Still not sure what we’re talking about?  It’s coffee!

It’s not just coffee – it’s coffee on the go.  Just heat your water or milk, drop in a few Jiva cubes (1 for every 4-6 oz.), and stir.


Wait – do you mean instant coffee?  Are you picturing those instant coffee crystals your mom used in the 70’s, because I kind of was.  But that isn’t this.

I’ll admit.  I came late to coffee.  I didn’t drink even a dozen cups in my 20’s.  It was always a little too bitter, a little too strong, and just something I didn’t enjoy without lots of sugar and creamer.  But as I’ve become a 40-something, I’ve really begun to enjoy coffee.  I still like my sugar and creamer, but I don’t need as much.  I still don’t like the sometimes bitter flavor, if I detect any at all, in goes more sugar and creamer to mellow it out.

So I always try new coffee with a bit of caution.  I never know what to expect.  When I tried Jiva, I made my first cup in milk.  I knew that it was sweetened, so I didn’t add anything else.  And it was good!  I decided to throw caution to the wind and try a cup made in water with nothing added in.  And guess what.  It was good too!  No bitter taste and just lightly sweet.  Yes, I can drink this without adding a thing.

Jiva coffee cubes are made with just three ingredients.

  • Panela (raw, unrefined cane sugar)
  • 100% Columbian Coffee
  • USDA Organic Flavoring Extracts (in flavored coffees only)

Simple goodness.

      Thanks Erin! I love it too. It was a Christmas gift from my thoughtful brother-in-law and sister-in-law. I wasn’t sure how well it would show up in pictures, really glad it did!

    Did you prefer the Java with water or coffee more? I know my household, it was better with milk – it tasted very “thin” and “water-y” feeling.

    • Becky

      We preferred the hot chocolate with milk, but I thought the coffee was good either way. I usually put creamer in coffee, so milk was closer to what I’m used to. But I was impressed that I liked it in water without creamer too. Did you put in enough cubes? I did usually make mine with the max # (3 cubes in a 12 oz. mug – so 1/4oz).
