Instant coffee?

Any suggestions for cutting my coffee bills?
We've cut down the shopping bills tremendously by switching to Aldi/Lidl, getting milk delivered (so as to limit emergency trips to Tesco)... But one of the few things I can't give up is nice coffee - hence the trip to Tesco where I come out having spent £30 and wondering why I set foot in the place. blush
We usually but Douwe Egberts or the kendo milicano, in refil packs but there must be a better alternative?
Tried Aldi's... Beyond awful. Lidl's fair trade one is good but still pricey given its a smaller jar (we get through a lot of coffee!).

We have Costco and JTF membership, won't buy Nestlé.
Anyone tried the Kirkland one form Costco?

TIA

Thanks Trinity smile
Paying 5p/pint over supermarket prices, supporting the local economy and all that. Plus eggs & potatoes are cheaper do it does even out. (and I just have to ring if I run out of bread etc... Lazy but no public transport or local shop here so a loaf of bread or pint of milk is a 3mile drive away. Rubbish or what.

I decided to switch to decaf last year (I was going around in circles with a health issue and trying to make changes to diet to see if anything helped). I buy a few things in Lidl, so tried their instant Gold decaf coffee and to be honest it tastes much nicer than something like Nescafe. This comes from a previous filter coffee drinker, it's not the same but a good alternative for instant.

LIDL coffee with the gold lid is very good. DH is a coffee snob and likes this if he has to lower his standards to drinking a cup of instant... wink

If you get a battery powered whizzy thing (only £1 from Ikea!) you can froth the milk for lattes etc as well... We are lucky enough to have a fantastic independent coffee shop locally which sells lots of different beans/blends by weight and will grind them to suit your needs, but that little baby has made all the difference!!
