coffee cream topped scones (yum!), coffee cream chocolates, iced coffees (with coffee ice cubes), coffee iced cupcakes - there are so many ways to use coffee other than just drinking it. We all had a lot of fun sharing this very Australian Colombian coffee experience. And none of us had to trek up any mountains on horseback to get our 100% Colombian coffee fix, unlike some coffee drinkers we know.
My Colombian Coffee experience
 
And the Verdict?
I love the aroma, the taste and the fact it is not overpowering. It was also great in the goods I baked. Everyone was pleasantly surprised that the "soluble coffee could taste so real" (Melbournites and their coffee!).

Here are a few comments from others, "I like that it is not overpowering". "It doesn't have that bitter taste you get with most coffees". "It's got a classic aroma." "This tastes like real, normal coffee." "It is earthy tasting." "Rounded finish but I thought it lacked a bit of taste upfront." "Smells like real coffee and is very strong in a good way."

The Winner will receive a pack of the luxurious Limited Edition NESCAFÉ Gold Single Origin Colombian Blend (RRP $10) PLUS a Lilly's Life Beauty Gift Pack containing a few of the little beauty luxuries that I love and would like to share with you (RRP $155).

  1. Wow you're having some great giveaways! I love coffee (in case you couldn't guess by my blog's name). I like two kinds of coffee. My favourite is the South Indian filter coffee which I miss given that I don't live with my family any more. I still think nothing can beat it. Here's a link to know more about it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indian_filter_coffee

    Apart from that, I like my coffee strong with skim milk and no sugar. I need the kick!!

  2. I drink long blacks all day long. Then switch to wine he he when the sun goes down. It keeps me awake. She went to Colombia? Gee whizz she is brave. The coffee may be good but how is the crime there? Your baking looks scrumptious too.

  7. I've lived in Seattle Washington for 12 years. Coffee is a way of life here, almost like a religion, and I worship every morning with 1-2 cups of coffee with a little Coffeemate. I don't like to use a liquid creamer, because it cools the coffee too fast. No sweetening necessary! On weekdays, I drink my coffee fast, because I'm too lazy to get up early and I need to get to work. But on the weekends I savor my cups of joe, taking time to appreciate the smell as well as the taste.

    My parents drank Nescafe coffee when I was a kid (back when the world was much younger). So I'm going to check out Nescafe Gold!

  8. Back in the day, dear Lilly, I was a Heavy Coffee Drinker---Real Coffee and Nescafe, too--maybe 15 cups a day....I gave it all up almost 40 years ago---I switched to De-Caf...BUT, gave that up too, almost 30 years ago, except on very special occasions---Funny how these things can change. Is this Nescafe supposed to be very very different from what they did all those years ago? It sure sounds good! Though, in truth, I have no desire to drink coffee any more, at all. In fact, it seems like another life....Drinking coffee and Smoking. WOW! Both, L-O-N-G Gone in my life...!

  9. How pretty does Colombia look in those pictures. I kind of think its nice to know where our coffee is coming from and who grows it.I guess most of the good coffee gets exported like happens in Brazil too. Such gorgeous landscapes. I go to the same cafe every day for my late. Same routine, its just part of my day. This blend looks interesting, I like my coffee strong.

  54. I enjoy my coffee black and hot most often. Occasionally I'll do one of the more dessert type (my opinion) of arrangements that may include ice and spice.
    I visited Greece once on a business trip long ago and still remember the scene in the conference room where these older coffee watched for my reaction to a very strong espresso - it was certainly high octane.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Yes that reminds me of going to southern Italy and having an espresso that literally resulted in smoke coming out my ears. It was also interesting in that there only ever seemed to be men lounging around the cafes drinking coffee. Not sure where the women were - home doing housework perhaps. It was like stepping back into another century.

  55. I like my coffee with cream and a little piece of cheese:) As my Grandma always drinks. I remember how I saw her drinking coffee every morning in my childhood, sniffed it's aroma and dreamed about times when I can drink coffee too. Now my Grandma is 78, she is very beautiful , wise and optimistic woman and I like visiting her and we are drinking our coffee together. So dreams come true:))

  90. I like my coffee strong to provide the caffeine induced motivation needed to tackle the morning chaos. It's drunk in quick sips while trying to make breakfasts, school lunch, change nappies, locate bags and shoes and wrestle clothes onto my apparent aspiring nudist children.
    It then usually accompanies me to the bathroom too, where I apply my make-up one handed, using the other to catch my 2 year old as he attempts a crude gymnastics routine between the toilet and vanity!
    I love the weekends, when I can sit back and just enjoy a great coffee without having to rush around!

  102. I am a college student who commutes into the city to get to school in the mornings; I live about an hour outside of town, and I drink my coffee on the way in to wake myself up for class.
    I'm not much of a hot beverage drinker unless it's super sugary; I like to put so much creamer and sugar into my drink that it turns nearly white instead of brown. Recently, one of my friends also turned me on to the idea of pouring chocolate syrup into the mix. It's fantastic! When I have my coffee, I want to feel like I'm drinking candy.

  110. I put cinnamon in the grounds before brewing. This gives the coffee a more complex flavor, and makes sugar or milk unnecessary.

    Mmmm... Coffee is so versatile.
    I love it in chocolate mouse, in tiramisu, as flavouring in my Baileys, in cake but mostly, I'm content with a lovely latte made for me early in the morning by my husband when Dora has decided it's okay to get up before the sun.

    ReplyDelete
  126. White. With nothing added except milk - no flavours, no sweeteners, nothing else. Preferably served to me on a platter accompanied by a shortbread biscuit by a manservant whilst I relax on a lounge chair by the pool in the mansion that I purchased with my imagined lotto winnings.

  136. I prefer my coffee served to me every morning by David Beckham --- a shirtless delicious David Beckham. (I'd love to tell you more, but my alarm always goes off and wakes me up!!)

  137. I like a smooth strong cup of coffee. The type that would put any normal person in a head spin or make them feel so exhilarated they thought they had just come off a roller coaster! Well my coffee experience doesn't take me on a ride, I take it on my roller coaster ride of life and there is no room for DECAF passengers!!

    Like a roller coaster I start of slow in the morning, regular coffee intake helps me rise up and over the highs and climb out of the lows of the day very quickly. You could say it was mt engine fuel!!! This is mostly how I function during the week but weekends are a different story!

    I guess you could say I use coffee as a stimulant during the week but on weekends it is for relaxing and enjoying what life has to offer. Rather like a ferris wheel I guess. I weekends I like to sit at the top and watch the world buzz around at the bottom. It all looks so insignificant from up here!

    So as you can see I have a serious coffee addiction, I need it, I want it, I love it!! It's my stimulant and relaxant and yet I sleep like a baby at night. That part has always puzzled me!!

  138. A 97 year old client got me hooked on a good Italian coffee, seems to be his ticket to good health. I also love a cup of Nescafe.
