I'm not going to lie, I was a bit skeptical of this coffee at first. Coffee is a must for me though (regardless of being inside or outside) and after giving these a try, 5 stars all around. The coffee tastes really really good -- it's far better than the instant options. I normally do a french press if I'm car camping, but not all my friends drink coffee so I either prepare too much or drink too much. So a single serving of tasty coffee is perfect. It's also much less effort than a french press (no cleaning), especially if you plan on camping for multiple days. It does take a bit of time to pour the water over, but worth it!
