For those that like VIA (or don't I guess) another option you might want to look into... Coffee Review: VIA vs Taster's Choice

VIA is convenient since it is single serve packed - but I never knew there were other similar options until I read that article. I also never liked any of the darker roast VIA's I tried, just tasted too burnt and bitter to me. The lighter roast Veranda one was alright. I'd been taking them to work too, since all we have at work is crappy Sodexo coffee. But man they are expensive. I think I am going to give the Taster's choice packets a shot (and perhaps jar for work).

My grandparents didn't drink coffee, but knew that my father did.  They kept a jar of Sanka in the house for when we visited.  He always politely drank it, knowing full well how awful it was.

I find most instant coffees, including tasters choice, fairly convincing imitations of roasted grain.  Maybe I like the "burnt" flavor everyone complains about with Starbucks, because in fact I like their coffee.  I am much more likely to complain of insipid drinks than ones that are too strong.

As I've mentioned elsewhere, Trader Joes makes an instant (sold in bottles, not individual packets) that is surprisingly good.  I actually suspect them of using Starbucks, or stealing their formula.

Usually called 3 in 1 and available from Asian markets. Best is probably Trung Nguyen brand (from Vietnamese markets).

At the train station in Lao Cai, where the buses pick up and let off going up to Sapa in the NW mountains of Vietnam, I saw a woman selling packets of 3 in 1 with a paper cup and she had a thermos of hot water. Nice.

When I was young dad drank instant. They didn't even get a drip coffee maker until I was in college. So thats what I started with too. But yeah it was usually just maxwell house, sanka, folgers, basicaly the worse stuff out there. More recently I got a jar of Taster's Choice Suave, and was surprised how well it tasted. Sure I could still tell it was instant but it was much better. If their Columbian scored substantially higher yet, I'm definitely going to give it a shot.

The other big thing to take away here is that its available in the single serve packs which might make it more convenient for backpacking. Although I think I read a larger cup of coffee might take two of their packs.

I only drink coffee black, y'all are on your own with the extras lol.

Yeah, Medaglia D'Oro's good. But honestly, it's not so much work to have a nice hot cup of real coffee.

Until recently, having introduced Kim to BPing, my trips often involved (and will again, soon) hiking to a place, setting up, sleeping the night, bag a peak, stay the night and go home. Usually, it's not getting to the base site that's a hump, it's the next day's work.

As such, I'm really starting to reconsider how I pack in to a shelter (lean-to.) Koreans bring everything, often the kitchen sink, and really enjoy relaxing in the woods. If I'm going to be using the shelter, I can leave the tent at home (bringing a tarp as a backup) and have all that extra space and weight saved for more good stuff.

Yeah, I'm gonna start living easier out there. It's a vacation for pete's sake!

Melitta plastic cone with paper filter and regular ground coffee. Heat water, pour through cone and filter. A cup of regular coffee in the time it takes for the steeped coffee to come through the filter. Virtually instant.

The trick to not making bitter coffee is to not use boiling water which can leach out the bitter oils. If you wait about 10 seconds after the water comes to a boil to pour it on the coffee, the temp will be just right.

I've tried the Via and Taster Choice packets, but went back to the old Folgers singles in a foil wrapped "tea bag".
This week, I found plain Folgers singles in a packet, too. Haven't tried them yet, but they were 7 for $1 at Wal-Mart.

Found them online:

Hmm. Saw the decaf in the store, but there's a breakfast blend and "black silk", too...

That how I make coffee at home everyday, too.

The plastic cone shape/size can make packing it awkward.  I like the MSR 'Coffee Mate' and also made a fabric one with a stiff wire rim (like a teeny butterfly net.)

I've used both a small funnel and the Melitta plastic cone but I've gone to using a Tuffy Tea Steeper with a paper filter. It collapses down like the Sea to Summit bowls. That makes it more pack friendly. The holes in the tea steeper are a little too big for coffee unless you use a really coarse grind.

Hmm... somebody gave me one of those and doesn't work for me with coffee at all.  When I used a paper filter, the water just sat there and didn't drip through at all.  Walls were really thick and the thing weighed a lot.  I think it got stashed with the car-camping stuff.  Did you alter it in any way?

I didn't alter it at all. Works as well as my Melita. I have an old travel mug I use for backpacking and it fits in it perfectly.

Some people like steeped coffee.  Some of us don't.  It has to be poured through to work for me.  I have the mesh-net filter thing, which likes flat and weighs next to nothing.  But the wet grounds are a pain, especially in places where they really need to be packed out (and always a pain to clean, though better if I use a paper filter to line the thing).

And sometimes I just don't want the bother.  Then the Via packets are fine.  Though I have to say that after several days with those, I'm really jonesing for a really GOOD cup of joe.

But the cone and packing all the grounds and having another thing to rinse and burying the grounds is all a bit of a hassle. I got a bit of heat about carrying a couple or few extra ounces in my cookset by many her lol if I added regular grounds, filter, etc to that would be even more. Yeah some have to have gourmet all the time, and I am usually that way at home though I've been known to get coffee out of the machine at work in a pinch and I can get by every now and then with that. And I can say for sure VIA (and hopefully the Nescafe) is far better than the stuff at work! Fine for me for a few days on the trail.  :)

I'm not officially in the "UL" weight range but I've gotten my packweight down enough so that I usually don't feel like I have to fuss over a couple of ounces here and there.  My pack's going to get even lighter as I consume my food anyway.

I do pack out everything but poop.  I never bury food waste and I pack out all my toilet paper.

I don't drink the coffee at work.  :D

Think VIA is actually powdered coffee and not freeze-dried.   Heat water and add VIA, .. you're there.   Went with VIA for awhile but going to try finely ground "turkish" blend coffee with an MSR filter soon.  Not being one of these trail-runner/adventure-racer types, think I can spare a couple minutes prep time in the AM.

Yep, this. I love my Melitta cone, probably one of my older food prep items. Lots of good memories attached to that silly thing. I'm boiling water for oatmeal or dinner plus cleanup so a little more to pour through the filter is okay by me.

Actually, it's far superior to instant.

Not designer coffee, but pretty decent in it's own right....

This is a Latino favorite and beats Via IMO. Not bitter and better than any of the other instants out there. Can be found in just about any grocery store.

Sticks.

Rite Aid had it on sale for $4.99 and I grabbed a jar.

That stuff is INCREDIBLE.....I was a bit concerned at first as I dislike the foamy look of instant coffee but the flavor was so much better than what I expected.

YMMV but wow...this is a keeper...I even had it in place of my Sunday coffee my wife made..(just experimenting...I LOVE your coffee)...((she changed brands a few weeks ago, I don't care for it)).

Thanks for the heads up
