If they are raw juice, yes they taste better. Cold pressing doesn't use any heat, so the fresh fruit taste isn't modified.

I suspect that there is no nutritional benefit, unless the cheaper juice has sugar or preservatives added. It's purely a flavor issue.

When I had an apple orchard, we'd cold press fresh, perfectly ripe apples, and that apple juice was in a class by itself. I'd freeze it instead of canning it, so it was never cooked. Really good stuff, but don't know if that is what you are getting when you buy cold pressed juice. It has a lot to do with the apples that are used.

I grate apples for a particular dessert, into a strainer with a bowl underneath. Using clean hands (of course) I press my palms over the shredded apples until a lot of the juice oozes through the strainer into the bowl. I don't press firmly, the dessert still needs some of the moisture from the apples. But it's usually enough to get a couple or three juice-sized glasses (4 ounces each) of fresh-hand-pressed juice. A dash of cinnamon, a squirt from a lemon wedge, and you have one hella refreshing treat after a day's cooking.

healthwise, any juice not consumed immediately is not really that much more healthy than drinking a soda. This is particularly true for pasteurized juices... just pure fructose really... healthier to eat the fruit, flesh and all. It's not gonna kill you though.. unless you have diabetes.
