OK it's not as cheap per cup as buying ground coffee (or grinding your own) but its great for a quick cuppa, cheaper than the pod machines AND can be composted after use unlike most pods.

I always carry a few of these in my bag for picnics or visiting tea drinkers.

Pretty naff to be honest. And the bags are very weak, so don't squeeze them with a spoon like you would a teabag - they'll burst!
Sorry cold. They taste oO awful

What?! That is the one thing you should NOT do with a teabag ... squeezing the leaves makes them release their bitter flavours. Bad idea.
love the taste of these, but only £1.49 in Home Bargains

With a Sainsburys only 3 miles away and our nearest home Bargains being 15 miles (but I've never seen these when I've gone there) I'm happy to pay 26p more.

Taste is a personal thing, I pre heat my mug with boiled water then brew the coffee for 5-6 mins with a few agitations during that time. Its no where near as strong as espresso but more like a medium - mild coffee brewed in a cafetiere or filter (these methods require additional kitchenware unlike the humble coffee bag).

IMO its better than 99% of instant coffees out there and much less hassle than the other methods I mentioned for one cup but if making 2 or more cups good coffee is worth the hassle of using additional kitchenware.
Better than instant coffee, just , but don't ever buy the red 'Gourmet Italian' brand. Absolutely disgraceful!

I have tried it and a lot of others out there, Lyons I did find awful, just my taste.
Coffee bags are a nice idea but the actual coffee is nasty haven't managed to finish my box of Lyons coffee bags
I really like them but drink mostly drip filtered coffee

​yeah, ok. I'll just spoon it out and drip it all over the place.
Anyway, that's not the problem. The problem is the bags are weak and tea bags aren't.
love it!! ta
