SOmehow - someone made a HUGE leap forward in the availability of backcountry coffee. Instant coffee seems like it came from the Dark Ages compared to this stuff. I primarily do expedition adventure races, and have always struggled with how to get coffee out there with me...a thermos is just too heavy, and stopping to brew is way too time consuming. Java juice is amazing. As a coffee snob, I must say that if you like a good cup of rich dark black coffee, you'll be in heaven in the backcountry, or the cliff face, the river, etc. Sorry Starbucks...I'm done with you...Now I can just carry a few packets with me, get hot water (always free) at the gas station, and I am set to go. Coffee house quality, coffee house caffeine, climbing bum price. Only drawback I have found, it is *BEEP* hard to find, so if you find some, buy it, and if you don't like it, send it to me!
