For the longest time, I have been intrigued by Starbucks' new instant coffee. I'm not too fond of instant coffee in general, but Starbucks has claimed to produce a higher quality one. I recently bought a pack and tried it out for the first time. It's quite quick and easy. Empty out a packet in your favorite mug (Yes, that is my apple mug), fill it with 8oz of hot water, stir and BAM you are done.
Starbucks did a pretty good job in my opinion. Well for starters, let me just say that I don't expect too much out of instant coffee. Never have. However, this is one notch up in all categories. The aroma, the flavor, the aftertaste, it was all a notch up for instant coffee, and of course, probably 1-2 notches down from a real cup of starbucks. So it's not bad for quick cup of joe on the go.
