Starbucks VIA Ready Brew

Ok, I don't normally review (cuz normally, I don't care,) but I decided today that I have to give it a try.

When I went to Starbucks yesterday (hey, I had cash!), they were giving away free samples of their new VIA Ready Brew Instant Coffee. So, I did what I normally do & threw the sample in my purse.

Well, today I found myself lacking cash for my regular cup of Joe (now why does that just sound wrong?), er coffee, so when I got home from dropping the kidlet off, I realized that I still had the sample in my purse!

I was delightfully surprised! Normally, I don't like instant coffee. I think it tastes like what I imagine a donkey's butt would taste. The Colombia (also comes in Italian Roast), while not exactly smelling like their normal brew (not bad smelling, just different), was actually very good! It tasted just like their regular coffee. However, if you don't like Starbucks, you're not going to like it. It took about a minute & a half to heat the water and then it was done. A plus: there was nothing to clean up except the little packet to throw away. How fabulous is that?

I think this is a great product. It's a little spendy ($9.95 for 12 packets), but if you have days when you're in a rush & you need to quick fix, I think it's worth it (unless you prefer the taste of donkey butt).

Peace, Love & Coffee

  1. I did the taste test also, and I really enjoyed it! I agree, it tastes a lot different than normal instant.
