After a web search I see BPL actually sold something similar called Java Juice.

The Java Juice web site seems dead now though, http://javajuiceextract.com/

I don't know if anyone else posted this, but I use one of these with a melita paper filter in it.



VIA is okay, but it takes two packages to make a cup for me so it gets expensive quick.

Via or Dk Choc covered espresso beans on 06/17/2013 12:55:45 MDT Print View

If I can heat water, I use Via. Tastes great in the woods :)

For fast and light, I take Dark Chocolate covered Espresso Beans!
Pros
- Dual purpose (caffeine AND energy boost)
- No waiting
- Eat while hiking
Cons
- Depending on the brand you get (I like Trader Joe's) can get gummy in the heat.

Honestly...if you can get over not having that gorgeous hot liquid in the morning, they may actually be better than coffee.
