I actually drink it EVERY DAY!!! Maxwell house only because I didn't have a coffee maker since we moved to Ohio....but I actually just got this week for Christmas the new Hamilton Beach Brew Master but I havent used it yet because I forgot to buy grounds or beans for it
I really don't mind instant if I dont have fresh but I of course prefer fresh brewed!!

I usually have a jar of instant Medaglia de Oro espresso in the cupboard. I use it in a biscotti recipe. I never thought of actually drinking it. For drinking, I buy green coffee beans and roast three days' worth at a time. Grind 'em as I use 'em. Boil filtered water in an old Revere whistler and pour over in a Revere drip-o-lator with a paper filter.

Ugh! Espresso in the morning, please; drip at work is marginally acceptable; stovetop perc for company. I still have some of my Gran's instant in the cupboard--15+ years and I'm still looking for a use.

I think Taster's Choice Instant would be an improvement over the stuff we have here at the office. I'm not sure what it is, but it certainly doesn't qualify as actual "coffee".

Ugh I hate instant coffee.... I am an addict though so I will drink anything to get my fix. I will drink nasty burned gas station coffee if necessary... if someone only has instant.. I will drink it

In the morning at home I use a french press it takes very little time and IMO make a better cup of coffee than my drip machine the only thing that sucks is its not on a timer.

I usually drink instant coffee - we never seem to have the time to make "real" coffee - but I don't really mind - we usually buy the Douw Egbert(Dutch) or Jacobs(German) brands which I really like. Most people I know just drink instant during the week - was quiet surprised when I read this thread and saw how many people hated it But then again my main reason for coffee is to wake up

We uaually drink instant as DW doesn't particularly like other and says it is not worth the bother!!!! I prefer a proper coffee but a bit of hassle making a pot for myself when I do not bring coffee that much.

ewwww yuck. I cant do instant coffee. I have a timer on the coffee pot and its ready when I get up in the morning. And when I am at work if I want more we have all the things to make it with.
I love to cook!!
