SORTED- No longer looking

Purchase made and no longer looking




Not after ground coffee or coffee bags etc or any recipes for said stuff, or "why don't you carry it in a ziploc and put in your amount", or I use a filter etc...-done it or not what I'm after.

Just after some instant in a simple papery/recyclable sachet please:
So wondering if has anyone found some good paper sachets of strong instant coffee in the single serve size?
Only needs to be of the say Nescafe Espresso type stuff/strength, (no Pablo or International Roast please) nor after any gourmet yuppie stuff.
Looking at packs of say no more than about 6 so I can try them and need to be available at any/most supers/shops. Probably not online at this stage.
Anyone have any ideas?

Officeworks might be as close as you get? 100 or so Nescafe to the pack though, definitely not in a half dozen.

You might struggle to find any in a paper/eco friendly packaging as they are packaged to stay fresh.

Make your own, tea-bag style?

I use Coffee Bags from the supermarket.
Each one is wrapped in foil which keeps it fresh until I use it.
Just use the same as a tea bag.

Yeah, just had a look-128 plain Nescafe sachets is the smallest. If it was the stronger and tastier one I might be tempted tp have a crack.
Ta for the info.

Packet of 28 = $10

Agree. These are the best compromise that I have tried, although nowadays I don't bother with coffee in the bush.

In the bush I use 3 in 1 coffee mix sachets from one of the local Asian supermarkets.
The ones I currently have are from Vietnam. "G7" brand in 16 gram net foil sachets. I took about 9 of them in May on a 2 night trip. Who knows when I might get out again.
Allowing say 2 grams each sachet weight, total would have been around 162 grams.
Pros - Lightweight. Coffee, milk and sugar in one small package. Cheap. Just add boiling water and stir. OK taste (for me), these ones are a fairly strong flavour.
Cons - I can make exponentially better coffee with my espresso machine at home. If you don't want milk and/or sugar these won't be your cup of tea ;).
I'm not sure if the packaging can be recycled, assume not.
