    £34,000 of fake coffee seized in UK

    Liverpool – According to local media, a lorry-load of potentially toxic counterfeit coffee was seized by trading standards officers on Wednesday in Liverpool.
    The haul, worth more than £34,000, was bound for Merseyside canteens, shops and restaurants.
    A police and city council team swooped as it headed for a warehouse in Kensington yesterday.
    After the seizure the supplier was arrested and the large, catering-size Nestlé containers examined. They turned out to be fake.
    The 750 gram tins were labeled “Nescafe Original Granules”.
    Inquiries are ongoing to determine where the coffee came from.
    The contents will be analyzed to find out exactly what is in the coffee.

      Well of course it’s fake coffee – it’s ‘instant coffee’! All forms of instant are fake and should be seized and destroyed I reckon!

        I object to that statment Bill, I own the only decent Instant coffee made by Dennis with care and attention

        On the other hand I would agree that most instant coffee is in fact an oxymoron ;D

                I agree the caterers blend is indeed the worst coffee you could have.

                    Ha!

                    I see too much nescafe and Kenco being consumed here in the UK. I cant even imagine how much worse fake Nescafe is than the real stuff!

                    Do you guys have something called Nespresso there? Its supposed to be some kind of real coffee machine marketed by nescafe. I have no idea if it uses Nescafe coffee only but it cant eb good!

                    Thanks for posting this anyway, hadnt seen it on the news.
