Im not a coffee snob. I drink anything.
I wanted to like Starbucks Via, but honestly every one of them taste burnt, and dont dissolve very well. I dont even like starbucks coffee from starbucks.
I find Tasters Choice House Blend singles fine, cheap, and better than Via. Makes 6oz cup, which is all I want while I wait for dinner to soak.
And I dont care how they make it or what chemicals they use to do it. I dont drink enough of it to matter.
