Official Review of the Starbucks VIA Ready Brew

This week, I am scheduled to do the Starbuck VIA Ready Brew demo again and I thought that I would go ahead and give a detailed review about the product.

Besides demoing the product, I have gotten some for myself and I think that if you are into strong starbucks style coffee you will probably like the Starbucks Ready Brew.

What I liked about the Starbucks VIA Ready brew:
  • - Easy to make (saves you from having to brew coffee in the morning, which can be especially good if you are on the go).
  • - Tastes almost like an Americano at Starbucks (espresso like). 
  • - Gives a good jolt of caffine (can be useful if you are trying to perk up, such as while on break at work).
  • - Does not require a coffee maker.  Can be useful for those of you who want to make coffee without having to buy a coffee maker.
  • You control how strong the coffee is (the more via ready brew beans you add, the stronger the coffee will be).
  • Can be made with both hot water and cold water.
  • Useful for making smoothies and frappaccinos.
  • Has better taste than typical instant coffee brands (such as Foldiers, Maxwell house, etc). 
Things I don't like about the ready brew:
  • It is not exactly the same as brewed coffee.
  • The coffee can either be too strong or too weak depend on how many coffee bean packets you use.  The recommended serving is one pack per every 8 oz
  • It can taste like straight up espresso (especially if you use a full packet in a 4oz cup), so if you don't like really strong coffee, you might want to be mindful of that.
Well that is all for the review, and if you want some, there are plenty of places where you can get it (Amazon has a huge collection of them for example).  Also, I will be demoing the coffee at the Albertsons in Monroe, WA tomorrow, so be sure to stop on by between 10:30 am and 4:30pm if you want some.
