You can make your own portion packs by cutting the toes off a pair of pantyhose. Pour suitable amount of ground coffee in and tie in a knot. Store it in a zip-lock bag. Drop in a pot, add water, boil. With a little luck and care you can reuse the 'filter'. Fine grounds make the coffee a little chunky. I don't mind my coffee a little chunky.

People with delicate dispositions can run the brew through a standard coffee filter to take out the fine grounds.

My French Press leaves the coffee a tad chunky too, but the solids settle to the bottom, not really noticeable until that last swallow.

starbucks is really good! not sure about the cost factor but it's the best tasting single-serving coffee i've tried.

starbucks makes an insulated travel mug thing, that hold a half-dozen ind. packs of coffee but i wouldn't recommend buying that. the lid isn't very secure and it doesn't look very durable.

Different people have different tastes. I think you should find out what he likes to drink at home, and then see if the same brand comes in individual sachets.

I personally like Nescafe Instant (which some would say means I have no taste at all). Nescafe also do various sachets, which to me seem like the best option. I keep their Cappuccino sachets in the house for when the milk runs out.

"I think you should find out what he likes to drink at home..."

He doesn't seem to be THAT particular... after all he drinks RR coffee, and how good can company-provided coffee that's been sitting for 4 or 5 hours on the burner BE? I just know he doesn't like expresso, etc.

I wanted something decent, as I think it would be more comforting if it came right down to NEEDING it.

Even with chocolate and lots of sugar, to me it tastes like puddle water with a lot of old rotting bark soaking in it.

That's the best stuff on earth - military grade coffee, once you let some of the water content steam off it'll keep you going 'till the jobs done. Plus it keeps gastroenterologists in business.


Ah yes, I know it well. Highly effective degreaser for engine parts. Kills foot fungus. Resembles the settling pond at the local Esso refinery. Mmm-mmm-good. grin
