Thoughts from Low-sal-life

Most times I brew up my own coffee at home or go out to coffee. But there are times while camping or doing road trips where it is especially nice to have instant coffee available. This is one of the only decaf instant coffees I know of, and it's actually really good. Unlike most other instant coffees, this one dissolves easily in cold milk or water. Another great use for the concentrated flavor is to use it for baking and specialty desserts.

Where to find it

I recommend you buy it from a Starbucks store directly, the prices are much better. But if you must, shop around and definitely look at the quantity per pack. You should expect to pay $1-$1.75 per 8oz cup. Sometimes eBay has some decent prices too.

Also, please note that the packs from the grocery or Amazon vary - they used to be 12, and I've seen them with 7 and 8 now.

Walmart (pack of 50):
