I don't love instant but I have that Pampa Brand on my shelf in our camper to use when we're camping. I personally like it and you can't beat the price of $1.00. I like it as it doesn't make my heart race like some coffee does.

When I know I'm having guests while camping, I make brewed coffee. You can't beat brewed coffee around a wood fire while camping.

I never liked instant to start with BUT that is all the in-laws have.

My wife agreed to make me a cup. She was not paying attention and put three teaspoons into one cup (like she would for the coffee maker). I did everything I could not to spray it out.

The coffee Pampa is gross no taste whatsoever. I'll stick with sale brands.

Pampa is not coffee in my book....maybe it really is CHEESE????

Foldgers and Great Value(Walmart) both taste so much the same and are very strong.....I wonder if they are from the same coffee company???

One a side note about green tea......Prince Of Peace Organic, weakest tasting green tea I have ever drank.......no caffeine kick either..........anyone else think so also????

I don't know if I'd use it to make a hot coffee beverage with but for it's intended use, a cheap way to make home made blender frappes, it did the job well. Try this recipe out I made.

Frappes, a little too upper-crust for my liking.

Hey now, I may be a wee bit fragranced but I am not a yuppishcoffeejunky and I do not need spresso. I also will not for any reason drink instant coffee, blech. I love a good fresh roasted coffee or I use Maxwell House and Folgers but only the Medium Dark and Dark Roasts with a preference for Dark Roasts.
I also do not drink the iced, fluffed, frozen, whip creamed crappe either. Straight coffee or no coffee.

I'm not a big coffee drinker because most coffees are bitter but I have been buying Pampa instant and it is good if made right . I noticed when I first made it that it was very weak if made like regular coffee , but if you use 2 1/2 times the amount it is very good with a coffee creamer like Coffee Mate. It doesn't have a bitter taste like most coffees. I like it with baked goods. I can't tell you if it will give you the buzz that you are looking for because caffeine doesn't have any effect on me.

Come on comparing Keurig coffee to instant is like comparing Las Vegas to bingo down to the VFW.

My mom bought Pampa as she doesn't like frenched pressed coffee. She left some here. I used it to make some brownies with and I noticed there is zero smell and zero flavor. In the garbage it went, and good riddance after finding out it's made with cheese. Yuck!

I do like baking with instant expresso coffee. Megdalia something or other. It makes all the chocolate stuff yum.
