Dear MySwissAlps members,

Are we able to find drip coffee bags in Coops and Migros? Tried to search on their websites for 'drip coffee', but couldn't find the product.

Was only able to find capsules, coffee beans and instant coffee.

Looking for 100% coffee powder (no sugar and additives) that is in drip bags. Please see sample of drip bag attached.

I need one coffee in the morning before I can go about my day😊

Thanks!

Hi Ketoeato,

we have some kind of coffee powder, it is instant coffee, you have to add just hot water to it. Check them here. Did you mean something like this?

I'm afraid the picture you have given doesn't help me to understand what type of coffee you want. I have never heard of 'drip coffee' so I don't think it is a word known in Europe

I don’t recall seeing that type of coffee packaging in Coop or Migros. I would suggest bringing them with you.

The hotels we stayed in all had Nespresso-type coffee machines in them.

Hi Ketoeato,

Switzerland has a strong coffee culture. What you're looking for is probably known as filter kaffee here. Some supermarkets may sell them but if you prefer your own brand, you should bring along a pack with you.

Regards,

Anna

Dear MySwiss members,

Thank you for your replies. Yes, I think filter kaffee is something similar to drip coffee.

Would bring a pack along for our trip for our morning coffee before we head out of the apartment.

Excited to try out the coffee at the cafes in Switzerland too 😊

If you do mean filter coffee powder then it is widely available in bulk packets - see 'ground coffee' here: www.migros.ch/en/category/beverages-coffee-tea/hot-drinks/coffee-beans-ground-coffee

, but your accomodation would need to have exactly the right filter coffee machine (cafetiere) - this is possible in self catering but unlikely in a hotel, so there would be no point in buying your own unless you know you will have a machine to use it in.

I don't think you will find the coffee in cafes in Switzerland has any real difference from anywhere else in the world.
