VIA Starbucks!

Not bad, not bad at all.

Although my method is a bit different...I mean, why follow instructions?

I use the "extra" bold little packet and 16 ounces of hot water (instead of 8 ounces)...this way my coffee lasts longer...and really I'm more of a "coffee-milk" drinker than a "coffee-coffee" drinker.

I hope this Revelation doesn't ruin my street cred.

So with 16 ounces I'm able to lessen the "extra" bold experience and add my frou-frou stuff.

(frou-frou stuff includes Splenda and fat-free milk or 2% or creamer or...)

I wish I had a picture of all the coffee tumblers I own (and use). I even got a new one yesterday (gift)...complete with little University of Memphis tigers all around it :)

Someone remind me to take a photo and I will...I promise, it's quite ridiculous.

So back to instant coffee, or the Starbucks VIA® Ready Brew (as it's officially known). The sweet lady at the drive thru window talked me into it (I got a sample pack) a few weeks ago and just tried it this morning.

Decent. It wasn't gritty. It fizzed a little bit (which was scary) but that was about it. Good aroma, good flavor. I could see adding a little packet to the next batch of brownies I make (and see if people notice).

Overall: ya done good (again) Starbucks!

I also recommend using milk INSTEAD of water. It gives it a sort of cappuccino-homey experience.

le magnifique!

Oooooooh. I'm intriqued (and I'll let you know how it turns out).
