Which is the best K4P instant coffee? I find nescafe to be too bitter.March 15, 2013 5:30 pm at 5:30 pm #1147762yytzParticipant
I like the Israeli brand Elite a lot. But I haven’t tried other brands…March 15, 2013 6:29 pm at 6:29 pm #1147763

Is it the same as regular TC?March 17, 2013 12:35 am at 12:35 am #1147765
YesMarch 17, 2013 3:34 am at 3:34 am #1147766
Taster’s Choice. By far.March 17, 2013 1:40 pm at 1:40 pm #1147767
There are two types of specially marked K4P TC (or at least there have been in the past – I haven’t done most of the Pesach shopping yet). One is the regular plastic jar with a Gefen sticker (Volover Rav’s hechsher) as an extra seal over the container (the kind zdad would have a fit about).
The other is the old fashioned glass jar with Rav Charlop’s hechsher. It’s manufactured somewhere in the Americas.
The regular TC is on approved lists as well, even without special Passover certification.
Decaf always needs special Passover certification.
I don’t know if French Roast is included in the approval; from the way the list is worded, it seems not (but I wouldn’t be surprised if it was).March 17, 2013 2:32 pm at 2:32 pm #1147768🍫Syag LchochmaParticipant
DY – I’m thinkng the FR might be good, but now I don’t remember. TC is what we use every Pesach but we soak all the granules in bleach and rinse them well before Yom Yov.March 17, 2013 7:37 pm at 7:37 pm #1147769
I just put the bleach in my coffee instead of milk.March 17, 2013 8:32 pm at 8:32 pm #1147770mishpachashuMember
Folgers regular instant coffee (non-decaf) does not need a pesach hechsher.March 17, 2013 8:56 pm at 8:56 pm #1147771
Folgers regular or any coffee is not ANYTHING. Coffee drinkers don’t drink that stuff. Did you ever taste dirty water? Folgers is almost as bad as that.March 17, 2013 9:46 pm at 9:46 pm #1147772🍫Syag LchochmaParticipant
sharp – try it with bleachMarch 19, 2013 4:43 am at 4:43 am #1147773
Syag, it tastes the same.
Update: I saw all three kinds of TC on the shelf, plus a R’ Charmion certified decaf. I’ve also been told that the OU does approve of the FR.March 19, 2013 12:59 pm at 12:59 pm #1147774squeakParticipant

Taster’s Choice and Folgers. I hate instant coffee, though.March 21, 2013 4:12 pm at 4:12 pm #1147781polisha chosidParticipant
you can get Starbucks ground coffee which can be use with any filter system….. it has to have the OU-P on it for Pesach…its their regular one but has extra hashgocha for the Pesach runMarch 22, 2013 1:21 am at 1:21 am #1147782
polisha chosid: The OP asked specifically for instant coffeeApril 17, 2016 1:35 am at 1:35 am #1147784147Participant
Please bear in mind, that this year on 1st & 8th day Pesach being Shabbos, we cannot soak our Matzo in coffee if in Keli Sheni & above Yad Soledes Bo, as “Yesh Bishul Acharei Afiyo”; This was heard at a Shabbos haGodol Derosho earlier today.April 17, 2016 2:24 am at 2:24 am #1147785
Also, the OU informs me that the French Roast is acceptable again this year with a plain OU. They say all of the unflavored, non decaf varieties of Taster’s Choice are acceptable.April 17, 2016 8:58 am at 8:58 am #1147786–Participant
One is the regular plastic jar with a Gefen sticker (Volover Rav’s hechsher) as an extra seal over the container (the kind zdad would have a fit about).
I generally don’t like the stickers but in this case, it’s actually inkjetted that it is a special run for Gefen.
Currently I use Tasters Choice/Gefen. I grew up with Maxwell House.April 17, 2016 2:04 pm at 2:04 pm #1147787yehudayonaParticipant
Is it OK to use Taster’s Choice if you use a Maxwell House hagaddah? Or is that considered kilayim?April 17, 2016 2:09 pm at 2:09 pm #1147788April 18, 2016 1:53 am at 1:53 am #1147789nfgo3Member
If there is no such thing as “good instant coffee”, can there be such a thing as “the best instant coffee”?April 18, 2016 5:54 pm at 5:54 pm #1147790cherrybimParticipant
DaasYochid – “French Roast is acceptable again this year with a plain OU.”
French Roast what?April 18, 2016 6:44 pm at 6:44 pm #1147791EphraimParticipant
Nespresso makes capsules that are Kosher all year round as well as Pesach under the Chief Rabbi of Basel Switzerland. Their Ristretto is probably the best coffee one can make in their house. It does require having a machine other than the normal one you might use all year. This year with all the days of Chol Hamoed falling out midweek, its well worth the price.April 19, 2016 2:32 am at 2:32 am #1147792147Participant
This year with all the days of Chol Hamoed falling out midweek Right now:- 6 out of 8 years, 2015 thru 2022, so even more worth the price than you Ephraim had realized.
