    43 Beans

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Just conducted an experiment on the weight of 43 beans and it is approximately 6.2 grams give or take a little weight for smaller or larger beans

    Now when Nescafe say 43 beans in every cup its is pretty close to a 7 gram single shot
    In another post I found out that instant coffee is freeze dried

    My taste buds believe that Blend 43 must loose over 50% of its original taste from this method

    Any thoughts of enlightenment??

    Yes Yezza

    For visitors we donít like to much :)

    I have not had instant for a few years now

    But I do remember a brand long ago it was called Pablo
    we used to make porridge with warm milk and day old bread and we would sprinkle Pablo Coffee and sugar on top to mix in.
    It was yummy now days kids have breakfast serial.

    Hi

    I also have seen and tasted Pablo many years ago. I think it was at a rescue exercise and we were being catered for.

    Pablo, International Roast and Caterers Blend - the axis of evil :-)

    Not to mention Bushells

    So not only is it Blend 43, it is probably well beyond its use-by date (unless you get lots of unwelcome visitors). *::)

    I weighed a bean mix some were smaller thatís why I said it was close to a 7 gram single shot
    The average would be 7 grams in 43 beans



    So not only is it Blend 43, it is probably well beyond its use-by date (unless you get lots of unwelcome visitors).
    I can safely say the jar in the cupboard is over 43 days old ::)
