    Backpack instant coffee

    Who’s drinking what these days? I have always used the Starbucks via packs but they are getting old. Coffee is a huge morale boost and energy shot, especially on sheep/goat hunts etc. With all the craft coffee roasters out there you would think someone has a product in an instant packet.

    Black Rifle Coffee makes an instant coffee which is pretty good.

    I don't know that there's much "better" options out there other than some ridiculously priced niche instant coffees. I enjoy G7 Instant Espresso (not the 3-in-1 coffee) packs at less than half the cost of Starbucks Via, but they seem to be only available at Asian grocery stores. I'm typically what some would call a coffee snob, but when it comes to backpacking my only requirements are hot, tastes something like coffee, and has caffeine. G7 Espresso fits the bill and costs about $0.30 each, Nescafe Gold Espresso is decent and much cheaper, but doesn't come in packets.

    If you don't mind packing a bit extra weight and bulk, buy an Aeropress Go and bring your own ground coffee.

    I stick with what works.
    Starbucks Via
    1. Human over population
    2. Government burden and overreach

    Depending on the length of your trip and if your really counting ounces, Melitta makes a small plastic pour- over filter holder. A dozen filters and the piece of plastic weighs nothing. You only need a couple table spoons of your favourite coffee for each cup. I bought mine at Walmart for about $7.
