I highly doubt there's another brand as good and cheaper. I've lurked through coffee forums and back-packing forums and many are happy with the VIA and have said that it is the best instant coffee. So I decided to give it a try. It was very good.
They are a bit cheaper at Costco.

But at about 75 cents per serving they are pricey.Attachment 26569

Our camping days are in our past... I'd love to, once again, wake on a chilly morning, reignite the campfire, heat water and spend 75 cents to hold a mug of coffee.. Good value in that circumstance...

Exactly. I would never use a 75 cent per cup of coffee at home.

I don't think 75 cents is exhorbitant, roadfix, especially if it tastes good. You're better off than if you were paying $5 for a Starbucks.

For perspective, $0.75/cup is a lot for a K-cup. We pay in the vicinity of $0.50-$0.60/K-cup for Starbucks at Costco. I don't drink instant coffee but it's good to know there is a decent option.

My father only has one cup of coffee aday, and it is instant coffee. He also uses oleo margarine. I call it The Great Depression mentality.

When I am there I buy real butter and I have a Nespresso machine and make him a Cafe Americano and he drinks it. He has an aide that makes his breakfast every morning, but I think she is too dumb to figure out how to use the Nespresso machine.

It might be a little too much for roadfix to drag a Keurig along on his backpack camping trip, though, so the Via pack sounds better.
