help? [Sep. 20th, 2008|10:40 pm]

Does anyone have a recommendation for a decent brand of instant espresso? The brands I saw available online are Medaglia D'oro, Ferrara, Caffe D'Vita, Cafe Bustelo...Any of these good?

I sort of want to try and make my own tiramisu someday...If I ever get up the nerve to try making mascarpone...

Cafe D'Vita never impressed me. :/ It tastes just like one of those General Foods Coffees [the ones that come in square tins]. I don't mind those coffees--but if I want espresso, I wanted espresso--not just flavored coffee. :/ If you're going on the cheap, Nescafe make an 'ok' espresso.

If you want something that's close to shop quality - Ferrara or Espressimo from Medaglia.

Thanks! I will keep the brands you rec in mind when I decide to buy. I'd rather go with something good rather than settling for crap (or just ok), at least as long as the price for the good isn't too outrageous.
