True to its name, this coffee is indeed very smooth to drink. For me it is smooth because it is a very good coffee to drink and I always enjoy every drop of it. It tastes like real coffee. I know that is taste a real coffee because I grew up in a village that grew and roast coffee. When I drink this coffee, I remember the taste of my grandmother's freshly roasted and ground coffee taste.
It also had the smell of a real coffee. When I opened a new bottle of coffee, I could smell freshly roasted coffee. The same thing happens when I put a full teaspoon of this instant coffee in a mug of hot water. The steam of the hot coffee has the aroma that wakes me up. Another thing that tells me it is a great coffee is it forms froth when I make the coffee. My freshly made coffee may not be as frothy as the freshly ground and brewed coffee but nonetheless it produces froth.
The disadvantage of this coffee is its aroma tends to fade when the bottle has been opened for a long time. The best thing to minimize it is to make sure that the bottle is always tightly sealed.
