Medaglia d'Oro Espresso Instant Coffee

    • Strong, bold flavor, yet rich, smooth taste
    • No filters, no presses
    • Packs a caffeine punch


    Medaglia d'Oro Espresso Instant Coffee is a favorite among backpackers who love a good cup of Italian roast in the morning. No need to carry filters or presses, just stir into a cup of hot water. It has a strong, bold flavor, yet rich, smooth taste. Some say it's "a little nutty", others "robust with a hint of cinnamon". We've also heard "smoky finish", "chocolatey", and "funky". But almost everyone says "this is good".

    If you need an extra kick to get going in the morning, Medaglia d'Oro packs a caffeine punch. And it may help you get moving, so have that trowel ready. The flavor is rich and can be adjusted to taste by varying the amount per cup. Experiment to find the right taste for you. Repackage into a small baggie and take only what you need on the trail.



    Add two teaspoons to a 12 oz (1.5 cup, 355 ml) cup of hot water. Stir and enjoy. Adjust strength to taste.

    1. Hands Down the BEST trail coffee.  star rating

      Posted by Rich on 5th Jun 2020

      I have been a Cafe Bustelo drinker for years. It has been hard to find the instant variety. I heard about this coffee from a post in Reddit. This instant coffee is the best damn coffee I have ever had on the trail.

    2. Surprisingly good coffee  star rating

      I added this on a whim to get past 50$ for free shipping. I've never been impressed with instant coffee in the past and prefer a fresh brew, but I figured I'd give this stuff a chance.

      Even my girlfriend likes this stuff. Sure it's not quite as good as a fresh brew, but it's pretty close for my unrefined palate and tastes SO much better than the instant coffee's I've tried in the past. This stuff is my new 'goto' for my hikes.

    3. Good for the trail  star rating

      I'm picky when it comes to coffee but this is pretty good for instant. Brought a small ziploc of it on my last trip and really enjoyed the ease of just throwing it into some hot water in the morning. Gets the job done.
