Have You Tried The New Instant Coffee From Starbucks?

My boss came to work today with packets of Starbucks VIA ready brew. (yay boss!)

It's the new thing Starbucks is trying to push: Instant Starbucks coffee you can carry in your pocket for emergency caffine hits.

My verdict?

Meh--it's not bad. It's sort of like higher end Hotel room coffee that you brew in their 2 cup coffee pots.

Sounds frightening.

That just seems wrong to me...just wrong.

Sorry.......I drink tea. But I still love Starbucks for the cider and hot chocolate.

I only drink coffee in emergencies as it revs me right up. Come to think of it, perhaps I should inject a little coffee into my morning because I've been awfully tired lately.

Aafrica: Yep--and if you are like me...hazelnut biscotti creamer and splenda packets :D

Laochie: It did! That's why I had to try it.

Cindy: I know, right? But it's not bad--if you're stuck somewhere without the possibility of brewed coffee.

PoP n Ice: I love Earl Grey but found I really need my cup of coffee in the morning or its migraine time for me later in the day :(

Sampled it at costco this weekend, It was alright. A slight step-up from regular instant coffee in taste, but a large step-up in price.
