Pocket Coffee in Austin

Is there a place in Austin that sells pocket coffee? I've been craving it but don't want to spend an arm and a leg getting it shipped.

    What exactly is pocket coffee?

      I wondered the same thing and found this on WikiPedia

          Thanks, I've ordered from Capri Flavors before when they had free shipping but I hate to spend almost 2/3 the original cost of the product to get it shipped. I was hoping maybe Specs, Grapevine, or another store might have imported some this year.

          They are very addictive, I suppose I'll end up paying $10 to ship the $15 box.

            Spec's is pretty customer-oriented. I'd go to the South location, find a head honcho, and ask if they can source this product for you. You can do the same at Central Market, and maybe Grapevine. *IF* it's available, one of them should be able to get it for you.

              Good idea, I always forget about asking them for special orders. Spec's has always turned down wine order requests saying they need to try it first but I bet they would order food. Thanks!

      I had never heard of these, but now I feel I must have them! Please let us know if Spec's or some other store gets them in stock.

        Mandola's has Pocket Coffee in stock. I saw it there this afternoon and would have wondered what it was if not for remembering this thread!

          Just saw this recently and thank you! It was expensive there but at least I was able to buy enough to satisfy my craving. A million thank yous.
