    This sounds quite like instant coffee with sugar. Artisan instant, but still instant.

    Too much pre-processing, in my opinion. In the end, we will be fed with food cubes:
    1 cube food for salad and 1 cube food for main course.
    I just don't like it. Too robotic.
    I prefer to see real coffee and, if possible, real coffee beans. And of course, eat real food. Thank you for the review.

    What about BPL related use?
    Website says one cube weigths .5 oz right?

    OK, so each cube weighs .5 oz., and it takes 2 cubes (1.0 oz.) to make a real cup of joe, right? That same ounce will get you 7 packs of Starbucks Via, and they don't have that foo-foo sweet stuff in them.

    All comments noted, no problem.
    Fwiiw, I drink filtered (ie real) Espresso-blend ground coffee, black, no sugar. Even out back.

    Cheers
    Edited to clarify what I meant by 'Espresso', and to spell it correctly. :-)

    You haul an espresso machine out there to get the required 10 bar (135 psi) pressure?

    Thanks for the review. Looks like Starbucks Via is still the only way to get a decent cup of black coffee without going as far as cowboy coffee.

    I'll pass this on to my wife. She like the sweet stuff. I just don't care for any sweetener at all.

    Thanks for the review. Nice to know that others prefer coffee for the pure taste of coffee not additives. The Jiva coffee cubes will not be in my backpack.

    I was hoping that a block of coffee flavored sugar would at least boast some decent calories as a silver lining but alas, only 30 calories.

    Try to look at the bright side. Those 30 calories will support the metabolism of ~65 calories of body fat(7 grams). ;0)

    Good, just what the marketplace needs. Another mediocre instant coffee with a gimmick.

    Like coffee? Here's a read.

    A Beautiful Cup

    We use to get articles like that one all the time.

    @ Roger Since this product is of no real interest to you, why the review?

    My humble guess is that he thought it might be of interest to others on this site – and I'll bet it is (though not me, I'm a black, no sugar coffee guy myself).

    It's easy to forget, but I believe there's a large (relatively) population of folks who visit this site who are not exceptionally weight conscious (I'd be one of those) and who like sweet coffee. They just don't post. Big lurker population, I think.

    Edit to add: oh, and they were free….. :-)

    Why would anyone go and ruin a coffee with sugar?

    Lurkers. Oh yeah, them.

    Carry on.

    I call BS. Anyone who actually gives a poo about real coffee would call it espresso, not "expresso".

    Why? Doug I has it right. I thought some readers might be interested.
    Oh – and spelling corrected. :-}

    While I am normally a black coffee drinker, the best coffee I ever drank was a sweetened coffee in South America. If this coffee is anything like that, I'll be one happy hiker.

    Jiva ordered.

    Any Australian BPL readers can have the left-overs for the cost of P&P within Oz – say $10. (Postage to USA is ~$25 – may not be worth while?)

    There's about 23 standard Jiva packets and at least one of each of the other flavours, if not more.

    Cheers

    There's always the Handpresso.

    (No, I'm not crazy enough to carry it in my backpack. But it has gone car camping with me.)

    +1. I normally drink coffee as black as my soul but I've had some sweetened Turkish coffee in the Balkans which was pretty dang good.

    "Why would anyone go and ruin a coffee with sugar?"

    Because there is a lot of swill out there masquerading as coffee, which can only be improved by adding an adulterant.
