Espresso Powder in Toronto??

I've seen espresso powder called for in quite a few recipes over the years one would think it's easy to find - but alas it's not. Does anyone know where I can get some, preferably in the East end. I've tried Loblaws, No Frills, Sun Valley, Summerhill Market and a bunch of places in Kensington.

  1. The only place I have found instant espresso powder is at Highland farms.

    1. re: RYP

      I've picked up some at Pusateris before

    2. I just use finely ground espresso beans - works just as well, and is probably cheaper.

      1. I bought mine at Grande cheese store (they sell more then cheese, italian stuff mostly) I don't think there are any that are not in the burbs though.

        1. I use plain old Medaglia D'Oro instant espresso. Works great, dissolves fast, widely available.
