Food Grower's Cup - fine coffee from a bag?


http://www.growerscup.com

available here: http://www.campsaver.com/growers-cup.html
and in bulk packs here: http://www.altrec.com/growers-cup/

at nearly $2 per cup, it's clearly not for anyone who is already content with Folger's. however, if you're a coffee snob, it might be worth it one cold morning on the trail. i'll probably order a bag of the Ethiopian and Bolivian to sample.


i also ran across this similar brand, though it's not claiming to be gourmet. it only comes out a tiny bit cheaper. these guys do also have tea, cider, soup, and more in the nifty little brew-bags.

Certainly isn't cheap. However, I'm not much of a coffee drinker but I am interested in trying this stuff.

i'm no connoisseur either - but after having had one of those K-Cup machines for quite a while now, i can certainly taste the difference between it and instant coffee.

currently i use the Starbucks VIA packets on camping trips. it's the only "instant" i've found that doesn't taste like the others. a french press is just too much mess and trouble for me.

I also use the VIA's on camping trips. The French Press is reserved for at home.

My only issue with the VIA's is that it does not totally mix with the water, there is always a bit of grounds left over.

Mocha is the best tho! If you search online, you can find them in bulk for about .80 a cup
