Where can I buy espresso powder?

I've seen some recipes that use espresso powder--essentially, instant espresso.

But I have not seen this product sold in any supermarket. Anyone know where I can buy a jar?

  1. I've gotten it in the past at Lionette's Market on Tremont in the South End, next to Garden of Eden.

    1. I've bought it at Whole Foods, Fresh Pond. The bottle is fairly small, so you have to scan the coffee section.

        I've also bought it at Whole Foods. Medaglia d'Oro brand instant espresso. I think I've seen the same product at 'regular' grocery stores, but can't remember whether it was Star/Shaws/StopnShop

          Yes, it is hard to find, but very good for baking. Here is what it looks like, to help you pick it out....

            hmm......didn't seem to work attaching the image. Let's try again......

      2. I've gotten some in the North End before (don't know the name of the shop, but it's the first right off Hanover coming from Haymarket). I love baking with it.

        1. I bought Illy espresso powder at Roche Bros. and I've seen it at Shaw's. Sometimes you have to look in the "International" section as opposed to the coffee section.

          1. dairy fresh in the north end and both capone's locations sell the powder.
