Combine Expensive And Cheap Coffee

I adore great coffee but with the economy going wacko on my wallet, I've had to get creative. When I want that great flavor coffee, but can't afford the high cost, I buy one jar of my favorite and one cheap jar on sale then mix them together. I swear after the first cup, I really can't tell the difference.

You mention jars of coffee so it sounds like you are talking about instant. I don't drink instant but I do the same with ground coffee like others have mentioned. I use half of the blah tasting coffee and half of the rich tasting coffee and it turns out very well.

When you buy your favorite flavored blend at the store: double, even triple grind it to a powder (percolator grind, if you can request that), then mix it with unflavored coffee and store in an airtight container.

It lasts longer for 2 reasons:

1. Making a a pot or cup requires less coffee when you're making it a with a powder consistency

2. The unflavored coffee absorbs the flavor of the flavored blend.

If you want to save money on coffee creamer, I mix 1/2 cup dry powdered milk to 1/2 cup instant coffee creamer it tastes just fine and I actually think it gives it a little more of a creamy taste (02/02/2006)

Actually, percolator grind would be one of the coarsest possible. If you want fine grind look for Turkish or Espresso grind. (10/17/2007)
