I'm writing this review on behalf of my husband who is the actual Starbucks VIA decaf Italian Roast coffee drinker. Because of some health concerns he has been drinking only decaf coffee for well over a year. He recently had problems after having a couple cups of what was supposed to be decaf at a restaurant. We believe regular coffee was brewed in what was supposed to be the decaf pot. At a recent visit to our "local" Starbucks, which is 90 miles away, I discovered the VIA decaf Italian Roast and bought a three pack for him to try. He likes strong, good coffee and was impressed after his first cup. He took two packages to a meeting last night so he could have coffee, too, when the rest of the group was having real coffee and drank both of them and came home wishing he had more of the VIA. I've placed a pre-order for the 50 pack available through Amazon and from now on when we travel, he will be carrying a supply of decaf Italian Roast VIA with him so he will know for sure the coffee he is drinking is decaf. It seems expensive until you look at what you would pay for a cup of mediocre coffee at any restaurant.

I love this stuff. There isn't an instant coffee out there that's anywhere near this good. This isn't even in the same category as any other instant. It actually tastes like real coffee! Shocking, but true. It's (no lie) almost as good as freshly brewed Starbucks. It's also great for iced coffee and for adding to smoothies and other recipes that call for a coffee kick. However, the stuff is so darned expensive that I feel foolish buying it. Unfortunately, it has to be a special splurge when my budget allows.

Flavor Name: Tribute Blend
I have tried all the Via blends, and my favorite by far is still Starbucks Tribute. It was so sad when they ran out last year. My back-up is the Columbian, always good, but I have always loved Sumatra. The cherry is a note, and does not come across as a 'flavor'. I do not like flavored coffee. I heat this in the microwave for two minutes in a mug of 1% organic milk. Yummy!

Starbucks writes: . . . "Spicy & Cherry" and "With beans from all three of the world's coffee-growing regions . . . Aged Sumatra, sun-dried beans from Ethiopia, and coffees from Papua New Guinea and Colombia come together to create this spicy and full-bodied blend with dark cherry notes."

Flavor Name: French Roast
I am not a big fan of instant coffee, but buying coffee at work is pretty expensive, so I decided to try Via instant coffee and was pretty impressed! Not as good as real Starbucks cup of coffee but definitely a lot better than a supermarket/hotel instant coffee. The packaging is pretty nice too! I am attaching a picture of a single serving package. I decided it is a very good solution for work and will be buying more.

Flavor Name: French RoastVerified Purchase
As a solo coffee drinker, I've become addicted to the ease and tastiness of Starbucks Via. Instead of making a pot and drinking cold cups of coffee for the rest of the day, with Via I can have one fresh and hot cup whenever I want (these days, I only break out my 10 cup coffee maker for guests).

A dark roast fan, I've been drinking Starbucks VIA Ready Brew Italian Roast Coffee by Starbucks Coffeefor a few months when I spotted this limited edition French Roast pack of twelve. It's delicious. Stronger and deeper than the Italian, but still quite smooth. And delivery was exceptionally fast; I ordered it with two-day shipping and got it the next morning.

Hopefully Starbucks will decide that the French Roast Via is a keeper and start selling in the 50-count boxes.

I would rate Starbucks ready brew coffee quite high. They are very easy to use and I like the flavor a lot. I use them at work where I only want one cup of coffee and hate to have to use and wash my whole coffee pot.

Flavor Name: Colombia
I have a mild addiction to Italian Roast brewed in a French press. Can't get enough. So what's a girl to do when she heads into the backcountry and carrying a grinder, a bag of beans, and a press is out of the question? BOOM: VIA!!!

Lightweight. Potable. Fantastic cold or hot!

Flavor Name: ColombiaVerified Purchase
I like the VIA Colombia instant coffee. It's medium but still a little dark for me, so I make two cups of coffee with one pack... :)
Very good deal from Amazon compare to the price in store.
I'll but this product again.

I am a major coffee drinker. I love this coffee. It is my favorite instant coffee. You can't even tell it's instant. I recommend this to anyone who likes coffee and would enjoy the conveinence of having it ready in an instant!

Flavor Name: French RoastVerified Purchase
I've been a fan of Starbucks Via since it was first introduced. As a pregnant (and now breastfeeding) woman, my caffeine intact is restricted to one cup of coffee a day. I'm lazy and not willing to go to the trouble to make a pot of coffee for just one cup, so I switched to Via. I don't think I'll ever go back. I've tried all the Via varieties, including the Decaf Italian Roast and the various flavor blends (mocha, vanilla, etc.). Out of all the different varieties, the French Roast is my favorite variety by a long shot. It has a bold flavor without the weird aftertaste I sometimes detect in the Italian Roast. The flavor is even stronger (in a good way) than the Christmas Blend Via, which is the second-best variety, in my opinon. Good work, Starbucks, and keep the new varieties coming!
