The classic French Café au Lait is known for its mildness, which comes from its rich milky body. But with this variant, Nescafé has created a Café au Lait, which differs by being particularly intense.
Because even though it comes with lots of milk, as it should be for a Café au Lait, it is quite unusual for a Café au Lait based on Robusta beans. And the Robusta beans are the 'secret' behind this variant's intense character. Because compared to an Arabica coffee, a Robusta coffee is a bit bitter, and with a higher caffeine content. The result is therefore an intense coffee, which combines a taste of freshly roasted beans with a creamy soft milk taste, which, however, has also been sweetened a little so that it does not become too bitter.
Here, Nescafé and others have come up with a bold bid for a real coffee classic, and created a variant that will probably share the waters. But if you are going to Café au Lait, but would like to enjoy one that is a little more intense than usual - or maybe just want a little variety, we are sure that this variant will suit you well.
