Stoked Stix – better than ‘bucks

Get stoked. Smooth, rich and strong without specialized cookware. Add hot water and serve.

Ordinarily instant coffee is reserved for road trips and backcountry tours. However, it only took one sample cup of Stoked Stix for me to modify my daily routine. In fact, I sort of sabotaged my original plan, which was to use Stoked Stix instant coffee on a five day tour along the crest of the Sierra Nevada.

As it was, I still opted for Starbucks on the tour. Not because I preferred Verdana instant, but because I found I liked the Stoked Stix so much I burned through it before the trip even began. It was as smooth and rich as my standard cup of fresh pressed joe. Even the dark roast was smooth without the typical bitter bite of burned beans.

Think instant coffee is beneath you? On a daily basis I agree. In fact, I’m ordering up a few pounds of their beans so I can get stoked with freshly ground Stoked beans. If the instant is that good, the Stoked bean is begging to be stocked in my cupboards. But I’m also ordering up some more of the instant for my next road trip which is scheduled to coincide with the next dump.
