Product Review: Nescafe Memento


Nescafe has recently come out with an instant cappuccino product, Memento. All you need to enjoy the beverage is 8 ounces of hot water. The best part is Memento is guilt free because it's only 100 calories per cup.

Memento comes in three flavors: cappuccino, mocha, and caramel latte. I received a sample of each flavor to try for this review. I found the beverages to be similar to convenient store cappuccinos. It had flavor and foam but you could tell it was made from a powder and not fresh. Similar to other coffee beverages, you might need to customize your beverage to taste with sugar or cream but you might not.

  • Cappuccino - After taking a sip, I added a single packet of sweetener to the mug. The flavor was good but I like my drinks sweet.
  • Caramel Latte - The caramel flavor was mild but good. I didn't need to add anything to this flavor sweetness wise and I enjoyed it.
  • Mocha -The mocha was my favorite of the three flavors but I needed to add a sweetener to this flavor as well. It tasted good plain, but I just like a sweeter chocolate taste. I prefer milk chocolate to dark chocolate any day for that reason. Just like the caramel, the mocha flavor was muted but you could still taste it. I did notice that the mocha, unlike the other flavors, had a layer of powder on the bottom of the mug so the muted flavor might have been because I didn't stir enough.

Coffee is one of those amazing drinks that everyone will take differently. That's why there are so many types of strengths, flavors, and add-ins. Your tastes may differ from mine so I recommend trying these drinks. In fact, Nescafe believes the same thing and is currently offering free samples of Nescafe Memento on their website. The sample will come with two packets but the site doesn't state which flavors.

Nescafe Memento also told me about the upcoming feature on the NescafeUSA Facebook page. Starting in September 2012, you can read the unprofessional opinions of a celebrity coach. I'm not sure exactly what that means but it sounds like something funny for your coffee break.

Disclaimer: I was given a free sample of Nescafe Memento to review. I also received additional samples for a giveaway which will be featured on an independent post.  There was no compensation for this review and all opinions are mine. Any facts regarding the products were provided by Nescafe.

I find this product the closest thing to a capuccino in a coffee shop....but it is difficult to find where to buy it!
