Best Instant Coffee

Hi, I remember Nescafe Instant Coffee from Mexico. It is no longer made, it came in glass jars with orange lids. It was better than the Nescafe Classico that replaced it. Back around 1981 when I found out it was being discontinued, I went to Mexico and bought a whole case, about 24 jars, of small jars. some of the jars have developed mold, because air got into them, but I love to smell the lids, it brings back fond memories. Even before it was discontinued, it was always in short supply, stores were constantly running out of it. I bet I’m the only person who still has a whole case.
