Starbucks now offers a bulk option to their VIA packets. This container makes up to 40 cups. Each serving is 1 1/2- 2 tsp. I love this option and it eliminates all the little packets of garbage. I found it at Target.

The cap feels like it could come off inside of a pack. I’ll probably wrap a rubber band around it.

I found this product last year. Very convenient, and tasty.

+1...this went to Quetico with us last year, and nobody complained. Although the guy from Canada did add maple syrup to his.

Never tried adding maple syrup to my coffee but it sounds good, albeit quirky. Another quirky option is adding honey.

Agree it is better than the packets. It can clump which is mostly a problem for serving the right amount without spilling it.

I also found you have to use it all within 6 weeks or so. The coffee is so fine it starts to settle into itself, and then will not mix as well.

Couldn't you shake the cannister to unsettle the grounds?

I'm a fan of the Veranda Via packets but would like to find the small can for multiday trips. They don't sell it at the kiosk in my local grocerry store.

I dump the instant out of the can and into a zip lock. Works for me.
