Trader Joe's Instant Coffee Packets


As I've confessed many times, I'm not exactly a coffee connoisseur. Or even a coffee appreciator. But when it's twenty cents a cup for my daily dose of caffeination, I say "Bring on the java!"

Sonia's fine with this light roast too, because it's not only cheap, it's also ridiculously convenient to just pour the packet into hot water. There are no troubling mishaps with sugar bowls full of ants, annoying blunders with creamers that have been sitting in the fridge too long, or problematic incidents with unrinsed French presses. Just good, cheap coffee, ideal for travel.

I give this product a respectable three and a half stars. Sonia will throw out four on this one.



Bottom line: 7.5 out of 10.

  1. I forgot about these! They were a staple of mine for a while, as it is one of the more palatable instant coffee products out there. I usually brew fresh-ground beans at home and have pretty much cut out sugar intake, but for travel and convenience, these are far better than the hotel coffeemakers, etc. And great for camping as well!

    1. P.S. I usually put 2 in a full-sized mug.

    2. Yes--excellent for camping! And I can see how two packets might make the flavor a little stronger. Good idea.

  2. I agree it great for travelling. It doesn't hurt to ask the flight attendant for hot water and mix it up. TJ's should offer plain sticks for those whom like to dress up. Or cookie butter coffee sticks

    1. Yup, MUCH better than any airline coffee I've ever had. (That stuff is pretty bad!)
