I can't possibly drink it. I drink my coffee black, and I think instant is nasty black. I DO use it for baking and cooking. makes a good rub for filet.

Wine is the food that completes the meal.

When I was traveling, I would take Taster's Choice because I could use a quarter for a spoon and stir with my toothbrush end into a water glass filled with hot water from the sink and a sugar pack I stole from Burger King the night before.(did I say cheap hotel and lazy salesman?) Now I buy Eight O'Clock beans and grind em up on the grinder Santa Clause gave me at 61 years old. Nummy!

I would rather bite my right arm off. However, I have instant espresso powder to use for baking. I do have a rather intense coffee/espresso bar set-up complete with grinder.

With enough french vanilla (or vanilla caramel or hazelnut) creamer I can make motor oil taste ok. I drink drip coffee at home on the weekends, and at work during the week. But if I were at someone's house and all they had was instant I would drink it. I might just drink another beverage that was offered as well. Everyone usually has water!

I have to drink decaf because I am breastfeeding, but the instant works great if I want to use milk instead of water, then it's like an instant latte. Not too bad tasting I don't think!

Just following up on this thread which I started several years ago.

Lately I've been using regular ground coffee beans as instant coffee. The difference here is that the grounds will simply sink to the bottom of the mug and settle there while I sip the coffee. Works for me...

I use instant coffee to beef up the "weak" brews in my humble opinion, of people/family/outlaws that I stay with.......I like my brew to be "brawny" so I like it strong.......
The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.

I'm a Swede, who cant drink coffee. Yeah that is messed up for being a Swede, our social life revolves around coffee. My Scottish husband drinks coffee, like a Swede now, he used to drink instant, he refuses now a day and his parents used to drink instant and we are now sending coffee from Sweden to them.

Instant exist here in Sweden but it isnt as popular as ground coffee, people like making a pot in the morning and drinking it all before work. Yes, starting your day with 1- 2 cup of coffee is normal here.

For the love of Cheese!
