Readers offer many tips for finding instant coffee

As reader Alan Van Ees maintained, even in our Starbucks-and-Keurig-centric world some people still use instant coffee, but it’s getting harder to find. And fellow Taste of the Town readers have responded to his appeal.

“I still use instant coffee for drinking, cooking, basting meats and baking,” emailed Ellen Meade. “My go-to brand is Nestle Classico,” which, she said, can be found in the Hispanic section of supermarkets including Wal-Mart Supercenter.

Barbara Wagner emailed to recommend Starbucks Via instant coffee, which is available at Smith’s and Vons as well as at Starbucks shops.

“There is only one place to buy instant coffee,” emailed Jim Guynup, who added, “This is the one instant coffee that makes me go for a second cup.” And that would be Trader Joe’s 100 percent Colombian Instant Coffee.

And Rose Rinehart recommended Nescafe Tasters Choice — regular, not decaf — which she usually gets at Costco but says can be found in any supermarket. …

For Mark Berman, who’s looking for steak and kidney pie, three readers emailed with the same recommendation. Ann Brown, Irene Balan and Janet Hudson all suggested Crown &Anchor British Pub at 1350 E. Tropicana Ave., with Hudson adding that she goes there just to get this dish. …

More on chicken livers: Shonnie Marxen, who reached out a while back in search of reader suggestions for local places that serve them fried or sauteed, contacted me this week to tell me she and friend Ann Burns had tried a bunch and wanted to report that the best are served at Bob Taylor’s Ranch House at 6250 Rio Vista St. Marxen said they’re served as an appetizer with a sauce (but, she said, you also can get them without the sauce) and in such a generous portion that for her and Burns, the livers and a salad make a satisfying meal. …

More on Gilcrease Orchard: Ann Kaiser emailed to say it’s now open from 6:30 to 11:30 a.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays for the hot summer months — no doubt welcome news to the reader who emailed me to complain that it’s too hot to go to the orchard at 9 a.m.
