One Kg Coffee may sound heavy on one’s ear but, if we told you why we chose Continental Strong in a large packaging, you might be inclined to buy it yourself. During our ongoing quest to find the best coffee every month, we came across this powerful and aromatic product which is 53% caffeine and 47% chicory. To preserve a rich coffee experience, ‘Continental India’ has developed a product which turns loose a fine-aromatic-taste to kick-start any idea, plan, or project. You will be surprised that for the high-quality this coffee offers, not only, is this coffee far more reasonably priced than other products in the market, but also, much more delicious than them.
We were shocked when we first saw the price tag on Amazon, which read INR 610 for 5-pouches of 200 grams. Shockingly surprised because if we were to compare Continental with Nescafe or Bru, we would ‘certainly’ rate the taste of Continental better than the other two. At the same time, for the amount you can purchase 1 Kg pack of Continental strong is the price you will pay for 200 Gm of Nescafe or Bru. That’s not it this instant coffee contains 47% chicory which makes it a healthy version of your most-desired brew of the day.
For those who may not know, Chicory is a herbaceous plant of the dandelion family with white, blue or pink flowers. The flowers or blanched buds of Chicory are mostly cultivated, for salad leaves, however, are also baked and ground to be used as a food additive or a coffee substitute. What, sits as a wild plant on Europe’s roadsides has now become a widely naturalised Asian alternative to coffee. Chicory is a caffeine-free plant with the taste of coffee. The roasted chicory root helps with decreased blood sugar, reduced inflammation, and improved digestive health. Contrary to which, caffeine leads to restlessness, insomnia, and heart palpitations.
Therefore, for obvious reasons, Chicory is far healthier than coffee. By including Continental Strong coffee, in our daily routine, we have drastically reduced the intake of caffeine by 47% and if we develop the liking for the taste of Chicory, chances are we will switch to a 100% chicory-coffee-diet soon.
