Thailand Coffee? Nescafe Gold Instant – VLOG 3

It’s expensive, as far as instant coffee goes across the world, but there is a good reason for that. It doesn’t taste like mud – like every other instant coffee I’ve tried in Thailand. I’ve tried a lot of them too – every one I could find over the years. My wife even peeled off the price of it before she handed me the jar this morning. Afraid I’d flip out I guess. Why flip out? I’d pay 500 baht per jar of this stuff. There’s no other choice. It’s a lot cheaper than good coffee back in the USA.

I stopped drinking hot coffee in Thailand many years ago, it just doesn’t make sense to make near boiling coffee and wait for it to cool off in 90 degree weather. The coffee isn’t that great anyway. Where is my all-time favorite – Hawaiian KONA Coffee in this place? Right, missing in action.

Where is the Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee?


Nescafe Gold is what we’ve got – so enjoy it. I can drink it milkless and sugarless, it’s really not that bitter, and definitely not overbearing like probably every other instant you’ll try.

If you drink a different one – and like it – do let me know.

Living in Thailand and Got a Pretzel Craving?

Makro has these pretzels from Germany occasionally, sold in packages of 3 at a time. I always buy 9! They hit the spot. I cannot find pretzel rods anywhere – but, I’m not in Bangkok either.

Try these Saltletts – they’re not bad pretzels, and really – your only choice from what I’ve seen – unless you’re in Bangkok, there are probably other options.

Best Instant Coffee in Thailand?

My vote goes to the Nescafe GOLD. You can’t find it in 7-11, but it’s at Makro and Tesco both, last time I looked. It’s much more expensive, but the difference between GOLD and Red… is significant enough to spend the extra THB.

Thailand instant coffee - Nescafe Gold

I’d almost say this is the best coffee available in Thailand. Did you ever notice that every coffee you order at Starbucks or that other Coffee place tastes just like coffee and steamed milk? Everything is a latte it seems like.

Anybody else drink something different? Tesco has a number of instant coffees. I’ve tried one other that looked like a designer Thai brand – and it was pure swill.

If there is something better than this – please let me know.
