Alpine Start Premium Instant Coffee #CoffeeGifts

Anyone who knows me knows I love coffee. They also know that I tend to be a bit of a coffee "snob", with very decided opinions about good and not-so-good coffee. For that reason, I'm not much of an instant coffee person. I might use it in baking every once in a while, but I haven't drank instant coffee in years and years...that all changed, however, when I discovered Alpine Start Premium Instant Coffee.

I received a sampling of instant coffees from Alpine Start for review. Quite frankly, I wasn't expecting much because let's be honest, who ever heard of premium instant coffee? Or instant coffee that actually tastes good? I sure hadn't up until a couple weeks ago! I tried the Original Blend Medium Roast coffee first. These are sold in a pack of eight, and like other instant coffees, you simply pour the packet into a mug, add 8 ounces of hot water, and stir. That's where the comparison ends though because this is instant coffee you will actually enjoy! It definitely earns the name "premium" and isn't just something you grab as a last resort when you need a coffee fix. The flavor is very rich and smooth, not that typical artificial instant coffee taste. This is an instant coffee I will enjoy having on-hand for any time I'd like a cup of coffee and don't have the time (or don't want) to wait for a traditional cup to brew. It also makes it easy to enjoy a cup of gourmet coffee anywhere and any time! Slip a couple packets into your purse or backpack, leave some in your drawer at the office, bring it hiking, biking, road tripping, or just about anywhere else you can imagine! No more frantically searching for a decent coffee shop on road trips, suffering through a cup of typical instant coffee on camping trips, or having a cup of bland coffee at work. This is instant coffee that you will enjoy!

Alpine Start also offers other flavors of instant coffee, so be sure to check them out. I can tell you confidently that this would make the perfect gift or stocking stuffer for any coffee lover!
