Starbucks ‘VIA’ Ready Brew Coffee.



I got one of these to try. It’s a combination of finely ground coffee beans and instant. It looks and smells like proper fresh coffee, but isn’t.

You use the measuring spoon (in the bottom of the lid – see photo) and add water (with milk and sugar if you want it). That’s all you need to do.


Ok, so it’s not quite the same, but it’s as close as you’re gonna get to filter coffee without popping home. I like it and the Mrs also thinks it’s good. There’s a good hit of caffeine in there, so it’s no idle pretender either.

The can has 24 servings in it and costs around £7.

It’s pricey, but for the odd special cup, or for use when camping, I’ll be buying more.
