"Caramel-toned, richly sweet. Dark caramel, magnolia-like flowers, cedar, baker’s chocolate, a hint of apricot in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned in structure with brisk acidity; smooth mouthfeel. The finish is crisply sweet and resonant, with lingering notes of caramel and apricot."
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
"While most instant coffees have 'chalky' taste, Waka Coffee proves that coffee can be both instant and high quality. You'll be able to notice a myriad of flavorful tones that are caramelly, sweet, and smooth. The finish also has some nice fruity tones. We're big fans of Waka Coffee, and we also love that they donate 4% of each sale to support clean water projects."

"I was a little skeptical, but I have to admit – it was a darn good cup of coffee... it’s definitely a solid option to have in the cupboard when you’re in a hurry. Waka is also a business with a purpose – providing clean water to those who need it."

"It has a light, citrusy, well-rounded flavor profile that exceeds many expensive coffee shop drinks I have had. Being a lighter roast, it would be ideal to drink black or with minimal dairy."

"After enjoying the bold flavor, I noticed it quickly tapered into a smooth and balanced aftertaste where subtle citrus notes were readily discernible. I was impressed by how true this coffee remained to the traditional coffee experience."

"Waka tastes nice and in some cases better than the brewed coffee I've had but overall pretty much on par with brewed coffee... Overall, Waka is a high-quality instant coffee and seems like it would be great for camping trips and other occasions when brewing coffee isn't an option."

"No soapy aroma, and a nice balance of butterscotch sweetness with a subtle citrus/orange acidity... I was able to drink this black with no complaints – there was zero bitterness and no unpleasant flavors that I would have felt the need to cover up with milk/sugar."
