Starbucks VIA® Ready Brew Pike Place® Roast
In 1971 we opened our first store in Seattle's Pike Place Market. Reflecting on our heritage inspired us to create this delicious blend with smooth body and subtle flavors of cocoa and toasted nuts. Brewed fresh every day in our stores, it's a rich, satisfying and balanced cup.

I like the stronger blends of coffee. This particular blend hits the spot. Not too bland and not too strong either. Perfect with a really sweet bakery item as it will level out everything.
I prefer light roast coffees. This has a smoky wood flavor. However, if you are someone who likes dark roast or french roast, this may be right up your ally. I used to love french roast when I was younger.
We love the rich flavor or this VIA PIKE PLACE, it is the same wonderful flavor that the pike place in the Starbucks freshly made!!!
My husband's favorite e Starbucks coffee is t he Pike Place Roast. At home we use t he Pikes K cups and he always chooses it when we visit the Starbucks stores. When we go on vacation and stay in resorts or hotels, they never offer Starbucks coffee so when we found the instant we decided to try it. He loves the taste as well as how easy it is to make. Now, when we go on vacation we stock up on the Pike Place VIA. Although he Likes the fresh brewed best, the VIA is a great alternative.
I have tried almost all of the medium to dark roast VIA coffees and they all have been overly acidic in flavor. I like a good, rich flavor but this was extremely robust.
The word that comes to mind is "smooth". It tastes the same as brewed coffee but without the fuss and mess.
Love this great-tasting product and the portable nature of the VIA concept in general. Great to take camping or anywhere the availability of palatable coffee is in question.
Starbucks is my favorite coffee. I bought the Pikes for work. no one else drinks Starbucks but I sure love it and drink it all the time
a good brew that works well with creamer, syrups, mocha, and just about anything you want to add to you cuppa.
In short: Very good coffee and aromatic while so easy to have in the office.
I work in an office where the "coffee" is horrible. I also work in a building inconvenient to a Starbucks by foot, having these little pouches in the desk makes it easy for me to have very good coffee in less than 3 minutes with the aroma.
Cannot compare it to going to a coffee shop but it is great for that 3pm perk when time is short.
