Best Espresso Powder

Does anyone have a particular espresso powder they are fond of? I have heard good things about King Arthur's, but haven't found it in stores. I know I can order online, but am making a recipe tomorrow, so need to find it in a brick and mortar store... Any other favorites? Thx!

I've always used Medaglia d'Oro with fine results.

I'm a fan of Illy! But when I don't have instant espresso powder, I've had great results with just pulverizing coffee beans extra-fine in my grinder.

I use the Medaglia D'Oro (I probably misspelled that) but honestly, that's all my store has so .... it's good though!

i love that product in its dry state; i dredge chocolates in it! i've always wondered why its flavor starts off so salty. have you noticed that?
