In Your Face Morning Mocha made with NESCAFÉ Taster’s Choice

We’re hikers, always looking to cut weight, but not quality. In a hipster world, it’s easy to overlook NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® instant coffee, but maybe you should give it a try. For the first time, or even a new look at it. It’s easy to source in grocery stores, and it’s a bold flavor, perfect to add to trail-worthy drinks.


NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® Coffee Challenge: My challenge was to revisit recipes I created for Trailcooking, and made them again, with NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® 100% Columbian coffee. Considering I love coffee, this was a challenge I could get behind – and finish. I love a rich coffee, and this one works great in trail mochas.

NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® has 6 varieties of roasts & flavors to choose from. Three in new 7-ounce glass jars (1 heaping teaspoon per 8 ounces liquid), and 3 in single serving packets, that now make 8 ounces, 2 ounces more than before (with no price change). NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® is well-crafted coffee made simple. For the full list, visit their website.


In Your Face Morning Mochas



Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Bag the powder into ½ cup portions.

2 Tbsp of instant coffee powder will provide a sweet mocha flavor. 4 Tbsp will give you the “bite” of a double shot mocha.

To prepare: Add 1 cup boiling water slowly to the mix, stirring well. Sip away and wake up!

Makes 5 to 6 servings.

  1. That’s so awesome that they’re working with local farmers to teach them more responsible, and hopefully, sustainable farming techniques for the coffee beans! Love that!!

We'd love to hear your thoughts!
